Live coverage is awesome!! I always get butterflies in my stomach when watching it, though...
Well..., it really is a shame that Adrian missed the combination jump... It's a disaster, he did not get credit for the 3T. *sigh* He did a 1T between the 3Lz and the second 3T, didn't he? But I'm glad that he skated the rest of the program so well despite the mistake.
I find Adrian's SP fantastic. It's a very soft, lyrical and classical routine, which is amazingly well-choreographed to the beautiful pieces. I love how he skates to the artistically sophisticated music here. He looks connected to the music, connected to the choreography and connected within him. Yes, I adore his lyrical and elegant style, and find it really great that he has shown another side of him.
Also, he seems to have improved his skating skills and speed, and in my opinion his posture and musicality are getting much better as well. Well done!
Oh and I must say one of my favorite things about his SP is the way he finishes the program. So creative and classy! Love that moment of quietness...<3 <3
So, he will be skating his LP last in the Group 2. Keeping my fingers crossed! C'mon Adrian, you still have a strong LP! You can do it!!!
I'm disappointed... I feel so sorry for both Adrian and Koffe. They could have done better, you know.
Adrian seemed nervous during the warm-up, where he popped an attempted quad toe loop and looked really upset. And then that fall occurred... it looked soooo painful that I thought he might withdraw... Hope it's not serious.
Speaking of the Olympic spot, the decision will be made this Sunday, right? I'm hoping the SOK sends Adrian to Vancouver... but hey...
So, Adrian will be in no13, and Kristoffer in 15th?.... Does this mean that Adrian gets the ticket to Vancouver?
It's probably not that simple. The Swedish fed and the Swedish Olympic Committee will discuss the matter and we should know shortly what they come up with. I personally hope either Adrian or Kristoffer will be sent to Vancouver and the other to Turin.
As much as I'd love to see Adrian skate at both the Olympics and the Worlds, I'm hoping that Koffe will be sent to Turin and end this season on a high note out there. He has done so much for Sweden and Swedish figure skating, and this season he has fought not only against his fellow skater Adrian but also against the strict criteria established by the SOK... Kudos to Koffe.
So, Sasha has been selected as an alternate and he is going to Vancouver as well. Majorov OS-reserv
