FCSp, turnout, donut
SpSt, back coe B, fan, low, not held
CCoSp back to forw, cam, sit, B shaky, not held
LSp backward to sideward, b2h, B, not held
Rather nice program, with good posture and in character hand gestures
Ievleva, blues, in yellow
3F or T, not sure
LSp, b2h, she is the first ever Russian skater to even attempt the
proper attitude position for the free leg
2A out of twizzle
CCoSp, cam, sit good and low, b2h,// Y good, but not held
SpSt, coe Y
Complete makeover. She escaped Tchaikovskaya's camp for Gromova and it
suited her well. Granted, the program was easy (esp. if it was indeed
a toe, not a flip), but she skated it very well, with nice attack and
Volchkova, Tosca, in black and red
3L2T, very good
3F step out
FSSp, landed on both feet did not complete the element
SpSt, coe hB, bi good, towards
Slow, uninspired. She had an excellent start, but then the things just
Leonova, Jewish folk in cyan with gold trimming
SpSt, fan, coe nB, bi bB, nice flow
FCSp, turnout, donut
CiSt, excellent character
LSp, side, back, b2h, B, fast
There must have been a 2A somewhere. Excellent character throughout,
but not enough power. Good "playful" presentation.
Tertychnaya, in green, La Strada?
3F fall, possibly ur
LSp, side, b2h, B
SpSt, coe, good positions, but slow
CiSt, nice, good use of upperbody
CCoSp, finished behind the music
She looks a lot like Slutskaya these days (she is also coached by
Gromova). Nice performance, but she did not seem to "get" her music.
I've seen her skating much better.
FSSp, coe, twS
LSp, side to back
SpSt, back coe Y, forw Y, bo classical
CCoSp, fellout of coe on the upright spin in the end
Good speed, but no expression, unrefined.
3L2T, tight landing
A, opened in the air, nasty fall
SpSt, coe, bi hB, fan, good speed and positions\
CCoSp, cam, sit, B, // sit, Y
CiSt, excellent flow
Good performance overall, but really weak jumps.
Petushkova, Tosca in pink
SpSt, coe, bi hand held
2A out of spiral
There must have been a layback and step sequnece somewhere. She has
improved a lot since last year, but she is still very unrefined. It
really amazes me how otherwise good skater can have absolutely no idea
about the lines... If you wonder about low PCS scores, think of Mira
2R step out
SpSt, coe, slow, low positions
It was really weak and unispired
3S2T, posss. ur.
FSSp, forward, good position
SpSt, coe back hB
Good positions in spins, soft hands, but very weak overall.
3R ur 2R fall
FCCpS, turnover, donut\
LSp, b2h B
Well, at least she tried to sell it, however bad it was jumpwise
Naidenova, MidEastern (really, 3 programs in a row is too much)
3F2T, poss ur
CCoSp, cam, sit, b2h // cam, sit
FCSp, donut, shaky
LSP, b2h, good lay back
No expression, no attack, no power
SpSt, coe hB, fan
A popped to waltz jump
LSp to B
Excellent speed, attack, power and presentation. Shame about jumps,but
her PCS should have been higher.
A million thanks once again. Did Biktagirova pull out because of injury?
Nobody know, she and Smekhnova sort of "disappeared" from the starting orders and no one knows why. I try to find out tomorrow.
all your hard work is much appreciated.
thanks very much! Looks like Russian ladies' discipline is in real trouble. Only one or two skaters even tried the most common sp jump layout of 3lutz(orflip)2toe, 3flip(3lutz) and 2A.
When the so-called future star - Martynova was not able to land one clean jump in sp, you know how dismal the event was.
The marks are ridiculously high for what the ladies did.
Remember, it's a NATIONALS and the scores really can't be taken seriously.
But isn't this Cop supposed to be OBJECTIVE? Looks like those PCS marks are just like placeholders. So really, in the end makes no difference whether cop or 6.0 is used. I guess, though, that cop offers more feedback to the skaters, hence why they like it...?
Many thanks for the reports, Anna!
