2017 JGP Croatia Men’s Preview

Several men are competing for a spot in the Grand Prix Final at this event.  The men’s event is a little easier to make assumptions for the Final, as most of the early medal winners have a second assignment so the pairings are a little more set in stone.  However, there is still time for the federations to move their entries around to give their competitors a better chance at qualifying in a weaker field.  This is especially true for Poland where 5 medal winners (potentially 6, depending on how Shimada does here) will compete, whereas only 2 medal winners are currently on the roster for the final event in Italy.

Alexei Krasnozhon took home the gold medal from JGP Australia.  His short program has a triple flip + triple loop in the bonus and he earned positive GOEs on all of his elements, except for the triple axel.  He attempted a quad loop in his free skate, but he fell and it was under-rotated.  He also fell on a triple lutz later in the program.  Otherwise he landed six clean triples with five jumps in the bonus and earned Level 4 for all of his spins.  He has the 3rd best short program, 5th best free skate, and 2nd best total scores. He needs a gold or silver medal to guarantee a spot in the Final while a bronze medal would keep him in contention.

Mitsuki Sumoto won the gold medal at JGP Latvia.  He lost a lot of ground in his short program when his combination jump was ruled invalid and earned a negative GOE, earning him only 3.73 points for an element which would normally earn over 10.  He had a solid high scoring free skate, despite not attempting a quad.  On paper the program is not particularly impressive on the technical side.  Only five jumps are in the bonus, there are no quads, and there are two double axels.  However, he skated it mostly clean with only two minor negative GOEs.  Skating it clean will be enough to get him on the podium as others are finding their feet and trying to get consistent quads, however, to be in contention at Junior Worlds, men will likely need to be in the 215 or higher range, and he won’t reach that with this program.  He has the 2nd best free skate and 5th best total scores.  He needs a gold or silver medal to qualify for the Final, while bronze would keep in him the running.

Makar Ignatov earned the bronze medal at JGP Latvia.  His short program at that event was a bit of a mess, earning no credit for one of his spins and not completing a triple + triple as his combination jump.  He finished behind Sumoto in the free skate, despite having a quad jump.  He stood up on his quad toe and fully rotated it, but had slightly negative GOEs.  He had several strong elements but started to lose steam toward the end of the program.  He only has four jumping passes in the bonus, so he really needs to make them count, however, they were the weakest part of the whole program.  On those four jumps, he had two under-rotation calls and earned negative or neutral GOEs on all of them.  As a result, his GOEs ended up pulling his technical score below the base value for the program.  He also only earned Level 2 for one of his spins and Level 3 for the two others.  He has the quad and now he needs to focus on a more well balanced program.   He has the 7th best free skate and 6th best total scores.  A gold medal would earn him a trip to the Junior Grand Prix Final.

Joseph Phan placed 4th at JGP Australia.  He had a fairly strong shot program with a triple flip + triple toe combination but he fell on the triple axel.  His biggest issue on the technical side is that he has no jumps in the second half, giving up 10% on at least one jumping pass, if not two or three.  He did earn an impressive Level 4 on all of his spins and the step sequence.  He earned positive GOEs on all the elements except the triple axel.  Unfortunately, the free skate was not a strong moment for him, and he didn’t even finish in the top 6 for that segment.  He has the 5th best short program score.  He needs a gold medal to stay in the hunt for the Final.

Basar Oktar finished 4th at JGP Austria.  His combination jump in the short program is a triple flip + triple toe and only his solo lutz is in the bonus.  He earned positive GOEs on every element except for his opening triple axel.  The biggest area he needs to upgrade are his spins and steps, as he received Level 3 on two of his spins and only a Level 2 on the step sequence.  He had two falls in his free skate, including one on the triple axel.  He does have a backloaded free skate with 6 jumping passes in the bonus, but only three jumps in the program earned a positive GOE.  The triple axel still seems to be a work in progress for him and he’ll need it more consistent if he wants to contend for a medal at these events.  He needs a gold medal to keep himself in the conversation for the Final.

