Chafik Besseghier, FRA: 58.58 TES + 55.38 PCS = 113.96 Total: 160.39
  • Quad salchow was two footed
  • High triple axel but was tilted in the air and had to step out of it
  • Nice high triple lutz
  • Great arm work in this step sequence with a lot of difficult, varied, quick steps and a lot of speed
  • Flying camel spin with a nice broken variation into a stretched out catchfoot position
  • Very high triple axel + double toe but not great landings on either jump
  • Triple loop with a two foot landing
  • Triple + double toe combination
  • Triple salchow + double toe + double toe
  • His choreographic step sequence seems a little frantic and he's not performing it at all
  • Nice sit spin position pulling right up into the upright position and down into another sit spin
  • Great speed in his spins with a nice stretched out sit position
Romain Ponsart, FRA: 54.94 TES + 56.48 PCS -1.00 = 110.42 Total: 160.45 and into 1st place
  • Fall on the opening quad toe attempt
  • Nice triple axel recovery
  • Great one foot sequence through his footwork but not a lot of speed and I'd like to see him looking at the ice less
  • Great upright catch foot spin position
  • Popped his triple axel into a double and a two footed landing
  • Triple loop a little forward on the landing but hangs on and tacks on the double toe
  • Beautiful triple + double toe
  • Nice low sit spin position but his leg needs to be more stretched
  • Popped his salchow into a single
  • Triple + double toe + double toe with no height
  • Camel spin into a twisted sit spin
  • He needs more power and speed through this choreographic step sequence to really sell it

  • Triple axel + double toe was very nice
  • Triple + double toe--he has a very interesting jump technique and gets very low and leans forward on his takeoff
  • Triple axel  with a turnout but he keeps his free leg up
  • Nice sit spin positions with great speed
  • I'd like to see him more free in his step sequence and really let his upper body move with the steps instead of fighting it
  • Triple + double toe with a step out on the second jump
  • Spiral right into a double axel
  • Doubled the flip and two footed the landing
  • Double salchow
  • Double axel
  • He really needs to work on that camel spin position as it's not an attractive position for him but a nice triangle position

  • He finishes way before his music and has about 5 seconds left after the pose
Nobunari Oda, JPN: 46.63 TES + 60.62 PCS -3.00 = 104.25 Total: 167.20 and into 2nd place
  • Triple axel + double toe + single loop with nice height on the axel
  • Triple flip + triple toe

  • Another fall 
  • Double loop

  • Triple salchow
  • Fall on the quad salchow attempt
