    Small update: Thomas Kennes maintained his 8th place (he skated in 8th in both the SP and the FS) at Santa Claus Cup in Hungary.

    Oh, wow! Thanks Harriet. I'm not a good one for following Juniors it seems, but this is a fantastic result for her. Hoping she keeps it up in the FS. I'm very pleased for her regardless.

    Golden Spin has some Dutch participants. Three ladies: Kyarha van Tiel and Niki Wories are probably fighting it out who will represent our country at Euros, while Linden van Bemmel of course also wants to make a splash. No Thomas Kennes, but then he competed less than a week ago in Hungary. Daria Danilova and Michel Tsiba will participate in the Pairs event. Let's hope they get their TES! No Ice Dancers. Nor are there any Juniors.

    First report from Golden Spin: the SP of the ladies event has finished. Niki Wories in in 8th, Kyarha van Tiel is 10th and Linden van Bemmel is last (25th).

    Junior ladies at Santa Claus Cup will start at app. 16.25 (4.45 PM), so in a few hours we'll know whether Lindsay has managed to get herself a medal.

    Silver for Lindsay - good work!

    Poor Linden looks to have had an attack of the nerves at Zagreb. Was it her first senior competition/first Challenger?

    Yay for Lindsay at Santa Claus Cup. Third in the Free, but managed to hold on to silver. Good for her, and actually for Dutch Figure Skating. I realise it's a senior B, not even a Challenger, but there were quite a few ladies there. It's not as if she were second with four entrants or something.

    Poor Linden indeed. I don't know whether it's her first Challenger or something like that, but I'll try to find out more. A depressing outing for her, not really confidence building.

    Hurrah, hurrah for Daria and Michel. 13th after the SP (out of 21) is not bad at all, and they also got their minimum TES for Euros for the Short. Wouldn't it be great to see a Dutch couple at Euros again? Now, please get those TES for the Long too!!!!!

    No new information about Lindens bad skate, aside from that she tried. Nothing about being especially nervous or anything. Just hoping she'll still experience the whole event as a competition to work from....

    Ah, sometimes it just happens. And as Vanessa James wisely says, in general you learn more from the bad skates than from the good ones. If Linden can look on it with that mindset she'll be okay.

    And they missed minimum TES for Worlds just by 0.1 point. Well, Rome was not built in one day. Europeans would be great for the team's first season if they are selected for the Dutch team. So go and get FS minimum TES too.

    Next report from Golden Spin: Linden van Bemmel remained last, although it was 24th due to a withdrawal of another skater.

    Niki and Kyarha both couldn't maintain their respective positions of 8th and 10th. In the final Niki was 12th and Kyarha 13th. Their difference in points: 0.25. Still an exciting rivalry in my view: the one was better in the short, the other in the long. Kyarha was 12th in the FS, Niki 14th.

    Pairs Free Skate starts at 19.00 h. Rooting for Daria and Michel to skate well (I'm also rooting for some other pairs, but not as a part of this thread!).

    Golden Spin news (though the Pairs event is not finished yet): Michel and Daria got their TES for the Free Skate for Euros. Hurrah!!!! Their score of 44.81 is even enough for Worlds (but they missed their SP TES for Worlds by a teeny weeny bit). I am so happy for them. I hope our Skating Federation will let them go to Euros. They've got the minimums, they've showed quite some progress along the season, so I feel they deserve that spot there.

    I'll be back with their final standings, but I couldn't help myself and had to share this.

    Well, Daria and Michel ended in 15th place out of 21 couples. They got their TES for Euros for both the SP (in which they were 13th) and the FS (where they were 16th) but funnily enough it was the lower placed FS in which they also managed to get their TES for Worlds. They really are improving which is nice to see. Onwards.
