This program is a leftover from Yuma's more junior-ish days and it shows, but he and his team have done their best to refine the choreo during his time away from competition.

He said he's thinking of using the Werther EX as his Olympic SP and that will be something truly special to behold. Ugh, I love him.

I fear there's not enough khachapuri in the world to make me like Egadze.

What happened to Irakli Maysuradze? May we have him back, please?

4S+3T - no flow
4T - that was going all sorts of wrong - stayed on one foot, but 3-turns out
Fly Camel Spin 4
3A - not a lot of height, hand down
Step Sequence 2
Ch Sit Spin 3

Ch Combo Spin 4

Par for the course for Egadze - could have been worse based on the lean on the quadruple toeloop. Oh, Gleikhengauz this time. How lovely.

81.30 = 3rd Place

Egadze should really tuck that loose handkerchief back in his pocket.
I thought it was a loose handkerchief at first, then I realized it was the end of the half-sash he's got on the front of his tunic and I wondered if we were in for a costume change. Alas, no. Though that would have made this program 1,000 times more interesting.

Can Artur Danielian (is he still alive?) please switch to Armenia so we can have a Russian export to the Caucasus who can actually skate and entertain me darkening the ISU's halls.

I still remember the days when I thought Camden was going to be The Next Big Thing.

Wow, they seem so far away now.

Camden - yeesh - clean on the jumps then a hand down in one of the spins and a likely time violation. This program is still a stinker, even when the jumps are landed.

4T
3A
Fly Camel Spin 4
3Lz+3T
Step Sequence 4

Ch Combo Spin 3V - problems with a jump transition
Ch Sit Spin 4

Pretty good skate for Pullkinen - he always has to have one jump error, doubt he would have expected it to be the change foot combination spin that would cause him a problem.

86.40 = 2nd Place

Eeek - that change combo spin went all kinds of wrong for Pulkinen.

Ummm...was that a disguised fall on the ending spin? Nope, green blob - I must have missed that last time.

I know most people hate that Vasiljevs programs are wannabe Lambiel programs, but how do we know that's not why he went to Lambiel in the first place? I don't see that as such a terrible thing.

Anyway, he biffed the quad, but the rest was nicely skated and he's enjoyable to watch.

4S< - fall
3Lz+3T<
Ch Camel Spin 3
3A
Step Sequence 4
Ch Combo Spin 4

Fly Sit Spin 4

The fall on the quadruple Salchow did not look kind to Deniss' ankle. The rest of his elements were excellent. I wonder if Vasiljevs needs to give it up and focus on everything else.

82.14 = 3rd Place

Deniss - doing what he usually does. It was a lovely program, but I'm with @Wyliefan, it's too early here for soft, mellow "Hallelujah."
