Had to leave this event after one flight because they have scheduled Junior Ladies Free Skate opposite it in the other arena. VERY VERY BITTER.

Looks a little like my old rink son, Jamie White. His spins were weak and his footwork a little slow. He fell on 3 flip, but did lutz-toe combo.

Very entertaining skater. Good use of music and nice eye contact. Nice closing spin with scratch spin ending. I miss those!

Disastrous program for this fine skater. Great stroking and skating, but only the 2 axel really got done.

Singled the second jump of the combo. Little slower that Grisha and Alexander Z., but very strong and great jumps and spins and footwork.
