    Skating on the Planet

    I have now done several successful forward outside 3 turns in both directions. I have done 0 successful moving two foot turns in any direction. Maybe I'll just do my 'two-foot turn' next coaching session with one foot slightly lifted off the ice and hope my coach doesn't notice also I wish my clockwise crossovers (forward and backward) would stop being garbage My ccw ones are fine

    Yeah, the Men's FS (and gala) is at least at a decent time. All the others though Why is it that the competitions that are in the closest time zones to me are actually harder to watch live?

    Interesting. Well if it takes USFed politicking to get some decent tech equipment and fair tech calls, I'm all for it. But in ladies, Alysa Liu is known for having a PR problem, isn't she? I guess she's very young so she could fix it.

    got frustrated with failing two foot turns so I tried 3-turns instead. Success! I mean, I only succeeded 3 times out of however many I tried, but it was better than 0 times on two foot turns. also for some reason I'm way better gliding backwards out of crossovers/3 turns than I am with just picking up my foot while on two feet backwards by way better I mean I can actually do it

    Yikes that article. I agree that there should be better cameras, but the implication that Vincent's URs were called incorrectly is *rolls eyes* I don't think Vincent would fare better under more camera angles and higher speeds.

    Sure, he definitely has a lower success rate on it/it puts more strain on his body, so strategically if Nathan/Shoma mess up their shorts he might decide not to put it in. But I would be very, very surprised if he wasn't at least planning on jumping it in his FS.

    A weird number of people seem convinced that Yuzu won’t add back his 4Lo and I’m scratching my head as to why. Yeah, sure, he got injured on it, but skaters don’t just stop jumping something because they got injured doing it. The circumstances around 4Lz were very different.

    I need more of this. What’s the height and distance on his 4T? 3A? What about Boyang’s 4Lz? Nate’s jumps? (I know they’ve used the ice scope thing on Shoma’s 3A, have they used it on his other jumps?) Why isn’t there a big set of data on all of the jumps this season ahhh

    I agree that Vincent's artistry is actually pretty good, but I also think that World's podium this season is pretty unrealistic. Not only would one of Yuzu/Shoma/Nathan have to bomb really hard (imo, unlikely unless one of them is injured, though that's unfortunately more likely than I want it to be), but he'd also need 1. a lenient tech panel 2. Boyang and the Russian men to skate badly. Boyang usually peaks at the right time and is looking like he'll be strong headed into World's, and will score over him as long as there's a halfway decent tech panel. Russian men bombing is sadly a very real possibility, but Misha will go over Vincent if he manages to be cleanish, and Samarin might as well. Not sure who else Russia is sending, I guess Kovtun? Not sure Kovtun will get the same love internationally as he does domestically, but he could also be a threat. Keegan is also a threat and tbh should have gone over him here. If the tech panel is lenient, Jun would also be a problem for Vincent. So basically, pretty much everything has to go right for Vincent to podium. It's not impossible, but very unlikely.

    Well you can say one thing about this competition: it certainly wasn't boring. Lots of popcorn and good skates from the men, finally!

    Boyang's SP choreo is my favorite choreo this season besides Yuzu's Not sold on the FS yet, but it was better here than I've ever seen it.

    He underrotated his jumps--it's hard to catch if you don't specifically look for it. He's had this issue this whole season, but sometimes the tech panel sees it and sometimes it doesn't. I think since Jun is so young and relatively tall, it might be harder for him to get all the way around. (Younger guys have less muscle and are less used to their adult body.)

    Shoma has great carriage and flow across the ice and does a good job interpreting the music. His footwork isn't as complex as Yuzu's, so Yuzu should get higher PCS overall, but here he is being compared to Boyang who has some of the same issues with simpler footwork. I don't actually particularly like Shoma because the GOEs he gets on his jumps annoy me to the point where it's hard to root for him, but having seen him skate in person he absolutely deserves the reputation for skating beautifully.

    Yeah, I agree. I think you can justify Nathan winning because he does have much better jump technique, but the score difference was, imo, kind of shocking. They made a similar amount of mistakes, so imo they should have been neck and neck--Shoma off superior artistry, Nathan of superior jump technique.

    what if the curse is that Yuzu is cursed with silver at 4CC and Shoma is cursed with silver everywhere else :o
