    I love his confidence and approach to his season.. a season like this will play an advantage I think to mature skaters emotionally like Ryan.. I don't think he is a favourite but I think he might just surprise people

    I was curious to know how skaters in general are affected by the delay. It sounds like Ryan will benefit because he started training late, and now will have more time.

    ETA- would love to seem him nail the 2 4toes and 2 3axels in the LP at Moscow

    That was a great interview.
    He has a great attitude about skating and his place in it.

    I also hope that he "surprises" in Moscow.

    It would be great if over the course of the SP and LP he was able to do three quads and three triple axels!

    Hersh: Under "horrible circumstances,'' Bradley gains needed time before figure skating worlds
    "I cut it pretty short preparing for nationals,'' Bradley said. "Technically, I was sound. Confidence-wise, I was ready. Training-wise, I wasn’t where wanted to be.

    "This extra five weeks gave me the opportunity to catch my body up to where my mind is. I can’t tell you the gains I made since nationals.''
    ETA: Here are some key quotes from Bradley's media teleconference yesterday via Universal Sports: http://www.universalsports.com/news-...id=530456.html

    Looking forward to seeing Ryan peak at Worlds - he seems like such a great guy!

    Yeah, I think he definitely benefits from the delay. For the other skaters, it's been one very long season.

    I hope he won't put too much pressure on himself. He really needs to have the same kind of mind he had at Nationals !
