    The criticism of Hanyu is that he's scored as if he was there already.
    It will be a long time before Hanyu matches the elegance of John Curry.
    Every move that he made had a "purpose", beyond accruing points.

    For those who may be interested, I just published an interview with World Professional Champion Lorna Brown. She was a close friend of John's and a member of his Company and talks about their friendship here:
