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.

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.
