    That was unexpected but CONGRATS! So happy for Nam!

    Hey, remember us?

    I had been reading lately about him re:the SafeSport investigation, sad that this happened. Condolences to his family and everyone who loved him, everyone who cherished his skating and his life. I hope investigation will go on regardless though, all parts deserve it.

    That was so sweet maybe some screenplayers should take note that romance isn't the only thing pairs are built on So sorry to hear Plushenko is unwell. Sadly not unexpected with his history of back surgeries and the gazzillion ice shows he performs in Wishing speedy recovery

    so envious I hope they'll all receive a warm welcome and have good skates and that we'll have good footage

    Team we're fewer but still good!

    just to clarify, the part about maybe hoping to grab judges' attention (and get more generous pcs) was my own speculation from the phrasing in the article, where they only said "smartly riding the wave" of the success of the film. I think usually it's what skaters hope, to skate to music that judges are familiar with so judges can get into the program more easily (and unconsciously award more generous scores). This season it's clearly happening with the deluge of The greatest showman programs but both Rolling Stones and Queen are widely popular on their own, so IMO that a movie has recently been very successful won't change that much judges' or people's propensity to enjoy a Queen medley... though Queen albums are selling really well again so who knows, maybe there could still be some revival effect asfaik Matteo hasn't explained the reason for the abrupt change... I can only think he wasn't feeling connected with his previous program, but I am worried it's a bit late for a change and I don't think the Nats performance was so tragic that something this drastic was necessary (contrary e.g. with what happended with Zhenya's SP this season) Aljona&Bruno also changed SP mid-Olympic season because Bruno didn't felt comfortable but they merely went back to their trusted program from the season before. I hope it will work out well for Matteo agreed about medleys, they often feel disjointed, with little internal choerence and purpose. Though...now I think about it Michal's FS both last season and this one splice together several songs all the same but I have no issue...weird also, I've just realized I've watched only a few of Michal's programs and I need to do some serious catch up also, I didn't know his SP last season was not a second but a third peat (if his wiki is right)

    Signed I hope it can help ...............................why? I'm not sure I understand the move...to aim for top 5, against 3 russian guys + Javi and Morisi and Kevin Aymoz etc he needs to be clean and probably also land his quad, and I don't see how debuting a completely new program can help with any of that of course the quad guys can bomb (as we've seen in the gp) but usually one doesn't bet on that.... that said, I wasn't particularly fond of his fs, maybe I'll like this new program more... /quote (can't find the quote function on mobile)/ cavalcando intelligentemente l’onda mediatica dettata dal successo del film sulla vita di Freddy Mercury campione d’incassi nelle sale cinematografiche di tutto il mondo. /end quote/ I don't see why it would be smart to change the FS between Nats in december and Euros in january just because there is a successful movie...yes it can maybe help with judges for pcs (tho it's not like the previous medley was of some unknown songs, so it's imo debatable that judges could be more impressed, and for the same reason I don't expect a hugely different response from audience, as both free skates use widely popular songs anyway)... but I don't think a boost in pcs can be comparabile with quads....unless suddenly he gets 90 but I don't see how, given how things work for pcs... Idk, was the fs giving him particular issues? I don't think so, he was skating quite well, he has even landed the quad at Nats... Also... Matteo really loves medley, doesn't he? Is he planning to cover all famous bands, a medley at a time? ETA: I am still doubtful Daniel can go above a clean Matteo at Euros, yes he has bv but he's considered and scored as a junior skater from a "minor" fed and jgp international panels were quite stingy with him... I think even at Nats a completely clean Matteo would have been placed above. So I really don't understand his move. But, well, Matteo is the one who has to skate the program, not me, so whatever works for him ETA2: ok checking ISU PB Daniel has 3 points more than Matteo but Matteo had 1 fall and two pops (though it was LT whops) and Daniel was almost clean (one UR) when he got his pb... the weirdest thing was seeing Boyang's score is lower than theirs whoa poor Boyang

    Mmmh I wasn't expecting Shoma to have another comp between 4CC and worlds but iat least it looks like he'll be fully recovered. in the past doing a lot of comp did good to him so at least a busy schedule is no reason to worry Tbh I'm more worried about Rika whops flying across continents no stop and competing and her media obligations are on the rise too I'm not worried about her yrsining time and maybe she is one of those skaters who don't like to lose the competition feeling...still worried tho Yay for Sota and wakababy! But she needs to be completely recovered I hope Sara Honda will be assigned somewhere too
  8. @Louitunes thank you for your comments! I'm happy for Bruce and I hope he and Natalie will do well in ID too, I've enjoyed them in jgp I guess Bruce will stop competing in singles one day... but in the meanwhile amazing how some skaters manage to compete in more than one discipline (OT I wish JSF could promote this kind of parallel training for young skaters but I guess there are the issues of specialized ID coaches and more ice time for skaters)

