For some years, they trained together in Regensburg. Together with Alissa Scheidt (First in Junior I after SP) and Annabelle Prölß.

Annabelle be so successfull in pairs skating. (went to Oberstdorf two or three years ago)
Good Morning: Advanced Boys FS current results
1 Luc Timon MEHLHORN 53.56
2 Luis SCHUSTER 40.68 = 57.75
3 Maxim KNORR 49.68 = 73.39
4 Daniil SAVITSKI 40.71 = 63.04
5 Jurek KOLBE 32.94 = 53.30
6 Jiri BELOHRADSKY 64.49 = 93.21
He showed us some really nice jumps, for instance the triple Sal (slight wobble), triple Toe and Rittberger. Also to note is a solid double Axel - double Toe combination, especially since he had a few minor issues with the first double Axel solo right at the start.
7 Luc MAIERHOFER 55.27 = 83.81
8 Luke DIGBY 51.46 = 79.17
9 Mikhail STROKOV = 51.71 = 76.27
10 Marvin RÖMPLER 48.27 = 76.07
11 Daniel GRASSL 47.22 = 76.65
Such a funny skater he is, constantly flirting with the judge who is in green today, but was in red yesterday. I believe she likes him His pants were just way to big for that tiny guy - but then again, this was spot on to his funny personality.
12 Severin REICH (leading after SP) 58.48 = 97.72
Wow, that sadly wasnt so good and quite a disappointment for him. While he got more points than at the german youth nationals a few weeks ago (came 4th there), he again struggled with many of his jump elements, like the triple Sal, but also the Rittberger did end with him on the ice.
13 Jonathan HEß 59.72 = 91.94
Great performance, liked his speed on the ice and some good jump elements as well, like the double Axel - double Toe comb and his double Flip - double Toe. He topped his score from the youth nationals where he came second slightly.
14 Matyas BELOHRADSKY 70.42 = 109.12
Matyas performed 4 triple jumps today, of which just the Sal was underrotated. However, his triple Toe - double Toe, the Rittberger and the Toe were fine. To note is also a solid double Axel - double Toe combination by the Czech. Matyas seemed to be very pleased with his performance.
15 Kai JAGODA 56.52 = 89.84
He went for the triple Sal, but sadly didnt get the full rotations :(. No other triples, but a good double Axel - double Toe, double FLip - double Toe for the starter from Berlin.
16 Gabriel FOLKESSON 61.24 = 97.69
He had a very simple outfit (blue Pullover with some glitter - black pants), however his performance wasnt simple at all. The Swede did really good. I Enjoyed his program consisting of a triple Sal and Toe & double Axel - double Toe, also a nice sit spin and Flying camel of the tiny Swede.
17 Isaak DROIZEN 47.11 = 77.10

Cheers for the infos, I read about Nelma on a finnish website and I wondered why someone would first skate for a german club and then go back to Finnland. I would assume that the finnish skating school has all you need?

Alex & Nelly are here, also Maylin & Daniel as some of the German Olympic team will prepare for Sochi here - nice side effect of the Bavarian Something funny btw. the ice guys at Oberstdorf are so much faster than those at Budapest! That makes me wonder, how fast can such a vehicle go for?

