I love Julia! Finally someone who skates like she wants to win. Everything was divine, perfect, precise....she'll be tough to beat. Standing O from me
yay! now go Adelina!
what a shame Lip is too young for 2014 - she's already world class, IMO.
3T-3T - turn-out
3Lz - turn-out
1F - no combo
3F-2T - one hand down in the flip
59.95 + 118.20 = 178.15
Julia Lipnitskaia 128.54
Into first. Will either stay there or be second depending in Sot. VERY happy for her.
Russia is not shy about replacing low-performing Euros team members at Worlds.
In 2007, Nationals #1, #2, and #3 went to Euros and placed, 28th, 11th, and 7th, respectively. Nationals #3 (Sokolova) and #4 then went to worlds.
Leonova's spot on both teams is pretty safe, but Makarova and Biryukova could easily bomb (or medal) at Euros, so Shelepen has a good chance for 2 of the 3 worlds spots...
How did Alena get that score for all those turn outs.
Alena's PCS seems way too high, at least relatively to Liza's. Five points?
(Granted I haven't seen either program yet, so maybe I will change my mind.)
And that TES! So, so low. Guessing she's out of fuel (she said as much right?).
63.11 +128.54=191.65 (1st)
Adelina skated the first half beautifully....but had errors on the landings of her last 3 jumps. Still, it's her best FS of the season and she performed beautifully.
Adelina into first though Julia did beat her in the FS. I honestly think her score for what she just did was too high, but happy for her all the same.
well all the scores were a bit inflated , Julia should have won, imo
but I'm happy for Adelina she can control her jumps especially her lutz combos
