Good luck to Alex in the Nebelhorn Trophy!

On another cool note, he's quoted in the New York Times today (print edition, page a2) in "The story behind the story" about the North Korean Pair team article that was posted in another thread.

He's the closing quote of the article: "In the words of Alexander Johnson, an American skater who watched the North Koreans train on Wednesday night: "They're just people."

It's also online https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/27/insider/north-koreas-athletic-ambassadors.html

I agree. I hope the judges also show him more PCS love. He should at least be in the 8s. His camel is my new favorite thing :love:

That was a fantastic skate yesterday, it really stood out from everyone else. Could have been scored a little higher on PCS. I know it's early days in the season but that is one of my favourite skates so far. Best of luck in the free.

Thrilled that Alex skated so well tonight. I wish the judges would reward him more in the PCS categories, but I'll take this almost clean skate regardless. The footwork, spins, and his attention to detail are first rate! :bow::love:
