Is it true that Keegan’s skates were lost and he’s breaking in a new pair of women’s skates? Please tell me this is a joke.

Apparently Keegan's luggage, including skates, have finally arrived this morning!
Oh thank goodness. Though apparently he was landing quads yesterday in a pair of brand new women’s skates and wearing jeans.

Rumors on Twitter are saying Gogolev withdrew due to COVID. This was one comment: “I was informed his rink (Great Park Ice) is a COVID mess, with an unvaccinated coach who is COVID positive, and parents dropping off kids who are positive in learn to skate. I'm awaiting official word.”

Is Wesley Chiu Olympic eligible?

The way everyone else is skating, if he has a good long I'd just as soon go totally off the board, and he seems to have potential 🤷‍♂️

After the short, Maddie looked amazing and ready, a pleasant surprise with Wesley, Piper and Paul are in a league of their own and pairs they seem to have the most struggle, lots of best skates of the season but I wouldn’t say Olympic ready but we’ll see after the long today. To me the short showed MTM will get the big scores if they pull off an ok performance today.

Congratulations with your wonderful men skaters. They might not all have the biggest jumping tricks in the business (quite a few without a quad and/or a 3A) but they definitely are a joy to watch. Even in the lower ranks there were so many with great edges, musiciality and good spins. Inspiring. Never a boring moment in watching these young men. Of course, some had a bad day but on the whole it was just a lovely event, the SP at Nationals. And special Kudos to Keegan who skated well despite him not having got his own skates back until very late. I know (and it was mentioned by Ted) he had actually been practicing on new ones. What a fighter.

Congrats to Keegan, Roman and Wesley, a well-deserved national title, a very good fight back to deliver a strong free skate and a glorious senior debut. 🙂 Also, kudos to Joseph, who has been fighting so hard with injuries this season to make a come back at the Nats. After all, the future in Canada seems to be very promising for the men discipline.

Three out of the four disciplines are for certain in regards to who Canada will send to the Olympics. I think the second spot in Pairs is the only questionable decision from this National Championship. Rooting for an upset. But, Radford and James probably make more sense. But, I think there is a 20% chance, it could be the silver medalists. Toss up for me. Wish Radford and James would have earned it.
