2013 Europeans Ladies LP
I'm having dinner, so will only watch last 2 groups intently.
Jenna MCCORKELL (GBR)
Music: Where Have All The Flowers Gone
3Lz - fall
3F - forward on landing
2A+2T - scratchy
3T+2A+SEQ - hangs on
Natalia POPOVA (UKR)
Music: La Bayadere by Leon Minkus
3Lo - stepout, hand down
LSp - perhaps not enough rot. in Biellman
Solid skate, but small combos, perhaps due to prerotation
That camel spin was possibly the worst camel spin I have ever seen.
Random Fact: The Last Austrian to be top ten was Julia Lautowa who was once married to Kostomorov but later dumped for Domnina.
Strange lack of confidence from Meite which led to a step out on her flip and loop and then caused her to double the the second flip.
Excellent 2axel/3 toe
She definitely brings the voids but really needs to work on the posture and edge work. :/
I miss Silete and fear there'll only be one spot for the French ladies in Sochi.
For me, this Meite program was kind of flat. Also a little slow and not a lot going on between elements. What happened this season?
Anita MADSEN (DEN)
fall on back crossovers!
3Lo - holds on
LSp - shaky Biellmann
Mae Berenice MEITE (FRA)
3F - hands down
3Lo - stepout
3F - or 2F?

Three falls for Fleur. The poor girl looked devastated.
Popova has some lovely qualities, her posture, edge work and hands are worthy of top 6 but she is the epitome of a skater with a team stuck in the past. If this was 1994 she'd be figting for the bronze with Lavrenchuk/Liashenko and Markova, but unfortunately they sport now requires transitions :/
It's frustrating to see someone with obvious talent not showing their true potential. I'm not sure when she moved to Petrenko but I'm hoping he is not responsible for that dated program that doesn't give her a chance.
I'm trying to watch the Latvian stream but it is freezing like crazy. Anybody got another free, working stream? I can get around geoblocks in many locations.
