Haruka IMAI (JPN)
Music: Piano Concerto by Saint-Preux
3F - scratchy
3Lo - lean, stepout
3S - lean, stepout
2A+3T - solid
3S - fall, no combo
2A - held on, looked UR
ChSq - spiral, spread eagle, falling leaf
LSp - bit slow Biellmann
Lots of messy landings. She will fall behind Murakami
Score: 45.80+50.95-1=95.75 (SB), 145.30, in 2nd out of 2
I remember her PCS in the china was low too. 57.03 to 54.96. She is 2 point off from that score.
Looks like Haruka Imai will be last here, she needs to make a change she's regressing. Nikol is skating well.
I actually don't think I've ever seen her skate nearly this well o.O Should be a new record, by quite a margin.
Nikol GOSVIANI (RUS)
Music: Prelude G-moll, op. 23 No. 5 by Sergei Rachmaninov
3F+2T - bit lean, twofooted on flip
3Lo - twofooted
3Lz+2T - e, twofooted on lutz
ChSq - spiral, spread eagle
Fistpump from Gosviani. Solid skate, some small mistakes. Her jumps and technique look a bit weird and different from the other Russian girls
Score: 53.12+53.84=106.96 (PB), 157.17 (PB), 2nd out of 3
