I think he needs a quad and some improvement in his general skating. For next season I hope that he will choose good skating music to interpret and forget about playing a character.

Jason Brown will be one to watch too. His LP at Nationals even without the triple axel was spectacular. He already has a great presence on the ice and just needs to keep improving.

Richard will be 20 in a couple of months, so I'm pretty sure he's done growing, and that was a 3x-3t, not a 2x-3t :D
My bad for the combo.
But as a male, I can tell you that body changes a lot after 20 years old !
It's not growing in term of height. But muscles are bigger after 20, shoulders and chest are bigger too. ;)
:D reminiscence of crs :D

Cool.

The body does get thicker as you mature, but is there a big difference between 20 and 25?

IDK, but I see a difference between 20 and 23 year old Charlie White. Scott Moir, not as much but there's a difference there, too.

I agree. I think the same is true of Brian Joubert and Tomas Verner, who look substantially broader/sturdier now than they did around the 2006 Olympics.

All skaters should play some kind of character to give more depth to their expression (and well, to have any kind of expression in many cases ;P).