    I'm really sad for Loena.... especially because of the reason, it sounds like some serious problem I hope she'll be healthy enough to resume training and go to Worlds Euro ladies fight for podium doesn't look too thrilling at the moment, I think I'll root for Sofia + Alexia to have stong skates... weird that Men's field looks deeper at the moment, with multiple medal contenders, with (i think) similar BV and GOE and PCS potential (of course if Javi can land his stuff I expect him to have a comfortable lead but I don't want to take anything for granted and the rest of the podium is wiiiiiiide open)... I'm mainly rootin for Javi to be able to say goodbye to competitions in the best way (tho ngl I'd celebrate a Misha European Champion too) and that Michal, Misha and Kevin will do well. Tho I feel Kovtun might be the biggest surprise (or maybe not so big, given two consecutive strong results). I still can't bring myself to root for him (sadly his SP is exactly the type of program that makes me majorly zone out the FS is a bit better for me, despite the Carmen conspiracy from russian skaters this season) I think the Pairs field is gonna be interesting with T/M vs J/C (I'm really sad that Z/E had to WD tho, I've developed a huge soft spot for their weird dramatic programs and I'll miss them a lot) and ID will be P/C vs Russian teams... crossing fingers for S/B to get the levels and a nice medal...I suppose the fight will be for silver and bronze but don't want to jinx P/C as I've jinxed them in the GPFinal predictions what has this season done to me? I guess 4CC will more lit for ladies and maybe a bit less for men (I guess it's gonna be like last season Boyang vs Shoma and apparently Shoma's pattern in previous 4CCs would see him finlly getting gold, thus breaking his major-comps-silver curse tho two times 4cc champion Boyang Jin has a nice sound too WAIT maybe Keegan will go too...? WAIT JUNHWAN COULD GO THERE too? gotta check the korean skaters thread kinda forgot there are other Nats after JpnNats and RusNats ended oh whoa US Nats and Canadian nats still have to happen too... ok then I take back what I've said about men being less lit. And of course Kazuki will skate there so while I'll not hold my breath for a medal I'll root extra hard for him Looking forward to all Chinese pairs and I expect also Ryom/Kim who hopefully won't be robbed... and hopefully many strong contenders in ID too... I guess the strongest teams will be from USA but maybe G/P will go there too...I'd LOVE any competition with both C/B and G/P Ok it definitely looks like 4CC will be the competition I'll look forward the most this time well of course Worlds is the competition I really truly look forward to the most, but tbh every competition where Yuzuru is able to show up is the comp I look forward the most regardless of the rest of the fields edited for wistful thinking I has forgotten Sota was only a substitute for 4CC

    Yaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy but also PLZ BE HEALTHY YUZU SKATING GODS PLZ LET HIM BE HEALTHY so he can accomplish all he wants I'm so grateful he has the will to go on but I'd hate if it meant another serious injury and more difficult months of rehab 😖 I just want a happy Yuzu enjoying training and having fun in practices and competitions like we've seen this season up to that bad fall In other news, I'm trying really hard not to get my hopes too up for TurinGPF (because we've seen over and over again anything can happen) while preparing myself for ticket battle I won't lose (As for the leaked video, I'm half sad I haven't watched it and half relieved it was taken down. I'm gonna trust your word that Zuzu looked good. Crossing fingers that he can also recover his jumps smoothly and without feeling pain I hope Yuzuru can will his health into existence in the same way he willed his OGM into existance, after all he wouldn't be able to keep competing another season and landing a Nessie if he isn't healthy...)

    Do you know what I love the most about the 2nd pic aside that big, big smile and THAT ARM and the general gorgeousness of our sakura fairy? all those people beaming fondly in the background ETA: iirc it was in a jpn program (with explanatory animation added LOL other satellites with better memory and archiving skills will be more helpful than me about this) Yuzuru said he does image training (at night?) and one time he knocked a lamp.... his mom scolds him because of the noises ETA2: hey I hadn't noticed you've joined the Planet recently, welcome welcome also awesome name for a satellite

    A lot will depend on who will be on WC podium too(and 4-6). Of course one can make an educated guess but I don't want to jinx anyone, especially with all the injuries around Besides, I think that if fed has to choose between Yuzu and Shoma at nhk, it's still quite likely Shoma could go, as traditionally the national champion gets it, tho there were exceptions like NHK13 and NHK17...tho I'm not sure if in 2013 it was Yuzu's request, too, to be sent head to head against Patrick, or fed just decided to have Dai (the biggest star back then) to draw audience...iirc Yuzu said he wanted to compete with Patrick, but maybe both reasons played a role and in the end all sides were happy with the assignments... As a selfish fanyu, and sorry jpn fans, if Zuzu will be competing in next season gp I'll root for SC+COR because good ice (cough IDF cough) and FANCAMSSSSSS!🤤🤤🤤 FANCAMS OF PRACTICES! FANCAMS OF COMPETITIONS! 🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤 FANCAMSSSSSSSS!!!!!!! Sob the only remaining comps Yuzu can attend this season don't allow fancams well I hope everything goes well and at least jpn media give us all the Yuzu fluff we deserve even better if with a beaming Zu
