Any videos?
Some are posted in the WTT threads in the Kiss & Cry section (ETA: currently open to all).

NBCSN's first delayed broadcast of highlights (RD, Ladies/Men SP) starts at 11:30 pm Eastern with Tanith White (host), Tara Lipinski & Johnny Weir.

According to the Planned Program Entries linked from the ISU's WTT event page, Shoma is planning to open his FS with 3A+4T (when did he last try this combo?).

I was late seeing this. Caught only Hanyu and Chen. Will watch everything tomorrow.

Who is the person who commentated for all of this on peacock? Very knowledgeable on every skater, very knowledgeable on the elements. Complementary towards everyone. Only negative thing is that he sounds exactly like Piers Morgan so I could not get fully into him. LOL

Well, some of us were snarking on Simon Reed (in the WTT Ladies SP & FS play-by-play thread, for example) because he doesn't seem to know what an Euler (half loop connecting jump) is and had a few strange/incorrect name pronunciation issues.

Lynn Rutherford's TeamUSA.org article WTT Day 3 article (Pairs & Ladies FS) includes some event takeaways heading into next season: https://www.teamusa.org/News/2021/A...Place-Behind-Team-Russia-At-World-Team-Trophy

"In the [World Team Trophy] player area, there was a national competition even on the whiteboard.
It is filled with illustrations and messages that are full of individuality from each country [CAN & FRA, RUS & USA].
The Japanese team board will be released tomorrow."

Sure, Alison was born in China, but she came to Canada at a very young age
She was adopted as a baby/toddler. She learned to skate in Canada and is Canadian.

And the Russian Fed didn't break up a bunch of dance teams to put S/K together because they thought S/K had more potential as he said over and over and over. That isn't even close to what happened.
