  2. I thought they'd elect St Peter because of USA's power, lot of experience, first woman president + plus it's been 42 years since the last president who was from figure skating and not from short track or speed skating. Kim is also an ISU Council member like Patricia but he was chosen of the money that comes with his connection to Samsung. There were many scandals in KSU in the past years especially in short track, and Kim himself was involved in some shady businesses. I guess money is above everything.
  3. Thank you for your summaries @Perelandra I think the decision of raising the age limit will do more harm than what they think now but it's not surprise they wanted to accept this proposal so much in the current situation. It won't solve the root of the problems which is the judging itself. They also pushed the PCS change down the throat of the ISU members, which was expected. They manipulated the components in the past and will continue to do so in the future - the difference will be that they don't even need to pretend anymore that transitions, interpretation, or skating skills (at least some former criterias of it) are important. While the new sequence rule is good because of a potential 4T-3A (or other jumps) but in the ladies field, skaters who don't have stable triple-triple will benefit from it. We're slowly back to the 6.0 system again. Tomorrow I think the American candidate, St. Peter will be elected as the new president.
  4. I opened a new thread for it for those who want to follow the Congress the next 5 days. Please come and comment here:
  5. I open a separate thread for the Congress - it will be easier to follow which proposals will be accepted. The 58th ISU Ordinary Congress will take place in Phuket, Thailand on June 6 – 10, 2022. Every Congress sees major decisions about the future and direction of the ISU. In 2022 almost 250 proposals will be discussed and voted by the Congress. Additionally, elections for ISU Office Holders positions will take place. The Congress will be live streamed on YouTube. Full Agenda of the Congress with the proposals: Proposals of the S&PTC for changes in the ISU Constitution Candidates for ISU Officials: https://isu.org/docman-documents-links/isu-files/documents-communications/isu-communications/28257-candidates-isu-office-2022/file SCHEDULE (all times are local time, GMT +7, current time in Thailand here) Monday, June 6 09.00 to 12.30 Congress – agenda items A.1 – A.16 YouTube 12.30 to 14.00 Lunch 14.00 to 15.30 Workshops Technical Rule amendments Figure Skating Branch (as per Art. 33, para 9.d) YouTube 16.00 to 17.00 Congress – agenda items A.17-A.18 YouTube 17.15 to 18.00 Election voting procedure rehearsal Tuesday, June 7 09.00 to 12.30 Congress – agenda items A.17-A.18 YouTube 12.30 to 14.00 Lunch 14.00 to 17.00 Congress – agenda items A.17-A.18 YouTube Wednesday, June 8 09.00 to 12.30 Congress – agenda items A.17-A.18 (if not completed on Tuesday) YouTube Alternatively to be held simultaneously: Figure Skating Branch Session – agenda items C.1-C.11 YouTube combined stream with Congress stream above 12.30 to 14.00 Lunch 14.30 to 18.30 Excursion 20.00 to 23.00 Dinner hosted by the Figure and Speed Skating Association of Thailand Thursday, June 9 09.00 to 12.30 Figure Skating Branch Session – agenda items C.1-C.11 YouTube 12.30 to 14.00 Lunch 14.00 to 17.00 Figure Skating Branch Session – agenda items C.1-C.11 YouTube Friday, June 10 09.00 to 11.00 Congress – agenda items D.19-D.31 YouTube 11.30 to 12.15 Figure Skating Branch Session – agenda items C.12-C.18 - no link yet? 12.15 to 13.00 Congress – agenda items D.32-D.37 - no link yet? 13.00 to 14.00 Opening Doors - Coctails 20.00 to 24.00 Closing Banquet hosted by the ISU

  7. I was so happy to see Yuzu after three months again. I hope he had a good rest after the Olympics and that his ankle is doing already better. He looked well in Makuhari, and the 4T+3As he did looked very good. His commitment to his performances are always wonderful to see - not only in his new program but also during the opening and finale it was obvious he a lot more into the performance than the others. Thanks to everyone here who shared pictures and videos of him.
  8. Haru yo koi was gorgeous as always Thank you Yuzu. It was nice to see him enjoying the gala practices and having fun in the gala, the finale. The rotational lift was great and in general it was just good to see how nice team China was to him! I hope these moments will help him healing emotionally Hopefully he will have a good rest now, may his ankle get better as soon as possible. Despite of the difficulties I feel grateful the he have us a beautiful Rondo and Ten to chi to, went for the 4A which was so close to fully rotated, then we could enjoy all the gala practice snippets in the past days, and now today beautiful Haru yo koi. I don't know when we'll see him next time but I'll look forward to seeing him.
  9. Congrats to Sui/Han on getting the Olympic gold, so well deserved! It was worth going for the quad twist and the more difficult death spiral, because these elements made the difference today, even PCS couldn't have saved them. This was a very nice and technically strong performance from them today, worthy for the Olympic gold! It was touching to see Wenjing's reaction when they ended the performance (I still need to catch up with the medal ceremony, more crying will follow I think!) T/M also skated very well at this competition, I can't even remember when was the last time they skated back-to-back great programs without much errors. Most of their elements are really great quality-wise, though the 3S wasn't very nice today (they didn't get much GOE on it). And in general I think they have less charisma and chemistry together compared to someone like S/H but they still got the highest PCS anyway. M/G looked more tentative and slow today, and her 3S definitely looked as a step-out. They are generously scored as always so I can only hope they will have some competition if we won't see S/H (and maybe T/M?) from next season. Boikova/Kozlovskii weren't clean today...I still like them better than M/G, I think they have more personality on the ice. I hope to see them stronger next season. I liked P/J's FS choice...happy for them on finishing Top 5, I hope to see them improving more next quad. And finally I'm so happy for Riku and Ryuichi, what a great free skate it was, new SB!!! This is such a great year for them. It was a well skated final event after a stressful, upsetting and sad Olympics.
  10. I won't be able to follow the pairs free skate because my dear cousine has birthday and since she is always abroad it is the only year we can celebrate her birthday together. I will try to watch the last 4 pairs on my phone and cheer for Sui/Han as much as I can. Good luck Sui/Han
  11. T/M have definitely lot of very high quality elements, though I don't think they are comparable with Sui/Han in presentation and interpretation in any way in which S/H are superior. Today Tarasova's 3T was a bit off at the landing, too and T and M were just far apart when they did the element. At this level the differences are really not much but small things like these one should count as well. The difference in points in basically nothing, even though T/M are not on home field.
