Simonen/Penasse scored 74.70 in their FS. Their TES was 37.37. Don't know when they are planning to start competing internationally but if they would start soon it wouldn't be out of the question that they could skate at the Euros or Worlds already this season.
In junior ladies Sula landed 3T+3T in FS. Well done. She is the only finnish junior lady with 3-3 combo.
Emilia Simonen / Matthew Penasse achieved minimum SP TES for Worlds yesterday. FS will be skated later today. Good luck. The minimum FS TES is 43 points.
By the way, the last time Finland had a pair competing at the Worlds was way back in 1983.
Their FS TES was 48.90 It looks like Finland is going to have a pair competing at worlds.
Just checked Cessiville facebook and there is said there has been disappoitments, changes etc. What might have happened? But they are going to worlds anyway. Btw, what has happened to Karmi/Lindholm? Did they get frustrated after Turkkila/Versluis just beat them in they first competition ever and after that soon again in an international competition?
to #66: Maybe Sofia Sula is just concetrating on shcool. Read an article about her and she lives in a municipality almost 80 km north from Helsinki and her ice skating club is in Helsinki. It is respectable to be a top skater at national level in Finland if you come from a small municipality. She and Linnea Ceder, they might be a competitive pair like Kiira and Laura in the future. I like these young girls both very much.
