And I’m ecstatic all over again remembering, in the tiniest details, the perfect program of Javier Fernández, who’s now two-time World champion: the Spaniard had the skate of his life in Boston and, at the end of it, his hands on his face in disbelief, I felt like standing up and shouting “Olé!” for this wonderful man who continues to make history for his country.); and this is wrong for all the reasons in the world.With all of these in mind – and with the promise there’s so much more where these came from – let’s consider 2016 Worlds in retrospect.Satō’s fourth-place finish at the 1965 World Championships marked Japan’s highest result at the global competition.He was invited to go on tour with the medalists, but had to leave before it completed its run to compete at the national championships.Boyang Jin has the meanest quadruple lutz in the business and Nathan Chen can land both quadruple lutz and quadruple flip without having edge issues (i.e. As you can see, Yuzuru Hanyu has a lot of kids to play with this season and I invite you to discover them all.In fact, I also invite you to take a look at @magicaleggplant‘s introductory posts about all that technical stuff. And in case you’re not doing it already, browse through @soyouwanttowatchfs and you will find all the skating information you need.
``That kind of distracted me.``I think it's just a lack of belief in what I'm doing right now, in my jumps, just doubting what I've been doing.'' No one had been plagued more by doubt and lack of belief than Czisny, and never had that shown more than in the short program of her two previous appearances at worlds.
Fun fact: I was thinking about the dance pattern for next season and guessed that it was going to be the Paso and it turns out I was right!
Are you going to miss the Finnstep or are you more excited for the Paso Doble next season?
There was no better example of her transfiguration than what Czisny did in Friday's short program at the World Figure Skating Championships in Moscow.``I guess this sort of proves what I have been saying all season,'' Czisny told me by telephone after a fourth-place finish that should have been third. ``If the confidence isn't there, I just fake it like tonight,'' she said with a laugh.
So a wonky landing on her second triple jump, the flip, became a minor glitch instead of the start of a major mess.
