Zijun Li was lovely

Christina Gao's 3F-3T is good. I wonder why she changed to 3T-3T last night.
Her 2A is so unstable now. Stumbled in both programs.
Step sequence is really slow.
Some nice jumps, but other than that, she needs Tatiana Tarasova to polish her up.
Lovely jumps from Zijun (especially the flip). Nice to see Li Mingzhu in the Kiss and Cry with a student who can actually jump, lol.
It's a pity that everything else from Kristiene is kinda blah, because that first jump of her's was amazing.
For the first time I've noticed that Christina actually seems to skate quite fast, but I now also notice that her presentation is very similar to Yu-Na's (this was especially evident at the beginning of the programme). I hope that Christina will eventually develop into a first-rate version of herself and not a second-rate copy of someone else.
Kristiene Gong (USA)
3Lz-2T - ok, maybe UR on Lz
2A - ok
3S - ok
2A-2T - ok
3T-2T - maybe UR on one or both jumps
Zijun Li (CHN)
3Lz - good, maybe flutz
2A-3T - nice
3F-2T-2T - nice
LSp - very nice
3Lo - also good
3F - ok, maybe UR
3Lo-2T - ok
3S - also landed
Usp - simple back scratch spin (oh, I've missed them)
Risa seemed nervous and finished after her music, but no major mistakes aside from a hand down. Gotta wait and see what the caller says, though, as some of her jumps were tight.
Shelepen landed two 2A+3T combos as well as a bunch of other triples but seemed to ahve issues with the 3Lz - almost fell in one or fell? don't know if it's a fall or not. Don't know where that will place, but I think she did enough to lead.
oh Zijun and Risa same score. overall Zijun 1st Risa 2nd.
Poor Polina, she looks like she's about to cry while waiting for her scores.
Polina 3rd for 147.37. Congrats Zijun at least win the bronze medal at home ice!
Risa Shoji (JPN)
