Baga is officially out, and I guess that means Zijun, as the first alternate, is officially in!
I'm pretty sure it's the former reason (the fuss everyone makes despite it not appearing in competition).
Zijun's fabulous CoC exhibition skate:
She's growing into a really beautiful skater as well as young lady. Her jumps are big and easy, her spins fast and centered, her skating smooth and effortless, her extension/posture/lines all top-notch. I'm so glad we'll get to see her at JGPF!
For me, it's an open call for a winner without Baga. I will look for Zijun.
Actually Baga was very lucky to even qualify, the Chinese girl deserved it so much more... I feel sorry for Kiri and wish her a speedy recovery, but it will be really nice to see Zijun Li at the final
Yes, I believe that Kiri qualified in the very last spot, and just barely... very sorry that she is injured and had to withdraw, but Zijun's scores were so much higher.
