Lecavelier lost something black on the ice (hairclip?), you could clearly see how she was thinking about where it was, even when on the other side of the rink, making a wide curve before her 3Lz to avoid it...
I was surprised they didn't stop the music...
She got -1 for a fall, and another -1 for losing sth on the ice.
The guy with Sarah Hecken is Daniel Weiss, btw
someone could help me - is Eliska Brezinova has some family connection with Michal Brezina?
Eliska BREZINOVA (CZE)
Music: The 13th Warrior (soundtrack) by Jerry Goldsmith
Black sparkly dress with white/purple ombre hem
2A+2T - 'tano toe
FSSp - free foot down, lost control, slighly regained it. Will it count?
StSq - straigth line
ChSq - arabesque spiral change-of-edge, back spiral
3S+2T - maybe slight twofoot on salchow
2F+2T+2Lo - 'tano loop
CCoSp - bit strained I-position
Some mistakes, but the 3 triples she did land looked solid
FS: 42.40 + 40.85 = 83.25 (PB), 130.35 (PB), in 2nd (out of 8)
Second group PCS boost for Brezinova whose skating is just awful, other than jumps.
OMG Popova flying apart. Three jumps, three falls.
Popova had falls in all her first three jump passes. Pity.
Natalia POPOVA (UKR)
Music: La Bayadere by Leon Minkus
One-shoulder pink/purple ombre dress w/ lots of sparkly gold details
3F - fall
3Lo - twofoot, fall
3T - fall, looked <
3T - twofoot, stepout, no combo
3S - hangs on
2A - twofoot, fall, <<
ChSq - spiral, spiral, split
Disaster skate with 4 falls... definitely a disappointment
FS: 27.19+42.06-4.00 = 65.25, 112.26, in 8th (out of 9)
4 falls overall for Popova, but apart from that, it´s a nice program!
Popova also skated through the music, had basic choreo and her posture and carriage are terrible. So nothing to hold her up.
Also it looks like all Popova's jumps were cheated.
Wow... I totally expected the ARD livestream to be geo-blocked.
I'm sticking with the NOS Dutch stream, though, they're both great. Such luxury, two perfect streams to choose from!
