    Just watched Yuzuru's short program and free skate. Tara and Johnny's commentary just faded away as they let the free skate speak for itself. Simply stunning work by the 20 year old.

    It's an amazing skate - I've watched both programs numerous times already - his jump landings are stunning and the character he portrays. The moment where he's doing simple forward crossovers and staring down the judges in the free skate is just amazing.

    But wth was wrong with the women? They were all horrible. The woman who won was good but in years past she wouldn't have made the podium.

    Mirai Nagasu brought no energy and no beauty. I don't think she ever recovered from that slight a few years back.
    Mao Asada? Blech.
    I really don't care for Ashley Wagner and despite everyone saying she's usually so good she skated just below the level she's usually at.

    The other American woman, Christine something or another? What is going on there.

    Yeah, the women's event this fall has not been good - Gracie Gold and couple of the Russians have some good skates but nothing earth shattering.

    If you missed it find the replay on Ice Network or YouTube of Javier Fernandez free skate tonight. Not a mistake was made. Perfect coordination between music, skater and routine.

    Re: Ice Skating

    So he went into the long program -12 points and ended up defending his world championship by a nearly 20 point margin? That's just... wow. You can't do that. LOL! Three clean quads, too...

    Here's the link, BTW.

    I don't think it's ever been done before dry. I don't think Hanyu would've been able to beat Javier even at his best.
