Will the skaters get a 10% bonus for the jumps which are done in the second half of the short program as of this current season or the season following the Olympic season?

From this season.

Proustable, thank you for the two articles you brought here. So, if Chan gets the consistency he's looking for on the 4F and/or 4S, what do you think his jump content is going to be in the free skate, 4T/3T, 4F or 4S, 3A and the rest of the triple jumps + a 2A?

As far as PChiddy choosing Johnson over Krall, I have to trust him that he made the right decision, what else can I do...

You don't have him repeating any jumps, do you? There's currently upto 12 jumps in a program (eight passes, three of them combos, one a three jump combo). The goal here isn't to replace on quad with a harder one; it's to add a quad (imo). People have been discussing that the standard by Sochi could be three quads, two 3As. I wouldn't be surprised to see him going for a back-end 4T, and ending his program with the triple flip (getting rid of the 2A). Three quads (one w/ a triple toe), one triple axel, two lutzes (one with the half-loop/3S), the loop, the flip, and he'll tack on a double somewhere if he remembers (though if he lands all that, I hope he just ignores the double. 3-2 combos for points rarely are interesting)

Does anyone know who else has skated to La Boheme?

though I don't know whether Patrick will be skating to this piece? Too short for a LP?

Thanks, iris81. Curious to see how this new rule will affect the jump layout in the skaters' SPs.

Ideally yes but realistically three quads alongside triple jumps, spins, step sequences and linking moves might be setting the bar too high even for Chan well trained as he is and in spite of his effortless gliding around the rink. Then again, anything is possible.:)

Actually Davis and White used two different pieces of music for their short dance. The first part up to around 1:46 comes from Puccini's La bohème and the remaining part is Verdi's La Traviatta.:)

:eek: 3 quads. That takes up a lot of energy.

O Gawd.......#1 well, gaudy anyway. I can't see Patrick in all those frills and lacy things :scream:

#2 looks more like something he would be comfortable in.

Is Tu Ly a renowned fashion designer in Canada? I can't say I like too many of the costumes he designed for Patrick.