You have to achieve the points twice a season. But sadly, only Kreitmeyer received it one time until now.
All have an double Axel and/or an triple. So girls, come on, you can do it!
Hope the best for all of them!
Review girls advanced I:
1 Maelle OBERLÄNDER 48.37 = 70.60
She had a huge smile on her face, once she was done with her jumping elements. I loved that she put the double Rittberger combo at the end, that takes some guts to be honest! A tiny little whirlwind the German is, I enjoyed her performance a lot - great start into the female part of the day.
2 Eva-Liisa LOHMUS 35.90 = 54.22
I liked how she tried to use the music for some of the elements, like with the flying sit spin around the end. Another positive point is, that she stayed on her feet, no matter how much she struggled with her elements like the 2 double Axels and Flips in combination with a Toe or solo performed.
3 Celine Leonie WEISS 42.16 = 64.38
Leo did start really great with two big combinations. First the double Lutz - double Loop combination (slight wobble) and afterwards the double Flip - double Loop. Its a shame that she later lost points at the double Flip and Flutz, but also that she didnt have a double Axel either. However, what stood out was her great attitude, she was just always enjoying herself and I love these type of skaters who enjoy being on the ice.
4 Thyle KELDER 34.46 = 54.87
Our friend from Estonia had a really unlucky day. She lost three of her jumps due under rotation like the Rittberger in both combinations with a double Flip, but also the Lutz had to be downgraded. However, if there is dark then there is also light and that light came in form of her flying sit spin, which received a level three.
She wasnt happy at all :(
5 Elizabet GALAZDRA 35.60 = 56.67
Eliza did sadly start with a fall on the double Lutz, but recovered nicely from it as she performed a clean duble Lutz - double Toe combination later in her program, aswell a double Flip - double Toe combination with a slight wobble, but she fought for it. The young girl from the Ukraine wanted to leave the ice quite quickly however. Its funny, some skaters take all the time in the world, we had those today as well and other just want to run away.
6 Laura MORATH 44.60 = 68.54
Laura who competes for the Oberstdorf EC, was dressed with a white flower in her hair and had a decent skate today. I liked that she did a double Flip - double Toe and also the opposite based on the edge - the double Lutz - double Toe! In general, her elements were pretty solid and clean - no real issues, just the Rittberger and Axel lacked on rotation. For me she has a very watchable style on the ice, its fun to see her skate and she is trying to use the music for her elements.
7 Greta LUPATELLI 52.49 = 78.45
Oh this one was great. She has a great feeling for her body and the music, very fluent movements of that elegant skater, you hardly noticed her on the ice - good SS. The italian landed her double Axel - double Toe combination, with the latter underrotated. While she had to fight at some of her jumps, she stayed on her feet and kept her positive expression in the face.
8 Marina DELLA ROVERE 46.06 = 70.81
She put her combinations jumps right at the start of her program (Lutz + toe / Loop + Toe all double), the Axel however at the end just single. For me she had a really nice interpretation of her program, I loved the showgirl dress, it was very enjoyable to watch.
9 Katharina KURZ 47.38 = 72.98
Kati sadly fell on her double Flip, however she had a nice ice coverage in my opinion and her spins received a level three. The double Lutz looked quite nice, maybe there is potential for a triple in future - Id love to know if she practices that element already. The German also had two lovely double Loop combinations and was dressed in blue & white today.
10 Anastasija PAVLOVICHA 44.13 = 67.90
My favorite so far, amazing how this young girl filled the huge ice rink with her appearance. While she wasnt outgoing like others, her more quiet personality was stil very touching. Her Axel was just a single, but the rest like the Lutz & Rittberger who she combined were double. I think she could become a good skater, at least I enjoyed her a lot.
11 Anna Rose JANSEN 48.83 = 76.67
Beautiful as a Rose Haha I know, but really - she was lovely to watch. I liked the speed in her spins, good comb of double Lutz - double Toe as well. Very enjoyable skater.
12 Julia ZENNER 47.51 = 73.52
One of the smallest girls today, but came really close to the end of the ice rink - not scared at all.
13 Franziska KETTL 46.09 = 72.81
14 Melina MÜHLBACHER 50.40 = 77.50
She is quite a quicky girl on the ice, not only with her spins that all received a level three. While she didnt perform any triples she still had a lovely double Lutz - double Rittberger (Loop) and double Flip - double Toe combination. The Axel was single.
15 Anna WEHRHEIM 48.28 = 74.52
16 Greta Mager 38.81 = 67.11
Not her best day :( She struggled a lot with her double Lutz, it just didnt work at all - she had like no take off and couldnt get the full 2 rotations, also the double Flip was a hard fight at the end. It just wasnt her day, still - she kept smiling and fighting even after those three nasty falls.
