    Denis Ten Fan Thread!

    I am a new skating fan, and I fell in love with Denis Ten last Worlds. He's so charming on the ice, has really nice lines, and his triple axels are huge. Here's hoping he can push for the podium in Sochi!

    Good luck to Denis. He was wonderful at last year's worlds.

    Has anyone heard updates on how Denis is doing with his training and healing his early season injuries?

    I'd so love to see Denis on the podium in Sochi!

    Assuming his injuries are healed, and knowing he doesn't have to compete in the team event, he could definitely medal with fresh legs vs the other guys who've already done the team event.
    BARK LESS. WAG MORE.

    A couple weeks ago, TSL reported that Denis was having visa/passport problems. As a result, he hasn't been able to train with Frank in L.A. very much.

    I love him and am hoping for the best at the Olympics. But honestly, his season has been quite difficult so far, so I don't know what to expect.

    So many obstacles this season, such a shame. Hope he is able to be healthy and unencumbered in the New Year. Go Denis!

    Congrats to Ten, and after his lovely comment about Patrick Chan, I like him even more!

    Thank goodness for Denis Ten, who was the only one who skated with a purpose in the FS and how lovely it is that it eventually paid him huge dividends.

    I hope he continues on to the next quad and stays strong so that he can do even better at the next Olympics.

    I'm so thrilled for him! After worlds last year I knew he was going to be on the podium. Even with his rough season and 9th place in the short, I still knew he was going to make it. (Should have gone to Vegas with that...... ). I felt kind of bad hoping for the others to fall and keep him in third place but I guess it paid off.

    I hope this is these medals of late, are a sign of even more great things to come from Denis.

    Oops wrong Ten. That was Jeremy Ten (Canada). I'm a bit embarrassed.

    My comment still stands about enjoying his skating and hoping for the best.

    Congrats also to Frank Caroll for coaching his third Olympic medalist.

    Linda Fratianne, silver, 1980
    Evan Lysacek, gold, 2010
    Denis Ten, bronze, 2014

    I think Frank is the most successful U.S. Olympic coach.

    I don't get to see Denis skate very often, but every time I do I really enjoy his skating. I'm so glad that he won the bronze!

    Uh, forgetting someone big, aren't we?

    Denis was fabulous @ last year's worlds, and he proved that his performance there was no fluke with yesterday's free skate! Many congrats to him & his team!
