well that is the thing, I would probably score him pretty well. I haven't seen every run in its entirety, so I can't say he should have placed. Just seems like he get penalized for an intangible of fluidity?
regarding the JOI results, watch how he sets his triple, and then watch Bobby Brown. not that i have any right to tell pros how to do triples, but Henshaw seems to throw his triple too early and miss the pop. Bobby nails the pop and that's why his triple looks so sick.
Keep in mind guys that this is a dude that had ACL surgery not even 10 months ago.
He's obviously not going to be sending stuff to the bottom of the landings, which is unfortunate for him as yeh it doesn't exactly help his judging situation, but man it's just crazy how well he's skiing post opp, as far as I know no one in the history of skiing has ever made a come back that strong from ACL surgery.
Keep it up Russ! you're still one of the best in the world WITH a handicap haha
Russ Henshaw has some of the smoothest fucking landings I have ever seen, he goes big, holds onto his grabs for forever, and is ALWAYS robbed with the judging. I don't know what it is, maybe it's his very "textbook", "technical" style, but the judges either hate him, or just aren't paying attention. Everything he does is perfect, sure it's not the most creative, steezed out style ever, but (let's be honest here) that's not what judges are really looking for in a comp. Regardless, everything he does looks effortless. I don't get how he always gets the shaft at every comp.
Nah just rewatched reasons and EDIAS to be sure. The both way dub tens were in reasons and kangs in EDIAS. Andreas was way ahead of all others for sure, just always wondered why he didn't bring the dubs to the slopegame earlier when he was the only one doing both ways
Russ doesn't take jumps deep and his rail skills are pretty marginal for a big shot slope skier. I got nothing against him though- he seems like a good guy with his head in the right place. I hope he wins some big events next season.
