Andrew:hap57:

Finally, the skate we all knew he was capable of, on a stage where he could show it to best advantage, Third after the SP! 97!

Just thrilled :hap10:

Sadly I have not found a link.

Somewhere, someone should have this magnificent skate of Andrews:pray:

Well, Andrew had a few falls in the free, but he came through it: instead of being discouraged, he fought for the program and finished in fifth place. Among the stellar US men, quite an accomplishment! As always, his skating skills and performance quality still shone.

:clap:

Selected as an alternate for Worlds, but nothing for 4CC:scratch2:; I imagine (I hope:pray:) that the next step is Junior Worlds!

And Andrew posted some great photos from the comp on his IG:

This Is Me#thankful

To possibly no one's great surprise, Andrew has been selected for the US Junior World's team.

Go Andrew!:hap10:

Thank you @Tavi for the link!

Very interesting to hear Andrew’s approach to skating: “creativity”, “originality”, “pushing my boundaries”, and other than when directly asked by Jackie about that pesky 3A, hardly a word about jumps qua jumps.

Let’s hope for more boundary pushing at Tallin:clap:

Andrew is in third after the Junior Worlds SP!:yahoo:

So glad he showed what he could do with that engrossing SP on the World stage. Including the transition semi Wagon Wheel jump that I have now labeled “the flying Torg”.

Showing that there is a place for creativity, originality and pushing limits :cheer:
