hmm maybe Nam is having issues ?
this could be a great move by Roman and he could become Canada's future leading male singles skater
You can see Roman training at the TCC in the background of this interview with Gabby Daleman around the 1:20 mark:
Roman is going to compete at Skate Detroit again this July. His coaches are listed as Brian Orser and Lee Barkell. Can't wait to see how he does!
Thanks to everyone who has posted videos. Very cute exhibition number! And that's definitely him in the video with Gabby. Looks like he's working on a quad toe. :yay: There's a little more of him earlier in the clip too.
I hope Roman can have a good season this year! I'm assuming he'll return to JGP? He doesn't even turn 17 for another week so while he has been at the senior level nationally for a while, I would think JGP would be the best option for him. If he went senior he could maybe get 1 GP but it wouldn't be a sure thing. He could also do senior Bs and the JGP like Aliev, Vasiljevs, and Samohin did last season. I hope he stops growing soon, I saw this picture of him with Nathan Chen at the JGPF :shocked: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/87/1f/e6/871fe6f0bb4a987ea0c20d06a0613b5d.jpg and there is no way he's 5'8" anymore (Chen is 5'5" and his hair is giving him a boost). Hope Orser and Barkell can help with his jump consistency! He's really nice to watch, his skating style reminds me of Jeremy Abbott and Joshua Farris, very smooth and lyrical. Any news on programs for the new season?
Likely is the SP. To date he's kept his programs for 2 years, so it's time for a new SP. I'm glad to hear it's to a contemporary piece, hopefully one that's more upbeat. Since it was done by a CC choreographer, maybe he had a chance to work with his hero Jeff Buttle? That would be such a big thrill for him!
