Ladies Long Program

 

Senior ladies have a 4 minute program that requires a double or triple axel (most ladies do a double, only Mao asada does a triple), a jump combination, a flying spin, a layback or sideways spin, a step sequence, and a combination spin.

Osmond (CAN)

  • Three foot to double toe
  • Double axel/triple toe
  • Fell on the triple sal
  • Missed most of Osmond’s score to stream not working
  • Nice triple sal but tight
  • Double flip, should have been a triple
  • Nice triple toe/double toe/double toe combination
  • Two footed double axel
  • Good step sequence
  • Nice spin combination
  • Needs more stretch in her spiral
  • Score: 110.73 

 

Gold (USA)

  • The Sleeping Beauty (music)
  • Good speed into her triple Lutz/triple toe combination
  • Nice double axel/triple toe, possibly two foot on the axel
  • Nice step sequence, but not as hard as it could be
  • Glad they changed to a blue dress from the pink one they had earlier this season. This one works soo much better
  • Ina bauer into a triple flip
  • Nice spiral into a triple Lutz
  • Good triple/double toe/ double toe
  • Woah got to close to the boards there. Running her hand on them
  • Nice double axel
  • Lovely centered spin
  • It’s great jumping but musically? Nothing special. She does not have the maturity like Ashley
  • Score: 129.38 (personal best)

 

Suzuki (JPN)

  • The Phantom of the Opera (music)
  • Not liking the flowers so much on her dress… doesn’t fit with PToO
  • Huge triple flip /double toe /double loop
  • Good speed into double axel/double toe
  • Traveling in her first spin
  • Nice step sequence
  • A little tight on that triple flip
  • Eked out that triple loop
  • Nice triple sal/double toe
  • I’m not loving this cut of Phantom…
  • Love that stretch spiral
  • Nice triple sal
  • Good program, the components was much better than Gracie’s
  • Score:  112.33

 

 

Marchei (ITY)

  • Nyah (Music)

  • Valentina is such an elegant skater
  • Nice double axel/double toe
  • Very nice triple Lutz!
  • Good triple flip but possible edge call
  • Two footed double axel
  • Great center to her sit spins
  • Not a fan of her layback though
  • Very nice step sequence
  • Two footed that loop
  • Catch foot into a triple Lutz/double toe
  • Lean on the triple sal but landed it into double toe double toe
  • Good speed in the final spin combination
  • Score: 112.51

 

Lipnitskaya (RUS)

  • Schindler’s List (music)
  • While I am not a fan of her short program, I absolutely love this program. She skates it with both child-like qualities because it’s from that perspective but also such maturity
  • Very nice triple Lutz/triple toe
  • Tight double axel/triple toe/double toe
  • Gorgeous step sequence
  • Leaning slightly into that triple flip but lands it
  • Nice double axel
  • Her speed is just incredible
  • Nice triple loop
  • Love this spiral sequence, though I wish she would hold it longer
  • Nice triple sal
  • Two footed Lutz/double toe
  • Amazing spin in this spin combination
  • Gorgeous Ina bauer!
  • Lovely spiral sequence
  • Final spin is sooo fast and gorgeous! Though a tiny bit of traveling
  • Score: 141.51

 

Thoughts:

  • Julia just brings the house down with that performance and it’s well deserved (unlike Plushenko). 
  • A little underwhelmed about the woman, save for Julia.

 

Leaders:
