Well, This Definitely Made My Day


With Kozuka's win, he's recorded the best score in the free skate this season (170.43), he goes to the Grand Prix Final as the number one qualifier, 15 points better in his two-competition total than the next highest skater (Patrick Chan), and I believe he was just five points off of Daisuke Takahashi's world-record free skate score from Four Continents a few seasons ago.

Congratulations, Takahiko!

Haha, made my day too! Little worried for Daisuke... but he'll put it out when it counts, or he'll just have to settle for silver. ;)

But man... what a freeskate and score for Takahiko! If this doesn't give him confidence, what will?

He scored better than both Evan Lysacek and Evgeny Plushenko in their free skates at the Olympics. Wow. And yes, it shall definitely be the highlight of my day as well. His face was SO funny!!

Exceptional performance and score, though the quad was not perfect.
You were mentioning Takahashi's record 175,84 but I would like to mention Abbott's that I prefer and that got him 175,81 at last year's Nats.
