  1. Do you like it better than Danse Macabre, Tango or Bond? She had such great short programs in her career, I loved them all but if I had to choose one it would be Danse Macabre. Worlds 2009 is easily one of my favourite performances in the Ladies field ever I sorry I couldn't join you on Sunday...Tomorrow there'll be a ladies free skate broadcast and I try to watch at least Yuna
  2. Yes. I still wonder how they will measure the difference between 89, 90, and 91 degress if they won't have more camera angles. Judging will be a mess.
  3. There are figure skating recaps from the Olympics on our national sports TV channel every day for 2 weeks. They broadcast usually the last two groups from ladies, men or sometimes pairs or ID from Lillehammer '94 to PyeongChang. '18 I don't have much time to watch them because it's usually early in the morning or in the afternoon, and I work at those times, but some of the broadcasts I saw was fun to watch (Nagano, SLC Ladies, Vancouver Ladies and ID), also because they left the original commentary on them. The good thing is that they're planning to broadcast the men's event from PyeongChang at almost prime time, in the evening on 14 July which could give an opportunity to some people who usually don't watch skating to discover Yuzu. I'll definitely watch it too.
  4. The pictures on the account are not recent. This is the newest photo of Lambiel taken around 10 days ago. His hair is still short.
  5. Sir Ringo was born on this day, 7 July 1940 in Liverpool. Happy 80th birthday to him! Here's his first song he sang with The Beatles in 1963 with some pretty amazing footage of Beatlemania too. In the last few days I was listening to the songs Ringo sang and wrote for The Beatles.
  6. Remembering Ennio Morricone, he wrote such pieces of music for films...
  7. Thanks to OIP for posting that video, that smile is what we needed now But yes, I wish Japanese broadcasters released a bit more footage in the middle of drought, they have so many and we all miss him so much
  8. Welcome here @Hope_and_Legacy! Great first post, I always like reading about how people get into Yuzu's skating. It's really nice that you, without knowing much about figure skating, were drawn in by his beautiful jumps. He is that special! I hope you will enjoy being here!
  9. I don't know if we'll have a JGP Season and if yes, in what form...but I have opened a new thread with the informations about competitions and technical details as of now because we always open a thread around this time of the year! ISU will give us more information regarding the JGP after the meeting of Council on 6th July.
  10. Welcome to our thread for discussing Juniors and all the events of the 2020/21 season beginning with: Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating 2020/21 The 24th season of a series of junior international competitions organized by the International Skating Union. Following the cancellation of the first two Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Events that were to have been held in Canada and Slovak Republic, the Council approved the application from Riga / LAT to host a Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Event. The revised ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series will therefore be as follows: Date Event Location Other Notes September 9-12 JGP Hungary Budapest / HUN September 16-19 JGP Japan Yokohama / JPN Cancelled September 23-26 JGP Czech Republic Ostrava / CZE + Pairs September 20-October 3 JGP Uzbekistan Tashkent / UZB + Pairs October 7-10 JGP Slovenia Lljubljana / SLO October 14-17 JGP Latvia Riga / LAT + Pairs Skaters who reach the age of 13 by July 1, 2020 but have not turned 19 (singles and females of the other two disciplines) or 21 (male pair skaters and ice dancers) are eligible to compete in the JGP. The number of entries allotted to each Federation is determined by their skaters' placements at the 2020 World Junior Championships and the Federations themselves choose their representatives. Skaters/Couples entered for an event of the ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating may not participate in the same discipline of an event of the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating (senior) in the same season. Points are awarded based on placement in an event. First place in singles brings 15 points, second 13, third 11 points, fourth 9, fifth 7, sixth 5, seventh 4, eighth 3, ninth 2 and tenth 1. First place in pairs and ice dance brings 15 points, second 13, third 11 points, fourth 9, fifth 7, sixth 5. Top 6 ranking in all disciplines will qualify for the JGPF. TECHNICAL DETAILS According to ISU Communication 2312 the Pattern Dances for Juniors will not be changed for Season 2020/21, and the requirements for the Short Program as specified in the Single and Pair Skating Technical Rules 611 and 620 for season 2020/21 will be valid.

  11. I find it possible if the Awards won't be a success, especially at Worlds where there will be lots of empty seats, they will realise it will be better idea to go back to gala. After all ISU needs money and they can get more of it if there is a gala and not some awards show. Galas attract more people, even some locals who aren't really into the sport. The reactions I read about the Awards are either negative or neutral at best. I don't think many will watch it online and it will definitely not reach a wider audience imo. So if their aim is to make the sport more popular in the west, then I think they won't reach that goal.
  12. Kolesnik is looking for a partner, 'possibly outside the US' . Getting closer to Eteri https://sport24.ru/news/other/2020-06-30-figurist-kolesnik-budu-iskat-novuyu-partnershu-vozmozhno-za-predelami-ssha Maybe Avonley will continue ice dance with someone like Ponomarenko. They are both under Shpilband and Ponomarenko is imo better than Kolesnik.
