Hanyu tripled his quad toeloop and didn’t perform the second jump in his tripe-triple combination. The 19-year-old Japanese star hadn’t competed since the worlds in March — and it showed.

Did I just read that right? And where did you mention the fact that Hanyu and Yan collided on the ice prior to Hanyu's incredible, albeit disoriented, performance? I didn't see where you mentioned that Hanyu was a bloody mess after his performance, as he sat awaiting his scores, blood dripping from his face, or how Yan collapsed after colliding with Hanyu on the ice. Pretty cold analysis you gave of this, it showed that you didn't really watch the competition at all.
