    I might have posted this link a while back. I was hoping this was going to be a new one with a less cheated combo and a real landing.

    I've tried to get into Menshov's skating, but unfortunately it's obvious his idol is Plushenko (not surprising at all). I'm so tired of random dramatic hands that have nothing to do with anything pass as choreo. Harkens back to the day of Urmanov and his weird hands that add nothing to a program.

    Menshow was the little 8 year old who did an exhibition at Centennial on Ice in 1996. It's great to see that he progressed well in the jumps department.
