MATE, NICK NADEAU. AND HERE COMES ROMAN SADOVSKY. STRUGGLED WITH CONSISTENCY. THE VAUGHAN, ONTARIO, RICHARD HILL SKATER. HIGH FLIER AS WELL. THREE QUADS PLANNED IN THE PROGRAM.>>Tracy: JUST 19 YEARS OF AGE. TALL, LONG LINES. GOOD POWER ACROSS THE ICE. OPENING WITH A QUAD SALCHOW. VERY NICE.>>Rod: BACK TO BACK.>>Tracy: HE’S GOT THREE QUADS PLANNED IN ALL. THE NEXT ONE, A QUAD TOE. [Applause]>>Tracy: A LITTLE TURNOUT ON THE LANDING. SUPER AMBITIOUS OPENING. NOW TRIPLE AXEL COMBINATION. JUST GOT OFF THE HEEL ON THE AXEL. (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>ROMAN HAD A TERRIFIC START. A BRONZE MEDAL. LOOK AT THE SPEED NOW. HE’S BUILDING INTO HIS QUAD SALCHOW.>>Rod: HE NEEDS THIS.>>Tracy: YES, IT WAS BETTER THAN THE FIRST. [Applause]>>Rod: AN AXEL COMING UP RIGHT HERE.>>Tracy: OH. I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO NAIL THAT. BODY WAS A LITTLE OUT OF THE CIRCLE AND WHEN YOU’RE AS TALL AS ROMAN IS, IT IS VERY DIFFICULT IF YOU GET SLIGHTLY OFF. (♪♪♪) [Applause]>>Rod: UNRAVELING HERE. HANGING ON. [Applause] (♪♪♪)>>Tracy: LOOK AT THIS FINAL SPIN. THE SPEED OF THE ROTATION, THE LONG, ELEGANT LINES, ABSOLUTELY SUPERB. HE HAS THOSE MOMENTS, ROD.>>Rod: HE’S GOT THE QUADS.>>Tracy: MOMENTS OF BILLANCE. THE AXEL HAS ELUDED HIM TONIGHT AND RAN OUT OF SPEED AT THE END, BUT THE FALLS CAN REALLY TAKE THE WIND OUT OF YOUR SAILS.>>IT WASN’T TOO LONG AGO HE WAS THE SIZE OF THIS GUY, GOGOLEV. STILL AHEAD. THE YOUNGSTER. NAM NGUYEN, A YOUNG GUN TOO, TRYING TO RECLAIM A TITLE AND KEEGAN MESSING, GOOD BUDDIES. DRAMA AT T Whoooo. Planning a vacation… shouldn’t be hard work! TripAdvisor searches

STEPHEN GOGOLEV IN THE WINGS. HE COULD BECOME THE YOUNGEST MAN EVER.>>Tracy: HAVE A LOOK AT HIS QUAD SALCHOW. THAT WAS SLIGHTLY UNDERROTATED, LOSING SOME MARKS FOR THE TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY AND THE QUALITY OF THAT JUMP. LOOK AT HIS STEP SEQUENCES THOUGH. BEAUTIFUL PRESENCE, LONG LINES, WEAVING.>>Rod: HE DID VALLEYED N JOSEPH PHAN AND AGAIN QUALITY WILL BE JUDGED.>>Tracy: SECOND QUAD SALCHOW INTO A HALF TRIPLE SALCHOW AND IT’S REALLY ASSESSING. THE JUDGES WILL BE ASSESSING THE LANDING OF HIS JUMPS TO SEE IF THEY WERE FULLY ROTATED BEFORE HE TOUCHED THE ICE. AND HE’S HAD SOME DIFFICULTY THIS YEAR IN COMPETITION WITH THE ROTATIONS ON HIS JUMPS. AND SO THE LITTLE MISTAKES ADD UP AND IT’S A NUMBER OF HIS JUMPS ARE UNDER REVIEW HERE AND BOTH OF THE QUAD SALS WERE DEEMED UNDERROTATED. THERE IS THE SEVEN-TIME CHAMPION, THE MAN WHO TOOK THE QUAD TO AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT LEVEL, ELVIS STOJKO, ATHLETE AMBASSADOR HERE. I’M SURE HE’S WORKED WITH ROMAN IN THE PAST AND WATCHED HIM. ROMAN, BY THE WAY, IS A CREATIVE GUY. HE HAS HIS OWN YouTube CHANNEL AND A TECHIE. THE ROMSKY CHANNEL, A YOUNG MAN WITH A GREAT PERSONALITY. HE NEEDS 147.97 TO LEAD.>>Tracy: ESPECIALLY WITH SOME OF THE JUMP REVIEWS THEY HAVE A LOOK AT, BECAUSE IT CAN HAPPEN SO QUICKLY, BUT IF YOU FINISH THE ROTATION ON THE ICE, YOU DON’T GET THE FULL CREDIT FOR THE QUAD. CONRAD ORZEL STOLE THE SHOW IN THE SHORT PROGRAM.>>Rod: I THINK HE MESSED EVERYTHING UP. OH, WAY LOW. HE’S THIRD IN THE FREE. 218.71, THIRD OVERALL. AND LIKELY NOT IN
