On the Ice
Jimmy was the strongest of the US men, landing all of his jumps cleanly. I think he's clearly trying to "work" Swan Lake, even if it's not in his modern music preferences. His TES was still pretty far ahead of his PCS. He is in second overall.
The surprise 3rd place finisher is Eric Sjoberg. Also a clean skate, and he's showing more polish as well.
Less successful among the US men were Camden (fell on his first two jumps and one spin seemed to cover half the rink, he's still not getting it together) and Maxim Naumov, who I thought was committed and passionate and had great spins but his first jump was invalidated entirely for some reason? I know he popped it, but I don't know why he would get no credit
Because men have to do a solo Triple or Quad and Maxim only did a double.
