Yes!!! Lenko/Islam moved up to 2nd place overall! And Ralph/Hill moved up to 5th, and 3rd in the OD. Wow. I mean, they're just out of novice. That's awsome. Great news for Canada!
ladies short now!
1. Miruku MATSUSHITA, JPN
3S+2T, 2Lo, 2A, clean program, but flexibility is lacking, some spin position is suspicious. 40.95 points.
2. Chloe DEPOUILLY FRA, 16 yo.
3S+2T, 2A fall, 2Lo. so, so. 33.80 points.
3. Charissa TANSOMBOON, THA
2A, 2lo, 2f+2t, good spin, good posture and good flow, very graceful. I like her the most so far, too bad her jumps are less difficult. 34.77 points
4. Charlotte BELAIR CAN
3lutz fall, 3lo, 2A. steps slow, 39 points.
5. Sigrid YOUNG TPE
2A, 3s fall, underrottaed maybe, 2lo, nice flow, nice speed, good basics, beautiful performance. Too bad jumps are weak. Nancy loves it.

Netnuts, thanks for the play-by-play.
group 2 practice.
Mirai nailed 2A, 3lo, popped a lutz jump. Looks like her consistency is a question mark with her growth spurt over the past few months.
3lutz+2t, 3lo, a little too foot, 2A. Excellent performance. 55.36 points.

Mirai did do a great job. I think she is off to a great start. Her layback is the best in the world. Her speed in that spin reminds me of Lucinda Ruh.
As far as the warm-up goes, her single Lutz looked rather intentional to me. A lot of times a skater will perform a single first in order to work out timing, etc.
Excellent 2A from Ina Bauer! She's on a pace to break 150.
I loved Alexe Gilles' program despite the fall. She seems musical and her combination was good. Can't wait to see more of her.
Does anybody know what is the required throw and sbs jump in pairs short?
Any other updates for the ladies short? Any rankings?