17. Maggie Hills 54.60 = 82.69
Aw the young lady from GB that I liked so much yesterday. She has a very elegant and soft way of skating. Her routine today started with a nice double Axel - double Toe combination and also her other jump elements were always performed as a double including Lutz, Flip and ofc. the Axel.
18. Ann Christin Marold 54.62 = 83.05
She is so tiny, but a lovely skater with a great expression inher face. She was dressed as one of the forest nymphs (if that is the right word for it?) and like those she was whirling around on the ice. She performed a double Rittberger combo, a double Lutz and her spins received level three (Pielman included). Axel and the second Lutz just single sadly, still enjoyable program!
19. Vlada Laha 42.24 = 70.13
She went for the triple Sal twice, but sadly both not fully rotated, however the double Lutz was and the double Axel. I loved her outfit a lot, nice young lady from Latvia, nice spins of level three like the flying sit.
20. Kristina Isaev = 55.60 = 83.87
Double Axel - Double Toe was lovely executed, also a good double Rittberger combination - issues at the Sal (only single). Nice Tano variations too, a very open minded performance and level three spins and step sequence.
21. Sophie Hanke 51.89 = 80.36
The young german started big with a triple Toe and two double Lutz - double Toe & Rittberger combinations, I liked her spins a lot, the Axel just a single.
22. Lena Kreitmeier 53.56 = 84.46
Lena landed the triple Lutz / Rittberger - double Toe combinations, also her two double Flips. Sadly she struggled on her double Axel. I really liked how she always smiled into the crowd, also great combination spins by her, they looked great! Well done by the young German!
23. Petra Laakkonen 50.03 = 82.09
The young Fin who wore a pink dress today, started well with her double Axel - double Toe combination, she also tried the triple Sal which she sadly couldnt land. Her Axel however and the Lutz - Toe combination went okish. I like this one, like with all the Fins they just look great on skating boots and have a very soft skate. Shame however, that she lost so many positions and elements today.
24. Ekaterina Kurkova 68.95 = 106.58
Triple Lutz & co. with 10 years already, and what can I say - she was amazing today. Her jumps rock solid, a always changing expression in her face, depending on the theme of the music, what do you want more? Amazing from the tiny Russian!
She had a triple Sal (in comb), Toe, Rittberger and Lutz for us today - plus two Triple - double combination of Sal + Toe and Toe + Toe.
25. Anita Östlund 50.56 = 85.32
The young swede who has such a great personality on the ice, had a hard afternoon. She collided with the end of the ice rink when she tried her triple Sal and in general had quite a few issues with her jumps like the Flip just single and the Axel underrotated, while the Rittberger was a triple but a shaky one. It was great to see however, that she didnt let go and kept fighting until the end, where she nailed a nice triple Sal - double Toe and gave us all a glimpse of what she is cappable of.
Review girls II
Advanced Girls II
1 Harriet BEATSON 40.68 = 66.68
The Brit struggled with her double Lutz today, she sadly couldnt land one of the two clean. However, the Flip - toe and Rittberger toe combination (both double - double) were clean. I liked the energy she had in her skate.
2 Emely WEIß-MAES 42.15 = 68.19
I believe the skaters of the USG Chemnitz are the loudest here at the ice rink, so they of course cheered for their teammate. Emmy performed a solid double Rittberger combination and two double Lutz, her spins were really nice and received both a level three.
3 Stina FREDERIKSSON 41.00 = 65.94
Based on her appearance you would put her into the juniors already and she started nicely with a double Axel - double Toe combination, her spins also received a level three. However her second Axel was just a single, so were the Lutz and Rittberger - nice level three spins though!
4 Hannah RÜHRNÖSSL 41.40 = 65.32
The Austrian who skates for the EKA Außerfern attempted the triple Sal, but sadly didnt get it fully rotated - also the first doule Flip gave her some problems today. She performed a good double Rittberger - double Toe combination and did skate to Pearl Harbour.
5 Camilla CAPPELLIN 44.57 = 70.92
The Italien had a very interesting program consisting of an attempted double Axel - double Toe (latter just single) and a double Lutz - double Toe. She also tried the triple Sal, but didnt get it fully rotated and fell.
6 Morgan SWALES 45.71 = 72.63
I liked her SP a tiny bit more to be honest, still I love those Tano jumps - its really something you dont see that often from skaters, if I recal correctly then Adelina has some of those as well. Morgen who was dressed in a lovely red bling bling dress lost her first Axel and also struggled on the first Lutz. The combination of double Lutz - double Toe however was nicely done and her spins received level three
7 Elizabeth HARSH 56.27 = 86.12
