I’m so honoured to witness such advancements in sport, artistically and athletically.

It’s astounding to see the list of all those involved in even attempting such risky manoeuvrers. I’m so thankful for all of them and their coaching teams.

This 2016 - 2017 season, history has been made. All 4 revolution jumps have been landed in competition. (Since a quad Axel = 4.5 technically.)

Quad Toe-Loop

Kurt Browning of Canada was the first man to land a quad in competition.

He landed the quad toe at the 1988 Worlds. Making it the first quad to be ratified.

(I really know I’m obsessed with this sport because I went on and watched the top 5 programmes of that competition).


Quad Salchow

Timothy Goebel 1998 Junior Grand Prix Finals - of the United States became the first man to successfully land a quadruple Salchow, and in particularly, a quad Salchow in combination.


Quad Lutz

Brandon Mroz landed the first successful quad Lutz in a sanctioned competition. On November 12, he landed a ratified quad Lutz at the NHK Trophy, becoming the first skater to land successfully a quad Lutz in international competition.


Quad Flip

Shoma Uno became the first skater to ever land a quadruple Flip at an international competition. In April 2016, ratified at the Team Challenge Cup,

Quad Loop

Yuzuru Hanyu becomes the first skater in history to successfully land a quadruple Loop (also known as the “Rittberger” in Europe) in competition, at the 2016 CS Autumn Classic International.

Hello my dear? I've just started reading Gaston Leroux's novel for the first time and I am really enjoying this Phantom. Ramin has been my favourite Phantom for a very long time, I have a list with Phantoms I like, but he definitely was on the top. But now after seeing his performance again (rewatched some footage) I wonder what other phans think. So who's phantom do you think is the truest to Gaston Leroux's novel. Unfortunately I can't think of anyone myself.

Oh, that’s cool! There aren’t necessarily an ALW stage Phantom embodying Leroux!Phantom to the full. But there are definitely Phantoms who has some of that unpolished feel, and an interesting contrast in their voice which embodies both the angelic quality and the roughness described in Leroux:

  • Marcus Lovett (in his West End run! He had highlighed the whole Leroux novel to add details from it into the performance, and he was particularly concerned with how the Phantom had probably had studied male opera singers + Raoul in detail to try and get a grasp of how a man should behave. So he deliberately echoed Raoul and Piangi for some scenes)
  • Ethan Freeman (he actually does some details described in the book, like kissing the hem of Christine’s dress)
  • Peter Karrie (especially his more manneristic tendencies)
  • Anthony Crivello (also very manneristic, and very rough)
  • Mikael Samuelson (the way he just totally did his own thing and owned the stage gives me vibes of the grandeur of Leroux!Phantom)
  • Flemming Enevold (ditto)
  • Ernst Dieter Suttheimer
  • Alexander Goebel
  • Scott Davies

Nothing could have prepared you for the months that followed.

Word of your break up with Jiyong spread quickly through YG and there was an undeniable tension in the building every second that you were in it. You would walk by staff members, acknowledging some, but keeping your sight straight forward for the most part. It was next to impossible to avoid the whispers and stares, but you knew it was all just part of the process.

How long was this process supposed to last again…?
