    Yes. Definitely meant it as an understatement.

    On Friday, Kevin wrote on his FB:

    Finally, some rest! After what was probably the most stressful 3 weeks of my career, I'm now able to reflect a bit.

    Last week in London was simply incredible; the support given by the fans and volunteers was really something special. Competing at a World Championships in Canada is something that I'll never forget. I'm so glad I could experience it.

    This year, I was able to reach that next level – winning my first major international championship, and making it to the top 5 in the world. Yes!! o(≧▽≦)o

    I'd like to thank everyone for their continued support. Through all the highs and the lows, you've always encouraged me to try my best and never give up.


    And now, thanks to you, I've persevered.


    ...On to the next, WTT 2013! Let's end the season with some fun. すごく楽しみにしています!(*´▽`)ノ

    I have never seen Kevin so happy, so responsive, as he was in London. He seemed to really enjoy all the attention and support and reached out to the fans. He has really emerged since his 4CC win.

    Cross-posting from the Canadian thread:

    Also, were you aware that he skated in Japan in THE ICE the last week in July? A video of his performance is linked in this post. There was a suggestion that this might be his short program for this year. If so, I really like it. We'll find out if it is this weekend, hopefully.

Kevin has come a long way in the last couple of years and it really mastering the showmanship angle. He has terrific arm and hand movement now....very expressive. He's a dark horse for sure at Sochi. It would not surprise me at all if he were to medal if he skates well.

    From his fb:
    "For those who haven't yet heard, I will unfortunately not be competing at this year's B.C. Summerskate. However, I will be taking part in a live stream interview on Thursday. Please see below for more information.
    http://www.skatecanada.ca/AboutUs/Ne...S/Default.aspx"


    Anyone have any info as to why?

    Glad to see this. Kevin deserves his own fan thread , and I'm wishing him all the best for the coming Olympic year. May he have many more skates like 4CC's last year.

    ^^^ Thank you aemerald. Too bad he couldn't showcase his programs at the BC due to his skates. What are his programs? Is his SP the one he skated recently at Japan?

    Here's a vid of little Kevin. He's a real cutie and spoke well for his age.

    Very cute, spikey. thanks a lot for this. Where do you find them! Kevin always speaks well, and has a great dry sense of humour. A couple of years ago, when Canada hoped against hope that we would get the magic combined placement of thirteen, he endeared himself to me forever when , after placing 12th, he remarked "I've done my bit, it's up to Patrick now."

    No idea about his programs yet.
    Do you mean this program spikydurian http://youtu.be/WwZrxu-l4Yk?
    It looks like that's just an exhibition program to Back in black/Thunderstruck.

    It seems like he said on the BC interview that he'll be debuting his new free skate at Japan Open so that makes me think he already debuted his short at The ICE in Japan.
    I love how he mentioned he was the first man to land 5 quads in a series of competitions during Canadian nationals...I figure he means in one competition?
    He also mentioned that if his skating career doesn't pan out, he would like to be an English teacher in Japan. hehe. He's so cute!

    Ok, this is the program he skated at The Ice which I'm thinking might be his short program:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ef76wu4o4N0

    Sorry. Got all confused. Just needed to actually read through this thread. hehe. Duh.

    ETA: Is that Adelina Sotnikova?

    Liked that a lot. He sure is becoming a performer and seems to be enjoying it too.

    I was amazed at his improvement last year. He and Max Aaron would have to win the awards for the most improved skaters.

    All right, Kevin's new programs are wonderful. He has found his own expression rather than trying to follow someone else's ideas. It is wonderful to see him relaxed and happy and his own person.
    The sky's the limit for Kevin now.

    I never dreamed two years ago that he could become the skater he was in the two exhibitions from Japan. They were both great.
