A good news for those planning to attend the competition: entrance is free!!
Jason Dungjen is so charming and good looking! He doesn't show his age at all). I loved Reina, she skated so beautifully, very nice spins and good choreo (Yuka's). But the jumps... At least she looked much better than last year at 4CC. I cab't remember if she went to worlds also.Anyway at 4CC she didn't qualify for the LP and I really wanted to see it. I am looking forward to see it here and i hope she can qualify for the olympics. I was impressed by Jason travelling to Europe for her
Now, go Fleur!
Did Fleur withdraw?
Nice skating from Kat and Carol. Carol's long legs and hands reminds me of Carolina.
I know Jason is the perfect handsome coach, he does have several students at this competition thought, i think his mainly there because of Marchei..
Bressanutti reminds me of Kostner! and also Sarah Hecken have improved much!
Fleur did WD, dont know why...
Valentina Marchei just skated wearing a white dress w/ silver sparkles on her sleeves and back. Didn't regognize the music. Elements were:
3S - nice
3Lz - fall, no combo
SP score: 27.03+28.60-1.00 = 54.63, 1st for now
