I'm still working on the OP but thought it's better to give him a thread before the nationals.

He's got very good SS and entertaining personality. He just needs to nail those jumps! Good luck at the nats Moris :hap10:

I wonder why Eteri's girls seem so confident & the boys tend to be inconsistent headcases...:drama:

^ That is so true...

And how come I can't find his FS video... I thought he did two 4S yesterday but people seem to think they were 4T. I need to check!

I hope we'll have some more chances to see his amazing SP this season :(

This is a tv report about Moris and the other Georgian skaters. I don't understand a word, but if you skip ahead a few minutes, there are clips of their performances.

Maybe we need a "Team Georgia" thread since they have some quite interesting skaters now. (not pictured - Diana Davis)

He posted this clip of a new program a couple weeks ago as well. Anyone know the music?

Congratulations Moris, who deserved a much higher score, but hopefully even greater success is on the way :) I look forward to seeing him at Worlds!

Congrats to Moris!!! Love the SP, the free, not so much but he landed the jumps so I'm happy :rock:

Some quick quotes from FSU poster (Andrey aka Pushkin)

Moris Kvitelashvili (GEO), 2016 Santa Claus Cup Champion

It was a very good event, there were some mistakes though - on the jumps, especially on the landings. I would like to
show more consistent skating at competitions, in both short and free program. Now I have the opportunity to
compete more, and do not feel pressure to be selected. It was hard emotionally to handle the internal competition in
the Russian team.

Sweet Dream

Moris, such a pleasant surprise under no pressure and a great debut at the Euros! I enjoy watching his FS very much! :love: BTW, is he eligible to skate at the Worlds?
