    Thumbs up

    Just watched the replay of the google hangout with ice dance champions Danielle O'brien and Gregory Merriman alongside Australian Aeriel skiier David Morris (who is currently ranked second in the world) and up and coming alpine skiier Greta Small. It was a short but great interview. Dani and Greg look like such nice and honest people. Great Sportspeople to represent Australia.

    In the interview they were asked about their thoughts of making it to Sochi, Nebelhorn (both 2009 and 2013), training in Detroit (and more interestingly, how they got from training in Sydney to Detroit) and what they think are their chances of making it past the short dance event in Sochi next year.

    There is a link to the article and video below.

    All the Best for Chantelle Kerry who is skating in the Senior Ladies event at the Ondrej Nepela Trophy in Bratislava, Slovakia. If you go om the Ondej Nepela thread on this site, you will find more information and a link to a live stream.
    Chantelle is skating in the first group in the short program.

    Secondly, good luck to Brooklee Han. Who is skating in the Junior Grand Prix of Czech Republic. Go on the respected thread to get information. Videos will be on the ISU's junior grand prix channel.

    Does Chantelle earn ranking points for this comp? Can this help us in our Team Event Quest?

    Good luck ladies!
    Unfortunately, chantelle cant earn any points from this. Only 2013 championship events and 2013-14 grand prix events count. The points system is quite confusing but ukraine and great britain are too strong at the moment for Australia. maybe Pyongchange 2018 we might get lucky

    Chantelle is next. Fingers crossed

    Not a bad job Chantelle. A hand down on the triple toe but the rest was good- nice triple loop attempt also. Her music is very nice to listen to and its quite a well known song. All the best.

    In two very tight and competitive fields Chantelle sits in 9th after the SP at Ondrej Nepela and Brooklee sits in 11th after the SP at JGP Czech Republic.

    News

    Brooklee Han takes on Junior Grand Prix

    FIGURE SKATING: Just days after her outstanding performance in Oberstdorf to qualify for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, Brooklee Han is back on the ice, competing in the Junior Grand Prix in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

    The 18-year-old is sitting in 11th position after the short program of the ladies' individual, earning 47.09 for her efforts. Han was not able to replicate her personal best performance of 48.74 that she scored in the Olympic Qualifying Event, although she did score a higher Technical Elements Score (TES) than in Germany, which is a promising sign for her future competitions.

    Han will now be looking to produce a strong free program to try and lift her position to the top-ten or top-five . The free skate will take place on Saturday 5 October at 10.30am in the Czech Republic - 6.30pm AEST.

    More to come, after the conclusion of the free program.

    Triple Look

    Components ranged from high 4s to mid 5s

    Whoa! Go David!

    I absolutely love his skating. He's got such gorgeous knees and edges and flow and extension!

    I agree. He does have a great extension, knees, edges and flow. He can also interpret the music pretty well. Some more speed and power and working on softening the landings on his jumps will do him no harm. I'm excited when he begins to push himself with his jumps and transitions though. If he can work on those things, he could easily put some pressure on Brendan (Who I hope will have his quad toe ready soon!)

    From the looks of the rest of the field, he could very well be fifth after the shortprogram is over. If he can stay clean in the long, he could move up to fourth overall. The skater from the Czech Repubic who is in fourth has lower components than David and since the value of components are doubled in the free, David can make up that deficit, provided that he skates clean.

    If David finishes top 5, does this mean ranking points?