I loved how she had her elements choreographed. As example, when the wizard of oz theme came up - she was literally walking to the wizard, while the "rainbow" part was more laid back so to speak. She also kept her eyes in the crowd and had a nice interpretation overall. Liza´s technical skills were also quite high, for instance her double Axel - double Toe right at the start was lovely done, so was the double Flip - double Rittberger combination.
The Czech who made a huge jump from 7 to 2, even went for the triple Sal - while with problems it was fully rotated and landed!
8 Pinja LAINE 46.56 = 73.61
She went for the big jumps right at the start including the double Axel - double Toe combination and a triple Sal - latter sadly not fully rotated and she fell. However, she recovered nicely from that and landed a solid double Lutz - double Toe combination, just the Axel gave her a few problems, still double. What I liked about the Fin was her great expression whenever she did finish an element - she always checked with us ("hey did you like that?") so to speak - great!
9 Christina SCHÖNER 49.94 = 76.54
Her skating is just "schön" - I really like how she glides. Christina went for the double Axel - double Toe and also the triple Sal, a few struggles here and there, but still I like what she does and she has got the right family name for sure *laughs*
10 Sarah KUHNERT 48.66 = 76.74
Loved her funky dress, however she didnt like to sit at the kiss & cry. Sarah went for the double Flip - double Toe twice and had a good step sequence, which received a level three, so did her spins!
11 Martina MANZO 45.37 = 75.04
She was a bit like a papaer airplane, driven by the wind and she had a really nasty fall on her triple Flip. Great spins and steps however!
12 Meike RÖMPLER 51.54 = 83.33
She really had to put up a fight here, damn! Meike was quite exhausted after her skate, but she never stopped fighting and went for some big elements like the double Axel - double Toe combination and the triple Toe, where she sadly had a nasty fall.
13 Jasmin LUGERT 54.07 = 84.17
Naughty girl with a funny start position right infront of me! She is fun to watch on the ice and didnt do any major mistakes and performed the double Lutz - double Toe twice today, also a nice double Axel - loved her level three spins and the lovely done step sequence.
14 Michaela Lucie HANZLIKOVA 68.87 = 104.28
This young lady was really great, she always had a big smile on her lips and played nicely with the music of her routine. Also she had the highest difficulty in her program! The Czech performed a really nice triple Sal - double Toe combination, a triple Toe and a very well executed triple Rittberger out and in combination with a double! She absolutely enjoyed her time on the ice and she gave us a lot of joy as well with her level three spins and I loved those steps especially.
15 Vanessa GRALLERT 52.89 = 83.88
Vanessa is a bit like you want a skater to be on and off the ice. We in Germany say "kess" to such girls, those that are a bit naughty and take things not that serious. Vanny pulled her tongue out towards us with a tiny wink, like she wanted to say "oh well, not so bad after all, was it?"
She really took it very easy that not everything was 100%, I like that a lot - she has a nice personality. As for her elements today, she gave us a solid triple Sal and double Lutz - double Toe combination, but sadly something went wrong on her Axel which was just a single and even this not fully rotated it seemed, great last spin - loved this one and her funky outfit!
Still, she is worth watching, look on YT she has some vids online.
16 Jade RAUTIAINEN 49.69 = 83.44
Jade went for the triple Sal today, sadly slightly underrotated it seemed, the other just a double. The Fin also struggled with her double Axel - double Toe comb, but managed to stay on her feet. What she didnt manage however was defending her second spot, such a shame - she only had the 7th FS, just too many mistakes today, but she kept her head up all the time, nice!
17 Francisca WOLF 49.49 = 79.59
She didnt start so well when she had to open up her Flip,however she put her double Lutz - double Toe on the ice nicely and added some Tano to a few jumps as well!

Nelma was very successful at novice level but later she has grown a lot and has struggles with injuries too.

What I can tell however is that both Fins had very good moments, but lacked some consistency. Jenni didnt got for the triple Toe -triple Toe today, but had a wonderful Triple Sal - double Toe - double Toe, and a fantastic double Axel - triple Toe Comb, also the first Rittberger was triple today and her appearance, oh god! Lovely! Ljubov went for the double Axel. triple Toe too, but had a few more sloppy elements like the RIttberger - Toe comb (only 3-1) and the triple Flip where she fell. However, wonderful triple Lutz!
Also to mention is the south african Michaela - she was great too, she got me with her performance and she is so cute! Alissa sadly struggled :( Sal and Toe both triple attempted, but not fully rotated and she also fell.

I also have some Oberstdorf "Gosspi" for you.
It seems like Annabelle & Ruben wont skate, due a tiny percussion regarding a slight "injury" nothing serious however. Thomas was here today as well, he left all his groupies at home however.
Also to note, the Junior I and II will be combined later and have a winner together.
Haha thanks for sharing, so funny!
