I don't know, there is something i like of his skating: i think he could do great steps sequence, jumps are getting higher and spins are a little better than Kovtun, but the style is really awful, those programs needs some refinements.

The free program went better than the short, but there were still many details that I was not able to execute well. The
strategy for the next season will be to participate in more minor international competitions. I need to get more
competitive experience to feel more comfortable on the ice. Here, even if I did not seem to be nervous, I think I was
under pressure unconsciously. To do two quads here felt actually OK, I got much adrenaline after the second quad, got
more confidence. (On next plans) Junior Worlds is a very important event for me, this is actually my main goal for this
season - to finish my junior career at the top and open doors into the senior world
