All Kinds of Awesome at the JGP
Earlier this summer, Joshua Farris earned our eternal love by tweeting he was pissed not to be awarded a Senior Grand Prix event after his success last season. Someone quickly got him to take it down, but a love affair was born. Farris showed them why he deserved an entry over one of our other hot messes (whom the USFSA continually invests in) by landing a clean Quad Toe in the free skate. He has a few Jill Trenary landings to clean up that should keep him from peaking too early. More expression is also needed overall. The technique is simply stunning. It makes us pray that it is technique PChiddy will have left behind.
Lovely Russian Pairs skating.
Kosigina and Moroshkin's take on the Junior Short Dance. Where is the hip hop?!
Her future in singles may be in serious doubt, but Kiri Baga is lovely nonetheless.
Will beautiful knee bend, joy and one hell of a flutz, Satoko Miyahara looks like she may follow in the footsteps of Mao Asada and Kanako Murakami.
Not so awesome...Courtney Hicks being ganglier than Sarah Hughes with every inch she grows.
