Personal Best Scores

ISU Personal Best Scores for Samuel McAllister:
http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs_pb_00101056.htm

+5 / -5 Grade Of Execution System


+3 / -3 Grade Of Execution System


The Personal Best and Season Best scores that the ISU uses for a skater only take into consideration certain competitions. For example, they do not take into consideration domestic competitions, such as Sectional, Regional or National Championships.

The table below takes into consideration all the events that the skater has taken part in. These scores are referred to as “Absolute Personal Best” and “Absolute Season’s Best” so as to distinguish them from the scores recorded by the ISU.

Absolute Personal Best Score
Absolute Season’s Best Score

The Absolute designations are based purely on the contents of the Competitive History table in this post. If anybody knows of any scores that are not in the table, please let us know, and we will be only too happy to add them in.

I've been planning this thread for absolute ages, but decided to wait until today to upload it, for reasons that are about to become apparent...

:cheer: HAPPY 21[SUP]st[/SUP] BIRTHDAY SAM!!! :cheer:

:cheer: :clap: :rock: :party2: :points: :hb:

I hope you are having an enjoyable day, and that the coming year is a good one for you, both on and off the ice.

Since Jenna retired, you have been single-handedly keeping Northern Ireland on the international figure skating map. And you have been doing a great job at it. As a fellow Ulsterman, I am so proud of what you have been achieving.

All the best for the rest of the season.

Hi CaroLiza_Fan, do you happen to know whether Samuel McAllister is still skating?

Don't worry, it was just the strict COVID-19 restrictions in these islands which meant he wasn't competing this past season.

A few weeks ago, he posted this photo from the 2020 Irish Championships of him, his Mum and fellow NI skater Dillon Judge (who won the Junior Men's title):

https://www.instagram.com/p/CNIKYXdp1Hb/

He accompanied it with a debrief of his (non-existant) 2020-21 season, and said that he is preparing for next season.

So, all's good! :)

I see he's changed his Instagram address. So, I'll update that in the OP now.

It's been a long time, but we will finally be seeing Sam back in action today. He is kicking off his season at the Budapest Trophy in Hungary.

The Men’s SP kicks off today at 15:05:00 CEST (13:05:00 GMT / 14:05:00 BST). So 8 hours from now.

Sam will be the 5th skater to start. So, fifth and final skater to go in Group 1.

He is due to start at 15:32:10 CEST (13:32:10 GMT / 14:32:10 BST). So 8h 27m from now.

Here is the link for the livestream:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dV191XFFGs

Here is the Time Schedule:

And here is the live scoring:

Hope this helps

Budapest Trophy Men's SP: Results; Protocols

No video uploaded yet 😞

Sam finished 11th out of 11 in the SP, with a score of 51.63.

To be honest, I didn't see much wrong with the programme to justify him being in last position.

Here is what I wrote in the competition thread at the time (just to explain the first sentence - the guy that skated before Sam, Andrii Kokura of the Ukraine, had very strange music):

What were we saying about music?

The music may not be my taste, but I really enjoyed that programme. Really fun. And he skated it well.

That said, he doesn't think so, judging by his reaction when he finished.

Don't worry, at least your Mum is sitting next to you, so you can get a hug.

Hello Margaret!

CaroLiza_fan

Even looking at the protocols doesn't enlighten me any. Those of us watching live saw that Sam had a fall on the Triple Lutz combination, but that is the only thing that stands out in the protocols. There is not a single minus elsewhere. The aforementioned Kokura had loads of minuses in his protocols. Yet he finished 2.83 points and one place ahead of Sam.

Anyway, Sam is 4.79 points behind the guy in 9th position, András Csernoch (HUN). So, he does have a chance of moving up a couple of places if he has a good Free Skate.

So, let's hope that happens.

I know Sam and the results table don't agree with me, but I'm going to say it anyway because I believe he did well.

:cheer: WELL DONE SAM!!! :cheer:



The Senior Men's FS is due to start at 15:10:00 CEST (13:10:00 GMT / 14:10:00 BST). So 8 hours from now.

Sam will be the first skater to start.

He is due to start at 15:16:30 CEST (13:16:30 GMT / 14:16:30 BST). So 8h 6m from now.

Sam finished 11th out of 11 in the FS, with a score of 101.58. This meant that he stayed in 11th place overall, with a score of 153.21.

Here is what I wrote in the competition thread at the time:

Oh dear.

I love "Pirates Of The Caribbean" programmes. So, when the music started, I was all excited. But, unfortunately, this one didn't go well.

The first half wasn't so bad. But, there were too many mistakes in the second half.

Unfortunately, the cut to the highlights very quickly after he took his bows. I wanted to see what the interaction was like between mother and son when he came off the ice.

Well, it was his first competition in nearly 2 years. So, although it didn't go well, it is a starting point to work from over the next few months.

But, get a more piratey costume for the next time! Doing so is bound to add to the interpretation score!

CaroLiza_fan

There's not really much I can add to that.

Looking at the protocols, the Triple Flip seemed to be presenting him with a problem during that programme. His first attempt was his second element, and he singled it out. He fell on his second attempt later in the programme, and this attempt also got called for an unclear edge. On top of that, two jumps got called for being landed on the quarter - the Triple Toe he did in a combo as his third element, and the Triple Flip that he fell on.

The skater who had been nearest to Sam in the SP, Andrii Kokura, had a better FS, and leap-frogged the two skaters that had been ahead of him in the SP. The result was that it was András Csernoch that finished in 10th place, 5.90 points ahead of Sam.

Whilst last place is not what Sam would have been looking for, he can take away positives. Not least that his FS score is the highest he has achieved under the +5 / -5 GOE system. And bearing in mind that the FS here wasn't great, it bodes very well for when he does do it well!

:cheer: WELL DONE SAM!!! :cheer:

Like I said about Dillon after his Junior GP appearances, Sam was always going to be at a disadvantage because it is not that long since the rinks in the UK re-opened after being closed for well over a year. But, it's still early in the season, and there is plenty of time for him to work on polishing up the programmes. And as he gets more time on the ice under his belt, I can see his scores improving significantly as the season goes on.

So, here's to a more successful rest of the season!
