    Thank you so much! It's so nice to get to see these pros skating again. Also, can't wait for the Japan Open to see Patrick Chan and Mao's new programs.

    Thank you so much for the posting the photos! I'm getting nostalgic for the glory days of professional skating just reading through this thread. It sounds like it was a good event, and hopefully there will be more in the future.

    This link has all the pictures that I posted earlier, as well as those of the ladies competition. There's also a summary/review of each performance...you can get a general idea from Google translate.

    This was a practice clip - has it been posted?

    It is just amazing to see Kurt, Alexei and Ilia on the same ice.

    If Jeffrey Buttle won, why are there no pictures of him during his skate? I've seen pics of others but not one of Jeffrey.

    I saw in the links that Ilia skated to "Kashmir". As in Led Zeppelin!? Does anyone who was there know? Did it sound like classic rock to you? If so, cool... very cool...

    Kudos to Takeshi for going for a 3A. And thanks for reminding/explaining the illegal element, I totally forgot Candeloro does backflips.

    Thanks for everyone's photo links and reports.

    Joannie and Sarah's had some disadvantages of the programs by using show programs. I do not think squeezing required elements into the show programs was quite successful.

    Ilia's program was not very CoP friendly with rather lots of runs. I loved it a lot though.

    I think it was the version with no vocal, and sounds more modern. I think I had heard it very recently somewhere else but I cannot recall what it was.

    Yes, it was definitely Kashmir. Not original Zeppelin version, it sounded similar to the ones Armin and the Zhangs used. But it was really cool nonetheless.

    Thanks all - I wish it had been a cut from the original Kashmir but a cover will do nicely. I look forward to seeing it in person maybe someday somewhere.

    I am really in awe of these skaters doing so amazingly well years after their competing - especially the older ones.. I really used to like the professional world champs..
    Thanks to PI .. I discovered I'm actually a Nontheist

    Slutskaya looked liked she had a great time. Those jumps were excellent!

    She was fantastic!Her jumps were just and such a good strectch in her spirals, very impressive

    I feel fortunate to see some of the finest skater from the 6.0 system competing together and you can only hope that there will be other competitions like this. You would think it could work in Europe and North America as well..
