Looking like a young prince in his costume, Martinez, 17, wowed the crowd and left the TV announcers thrilled no end with his “stunning routine” while performing through the song entitled “Romeo and Juliet” of Arthur Fiedler. http://ph.sports.yahoo.com/news/martinez-impresses-crowd-in-olympic-men-s-free-skating-debut-162636929.html
Some ice skating technical experts may say that Christian needs to do quadruple jumps to get a medal – but general viewers can’t actually see any flaws in his routine.
