I agree. Gurdzhi really martured in his skating, but the jumps are still the same for years. He is jumping only 3 different triples since his first year in juniors and doesn't seem to progress in his jumping in any way. Again no 3Lz or 3F attempt, the 2A looks really small. With only 3 different triples he has to skate clean to get a decent score and even if he does, he won't improve significantly because of the lacking technical content. I'm wondering if his coaches are not pushing him enough to work more on the triples, even Weissert did a 3Lz in his FS and IMO Weissert's jumping is worse than Gurdzhi's.Still, Gurdzhi has really decent skating, I like a lot. The axel keeps me not very hopeful though to come close to a triple anywhere soon.
I doubt that every german event or senior-b is handing out medals for SP and FS like at worlds for example.during which more than 70 medals have accumulated.
Good point, with 23 Schott is not a 'youngster' herself. Home soil Euros in Essen (if german fed gets it) could be a great career end for her in her home town.(but also only 2 years older than Nicole) in the German single
The German Ice Skating Union (DEU) wants to compete for the European Figure Skating Championships in January 2023 with the venue Essen. Nothing is yet known about competitors, the allocation by the International Ice Skating Union ISU will take place in the course of next year .Home soil Euros in Essen (if german fed gets it) could be a great career end for her in her home town.
Maybe she’ll has a lutz by then
(it's the one, where they mention, she has once practised a 3A ):
He probably got a time deduction, because he couldn't resist to glue on his finishing gesture - after quite some seconds. I'd say, the end of programm was definitely defined.You need to see Fentz SP in Warsaw!!!
He never looked comfortable in the programs he did with his former partner no matter what music. So he might just has to gain more confidence in his skills. He is a great lifter and thrower, he just couldn't show today. Still H/K have the higher score from Junior Grand Prix, so it's even worth more (less elements). And they got the Tech for Europeans, so I would go with the young pair with a future and a chance for next Olympics. Just as a strategy for the Olympic qualification and the future development, but I'm not German Fed.This.
He is so far from being Partick Swayze ..., and he definitely looks uncomfortable
