Kexin ZHANG (CHN)
Music: Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind by Joe Hisaishi
3T+2T - fall
3Lo - perhaps <
3F - e
One fall on the planned 3-3 combo, but the rest looked solid enough. No expression whatsoever, though... Some of her combos looked UR in replay
FS: 48.37 + 41.24 - 1.00 = 88.61
Tot: 137.41, in 4th (out of 5)
She must've gotten some < and <<
Yay, very nice by Zhang I really like her a lot and hope she will have a strong season next year.
Kexin Zhang has a lot of technical chops, but seriously needs a personality transplant if she's going to continue on at the elite level. She'll get hammered on PCS.
Ah, Nausicaä...where is Kozuka when you need him....
If these first girls keep skating like this the top groups are really going to have to "bring it". Anything less would feel kind of anti-climatic.
Aw, I was hoping Zhang would get better marks. Yeah, she had no real presentation but I still enjoyed watching her.
I enjoyed Kexin's performance a lot too. She has a bright future ahead of her.
Did Vanentina forget to take her pink gloves off?
Valentina looks like she's wearing a dress from the Olive Oyl Collection.
