I’m excited for watch the men.

The free skate will be very important for Camden. I feel that if he can place top 3 in just the free skate alone, that he can still be named to the team due to body of work (cough… his last year Worlds performance where I felt he should have won bronze).

Good luck to Maxim and Andrew. I pray one of those can grab bronze or pewter. Maxim for his jumps and Andrew for his PCS.

Good luck to Jason. I hope he skates a bit better than his free skate at Japan Open. Don’t worry about quads. Just focus on clean triples and that amazing 3A.

Also, I’m interested to see what Ilia does. He really deserves more points for that 4A. The 4A should alone be worth way more base points. I mean, he lands a jump that nobody has ever done and it is a beautiful jump.

Let's not forget that if I'm correct that Ilia and Jason have "pre-declined" 4CC, then that means there are at least 5 teams selections to be made... provided Jason and Ilia are named to one of the teams. (I know, I know... we all expect that they WILL be, but ice is slippery and it's wisest to let things play out.)

In any event, there's a lot for these guys to skate for.

This is also the first time he’s been ahead going into the free and he has a 10-point lead. I’m curious to see what he does too.
