Group 1
Richard Dornbush, USA: 76.78 TES + 65.56 PCS = 142.34 Total: 205.27
  • Hand down on the quad toe but he lands it
  • Nice triple lutz

  • Good camel positions into a nice low sit spin
  • Beautiful triple axel
  • Hydroblade to triple salchow to double axel
  • Great low sit spin position with broken leg variation
  • Triple lutz + double toe + double loop with both arms overhead and very tight on all the landings
  • Triple flip
  • Triple loop
  • Great speed in his final combination spin with a smooth flying change
  • If he can hit this program clean it will be a big point getter

  • Beautiful quad salchow to open the program

  • His step sequence is decent and he's in to it enough that the audience is clapping along

  • Triple salchow
  • Good camel position but his broken leg variation isn't great and he needs more flexibility through the catch foot
  • Great triple right on the music
  • Right into another triple

  • Fall on his opening quad toe attempt
  • Spread eagle into triple axel--wild in the air and has to step out of it
  • Triple axel + double toe
  • Nice broken leg variation in his camel spin but he needs more stretch through the catchfoot position
  • Good low sit position with a nice change of foot into a twist variation
  • Not a lot of upper body in this step sequence, very slow and a move that looks like he lost his balance; he's giving away a lot of points here by not going for the high levels

  • Double Flip
  • Triple lutz + double toe + double loop really tight
