Shoma's "This Town" @IdF Gala. Nice to see him smiling.
I just at fan battle & TSL. Period.TSL's feature on Shoma's possible gaming alter ego is par for the course in snide, gossipy scoops. Real breaking news, which perhaps some fans like to know about.
Hopefully, Shoma will end up remaining under Lambiel's tutelage. It seems to me to be a good fit. Shoma looked in practices as if he was coming out of his funk, but no, he's still got some work to do. And the judges are still perfectly willing to help him out with those huge GOE for average jumps that really aren't as good as they can be from Shoma Uno. The thing is: Shoma looks so smooth and gorgeous as a skater. But frankly, he's also fairly detached emotionally from his skating. He just seems to be going through the motions and not really into his skating. Shoma should not be higher than Deniss Vasiljevs on CO and IN simply because the judges swoon over Shoma's smooth, mesmerizing movement quality:
Shoma still has technical issues with some of his jumps, and there's something going on in his head that has yet to be figured out. I hope someone can reach him. Maybe he needs to simply take a break from the sport. He's young and impressionable, and he doesn't seem to be fully okay emotionally and developmentally as a person, purely based on how disjointed his skating has been, and the fact his coaches dropped him. I'm not going to speculate about what TSL is going on about. It's troubling if true, but none of our business. I'm commenting based on what I've been seeing from Shoma on the ice.
On the same roller coaster!That certainly was a mishmash of his jump layout. Remember Sho sort of warned in interviews about this season for him was not going to be about results but a transition period but sheesh what a roller coaster ride it has been for us fans. Much better competition for him than France even though I think he was robbed of the Bronze here but I won’t dwell on that as it really does not matter in the long run. Hang in there Sho you are still Numero Uno in my eyes and I believe by Nationals we will see a very improved Shoma!
OK you have an appropriate thread to talk about it here.Why is the recent discussion inappropriate? I was surprised to see no mention of it on FSU. Reads to me like people trying to sweep things under the rug because they don't want to confront allegations about their favored skater.
What allegations are you talking about being swept under the rug. Shoma has not committed any criminal offense.Why is the recent discussion inappropriate? I was surprised to see no mention of it on FSU. Reads to me like people trying to sweep things under the rug because they don't want to confront allegations about their favored skater.
