Trophee Eric Bompard Ladies Free Skate

This event begins at 12:30pm EST.
The warmup group is on the ice.

Group 1
Lena Marrocco, FRA: 43.14 TES + 39.88 PCS = 83.02 Total: 126.97
  • Triple lutz + double toe
  • Triple toe step out
  • Triple toe + double toe
  • Nice donut position in her camel spin and a nice stretched out sit spin
  • Popped her loop into a double but a nice landing
  • Popped open her lutz
  • Double axel was nice
  • Flying entry into the sit spin with a not so pretty broken leg variation
  • She's really fighting these edge changes in her step sequence and a few places looks like she's struggling
  • A nice scorpion spiral position
  • She needs to work on her hands and making sure they have a prettier position while she's skating
  • Double axel + double toe + double loop was tight
  • Very nice layback spin into a Biellman but she finished after the music
Yretha Silete, FRA: 47.60 TES + 42.05 PCS -2.00 = 87.65 Total: 135.90 and into 1st place
  • It's nitpicky but she needs to use hair colored bobby pins--the 8 silver hair pins are really distracting
  • Nice triple loop
  • Fall on the triple flip
  • I don't think this pastel costume really matches her music--it looks like it belongs to a more lyrical program and she's going for power here
  • Nice triple toe + double toe + double toe
  • She needs to keep that leg right behind her on the spiral and not hike the hip so much
  • Fall on the triple lutz
  • The necklaces on her back are really distracting on the layback--they almost come over her head and it looks like they're going to wrap around her neck
  • She needs more stretch through her lines and deeper edges through this step sequence
  • Great height and fast rotation on her double axel
  • Great speed through her camel spin but unattractive positions
  • Triple salchow with a step out and big ice spray
  • Nice double axel + double toe
  • Decent camel spin position but a bit of a struggle in the upright position and she finishes after her music
Sonia Lafuente, ESP: 42.99 TES + 43.82 PCS = 86.81 Total: 136.32 and into 1st place
  • Hand down on her triple lutz
  • Nice triple loop + double toe
  • Double toe
  • Triple toe
  • Nice high leg position in the camel spin but I don't know if she gets low enough in the sit position to count 
  • Double loop
  • Double axel was nice
  • She needs to really work on stretching through that spiral and flexibility through her back
  • Double axel + double toe with not a lot of height
  • Good speed through her combination spin but she needs to really stretch through that free leg in the sit position
  • Not a lot of upper body movement in this step sequence but a good amount of turns
  • Nice layback position into a haircutter and a decent Biellman
Mae Berenice Meite, FRA: 51.87 TES + 44.08 PCS -1.00 = 94.95 Total: 145.44 and into 1st place
  • I wish she would either keep her tights tucked in to her boots or cover them completely.  This half coverage of her boots ruins the line
  • Double axel + triple toe
  • Fall on the triple loop--she just sat down on it and didn't fight for the landing
  • Triple lutz right on the music
  • Decent camel spin position but her upright spin has no stretch through either leg
  • Good triple flip
  • Nice layback spin but her Biellman is too far from her and slows down
  • Double axel + double toe + double toe
  • Good spiral position
  • Hand down on the triple lutz
  • Triple toe
  • It really takes her a long time to catch the foot and bring it into the donut position in her camel spin
  • The movements in her step sequence seem a little heavy and she's not really gliding across the ice

Group 2
Viktoria Helgesson, SWE: 48.59 TES + 52.15 PCS = 100.74 Total: 154.90 and into 1st place
  • I love her elegant packaging in this program--it suits her so well
  • Triple toe + double toe + double loop
  • Doubled her flip
  • Triple loop
  • I'd like to see more stretch in her free leg and more abandon through this step sequence to really sell the character of the program
  • Very fast camel spin but I'm not crazy about her broken leg variation
  • Triple flip
  • She needs more flexibility through her back to be able to really show off that spiral position
  • Double axel+ double toe
  • Nice speed in the camel spin with a nice low sit spin position with a good twist variation
  • Triple loop
  • Triple salchow with a turnout
  • She needs to stretch through the free leg in her sit spin position
  • Finishes just after the music

  • Solid program from Alissa--I felt like it ended too soon!
Carolina Kostner, ITA: 55.97 TES + 63.65 PCS = 119.62 Total: 179.32 and into 1st place
  • Very solid triple loop to open her program
  • Pops her flip jump into a double lands two footed and then stumbles out of it
