The ladies were all doing double axels and double lutzes. They were mostly trying the 3 sal-2 toe combo. A little rougher short program than the men...but some lovely moments.
I am too tired to form an overall impression of the free skates. It was not tidy.
Ramonda Glazanov. 3 sal-2 toe. 2 axel. 2 lutz. Awesome skate. closed out the night on a high note. Fast and spirited.
Prokofiev. 2 lutz-2 toe. 3 toe. 3 sal. 2 axel. ?flip? toe? Popped sal. 2 axel-2toe-2
loop. Great use of hands and arms. Very pretty back. NOTE: I am informed by
an e-mail correction that this was actually a TRIPLE lutz-2 toe combo. So sorry
to have not caught that. Amazing job.
