Anyone else still surprised that Skate Canada is still planning on holding this event in Saskatchewan with their current COVID-19 situation?

I think at this point that if we want to have figure skating in the future, we need to learn to hold these competitions in a safe manner because COVID is here to stay in one form or another. We can't keep canceling everything and expect figure skating to survive.

I hope skate Canada sees the potential in Kara Yun (novice women), what a great skate.

Bless you, siberia82! I was getting so frustrated trying to watch. :thank:

You're very welcome :) , although I wish I was able to dig up that link earlier because we essentially missed the first group and most of the second. Oh well, hopefully it will be archived and we can catch up later.

Aleksa did a 3-turn on the 3A, while the 3Lz + 3T and 3F were clean.

He's currently in the lead with 72.03 points.

Nam scored only 63.92 and is currently in 7th place, and he's even behind Matthew Markell. :jaw:

Joseph fell on the 3A, while the 3Lz+3T and 3Lo were clean. He appears to have "dumbed down" the technical content on his SP.

Corey stumbled out of 3Lz and fell on the 3F (so no combo), although his 3A was clean. Prince's "Purple Rain" suits his skating style.