Koshiro Shimada took home a medal last season from France but finished just off the podium at his second event.  However, he did set personal best scores in all segments of competition at that event and scored over 200 points.  His scores there would put him in the top 5 for this season, giving him a great shot at the medal stand if he can replicate that effort.  If he can medal here, he has a chance to qualify for the Final next week in Poland.

2017 JGP Australia Men’s Preview

Junior Grand Prix events outside of Europe tend to have smaller fields, and this one is no exception.  Only 16 men from 11 countries are competing at this event.  The junior level has become increasingly more and more competitive, with top junior men now expected to execute not only consistent triple axels but multiple quadruple jumps.  The quad is not allowed in the short program, so scores may seem much closer after that segment.  The required solo jump for juniors this year is a lutz which also can be a great divider.  Since the lutz is one of the more difficult jumps, some competitors may not be able to do the triple and will have to settle for a double, leaving points on the table.

Alexei Krasnozhon is the highest ranked competitor returning from last season.  He finished 8th at Junior Worlds where he set a new personal best short program, but he was still over 30 points from the podium.  This will be his third year on the JGP circuit, but he had his best season last year, taking home a gold and a silver medal and qualifying for his first Final, where he placed 5th.  His personal best score was set at JGP Czech Republic last season, but he was never quite able to replicate it.  The rest of the season he scored between 208 and 211, over 10 points less than his personal best.

Roman Savosin is going into his second season on the Junior Grand Prix circuit.  He won a gold and bronze medal and qualified for the Final, where he finished 4th.  He finished just behind Krasnozhon at one event, and just ahead of him at another.  His personal best is just a shade below Krasnozhon’s, however, his was set at the senior level, where there is an extra choreographic step sequence.  In junior level competition, he never scored above a 212 last season, and even scored below the 200 point mark once.  He finished a distant 8th at Russian nationals and was not named to the Junior Worlds team.

Joseph Phan skated his first Junior Grand Prix season last year, finishing 5th and 6th.  He set a personal best of 197 at JGP Slovenia.

Daniel Grassl also is fresh off his first year on the JGP circuit with two 7th place finishes.  He showed improvement between his two events, and ended with a personal best 177.  Eric Sjoberg only competed in one JGP event last season, but he set a 177 in his first time out.

Gold: Alexei Krasnozhon

2016 JGP Slovenia Men’s Preview

We’re nearing the end of the Junior Grand Prix season and several skaters are looking to qualify for the Final at this event.  Roman Savosin has put himself in a good position to qualify for the Final with a total score of 26 but he’ll have to wait for the outcome of the final three events.

Dmitri Aliev won gold earlier this season at the JGP Czech Republic.  He needs a gold or silver medal to guarantee his spot in the Final while a bronze would give him a good chance of qualifying.  He landed two quads in his free skate, one in combination (although it was under-rotated).  He scored a new personal best total score at that event, despite not setting new short program or free skate scores.  He has the 3rd best short program, 2nd best free skate and 2nd best total scores of the season.

Alexei Krasnozhon and Ilia Skirda both won silver at their first event.  They both need a gold medal to guarantee a spot in the Final.  A silver would likely give them a strong chance but there are still a large number of men in the running at the last two events.  Krasnozhon has the 4th best short program, 4th best free skate and 5th best total scores.  Krasnozhon won the silver behind Aliev at JGP Czech Republic, but he was 9 points behind.  He fell on his quad loop in the free skate at that event, but set new personal bests in all segments of the competition.  Skirda medaled at this first ever international event but he benefited from a weaker field as he did not score over 200 points and does not rank in the top 10 for scores this season.

Kazuki Tomono, Ivan Pavlov, and Kevin Aymoz all placed 4th in their first event.  Realistically they must take home a gold or silver medal to keep themselves in the running.  Tomono has the 6th best free skate and 7th best total scores.  He is also one of only four men in this event to score over 200 points.

Joseph Phan placed 6th in his first event at Czech Republic, but he scored less than a point less than Skirda.  While he has no shot at qualifying for the Final, he is a medal threat at this event.

 

My podium predictions:

Gold: Dmitri Aliev

Silver: Alexei Krasnozhon

Bronze: Kazuki Tomono
