2017 World Championships Men’s Preview

It’s all about the quads, bout the quads, no triples should be the motto of the men’s event at the World Championships in Helsinki.  Nathan Chen made history at the US Championships and again at Four Continents when he became the first man to land five quads in a free program.  Several skaters are attempting quad lutzes and quad flips and even quad loops.

Javier Fernandez enters this event as the reigning two-time World Champion and five-time European Champion. He set a personal best defending his World title last season, scoring an impressive 314.93 points.  He has had a less than stellar season this year, placing 4th at the Grand Prix Final and failing to score over 300 points.  Most of this can be attributed to his technical performances which have not been clean this season.  His program components have been strong, with his best short program performance equal to that of Yuzuru Hanyu.  He has the highest program components score in the free skate this season, besting Hanyu.  In the short program he has a very slight technical disadvantage as he has the easier quad salchow and quad toe.  In the free skate, he only has three quads, putting him 10 or even 15 points behind the other top men in the field in planned jump content.  He has to skate perfectly clean if he wants to hold on to his World title.  He has the 2nd best short program, 3rd best free skate, and 3rd best total scores.

Yuzuru Hanyu is the two-time reigning World Silver Medalist.  He competed at Four Continents for the first time since 2013 and walked away with the silver medal.  He started his season with a silver medal at Skate Canada but was able to take home gold from the Grand Prix Final.  He was the first skater to score over 300 points and currently holds the record of 330.43.  However, he has not come close to that mark this season, scoring in the low 300s.  He is the first skater to land a quad loop and has it in both of his programs this season.  His short program includes a quad loop and a quad salchow.  He has five planned quads in his free skate, including the quad loop, two quad salchows, and two quad toes.  His jump content base value in the free skate is 90 points.  His biggest issue is skating his programs cleanly, and he hasn’t been able to skate a clean program, let alone two clean programs in competition this season.  He also has been bested on the program components this season by Patrick Chan and Fernandez.  He has the best short program, best free skate, and 2nd best total scores.

Shoma Uno is the reigning Four Continents Bronze Medalist.  He won a gold and silver on the Grand Prix circuit and took home bronze from the Grand Prix Final.  Last season, he finished a disappointing 7th at Worlds after he won bronze at the Grand Prix Final in his first senior season.  His personal best score is 288.05, set at Four Continents, however he crossed the 300 point threshold a few weeks ago at Coupe de Printemps, a senior B event.  These events are often overscored and thus do not count towards personal best scores, but it will be interesting to see how close he can get to that mark.  His short program includes a quad flip and a quad toe.  His free skate includes four quads, including a quad loop (new at Four Continents), quad flip, and two quad toes.  His planned base value of 84 for his jumps is well below the 90 point threshold that several other top competitors are aiming for, however, he has the best program components of any of the younger skaters.  For both of his programs, he is only within 3-4 points of the top program component scores handed out this season.  He has the 4th best short program, 5th best free skate, and 4th best total scores.

Nathan Chen is the reigning Four Continents Champion.  He won a silver medal at the NHK Trophy to qualify for the Grand Prix Final where he won the silver medal.  In just his first senior season, he has been setting record after record and making history with his programs.  His personal best was set at Four Continents and is 307.46, making him one of only three skaters to score above 300 points in major competition.  What is most impressive about him, is that he has the ability to land five quads in a program cleanly and receive positive GOEs on all of his elements.  He showed a bit of a crack in his armor at Four Continents but was still able to hold off some formidable competition to take home his first championship gold medal.  As expected, he has the best TES scores for the short program and free skate.  His short program includes a quad lutz and a quad flip, giving him the highest jump base value of the competition.  His free skate has a quad lutz, quad flip, two quad toes and a quad salchow.  His program components have been improving throughout the season, going from 40 points in the short program to 43 and from 79 to 88 in the free skate.  He has been working with Marina Zoueva this season, but he’s also a classically trained ballet dancer and it is likely that the increase in his scores is partially based on reputation as he’s made his mark in his first senior season.  His program components at Four Continents, were much higher than they were earlier in the season, and he admitted that he was focused on the technical elements and wasn’t able to put out as strong as an artistic performance as he has in the past.  He is definitely a sleeper for the gold medal, as he has the most difficult content and is the only one who’s been able to skate two clean programs this season, but the program components may hold him back if skaters like Hanyu are relatively clean and have a several point lead on him in that segment.  He has the 3rd best short program, 2nd best free skate, and best total scores.

