agree, probably somewhere 64-65.
wishing all the ladies the best again for tommorow
and especially to Mao and Adelina, Good Luck again, lets see what they will bring tomorow
I found Mao a little slower than usual, especially one of her camel spins. Adelina and Mao both seems slightly slow or hesitant on the footwork. Very happy tho they are both 1 and 3 so they should make the final I would guess.
alena and mao received level 4 on footwork...great choice for mao going for a double axel, the level of women figure skating does not need a triple axel (it's such a pity...). For me Alena is a little bit too much...
Mao Asada was beautiful, her SP is really special and unique, really a class on her own. I also really liked Haruka imai and Adelina...but alena ewww that was some really mediecore skate I have never seen such a chezzy choregraphy..
don't know what the commentators are saying at the last clip( spanish )
but clearly the girl is still spooked, Adelina still cant get over her nerves .
home turf and still nervous ? must be pressure and setting the bar higher on what Elizaveta did.
this what separates Adelina from Elizaveta, where Liza has her confidence miles above Adelina's
Adelina will be plagued by inconsistencies if she never gets over her nerves, I understand it must be frighthing to adjust competing with seniors now
but I just hope she gets over it soon, I think Mao and Alena will go for the last GPF Spot. I could be wrong depends on how the performance comes tommorow
Alena really gave 100% for her performance;but, she deserve better choreography. She stop and pose around 4 time in this program.:sheesh:
Leonova's steps got level 4, what a ridiculous!
In that case ,Kostoner's should be level 10!!
Adelina already survived her 1st growth spurt which was on 2009 and I have no doubt she will survive her 2nd growth spurt now
but I do agree the pressure is creeping up her nerves. I wont count on Liza growing that much she belongs to a tiny known ethnic group of volga finns
Im hoping for a better performance tommorow so that Adelina and Liza can square off at GPF
My favorite SP was Alena's. She skated with energy and passion and it showed, I hope she wins the LP. Mao's SP left me cold, her jumps were really good, but her choreography was boring and her arm gestures were repetitive and robot-like, she needs to inject more personality into her performances IMO. I'm so proud of Rachel, she skated well but didn't get much credit for it, she is a true competitor. I'm devastated for Christina, she was so sad after her SP, I just wanted to tell her what a beautiful skater she is and I hope she does much better in her LP.
