It was the same layout as the last time (ISP-2), only he popped the last jump then. I think he's building back to a 4Lz3T 3A 4F program.The costume was fine. Skating of that quality doesn't need bedazzling.
This is the 4th time I've seen this program in competition (if you count JO) and it's the 4th different jump layout.
The takeaway isn't the costume, it's that the experimentation continues.
Pictures of people (and pets) that you could buy for the extortionate rate of $65 per cutout. ...
... Anyone could buy one, so I think there are a few skaters in the "crowd". ..
Maybe so... I'll have to go back and review. I think you may be right about the eventual layout. I haven't seen a 4Z since the first ISP.It was the same layout as the last time (ISP-2), only he popped the last jump then. I think he's building back to a 4Lz3T 3A 4F program.
Although they are not skaters, Alexa's mom, Brandon's dog and one of Alexa's animals are there. Same row as Chris.There is nothing extortionate about a fund-raiser for a worthy cause, IMO.
Proceeds from the cut-outs are going to the USFS Memorial Fund, which supports skaters.
Yes, examples of skaters in the audience of cut-outs:
- Mark Ladwig- Chris Knierim- Carly Gold
Hanyu would do an over-the-top costume to that music. Flowing sleeves...ruffles...red....major league bling...and feathers! Does Hanyu ever wear a costume that doesn't have feathers????
Utterly failed, my stamina isn't what it used to be. I did manage to catch up on both the skating and the comments hereI think Ichat didn't manage to wake up.
I'm sure I spotted (1) Ted Barton and (2) Chris Knierem in the cutout audienceJust out of curiosity, who are the cutouts?
I think it would be funny to skate in front of other skaters. Imagine skating in front of cutouts of Peggy Fleming, Elvis Stojko, Alexei Urmanov, Nancy Kerrigan, and others.
