    I predict Rika to be the first junior lady to get over 200 points.

    This is the 3A the lady field needs to be pushed forward!! I am fed up with tano and ribbon and backloading tricks.

    watched Rika's every jump in super-slow-mo. checked take-off and landing. There are no doubt about them at all. I like Rika's flip cos she used similar tech as Yuna
    I also like Rika's big smile

    That was a nice 3A. It had real power behind it, rather than just quick rotation. She didn't seem like she stalked it too much either... just here we go, and bam. Nice to finally see.

    YEEEEEEEEEESSSS!!! so happy for her, not only did she qualify for JGPF but she did in an amazing way!! hopefully next time will be even better, i know she got all +GOE for her jumps but some of the landings can be even better!!
    btw i love the placement of her elements, feels very balanced
