    I really enjoyed watching this competition. Hope they do more like it, brought back some very fond memories of the wonderful pro comps held back in the 90's after the infamous whack on the knee got the public to take notice of figure skating, but in a good way!

    How many years ago did Takeshi retire from competition, 9, 10? I don't think he has skated very often between then and now and yet he went for a triple axel. He should have won this.

    All the skaters were really enjoyable to watch. Even Candeloro in spite of his falls, funny guy.

    Kudos to everyone

    Candeloro is surprisingly good except for the falls. He's actually skating.

    But really only Jeff and Yagudin skated like young man.

    Yagudin is still hot

    my fav woman still amazing too.. Irina just oozes the love of skating.. still reminds me of that rosy cheeked teenager when I first saw her skate..

    I wish these skaters had a tour or something - all of my fav's at once and Joannie and Jeff to sweeten the pot

    Irina was fantastic! Her solid deep edges are still there as well as spring in her jumps. It was great to see her go after that triple flip and the difficult entrance into the loop. And the lift in her double axel, WOW! Most of the ladies skating at nowadays wish they had such a double axel.

    When I clicked on Jeffrey Buttle, it came up T. Honda. Please try again for the Jeff Buttle video. Thanks, Stevlin

    It's not that hard to find the correct Buttle video link since it's the same user who uploaded all the MWO videos (thanks, icechannel2011!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6jswXLSsC4

    What a hottie! *havin' a serious man crush here* I think I need a cold shower now. Jeff is definitely the headliner from both these competitions (JO & MWO) for me! Amazing!

    I have to agree, even though I'm not a fan and dislike 'Singing in the Rain'. The other guys look rusty, but Kurt is still on the top of his game. He must be over 40, so this is darn impressive.

    He's 46. But even if he'd been younger, that was a fantastic performance; really fun and entertaining. I must say it was funny seeing Kurt in the K&C...

    Oh my god.

    I totally remember why I love Ilia. What a magnificent beast. And still so flexible and in such great shape considering his competitive career ended 14 years ago and he's been busy opening his new school and everything.



    Yags, wow, just wow, I mean IMO he looked in quite a bit of pain by the end and it's such a shame the jumps aren't there for him anymore, but that footwork! Oh my. No-one will ever top it.



    I hope this is still going when Plushy finally retires. Can you imagine that? The three Russian Champions competing against each other again?

    Kurt was just magical. He really is the master. Definitely reminded me why he's the reason I'm a skating fan.

    My photos from Medal Winners Open:

    Also, here's a version of Singin' in the Rain sans commentary:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBqqX3eVuRc

    Kurt trained hard this summer to get ready for this competition, and to get Singin' in the Rain ready for a live audience (doing everything with the umbrella in hand can't be that easy). He's even skating it in the same costume as the original performance. He was so disappointed the debut wasn't perfect (that salchow). But in my admittedly biased opinion, I thought it was awesome...

    Oh btw, Willowway, according to the program list I got, Ilia skated to Kashmir by two different artists - Bond, and Escala featuring Slash.