Boyang Jin was the surprise bronze medalist at last year’s World Championships.  He was the first man to land a quad lutz+triple toe combination in competition.  He won a silver medal at Cup of China this season, but failed to qualify for the Grand Prix Final and he finished off the podium at Four Continents.  He has made strides in the performance quality of his skating, but he’s still behind the rest of the top men in this field.  His other main issue has been landing his jumps and completing them cleanly.  He gives a lot of points away with negative grades of execution.  His personal best came at last year’s Four Continents, where he scored 289.83.  His short program includes a quad lutz and a quad toe, while his free skate has a quad lutz, quad loop, quad salchow and two quad toes.  He has the most difficult free skate planned with the base value for the jumps over 95 points.  However, at Four Continents, where he first debuted his new free skate layout, his TES was only 100 points.  With missed jumps and negative GOEs he lost enough points that he was only able to gain 5 points over his planned jump base value with GOEs, three spins, a step sequence and a choreographic sequence.  And his program components really cost him points, as he’s scoring 10 points behind Nathan Chen in that segment.  Unfortunately, even if he landed a perfectly clean program, he might not have enough technical value to offset the deficits on the artistic side.  He has the 6th best short program, 7th best free skate, and 6th best total scores.

Patrick Chan finished 5th at Worlds last year and 4th at Four Continents last month.  He qualified for the Grand Prix Final after winning a pair of gold medals, but only finished 5th overall.  He takes a calculated risk with his short program, only going for one quad toe, which gives him a base value for his jumps 10 points less than Nathan Chen.  That’s a large gap to overcome, but he’s banking on a clean program and strong program components to make up the gap.  Unfortunately, Hanyu, Fernandez, Uno, and Chan can all put out clean short programs with two quads with strong program components.  This strategy works if other’s falter, but if they hit their jumps he might be out of contention for the podium before the free skate even begins.  He only plans two quads in his free skate, both quad toes.  His jump base value is 77 points, just below Fernandez, but nearly 15 points lower than Hanyu and Chen.  Between two programs he has 25 points to make up just in jumps to try and catch Hanyu and Chen.  His skating is effortless and he earns the high program components and GOEs he receives.  His personal best is just under 300 at 295.27 but that was set way back in 2013.  He has the 5th best short program, 4th best free skate, and 5th best total scores.

Jason Brown is in a similar boat to Patrick Chan.  He doesn’t have the technical firepower to compete with the top skaters, but is relying on superior spins, step sequences, and skating skills to push him into contention.  He suffered an injury that kept him out of US Nationals and didn’t allow him to attempt a single quad at Four Continents where he finished 6th.  His personal best is 268.38, set at Skate America this year where he landed a quad in competition for the first time.  His most difficult layout was at Skate America, where he attempted one quad toe in each program.  By pushing his combination to the second half of the short program, he has a slight technical advantage on Patrick Chan, but is still well below the rest of the field. Even with all of his gifts, his free skate planned jump content is 10 points less than Chan’s, 25 points less than Hanyu and Chen.  To try and make it to the podium he needs to find 35 points these skaters don’t have, or he needs a lot of mistakes at the top.  Plus, he’s losing ground in his sweet spot, the program component marks, with Chen beating him on program components in the short program.  Brown is still one of the few skaters to score above 90 in PCS in the free skate.  He has the 6th best free skate and 8th best total scores.

Denis Ten has missed a good chunk of the season due to injury.  He only was able to compete at one Grand Prix event, Trophee de France, where he won silver.  He wasn’t able to compete at Four Continents and he finished just 10th at the Asian Winter Games.  He was 11th at Worlds last season, his worst finish since 2011.  He has one quad toe in his short program and one quad toe in his free skate.  His personal best was set at Four Continents in 2015 when he scored 289.46.  He had the 9th best short program, 9th best free skate, and 7th best total scores.

