Champs Camp Quadmania

Champs Camp is going on right now at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. It's an event that the A and B envelope (basically, the top) U.S. skaters are invited to attend, which U.S. Figure Skating refers to as a "conference." This is also a great chance to show off new programs and jumps and get some feedback.

A lot of the news coming out of this year's Champs Camp seems to be focusing on the quad progress of some of the top male skaters.

This article from Universal Sports talks about how Brandon Mroz is hoping to land a quad flip in competitions (Twitter reports also have him attempting a quad loop), and how Adam Rippon is hoping to land the quad lutz. The video of Rippon's quad lutz has been around for a few months. I think in the long run, a quad (lutz!) would particularly help out Adam Rippon. He's a beautiful skater who really needs to beef up the technical side in order to compete with the best in the world.

An article on Richard Dornbush from earlier today on Icenetwork also mentioned his quad toe loop attempts - he's going to give it a shot in some summer competitions. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like Dornbush's quad is quite ready for primetime.

Still, Dornbush and his longtime coach, Tammy Gambill -- who has taught him since he first stepped on to the ice for a group lesson more than 13 years ago -- know a quad would help solidify the skater as a world medal threat.

"The quad is going okay," Gambill, who trains her skaters in Riverside, Calif., said. "He will hit some, miss some.
"Last year, I said he rented it but did not own it yet. At this point, he still doesn't own it yet. We are going to try it here at Champs Camp in the long and then try it again at Golden West [Competition, Aug. 31-Sept. 4]. If it goes well, he may do it at Skate America [Oct. 21-23] as well."

After his shocking free skate victory at the 2011 U.S. Nationals, I forget that Dornbush is still pretty young - turning 20 this weekend. Hopefully he can improve on that quad and get it into some major competitions this season.

U.S. men eyeing figure skating history
By Alexa Ainsworth, Universal Sports

There are two U.S. men who have their sights set on making history.

Brandon Mroz - quad flip.
Adam Rippon - quad Lutz.


Neither jump has been ratified in an ISU competition and when the Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series kicks off this fall, Mroz and Rippon want to be the first.

Rippon will have first go, competing at the second event Skate Canada. Two weeks later, Mroz will have his first chance at Grand Prix of Japan.

What a change from a couple season ago when quads were few and far between. Now, the men are not only going for the four-revolution jump, but entering no-man's land.

A few men have attempted the jumps in the past. Michael Weiss went for a quad Lutz and was nearly credited for landing it at the 1998 U.S. Championships, but it was two-footed (...and not an ISU competition).

Yevgeny Plushenko has also attempted a quad Lutz, but never landed one in an ISU event.

As recent as last season, 2010 world champion Daisuke Takahashi attempted a quad flip, but it was often landed on the wrong foot and severely under-rotated.

What do you think? Will 20-year-old Mroz and 21-year-old Rippon start the season by making history?

Here are Mroz's thoughts on the matter:
"This year is all about going for the record books. Mark my words. You'll see my name on there."

@EvgeniPlushenko I went to "Friends on Ice". Hanyu did 4T-3T, Kozuka did a quad. Daisuke showed new exotic SP and Lysacek skated Roxanne.

Артур Гачинский:
"Моя произвольная программа - о демоне"

07.09.2011

Вице-чемпион России и бронзовый призер чемпионата мира-2011 Артур Гачинский в среду в Москве в рамках открытых прокатов сборной России представил публике свою произвольную программу. После выступления фигурист поделился впечатлениями с корреспондентом "СЭ Интернет".

- Впечатления хорошие. Я уже много раз эту программу прокатывал, так что сегодня все было абсолютно нормально. Когда выступали перед специалистами в Новогорске, программы им понравились. Никаких грубых замечаний не было, - сказал Гачинский.

- Как вы опишете свою произвольную программу?
- Главная тема - о демоне. Это склейка музыки из фильмов "Граф Дракула", "Интервью с вампиром" и еще нескольких картин.

- Кому принадлежит эта "демоническая" идея?
- Это была идея Алексея Николаевича Мишина, Георгия Ковтуна и Стефана Ламбьеля. Сначала хотели катать "Дракулу", но граф Дракула - персонаж довольно сложный, и многим было бы непонятно. Поэтому и сделали такой несколько странный выбор.

- Пару слов о короткой программе.
- Это блюз с джазом. Как такового образа еще нет, окончательно пока не решено. Но в целом могу сказать, что это веселая, насыщенная программа.

- Какие впечатления оставила у вас работа со Стефаном Ламбьелем в качестве хореографа?
- Мне очень понравилось. У него много идей. И, конечно, классная пластика, движения. От совместной работы получал только удовольствие. Он мне очень помог в плане катания, исполнения дорожки шагов.

- Что значится в ваших ближайших планах?
- После прокатов останусь в Москве, выступлю на первом этапе Кубка России в Дмитрове, а потом отправлюсь на международные соревнования Japan Open в Японию. Этапы "Гран-при" у меня - Cup of China и Cup of Russia.

- В прошлом году вы сам для себя довольно высоко подняли планку, завоевав бронзу чемпионата мира. Какие цели ставите перед собой на предстоящий сезон?
- Моя цель - это стабильность, показывать хорошие программы и хорошее катание на всех соревнованиях. Ни о каких баллах и местах пока не думаем. (Мария НИКУЛАШКИНА)
