Shaun won the long program, and he finished first overall. He landed a perfect quad and 2 triple axels in his long program. Great job Shaun!!

Hey I'd like to thank you guys for continuing to support me and send me good vibes!
If any of you check IceNetwork regularly, you've probably found out I switched coaches after Finlandia Trophy to Priscilla Hill. I've been really busy making the switch and so far it's been working out great! I'm hoping that she'll be able to help me improve enough to make it on the podium at Nationals, as I'd really like to get a GP invite next season.
I'm thrilled with my skate and we've already begun working on my footworks, spins, and choreography to help my levels and PCS marks.
Congrats!! I was following the news on Ice Network. I did notice you changed coaches and wish you the best with Priscilla! I haven't yet had the chance, but I intend to watch the programs on Ice Network.

A quad and two triple axels...It seems a bit unfair to me that in the US, with so many good skaters, its so hard to qualify for international competitions (the prestigious ones)...I mean, with a quad and two triple axels, you could be at the top in Europe.
I´m not implying that US men are better or whatever, thats a different topic, just saying that since the US has such a large population, it also has too many quality skaters and too few spots :-(