Maxim Kovtun is the reigning European Silver Medalist.  He finished 18th at Worlds last season.  He finished 7th at his two Grand Prix assignments this season.  His personal best came at Europeans, where he scored 266.80.  He has two quads in each program, one toe and one salchow.  However, the rest of his free skate content is just not strong enough to compete with the top men, and he very rarely puts two clean programs together.  He has the 7th best short program, 10th best free skate, and 10th best total scores.

Mikhail Kolyada is the reigning European Bronze Medalist.  His personal best is 267.97, set at Worlds last year where he placed 4th.  He has a quad toe in his short program and a quad lutz and quad toe in his free skate.  He has the 8th best short program score.

Other skaters looking to crack the top ten at Worlds include Misha Ge (7th at Four Continents), Kevin Reynolds (3rd at Skate Canada), Alexei Bychenko (3rd at Rostelecom Cup), Jorik Hendrickx (4th at Europeans), and Keiji Tanaka (3rd at NHK Trophy).

Adam Rippon currently has the 10th best short program, 8th best free skate and 9th best total scores for the season and placed 6th at the Grand Prix Final, however, suffered an injury that took him out of US Nationals and the rest of this season.

2016 Rostelecom Cup Men’s Preview

Javier Fernandez put together two solid performances to win his second World Championship, defeating his training mate and gold medal favorite Yuzuru Hanyu.  He proves that you can combine the quads with artistry and is one of only two skaters to surpass the 300 point mark in competition.  He only had one loss last season, and that was at the Grand Prix Final.  His personal best is about 35 points higher than the next closest competitor.  He has yet to compete this season.

Shoma Uno won Skate America earlier this season with a new personal best total score.  He showed off his quad flip in both programs, the only skater in the world attempting this jump. He has the 2nd best short program, best free skate and best total scores.

After these two skaters, the picture gets a bit muddy as the rest of the skaters are bunched up together but very far away from the top and haven’t had the best starts to their seasons.

Chafik Besseghier leads the pack with his Challenger Series performance, winning gold at Cup of Nice.  His best finish on the Grand Prix was a 5th place showing at Trophee Eric Bompard back in 2010.

Max Aaron is coming off an 8th place showing at Worlds and a season committed to improving his artistry to match the jumps he has been known for.  However, he only won bronze at Lombardia Trophy and bronze at the Autumn Classic International and does not have any top 10 scores.

Mikhail Kolyada came off an impressive 4th place finish at Worlds last season in his first trip to the event.  He started his season finishing 4th at Finlandia Trophy and also does not currently have any top 10 scores.

Alexei Bychenko had the performance of his career last year to win the silver medal at the European Championships.  He went on to finish 13th at Worlds and was surpassed by skaters who finished below him at Europeans.  He finished just 7th at Finlandia Trophy earlier this season.

The best short program score of the season so far is 90.56 with the top 10 all scoring above 80 points.  The best free skate score is 190.19 with the top 10 all scoring above 164.  The best total score is 279.34 with the top 10 all scoring above 239.

Gold: Javier Fernandez

Silver: Shoma Uno

Bronze: Mikhail Kolyada

2016 World Championships Men’s Free Skate Recap

Javier Fernandez took advantage of his training mate Yuzuru Hanyu leaving the door open and skated the program of his career to earn his second straight World title.  Skating a sophisticated, suave program to Frank Sinatra music, he showcased the best technical and performance marks of the event.  He received over 118 points on the technical side.  His base value was 94.73 including three clean quads, and he received no negative GOE marks from any judge.  His highest scoring element was a quad salchow + triple toe which earned him 17.09 points.  He nearly received perfect program components, earning 26 10.00 marks from the judges.  He received an average of 10.00 on both choreography and interpretation.  He fought though an injury to his right heel that left him unable to practice yesterday and barely allowed him to practice today.  Going into the competition he said “it’s just about yourself to be ready and be focused and to do the best program you can…I just went out and knew I needed to do a clean program.”  He also credited his coach Brian Orser and Hanyu with his success.  He said “to have [Hanyu] here with me is…special because we’re spending every day together training.  We’re doing something good, all of us, together.”

