Thoughts on Men's SP at Russian Nats?


Record Breaker
Jun 21, 2003

In his senior national debut, Kondratiuk, hit a triple Axel, quad Salchow, and triple Lutz-triple toe in his routine to “Summertime” and picked up a level four for the three spins and a level three for the step sequence. The 17-year-old from Moscow netted 90.88 points.

“Coming here, I did not think about placements,” said the skater who trains with Svetlana Sokolovskaia at CSKA Moscow. “I just wanted to skate my best. To be in third now is a surprise to me.”
Nice surprise from Kondratiuk!

Mark Kondratiuk was so energetic, my favourite program today.

Makar Ignatov's jump content was incredible. I wish he could have had PCS that pushed him over 100 but I understand it not being so.

And the leader Kolyada was perfect (aside from 4T-3T...that judge that gave it +4 :unsure:). His 101.72 at the Stage competition was better than this on confidence and performance, but clean SP at RusNats has to be celebrated.
