I am sending whatever good vibes I have to Liza for the FS. No matter what happens placement wise, I want her to have a skate she is proud of.
Obviously NCAO.Never count Anna out! Every movement is exquisite, and she knows the meaning behind every movement. Including those quad jumps.
I concur with someone who said earlier, I reckon Sasha Trusova should stop leaving her 3A on the warm-up ice. Looking forward to Cruella.
Kamila was exquisite today. Just marvelous, every superlative you can think of. I wish the FS showed all of her talents in expression and performance as well as the SP does.
I really don't know. Probably Russian skaters focus more on jumps and spins. Or the judges were harsh. But the protocols show the leading women got StSq 4.I'm intrigued as to why so many only got StSq 2, if anyone has any insights
I was just coming in to type that if Trusova is clean tomorrow, she is going.For those who still dream that Khromykh has options to go to the Olympics, remember how qualifying is done:
The champion of the nationals has the direct qualifying pass (Valieva), the 2nd usually also has his classification assured if he maintains his good regularity of the season (Shcherbakova)
Instead, they always have to fight for 3rd place in a 2nd and even 3rd event... in those events the classification is even more subjective and the podium will always be decided based on what is best for the Federation.
Taking this into consideration, if Sasha is minimally stable, with a conservative skating of 3 quads, she is already in the Olympics alongside Valieva and Shcherbakova. Trusova today failed in an element that he does not need (3A) to be on the podium of the Olympics, instead Tuktamysheva and Khromykh failed in basic things and very necessary for them ... regularity and consistency is what the federation considers most for choose your third place.
She doesn't even have to be clean. She has scored over 150 with falls, hasn't she?I was just coming in to type that if Trusova is clean tomorrow, she is going.
Neither Maiia nor Liza took advantage of the door being opened today. And if Trusova is mostly clean, she will still finish above both of them.
Why did it take until after the original protocol was published to correct the error?"There was a malfunction in the system. The referee pointed out the delay in the start of Sofia Muravyeva, but it was not displayed in the computer. This is called an "input error", in such cases, changes in the protocols are possible" - RusFed give explanation
