    Do you not have access? ETA: If not, I've also posted an identical thread at GS: http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...ion-July-17-21

    Notable U.S. men scheduled to compete at Liberty include the following: Ross Miner (believe he plans to do either SP or FS), Keegan Messing, Max Aaron, Brandon Mroz, Wesley Campbell, Harrison Choate, Timothy Koleto, Emmanuel Savary.
    Thank you Sylvia, you're a gem! And I see that, as always, Liberty will have a wealth of really terrific skaters. Should be exciting!

    "Daphnis and Chloe" by Ravel (choreographed by Karen Kwan-Oppegard) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=io90QNlIQlM


    Enjoy!
    Interesting juxtaposition on the music of Daphnis and Chloe. He is the first skater to use the wonderful chords. Unfortunately he uses them at the very beginning. I'm not sure about that. The beginning portion of the program is the end of the piece - then he goes back to the beginning - then back to the end. The recording is a good one. I can't quite tell if it's Ormandy and the Philadelphia - it might be (the best one in my opinion).

    Two very nice programs, and the short does a great job of showcasing Rabbitt's personality.

    How old is Rabbitt? And what's the status of his triple axel? Is he working on one? Close to getting one?

    From Lynn Rutherford:

    Liberty: According to coach P. Johansson, Ross Minor plans to try quad Sal and quad toe here. He will compete both sp and fs.

    Well, Ross must be feeling confident. His 3jumps, especially the 3sal, never struck me as being big and airy enough to do a Quad, but I wish him lots of luck!

    ^^ Ross has a wonderful 3axel and he usually performs it with great height and consistency, so I would not be surprised to see him being successful with a quad in competition.

    Liberty: Brandon Mroz, who looks slimmer and fitter than ever, plans quad loop in his short program here.

    ITA, Sean's new programs showcase his strengths and his personality. Sean's birthdate is April 8, 1990, so he's 22. I don't know about the status of his 3-axel, but he's looking good and much improved. Competing in the YAS-3 competition must have been inspiring as well as a lot of fun.

    Thanks for posting the links to Keegan & Max's free skates. Impressed by Max's jumps.

    Just the first 3 jumping passes of Ross Miner's LP from the same poster, but not the whole program. You do get to see the 4S attempt and a 3x (both splats, though ) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxrQQrWQ0aA

    Despite that, I like the program (from what I saw). He seems to project more IMO

    Ross is really lovely to watch...great flow, deep edges. I think that this program may be one of the best by the time Nationals arrive.

    Richard Dornbush - An Evening on Ice exhibition program:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHQvsm3wPw0

    Obviously not a competition. However, he nails a 3x while in cumbersome get-up (talking about the glasses), along with a 3l and 2x-2x-2x seq.

    He looks like he's in great shape. Really Hope it translates to a good competitive season ...

    From Johnny's twitter:

    First long program run-through since Vancouver complete. One small mistake. So looking forward to this competition season! #GlitterBeware

    The latest edition of the "Inside Edge" blog is all about Jason Brown (who has been training in Colorado Springs) and Joshua Farris: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news
    In the meantime, both boys are planning to compete on the Junior Grand Prix circuit for one more year. They could have gotten a Grand Prix assignment, so we asked them to explain their decision.

    "Kori and I were talking about it, thinking about what we were going to do," Brown said. "Going into junior worlds, I knew I was going to stay junior another year. It's to do with how the world rankings are done, and we wanted to make sure I had a cushion with the world rankings. The hope is that I'll skate senior next year. I don't know why I would stay junior the Olympic year."

    "At first I really wanted to do a Grand Prix," Farris said. "When I found out I would only have gotten one, I was on the fence about it. I talked to my coaches about it, and we came to the conclusion that if I did one and didn't do well, I didn't want to take that risk of not getting one next year. Plus, we get even more experience. I'm satisfied with my decision. We're young and we've got plenty of time."