Yuzuru Hanyu had a 12 point lead coming in to the free skate, but it wasn’t enough to hold off Fernandez given the mistakes he made.  He fell on a quad salchow attempt and doubled a triple salchow.  Four of his jumps received negative GOEs.  His total technical score was less than Fernandez’s base value.  His best element was a triple axel + triple toe that earned him 16.79 points.  What was most shocking were his program component scores.  His entire program was off today, and the Hanyu we’re used to seeing didn’t shine through.  He received some PCS marks in the 8s and didn’t receive a single 10.00.  About his performance, an emotional Hanyu said, “I can’t explain…I want to do it again.”

Boyang Jin won the first World men’s medal for China with a somewhat more tentative free skate then we’re used to seeing from him.  He was credited with four fully rotated quads, including a quad lutz, but only two received positive GOEs.  He was the only other skater beside Fernandez to break 100 points on the technical side at this event.  His best element was a triple axel + half loop + triple salchow that earned 14.40 points.  When asked about his history making performance, he immediately broke out into a smile and said through a translator, “I feel very excited to be the first man to get the bronze medal for China…for next season I definitely want to train harder and get better performances and better results.”

Mikhail Kolyada pulled up from 6th to finish 4th overall.  He hit an opening quad toe and received all positive GOEs from the judges.  Despite having lower planned content and only earning a base value of 78.32 points, his final technical score was 93.67 after GOEs were added in.  His best element was a triple axel + triple toe that earned 14.80 points.

Patrick Chan dropped to 5th after a disappointing free skate that included a popped axel and a doubled flip.  He earned less than 80 points on the technical side.

Adam Rippon put out the free skate of his career, to finish 4th in the segment and 6th overall.  He stood up on the quad lutz, but it was judged under-rotated.  Everything else in his program was clean, earning positive GOEs.  He had a base value of 80.87, but earned over 93 points for his technical mark.  I found his program components to be a bit low, earning an average of 8s across the board.  Max Aaron and Grant Hochstein also had personal best skates to give all three US skaters a place in the top 10, but it wasn’t enough to hold on to three spots at Worlds next season.

Hanyu’s silver medal along with Shoma Uno’s 7th place finish makes Japan the only country with three men’s spots at Worlds next season.

 

Javier Fernandez, ESP: 118.05 TES + 98.36 PCS = 216.41 Total: 314.93

  • Gorgeous quad toe to open his program
  • Quad salchow + triple toe
  • Great triple axel + double toe; rotating as fast as the music
  • Great quad salchow
  • Triple flip + half loop + triple salchow
  • Triple axel
  • You would never know that his landing foot is bothering him and had to be iced earlier today
  • Triple lutz
  • Triple loop
  • This is the type of skate that gives other skaters little room for excuses; he nailed three gorgeous quads in an otherwise very ambitious program, while still showcasing great spins and steps and details in the choreography and performance to give a truly complete package
  • No one thought he had a chance of beating Yuzuru Hanyu, but he just threw down the performance of a lifetime and handled the pressure like a true champion.

Yuzuru Hanyu, JPN: 93.59 TES + 92.02 PCS -1.00 = 184.61 Total: 295.17

  • Quad salchow just a little too much speed and a hand down on the landing
  • Quad toe
  • Triple flip seemed to come out of nowhere
  • Quad salchow sat down on the landing
  • Triple axel + triple toe
  • Triple axel back on his heel on the landing + half loop + single salchow
  • Triple loop
  • Triple lutz hand down on the landing
  • Despite all the mistakes he’s not letting the program get away from him and is really turning on the performance in this step sequence.
  • Technically that was a very disappointing performance for him with a TES under 100, but with a 12 point lead and his program components it’s still going to be tough to beat him.

