  1. It's actually what he wants, as far as I can tell. He wants a high average of skates, in all pre-Olympic events to gain a consistency rep just in time for the Games. Now whether he can pull that off we're going to have to wait and see, but I am pretty sure he aims for a high level of skating throughout the season. The consistency talk is one that has followed him, rightly or wrongly, especially since last season, and that NBC piece also mentioned it, so from that angle too it'd be good for him. There's nothing else for them to go after, he has no real weaknesses so if he can plug this so-called one, then he's in the best position pre JNats and the OG.

    *clears throat* It is not just that the total score is non-existent. It is that knowing that it does not exist, the mind-set and the approach are simply different. You have two unconnected segments and you know they're not connected, unlike the regular comps where you know they add up and the first influences the second. It is bound to influence them. So, yes, it could have hypothetically have happened but technically it did not.

    Seriously Honestly the only good thing about that is that the skaters get a really nice sum which is of course a lovely bonus but that's about it.

    Technically, they did not. I will fight this point until my dying day
  5. Not that I know of but then, it's always a work in progress, they do want to raise his consistency as much as possible so I think he simply trained the Lz, which helped stabilize the Lo even further. He was probably just dodgy overall today.
  6. They are not streaming the practices, we'll have to rely on reports first, and hopefully fancams later!
  7. It's all good, nothing happened. Keep in mind he arrived yesterday afternoon, had a long, tiring journey, probably has some jet lag and had to try and practice a bit today. He looked tired too. It's all good, tomorrow should be better already
  8. I've edited in the direct links for the livestreams for the Russian stream in all the OPs, just click on the red one if that's your poison of choice The standard VPN required applies. Also if anyone cares - link to Opening Ceremony! ETA: The CBC works as well, skating in their schedule!
  9. Well yay, at lest it wasn't a total bust I am sure his Lz is fine, it wouldn't be here if it weren't. We just have to wait a bit.
  10. Well it's the media, got to milk that! Here have a few iffy ones ... then dun dun dun .... Ahh, I understood the last one was fine, my bad! Oh well. Tomorrow!

    Guys we do have a thread for all the practice talk And relax, it'll be just fine!
  12. I was wondering what got you going It's fine, he looks pooped to me and no wonder, that huge trip. The height looks lovely. I do wish they showed up the successful attempt though but soon, soon.
  13. Yuzuru is in 1st practice group, will skate 2nd.

    In re to the flag bearing - goodness, I hope not. It's not just the responsibility, it is the hours and effort it takes. It is actually incredibly taxing and exhausting and unlike other athletes who can choose whether to attend the opening ceremony or not, keeping in mind their own needs, you're kind of stuck. So I hope not. Yes, it's an honor but it has so many cons to it.
