The men were all doing (or trying) a triple-double combo, a double axel and a double lutz. This was a great competition. Almost all of the boys were really skating TO their music. There were a lot of really nice fast footwork runs. Some real high quality programs.Very entertaining.

Hmm. Well.. Long programs sure are long. Some are longer than others.

Sort of a cross between Laurent Tobel and Shepherd Clark. (There's a sentence I never imagined writing). Skated to "Oh Yeah" by Yello. some sort of 3-2 combo. 2 axel and 2 lutz. Certainly has a lot of personality.

Skated to Trans-Siberian Orchestra's chrostmas song. 2 axel. 3 toe. weak camel position. 3 toe-2 toe. fell on sal. his flying sit never really did either. 2 lutz-2 toe. 2 axel. back 3s into a loop (fall) 2 lutz (fall) 2 flip?

Camel was slow. Footwork was fast and aggressive. 3 loop-2 toe (turned out of landing). 2 axel. 2 lutz. Crouching Tiger.

Love this kids footwork. 2 axel-2 toe. 3 sal ---toe with a messy ending. fell on flip. and loop. 2 lutz - 2 loop with a messy ending. 3 sal. 2 lutz. 2 toe. Music was Ride with the devil. All of his falls in warm up and his program were ones where he went back up off his heel.