Boyang Jin, CHN: 104.99 TES + 76.14 PCS = 181.13 Total: 270.99

  • Quad lutz step out
  • Quad salchow, perhaps a tad two footed on the landing
  • Triple axel + half loop + triple toe
  • Quad toe, chest down and he hits a weird patch and comes to a complete stop
  • Quad toe + double toe
  • Triple lutz + triple toe
  • Triple axel
  • Triple flip a little tight on the landing
  • Despite all the jump problems I did see more of an attempt for him to commit to the program and the choreography

Mikhail Kolyada, RUS: 93.67 TES + 84.64 PCS = 178.31 Total: 267.97

  • Nice quad toe
  • Triple axel a little down on his landing side but manages to not put the hand down
  • Nice triple axel + triple toe
  • Triple lutz so smooth
  • Triple loop
  • Triple lutz + double toe + double loop with tons of spring on the final jump
  • Triple loop + double axel sequence
  • Double axel
  • His jumps are so spot on and effortless but his skating is still a bit juniorish in the performance quality and I think that this Nightmare Before Christmas works for him in playing to his abilities but also helps solidify that junior feel

Patrick Chan, CAN: 79.31 TES + 92.60 PCS = 171.91 Total: 266.75

  • Triple toe (intended quad)
  • Triple axel a little scratchy on the landing but hangs on
  • Quad toe + double toe and hits the boards
  • Popped his axel into a single
  • Triple lutz slight hesitation + double toe + double loop
  • Triple loop forward on the toe pick on the landing
  • Triple flip
  • Doubled flip
  • With all the mistakes he made, the performance quality just wasn’t there and this really isn’t the performance that he is capable of; not only did he have some big mistakes like popping an axel, but he had lots of little jump errors that will effect his GOE and PCS marks too.

Adam Rippon, USA: 93.08 TES + 85.64 PCS = 178.72  Total: 264.44

  • Stood up on the quad lutz!
  • Triple axel + double toe
  • Triple Rippon lutz–he has such a gorgeous landing position with a full arabesque
  • Triple axel
  • Triple flip + triple toe
  • Triple loop
  • Triple ‘Tano lutz + double toe + double loop
  • Now he’s really letting lose and really playing to the crowd and letting the performance shine through; which has always been his strength
  • Triple salchow
  • Standing ovation
  • That was the best program of his career.  This is a moment he has been waiting for for so long and he has had two great back to back performances, skating clean at US Nationals and now at Worlds.

Shoma Uno, JPN: 87.93 TES + 86.58 PCS -1.00 = 173.51 Total: 264.25

  • Quad toe a little down on his landing side and turned out of it
  • Double axel + half loop + triple flip
  • Triple lutz
  • Triple loop
  • Triple salchow
  • Tough fall on the quad toe and it looks like he got the wind knocked out of him a little bit
  • Great recovery with a solid triple axel
  • Triple axel + triple toe a little tight on the landing of the second jump
  • Nessun Dorma is such a great vehicle for his skating and the cantilever on the crescendo of the music is such a great highlight to end the program

Max Aaron, USA: 93.16 TES + 79.70 PCS = 172.86 Total: 254.14

  • Nice quad salchow + triple toe
  • Nice triple axel + double toe

  • Nice triple axel
  • Triple lutz + half loop + triple salchow
  • Double axel
  • Double axel stepped out on the landing
  • He needed to be perfect and that was about as close as he could get

Michal Brezina, CZE: 81.12 TES + 78.58 PCS -1.00 = 158.70 Total: 237.99

  • Quad salchow two footed the landing and fell–very hunched over on the entrance and just not enough speed
  • Triple flip + half loop + double salchow
  • Nice triple axel
  • Triple flip + triple toe
  • Good triple axel + double toe
  • Triple lutz
  • Triple loop
  • I think the biggest problem for him in the quads is that his chest is down so low in his take off–he can pull up to rotate on the triples but it’s too much to get his body up and try and get off four rotations
  • Double axel step out

Grant Hochstein, USA: 85.02 TES + 77.42 PCS = 162.44  Total: 237.25

  • Quad toe nails it!
  • Triple axel + double toe
  • Nice flow out of the triple lutz
  • I love the lunge into the camel spin; this program has so many rich details and great transitions
  • Triple axel a little off in the air and hand down
  • Triple lutz + half loop + triple salchow
  • Triple loop
  • Triple flip
  • This program builds so well and the placement of the elements and the music really gets the crowd involved
  • The best part of this whole program is the choreographic step sequence and it really sings when he has hit all the jumps; great spread eagle highlighted on the music
  • Standing ovation!
  • That is the best he’s skated that program and what a way to close out this breakthrough season for him

