As a skater, you're not supposed to pop at all of course. When they pop into double, it's not good, it's not planned it's a mistake.Well, I suppose in cases like that, they are supposed to always jump double, but he miscalculated
I mean, if he popped, in the combo he should have went for a double, because there is zero risk to Zayak that way. Basically, I hope that he starts getting competitions and learns how to handle things better, and it is not the end of the world.No, I mean the first one. He wanted to jump 4S, but wasn't able to do it. As for me, this jump looked like 2S with mistake on the landing.
No, he would not. Didn't Deniss just land his first ever clean quad? Just skating beautifully would not be enough to skate for Russia. With his competitive track record he would have been "buried" in obscurity long time ago. Being a decent skater not from Russia has its certain merits. Kolyada is a better skater than Vassilyevs and he does not get 95 pcs.... and he has to jump quads although I bet he wish he did not have to.If Vasiljevs were Russian, his PCS would have been 95.
You have hard proofs for that or it's just armchair expert ideas based on "what everybody says"?No, that's the only thing the judges see. It has to be, when landing jumps during an entire skate with no crisp edges gets you 90 PCS and an European gold.
Maybe the fans would be more open to Russian skaters if their federation was not activelly tainting their sporting careers with an overdose of background politics. Just a thought.
Oh and no Canadian or America has EVER benefitted from scoring.
Mr Three Falls Chan didn't win over and over and over again. Oh but look he has deep edges and isn't Russian, give him a parade.
And let's not forget the time your dull as dishwater pairs team whined their way to a gold medal. Any other non-American/Canadian pair would have been told to suck it up.
But can't call a spade a spade there can you. Oh no, not the Holy Canadians.
It's people like you that ruin this sport.
Have a nice life.
And it's MOZALEV.
At least get the name of the person you're shitting on right.
I was being a bit exaggerating here. I'm saying comparatively speaking if Kondratiuk was a 90, then Vasiljev should have been a 95 and with backing of the Russian fed he would have come close to that. Really, the PCS was generous on all fronts, and I'd have had the PCS something more like:No, he would not. Didn't Deniss just land his first ever clean quad? Just skating beautifully would not be enough to skate for Russia. With his competitive track record he would have been "buried" in obscurity long time ago. Being a decent skater not from Russia has its certain merits.

Nikita doesn´t have German passport yet. But maybe he can go to the world championships.Nikita, aka the boy in the purple top from that one competition who I really liked. I was glad to see him have such a great skate here again. He has great landings and skating quality. It's probably a good thing Paul has already been named to the Olympic team, because there is a very good case that Nikita should skate the team event. (I do feel bad for Paul, he had a rough skate and I hope he can deliver in Beijing)
