Happy birthday Roman!!! 17 today.
Any word on his music, or confirmation of his choreographer? He and Shae-Lynn could do some amazing things together too.
His coach in the background. How old do you think he is there? 7 or 8 I'm guessing?
Roman's new SP music is Exogenesis Symphony Part III by Muse. I LOVE this piece of music, so I'm very happy he's using it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OZTJkIMB0g He did a terrific 3 axel :yes2:, but then popped the 3 lutz - 3 toe combo.
For his FP, he's keeping his R&J program from last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFAKrL3YPmw. He fell on the 3 axel, and both the quad sal & quad sal combo, but did a gorgeous 3 lutz - 3 toe combo. Figures! To me it looked like he was having to think through it, which seemed weird since he had the program last year, then I realized he's probably training a shorter version for the JGP.
I think his back camel catch-leg in the short program looks fine as usual but I agree male skaters at this age tend to lose their back flexibility for the sake of a stronger snap for the quads. The second quad though:shocked: not sure if it's planned or just a spontaneous move. I read somewhere else that Roman looked a bit intimidated during the warm-up since there were only him and Nicolas on the ice in group 2 and Nic was doing all the big jumps So maybe the problems in FS were more about mentality. P.S. I much prefer the blue costume for R+J last year
Yesss hahah that purple MONSTROSITY is not acceptable. His camel spin last year was so perfect too. But there is some improvement obviously, like he's attempting all the hard jumps this year and he has popped alot less though he's still a #popstar. I think the first fall on the Salchow completely destroyed his mentality, which was followed by two other painful falls but this is still early in the season so he's probably not as prepared yet. Props to him for trying two quads in the free and the triple axel. Last year, he didn't even put a triple axel in the free.
Omg I'm so excited for him. Massive improvements already. Great triple Axel combo. And all level 4 spins and stsq for his sp. So did he win? Is this the first senior comp he's won?Roman scored a total of 218.74 at the COS Thornhill Summer Skate (SP:71.70 FS:147.04)
Protocol for the SP and FS
Popped the 3A but all other elements were nicely done.
I believe this is his first rotated 4S in competition? followed by a gorgeous 3A+2T. Popped the second 3A had some issues with the 3Lz+3T combo.Seems like there has been a bit of change in the layout since Skate Detroit. No second quad this time. His 3A seems effortless with great height when he actually lands it. The popping though But overall it's much better than Skate Detroit! Hopefully it will keep improving throughout the season.