  • Quad toe
  • Triple axel + double toe

  • Triple loop
  • Triple Rippon lutz
  • Fall on a double axel
  • Triple Rippon flip + half loop + double salchow
  • Double Rippon lutz + double toe

Alexei Bychenko, ISR: 82.57 TES + 73.64 PCS = 156.21  Total: 226.07

  • Nice quad toe + double toe combination

  • Triple flip + double toe
  • Triple loop nicely timed with the music
  • Triple flip hangs on to the landing

Deniss Vasiljevs, LAT: 66.91 TES + 76.56 PCS = 143.47 Total: 224.54 

  • He had such a nice debut at Worlds after finishing just 8th at Junior Worlds; he left some points on the table and had some jump issues but he really committed to the performance and had the crowd with him the whole program.

Misha Ge, UZB: 72.12 TES + 73.98 PCS = 146.10  Total: 223.53

  • Triple axel
  • Triple axel + half loop + triple salchow–impressive combo, but has to fight for the landing on the third jump
  • Triple flip two footed the landing and then stepped out
  • Really nice change of foot and change of direction camel spin
  • This is such an understated program for him and I feel like it doesn’t really allow his personality and all of his best qualities to shine through
  • Triple loop
  • Triple lutz + triple toe
  • Triple lutz a little back on the heel on the landing
  • Double axel + double toe with one arm variation
  • Double axel

  • Feed froze

Brendan Kerry, AUS: 73.96 TES + 65.56 PCS = 139.52  Total: 210.56

Maxim Kovtun, RUS: 58.82 TES + 74.86 PCS -2.00 = 131.68 Total: 210.14

  • Huge quad toe off in the air again and has to step out
  • Popped quad
  • Triple axel a little forward on the toe pick on the landing
  • Popped that jump
  • Triple loop

  • Triple lutz with great height, a little off on the landing but manages to hang on to it
  • Triple loop a little down on his landing side but hangs on
  • Triple axel down on the landing again but holds on
  • He has really nice jump technique and great spring but there isn’t a lot of in between choreography and transitions and he mostly skates from jump to jump
  • Triple salchow
  • He does have great presence on the ice and really tries to perform to this music
  • Double axel + double axel sequence

Phillip Harris, GBR: 60.75 TES + 62.14 PCS -1.00 = 121.89 Total: 190.42

  • Double axel + triple toe–a little off in the air on the axel
  • Triple lutz hand down + half loop + triple salchow–impressive recovery
  • Triple axel landed almost in a sit position but hangs on to it
  • Double loop
  • He has great sit spin positions with fully stretched free legs and really nice speed
  • I’d like to see him work more on his choreography and transitions and really connecting to his music and the audience
  • Triple lutz crazy in the air but adds the double toe
  • Triple flip hand down
  • Triple loop fall
  • Double axel

Ivan Pavlov, UKR: 54.19 TES + 59.50 PCS = 113.69  Total: 178.89

  • He doubles his planned triple axel and was very tilted in the air
  • Triple axel hand down + double toe
  • Triple flip + triple toe
  • Double axel
  • He has nice spin positions and decent speed, but he has some trouble maintaining his centering
  • Three turns into a triple flip
  • Triple lutz + double toe–looked like it was an intended three jump combo but he did a turnout instead of attempting the final jump
  • Popped loop
  • Double salchow two footed the landing
  • He needs more power and speed and that will really help in getting these jumps off at the end of the program
  • He’s also lacking in performance quality and some of the finishing touches like using his arms and upper body to accentuate his movements

June Hyoung Lee, KOR: 44.13 TES + 62.70 PCS -2.00 = 104.83  Total: 174.88

  • Fall on his opening triple axel
  • Fall on a quad toe attempt
  • A bit of a step out on that triple
  • He has some speed and centering issues on his spins
  • Triple flip turnout + double toe + single loop
  • Triple flip
  • Triple loop
  • Double salchow just not enough height and step out
  • Popped axel
  • He’s just running out of gas in this program and doesn’t have the speed to get off the ice enough to rotate the jumps
