Kailani makes it Junior Ladies' Champion twice in a row.
1. Kailani Craine NSW 114.64
*Great energy and well done on the triples but she needs to sort out her jumps as she got three downgrades and two under rotations.
2. Jenny Lu QLD 94.10
3. Yancey Chan QLD 93.64

Ok. I got my focus back again!

Masterful performance by Paris Stephens. So delicate in skating style. Nice to see that she is doing both disciplines. She should take the lead after these marks.
...and she does- by six marks!

[B]At this years championships there are have been some stand out skaters. I just want to mention a few.
Holly Harris of NSW- She is coached by Cheltzie's old coaches Kylie Fennell and Gloria Pracey. Her choreography reminds me of Gracie Gold- picture perfect.
Maggie O'Toole of NSW-She is also coached by Fennell and Pracey. She was the first person in the whole championships to land a double Axel cleanly
James Min- He was the first person in the competition to do triple jumps- which is amazing for someone his age and his height. He did a Firebird Routine and had the Machida intensity to match it.
James Thompson- He has Charlie White Hair and he had a good skate overall.
Kailani Craine- Her determination to land her jumps reminds me of Tara Lapinski. She is a fighter when she attacks those triples. She needs to work on those jumps to avoid having the underrotater tag like Mirai has.
Renee Hambly- She had a Lady Gaga SP and had the costume and hair to match.
Darien Kaptich- Best man on the night, he can do triples and can do a sort of full beillman, which is amazing since most of the competitors thus far in amy of the divisions opted to only do a haircutter position.

We are ready to Dance in five minutes. Short Dance is about to commence.

WOW 58.03 from O'Brien and Merriman!
Fantastic result. The Presentation score is correct in my opinion. The technical score was very generous.....VERY generous!
You can hear Greg joking after the results that they were inflated and that they will never get scores like that at the Olympics! Love that guy- extremely laconic.

Chantelle is not on the ice. Though I can't see the faces very well, Chantelle is a clockwise spinner and everyone on the ice is spinning counter clockwise.
I need to check to see if she is in another skating position.

Chantelle Kerry has withdrawn from the Senior Ladies' Event. The reason is yet not known.
