I am guessing he couldn't get clearance for the INXS originalKeegan's debut of his SP to "Never Tear Us Apart" performed by Joe Cocker: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0x_P8v2RVy0
He scored 89.40 as the only Senior man - jumps were all + GOE (4T+3T, 3A & 3Lz) but only CSSp1 & fall in StSq2: https://www.skatinginbc.com/sites/default/files/results/ss21seniormensp1dro.pdf
For those who can't view Instagram stories, here's a clip of his clip (such nice flow out!): https://twitter.com/CanadianFSNews/status/1428162529759567872Keegan is back at the quad Lutz.
I wonder about Stephen Gogolev. I would have expected him to be in the mix for the Skate Canada spot as well. Has he been assigned to any events yet?Nguyen, Phan, and Orzel are assigned to Autumn Classic. So possible skate off between Orzel and Phan for the final Skate Canada spot.
Gogolev has been training continuously for the past two years in LA except for some timeouts for growth spurts and whatever. He has been training at the Granite Club for a couple of months now. It will be so good to see him back on competitive ice again.He is registered for Ontario Sectionals, so he must still be skating
I'm both happy and nervous about this. Shows that Skate Canada has confidence in him, to give him the opportunity to get Canada a 2nd Olympics spot, but it also puts a lot of pressure on him.
I didn't see the link to his most recent vlog (Aug. 1) posted in this thread: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJbxj0328zEHad a blast at high performance camp this year always good to get some feedback from judges and technical specialists going into the season. Next stop, Oberstdorf
And standing on the podium, as the national anthem played, his proud coach, Keegan Murphy, said he recalled all the sacrifices Wesley and the Connaught Skating Team had made since the start of the ********* to give the rising star the best chance possible at the highest level.
“Our goal was 200 points and he got 199.9, so, that’s pretty close,” laughed Murphy, adding that 200 would normally be enough to challenge for a gold medal.
“We didn’t pick a result goal, as the result is often out of our hands with the judging.
“I wasn’t sure (if Wesley had won). I knew it was going to be a close first or a close second.
“It was a very special feeling (to see Wesley on the podium), as I’ve been teaching him since he was seven.
“There were a lot of very difficult situations over the last 18 months with *********, so it was very validating to see him on that podium, knowing all the sacrifices and wise decisions we made to keep Wesley healthy and engaged.”
Wesley, a student in the sports program at Magee secondary in Vancouver, said it “was a great feeling to be up there for the country” on the podium.
He said his parents watched the event live on YouTube from the edge of their seats at home in Richmond.
“They were very excited, I don’t think they saw this coming,” added Wesley, who is now setting his sights on the next Junior Grand Prix international in Russia in 10 days and, further ahead, the national seniors next year.
Joseph Phan is no longer listed for Autumn Classic as of today (Sept. 8) and it's now a Canadian-only event with the additions of Samuel Angers, Beres Clements & Bennet Toman: https://results.isu.org/events/cscan2021_Men.htmNguyen, Phan, and Orzel are assigned to Autumn Classic. So possible skate off between Orzel and Phan for the final Skate Canada spot.
