I pronounce it as Löna in my head. Because it‘s written Loena and not Leona ... but I really have no idea what’s right. :biggrin:

I think the announcer consistently pronounced it Luna at Nebelhorn Trophy, which to my knowledge is correct. In Dutch (one of the official languages in Belgium) oe usually sounds like a ‘u’ just like in Windhoek (like ‘hook’), or also in the name Jeroen.

Her FS really was fantastic... so vivacious! I ope she manages to iron the little errors out.

That is indeed correct (says the Dutchie).

Wow--impressive SP at Nebelhorn. She is looking really confident and it's nice to see different skaters and styles in the mix. Definitely a fan...

I'd never watched her skate before this weekend. Her programs are so strong and I love the music choices {Celine Dion SP :love:}! I am definitely a new fan of hers now. :)

Wishing Loena all the best for the grand prix season!

Any information about what her situation is?

Was she injured/sick during her short program? It was sort suprising to see her make so many mistakes.

I hope it‘s just a minor illness so that she can be fully fit for her next event. Get well soon, Loena!!! 🙏🏻

I saw somebody say that she got a stomach illness of some sort after arriving in Everett, but I don't know what the original source for that was.

Either way, not the Grand Prix debut I wanted for her, but hopefully it's just a bump in the road. I'm not giving up on my pre-season hope for her to make the Euros podium.

Loena posted on Instagram that she's on her way to Helsinki. Let's hope for better things this time; if she can do what she did at Nebelhorn, she'll be on the podium, looking at the field.

Shame about the flip but overall a good job. Her PCS could have been higher though. I agree with the British Eurosport commentators that her performance was the most enjoyable of all today.
Good luck in the free! I believe she can win that medal.

I believe the judges are too hard on her. She definitely deserves more on PCS. Hopefully she can slay tomorrow.

According to the protocols she had two URs. I'm surprised by 3Lz-3T<, I have to rewatch it.

But 7.25 in presentation from some judges? 🤔

Small mistakes today but still a good skate. I hope she'll fight for a medal at Euros this year, she's certainly capable of it.

I feel today she was somewhat underscored. I think she suffers from not being from huge skating federation. She was enjoyable.

That's true. In my opinion she's one of the best performers. Hopefully she doesn't leave the judges any room for doubt next time, the rest is out of her control. She has already proved that she can score +200 and I believe she will do it again in the near future.
