Norbert was a skater that zoomed to the top in one year, landing 2nd at Worlds, and then right back down to 9th the next year, never really impacting the men's event again. I always delight in unusual and unique skaters, and his bizarre style brought him a lot of attention, and a silver medal here. However, I think he was able to move ahead of the Canadian Brian Pockar and the Frenchman John Cristoff Simond, on the strength of his triple flip and lutz, rather than the artistry. Judges tend to reward skaters based on tangible achievements, rather than subjective artistic elements.....unfortunately!
