Not to drag on about Nobunari Oda's disastrous short program from earlier today, but when has someone that was considered not only a medal favorite but a possible gold medal challenger not even qualified for the free skate? When Lu Chen didn't qualify for the free skate at the 1997 World Championships, she had a lot of different issues going on in the season that led up to the event. Oda, on the other hand, had a good warm-up just minutes before his performance and was on fire early in the season throughout the Grand Prix. Is this possibly the biggest meltdown by a top competitor EVER? He ended in 28th place.
