And Vincent, what can I say, wears his heart on his sleeve which I find endearing, and hey, he did five quads himself.

    Our men's team acquitted themselves very well.


    They did great!

    I still think that Vincent is the still the most undervalued US man. It must be hard that he is always #2 to Nathan when he is amazing in his own right. You have to wonder if in a could more years, we will have a another Hanyu / Uno situation. Uno is now the reigning Olympic and World Silver medalist, but is still the #2 Japanese man.

    What Vincent needs is consistency. I think he's heading in the right direction with his last few events. Next season will really be his chance to make a strong international statement as to his competitiveness.

    Programming note:
    Coming up next on NBC is Tirico live interview with Nathan, Vincent, Adam.



    ETA:
    The interview was fine, but nothing special. Only a few minutes total in length, so each of the three had a chance to speak for barely a minute or so. I think Tirico was coming up against a hard out. The interview was the last segment before 11:00 pm ET.

    Fly. Change Foot Comb. Spin

    I'm happy to see that with the exception of a few minor last minute switches, nate took my advice, lol!

    Here are some more of those cool longer-exposure photos. The first one is incredible, of Nathan in the middle of a quad. In another one, his legs seem to disappear ...

    It's a whole series of photos of Nathan, Vincent and Adam during their Free skates. https://www.teamusa.org/News/2018/Fe...pic-Free-Skate

    From Meryl Davis' recap of the men's free skate with TeamUSA.

    As an athlete myself, I’m grateful for the reminder that you have neither to be perfect nor must you win in order to possess the qualities of a champion. https://www.teamusa.org/News/2018/Fe...ever-An-Option

    I'll always have the image in my mind of Nathan's joy, as he performed his FS and at the end. I think it was his best performance of Mao's Last Dancer ... possibly, for me, because it was so emotionally resonant. In a way, you could hypothesize that Nathan felt the program more because his experiences of the past week moved him closer to the character. But also, he skated free.

    And yes, there's that ,,,, he won the free skate, by a whopping 8.91 points, when he'd been behind Yuzuru by a staggering 29.41 points, going into the FS. It's hard even now, for those numbers to sink in.
