    Ladies Short Program

    Skaters are shown in skate order and I’m typing this as they skate (with no replay to check things) so they might be some missed items and/or mistakes, but singles is so much easier than pairs so I should do better than I did with the pairs.

    Yu-Na Kim - black velvet with red accents & underskirt - music - Tango de Roxanne (and it’s nice to see Brian Orser at the boards for her) some chor to start into a very easy 3f3t / spirals as music becomes darker / butterfly back sit with twist & pancake is fast & centred / some chor into huge 3z beautiful air pos / diag ftwrk has the moves chor right to the music and she has the attitude for it / beautiful layback that speed up into an easy transition to beillman / ina right into 2a / combo spin to end is great - what a start to the competition !!! / her coach with Brian is just beaming / if there was anything to pick at it’s that I wish her sit spin pos was lower / T 37.84 C 24.84 tot 62.68 new PB by about 2 points

    binshu xu/mira leung

    binshu xu was definitley much better than Mira leung, very clean program. Solid jumping technique, faster spinner, better spirals with much better posture, also better speed.

    But somehow Mira leung scored a magic personal best of 52 points, but binshu xu only got 48 points? Even Joannie botched one jump, it's still hard to believe Mira leung was only 3 points behind her? And Mira Leung's PCS magically improved by 3 points compared to Skate America?

    Yu-Nam's PCS is also quite low. This system sucks.
