How old is Nishino? I vaguely remember hearing her name a couple years ago.. Is she going to seniors competition soon?
Nishino is born in September 1993, so she is 17. She was absolut fabelous in her first Junior year. Won both her JGPs, was 3rd in JGP-Final and 5th at Junior Worlds. (07-08)
Then she become some problems - Puberty! - and the following season she was only 15th in her only JGP. (08-09)
Last season she come back strong and finished 2nd and 6th at her JGPs. (09-10)
She skated at Ondrej Nepela Memorial last year and finished 4th ... that was her first ISU Senior competiton.
And now, it looks that she really is back after the problems - I hope it! It´s always so worse, to see a talented skater struggle ....
Not better for Liza today ... I really believe the pressure were toooooo big ... 2 Deductions ... hope she had a good time and make a lot of experience ... in Germany it will be better ... for sure little girl!!
Oh my god! Nishino skated really poorly ... 4! Deductions
Seems like not the best day for the young ladies...
Ok, but to be fair, the French skater will not beat Lizas score ....
Come on Rosa ... skate like in France and you will win and qualify for the Final!
And don´t do what the other in your group did ... we don´t wan´t a splat festival in the last group!
Liza will get a medal. Can't believe how low the scores are in this comp. Nobody is skating up to their ability so far, among the top skaters (well, the French girl I don't know; I don't know what triples she has).
Oh no ... Roza also skated really poooooor .... USA can win .. or will Liza win with poor programms compared to what she really can?
We have really a splat festival in the last group
Whoaaaa I think both Shion and Elizaveta are surprised to be medalling ahead of their respective compatriots.
