I was hoping Camden would get Salt Lake City
Those definitely look like blades, not wheels.That doesn't like it's 'on ice' though. It looks like Nathan is on roller blades on concrete.
IndeedIt's an excellent backflip, though, especially if he just learned it.
Yes. Nathan's original IG post/clip: https://www.instagram.com/p/B1CH0-Wno4d/ (some of the skater comments are )Not sure about the surface, though. Is this the outdoor rink at Sun Valley?
Nathan's back flip clip was posted by Nathan himself on his Instagram yesterday and was learned AFTER the show (on Sunday morning). Pro skater Ashley Clark taught him in one session, apparently (her Instagram story on Sunday morning was copied for posterity here): https://twitter.com/aboutNathan0505/status/1160614772963856385
Ah okay, now it looks like ice!
I guess this is probably unofficial, but the Nebelhorn Trophy's page, does list a couple of the planned competitors (translation provided by Google - so if spelling/grammar/weird errors, blame the bot):
"... The popular American Jason Brown wants to present his new freestyle on "Schindler's List" in Germany for the first time in front of an audience."
Thx. It looks like the US men, despite having Pulkinen, Alexei, and Tomoki going senior, still have 4 men with a shot of placing top 4-5, or even medal in the first few jgps. Maybe that's the reason USFS is holding off announcing assignments for the JGP Russia. They want to save spots for the top finishers, while leaving spots for others like maybe Sjoberg or HsiehTop Junior Men scores thus far- (and top novice scores)

Off-Season Adventures with Jason Brown (summary of his travels earlier this summer): https://usfigureskatingfanzone.com/...g-off-season-adventures-with-jason-brown.aspx
He's also spoken regularly about going for 2022.I have a feeling that this is Jason's last competitive season. Talks abougt being off the ice - vacation, school. And Schindler is such a sad piece - not his usual thing. I love his skating, but it must be frustrating. The sport has changed so much.
I don’t really follow your logic, but he has said in many interviews this past year that his goal is to continue through the 2022 Olympics and to try to make the Olympic team.I have a feeling that this is Jason's last competitive season. Talks abougt being off the ice - vacation, school. And Schindler is such a sad piece - not his usual thing. I love his skating, but it must be frustrating. The sport has changed so much.

ETA that I noticed the FSO article has since been updated with his programs:Jordan Moeller Q&A article: http://figureskatersonline.com/news...-enjoyment-from-skating-in-a-different-scene/
From last season's U.S. Men's thread:Update on 8/19: Jordan will be skating to “Ease My Mind” by Ben Platt choreographed by Jeremy Abbott for his short program. For his free skate, Jordan will skate to “Adagio in G Minor” as performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra. It was choreographed by Anna Matzuszewski and Jordan Moeller.

U.S. men have received 12 Grand Prix slots in the initial selection round:
Nathan Chen (Skate America & France)
Vincent Zhou (Cup of China & Russia)
Jason Brown (Skate America & NHK/Japan)
Tomoki Hiwatashi (France & NHK/Japan) GP debut
Camden Pulkinen (Skate Canada & China) GP debut
Alex Krasnozhon (Russia)
Skate America 3rd spot TBD
Andrew Torgashev is expected to return to the JGP for his final season of ISU Junior eligibility.
If Jason can get the jumps in, it could be a truly memorable program.
If he can't, it could turn out to be one of those programs that make fans debate artistry vs. jumps.
You are now banned. How can a member of FSU not know who Ilia Malinin is? He is only the son of Tatiana Malinina and Roman Skorniakov.Well, after the exodus in USA junior mens last year it looks like we are still in business. All 3 men in top 6 after SP.. I need to familiarize myself though with these guys (except Ryan). Who are Ilia and Joseph?
