One of the best skates ever by anyone in skating

Do you have an article? I know he's been out, but I never saw anything publicly.

This. Hopefully things won't end up like last season, I was devasteted
Speaking of devasteted people, I was so so sad for Dmitri Soloviev After that FD I wanted to run to Sochi and hug him

Oh and I really can't with the overscoring of V/T in spite of their mediocre performances! That score even more ridicuolous than the 0.04 difference between Chan and Fernandez

V/T always go for highest difficulty.. the rest of the field have too easy programs. they fell like 3 times in Paris and still easily won

I know, but if they don't skate cleany they shouldn't get 8.64 or even higher in Performance/Execution.

Re: ~ The Figure Skating Season 2012-2013~

I love Patrick Chan's long program this season. It's so glorious and filled with artistry. And I live for his triple flip+half loop+triple salchow combination.

Wowzers!! Anyone who dare says Yu Na is Like P.Chan and over scored know nothing about skating. While P.chan is flip-flopping and landed on his (cute) ass, Yu Na executes with sublime perfection every time she skates. She's the only skater to make me feel her the way that Kwan used to.

In that video my only criticism would be her speed, she was way too slow, but other than that- SPOT ON! So nice to have the Queen back to take her rightful place; let us adorn her in Gold (medals)!

Lepisto had a good 3-3, but Poykio "Euro Kwan" was nice to watch.

Poor Kiira Last year she had to skip Words, now Euros. Hope she'll be injuries-free for the whole next season

BTW, now hopefully LizaT and EleneG will join Carolina on the podium

Carolina Kostner's free program at Italian Nationals: Bolero. Check out the step sequence, and the choreographic sequence, they are certainly the best in this season. That final triple salchow is She lands it just before the music ends! Magnificent.

She also has the triple lutz back
