is it her?
is it her?
I think it's a little early for the "next" Yu-na Kim
That was a nice program though. Clean and good height and rotation on her jumps. She has a very nice lutz. She still has some work with speed, edges and transitions but definitely potential.
Christina is a nice skater, but she's been very inconsistent in the past and her basics have to be worked on A LOT. I think she can also work on her expression - I think she was a bit dull.
is she the skater who came in 3rd at junior nationals last year. and is 16. and if not why is some post stating 13 and not 15.
i was just wondering because if she is the same skater she was 15 at last years junior nationals which would make her 16 this year.
Aside from her age, she is a lovely skater and I think she has qualities of both Yu Na Kim and Mirai Nagasu. Though she does need to work on her speed, I am amazed at the relative ease with which she completes her triples despite entering them rather slowly. I'm really impressed with the way her triple salchow seems to just rise up out of nowhere, following a few small three-turns.
i don't know if i would call her skating dull--hard to tell how mature or expressive she is from that free program clip. maybe she doesn't skate quite as big as her music?
anyway, having gotten excited over naomi nari nam and bebe liang in the past i'll take a wait and see attitude
Welcome, skfan. Thanks for joining us.
I definitely see more Mirai than YuNa when I watch Christina, but either way, she'll be one to watch in the coming years (I'd love to see a little more outflow on her jump landings, though!).
