I counted the change of edge and she made it close to three rotations, which is more than she needs to have it count. Maybe the technical caller felt she didn't sustain the position long enough (it kinda drooped near the end). As for the jump, I'm not certain on the error (was the jump not high enough? does she need to be in a better tuck position in the air for it to count?).

Yep, you got it...she jumps so high...amazing technique indeed;-) and she has the best edges in the world in ladies singles. She could do ice dance as well;-))) soo great to. I was raving about her again in our rolelr skating practice today to my coach...;-)) she is a solo dancer on skates and has the best technique herself there and loves ice skating as well. She teaches well...still corrects my cross rolls...still not perfect those. Thats the spirit...#

Yep, who knows whether the tea did the trick on Saturday! perhaps she is now hunting ginger lemon tea back in Seoul....;-))) I am sure they stock it in a shop!
Interpretive skating is really something different...the fun in competing is shown instead of bickering etc which is so often present in competitions all over the place...it can spoil the atmosphere for everyone there....BTW, today I met somebody from Perth, Australia who is staying for a year in Wuppertal and does ice skating as an adult skater and joined our group today...his ksating is very good. His occupation is a crane driver and in Germany he works as an au pair,-))) Talk about interesting combinations...I told him about Yu na Kim#s skating in our rink he was most impressed.;-))) I'll have to ask him whether he knows this board, and whether he likes to join. I could imagine that there arent many adult skaters in Australia....he wants to do the workshop for adult skaters in Oberstdorf in 2013 too, so thats not just me wanting to do that which is great...perhaps we can find some more people and rent a flat together then accommodation wouldnt be so expensive......
(I met Sting twice, he signed my copy of Broken Music in Berlin in 2009, and also I shook his hand after the soundcheck to the Labyrinth concert in 2006;-))) there you are;-) his house is in Figline Valdarno (or near it) and he often is in Siena et al...I have been to Tuscany as well, wonderful area with good wines....Sting has good taste in everything and, yep he a cool guy)
