Skating a clean program is very important nowadays. Also, I need to be realistic with myself.

And yet, watching Chen skate, one could feel that his program still had a lot of potential. In a split second, while Lu and Mitrofanov were skating to the other side of the rink, a staff member jumped over the board onto the ice and threw the tile over. He jumped back again before they were back, thus avoiding a potentially dangerous fall by the skaters, especially since the tile was ice-white and would have been difficult to see.
