Obscure Asian skater No.1
Triple Lutz - not bad at all!
Triple Toe - Double Toe - clean as a whistle
Triple Loop - Double Axel Sequence - clean
Layback - wait, an American layback, beautiful!
Spiral sequence - two good positions, one ugly one
Double Salchow - Double Toeloop - clean, but probably not what she was looking for
Triple Toeloop - good
Double Axel - very nice
nice moves in the field
Sitspin - aborted, lost balance but no fall
Footwork - slow, generic
Triple Salchow - girl got guts
Combination spin - she should do 3 layback spins each program, that's her best
Program was bland, tingly slow violin music. But it was well done, she stayed on her feet. And what I saw was rotated.

Triple Flip - saved it
Triple Lutz - Double Toe - clean
Triple Toe - clean, great speed in and out
Combination spin - decent
Spiral Sequence - okay, good flexibility
Double Axel - both hands down
Double Toeloop - Double Toeloop - clean
Double Axel - step out
Flying sitspin - alright
Footwork - yawn
Last spin - halfway decent
She looks awfully concentrated and always somehow unhappy. The three opening jumping passes were great, she lost steam afterwards. The entire French team is now sitting on the bench, Joubert with two girls on his Lap. They are having fun.
Nice speed over the ice.
Triple Lutz - three turn
Double Axel - Triple Toeloop - looked good
Triple Loop - good
Triple Salchow - fall-out
Camel spin - fast, slightly wobbly
