Thoroughly enjoyed his skate. He is so comfortable on the ice, and the difficulty of his lutz entry!

How is this thread only 4 pages long????

I was asking myself the same thing :eekn: I did predict his silver behind Shoma, but now he has a pretty credible chance for the gold!!!! :hap93: I really hope that will shoots him up to the legit stardom that he deserves!!

OMG Keegan leads after SP! :hap57: Where's Toni? I hope she showed up and dropped a post in the Comp threads.

Split jump into 3Lz :rock:, my jaws dropped watching that crazy entry.
Can he win this all?! When was the last time a Canadian boy except Patrick did win this event? Good luck again to him in the Free. :party::party:

Definitely it's a bummer he let the gold just slip out of his grip :hslap: Perhaps the thought of a gold in such a high profile competition among thundering audience played a nasty trick on him. But no matter, he is always such a joy to watch!!! I am still happy for his silver as I had predicted, I am sure he will bring down the house at the Gala tomorrow!!! :peace:

On a side note it made me chuckle seeing him suggesting Shoma that he should have hopped onto the podium with both feet a la Yuzu, after Shoma struggle to clamber onto the podium (this is getting hilariously customary :laugh2: )

In case anyone was interested, here's my 1080p fancam of his SCI LP Thursday afternoon practice (sorry for the wait, but the competition and the crazy-long commute left me exhausted each night)---I sat in the second row from the boards: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6wbmji

I got to meet Keegan on that very same day, and he kindly posed for a photo with me! :biggrin:

Kudos on winning his first GP medal! :clap: The crowd gave him a standing ovation for both of his programs. :) Most singles skaters end their competitive career by the time they're 26, but he keeps getting better and better!

It's so nice to hear from you, Toni! I wish all is well with you. :)

Many many congrats to Keegan and his rock-n-roll coach for a podium finish at Skate Canada! :yahoo:
Let's wish he will place 2nd at least in his second showing then advance to the Final, shall we. :hap10:

Things are going well, thank you! :)

Yes, I am hoping this is an upswing that continues for Keegan for quite a while.

I said it in the Men's Free Skate thread, but I'll say it here too: Chaplin needs to retire. Not because it's not a great program - it is! - but it was originally designed to be the longer free program. Now it feels like the details are being forced/crammed into it and he seems to be rushed the whole time to make sure the components stay in. He doesn't seem as settled in it as last season. He already zips around at breakneck speed which can get him into trouble, he doesn't also need to feel like he's a half minute behind the entire program.

Saw a clip of Keegan and Yuzu hugging backstage, which made me mist up... so quick, but you could see how they both felt for what the other had gone through in this comp.
