It’s going to be a nailbiter tomorrow. I am wishing Andrei Mozalev a strong come back free skate in Kazan and bracing for the wait!
Absolutely! Coming second in the free in this tight competition was really a great achievement. Honestly, it could have went either way between him and Gumennik.Well done, Andrei. A valiant rebound in the free, but alas that SP missed combo was just too costly to overcome! If the same missed combo had happened in the free instead, he would have had maybe 5-10 more points overall.
However he's shown his mettle this season as one of the most consistent Russian men, and did very well in a very close event that was basically a preview of Nationals (just with Kvitelashvili instead of Danielian).
Now's a great time to rest and regroup. A national medal (or title) could be Andrei's soon, he just needs to perform well in both programmes
