New figure skating fan here! Who all do I watch out for the Men's SP? I can't watch all of them skate, i have no time (ಥ~ಥ)
I would recommend the following skaters:
All of these skaters have placed pretty highly at Worlds and other international events in the past couple years. Incidentally, this is PRETTY MUCH just the last couple groups. The only one I didn’t list was Alexei Bychenko of Israel. He could have a shot of placing high (he’s the 2016 European silver medalist) though, so we’ll see.
Basically I’d say if you’re pressed for time just watch the last two groups? If you just go through youtube videos and don’t stay around for all the kiss and cry stuff/waiting for scores, you should be able to breeze through them relatively quickly! SPs are less than three minutes long, after all.
FINALLY THE MAPPA YOI calendar. Team St. Petersburg, VICTOR BESIDE YUURI, SO SERIOUS AND READY TO KICK SOME ASS.
BECAUSE NOW HE’LL WIN GOLD AND GET MARRIED, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.
EVERYONE’S DRESSED UP. Look at that little makkachin puppy on Victor’s lap, and the katsudon bowl. ALSO A NEARLY NAKED CHRIS… AND THE CUTE TRIO IN THE FAR RIGHT CORNER, MINAMI IT’S FINALLY HERE.
LOOK AT VICTOR IN THE BACKGROUND, SO PROUD AND CHEERING FOR HIS BEAUTIFUL HUSBAND.
THE “Welcome to the Madness” scene! GOD LOOK AT YURIO’S SMOKY EYES, NEED THAT MAKEUP, VICTOR SINGING HIS HEART OUT ON STAGE, BOTH MILA, SARA AND EMIL AND MICKEY PAIR DANCING.
And look at the back, IT SAYS “HASETSU EXHIBITION, ONSEN ON ICE”. MEANING THEY ALL TRAVEL TO JAPAN AND AND CREATED THEIR OWN PROGRAM TO SHOW.
AT THE END WE HAVE ALL OUR SKATERS IN A FINAL POSE, I’M DYING HERE. BECAUSE PRECIOUS VICTOR IS WEARING A FLOWER CROWN MATCHING YUURI’S OWN POCKET BOUQUET. CHRIS AND PHICHIT ARE SIDE BY SIDE. VICTOR HANGING OFF HIS BEST FRIEND AND HUSBAND. ALSO YURIO’S MAKE UP, AND OTABEK WITH HIS ARM AROUND THE SMALLER BOY. JJ WITH HIS LEATHER JACKET, JUST PERFECT.
