    Ladies LP

    Sorry about the glitch:

    Sebestyen, Otonal

    3S2T2R
    1L
    1F
    FCSp, to donut
    SpSt
    3F
    CUSp, coe
    3L df, hasn't opened up
    3T2T
    1A
    CoSp
    SlSt
    CCoSp

    Rather boring program overall, not much of transitions or musical expression.

    Suguri, Song of Spirits

    3L2T
    3F? might be 2
    T popped
    CCoSp cam, coe, sit, layback // sit, twS, Y
    3L
    3F2T
    SpSt, coe, bi hB, poorly held and shaky, shaky
    2A, out of spiral
    FSSp, good jump, rather poor position in spin
    2S
    FCSp, travelling and she did not manage to caught her blade for the donut
    SlSt, good
    CCoSp

    Lovely program with "cute" touches in places, I think it suits her well, but I just don't "get" her skating, for me it's decent, but not memorable.

    Meier, Pride and Prejudice

    3L2T2R
    3F2T
    3F
    CCoSp, cam, sit, twU // twS, U coe
    CUSp, back to forw, coe, really the same spin as Sebestyen
    2L
    SpSt
    2A
    3S
    FSSp, coe, twS, hands behind
    SlSt, nice flow
    2T step out 2T
    CoSp

    finished slightly behind the music. Same style as Suguri, but IMHO much better done or probably it just suits her well. Strangely I haven't found all the 'cute' touches in her LP as annoynying as I had found them at CoR. Lovely, sweet, but won't cut against the top competitors...

    Kim, The Lark Ascending

    3F3T
    2A out of ina bauer
    LSp to B.
    3L
    CSp, nice and original changes of position
    SlSt, weird pattern more like serpentine along the long axis
    3L2T2R, no flow out
    FSSp, coe, twS
    2A, step out
    3S2T out of spiral
    SpSt, coe to hB, bi hB, fan directly to
    2A
    CCoSp

    Very well done. This style suits her very well and she just do all the elements for effortlessly... audience loved her too.

    Ando, Violin Concerto

    1L
    3S
    1F
    FSSp, coe, twS
    SpSt, coe, fan, bi hB
    3L, saved
    1T
    1F
    2A
    CoSp, to Y
    SlSt, nice flow
    CCoSp, cam, lfS, L // sit, twU, Y
    LSp, to b2h to B

    Actually, despite all the popped jump i liked this performance more than I liked the one in Paris. More accurate, with better attention to the music, but she was clearly upset. People whistled on her score, even though there were clear "oohs" during the skate, so the people must have understand that she made mistakes.

    Asada, [Czardas

    3A, fall possibly ur
    2A3T
    3F
    CiSt, very nice character
    CCoSp, incl. forw attitude
    2A
    3L fall
    SpSt fan, coe hB, nice flow
    3F
    CoSp
    3L
    LSp
    FSSp

    Compared to downright perfect SP this choreography is a letdown, it does nothing to enhance the impression. Really a pity. OTOH, since I like Kim more overall the results suits me just fine.

    What a dreadful skate for Miki. There must be something wrong - but what?

    Congrats to Yu Na. She earned this one. What a great first season in the ladies!

    ETA: Just noticed Mao fell TWICE. Aww... but it 's hard to feel sorry for her with that huge talent. She has a challenge and I'm sure she will enjoy working to meet it.

    Thanks so much for the pbp, Anna!
