Figure Skating Cha Jun-hwan, 2nd Place in Nephela Memorial Short… ‘4th Rotation Jump Mistake’
‘Junior GP final confirmed’ Kim Hyun-gyeom ranked 8th in short
Cha Jun-hwan (Korea University), the leading Korean figure skating men’s singles player,
took second place due to a mistake in the fourth round jump at the 31st Nephela Memorial Short Program,
an International Skating Union (ISU) Challenger Series competition.
Jun-hwan Cha scored 83.91 points, including 42.08 technical score (TES) and 41.83 artistic score (PCS),
in the men’s single short program held in Bratislava, Slovakia on the 30th (Korean time).
Cha Jun-hwan, who fell far short of his ISU certified short program highest score (101.33 points),
ranked second after Nika Egaje (Georgia, 84.11 points).
The Nepela Memorial is a challenger competition that is one level lower than the Grand Prix series,
Cha Jun-hwan participated in this competition for practical experience ahead of participating in the 2nd and 5th competitions of this season’s Senior Grand Prix.
Cha Jun-hwan got off to a good start by perfectly performing his first jumping task,
a quadruple salchow-triple toe loop combination jump with a base score of 13.90,
winning a score of execution (GOE) of 2.72 points. 먹튀검증가이드
However, because the second jump, the quadruple toe loop jump, was not performed properly,
it was processed as 2 rounds and was considered an unnecessary jump, so it was only given 0 points.
In the short program, solo two-turn jumps are not recognized as points,
except for double axels (two turns and a half).
Cha Jun-hwan treated the following flying camel spin to level 4 and then cleanly performed the difficult triple axel (three turns) attempted in the extra point section,
earning a GOE of 1.60 points and raising the mood.
Its Cha Jun-hwan, who made one mistake in the fourth round jump,
also left regrets in the remaining spin tasks.
Cha Jun-hwan received a level 3 in the change foot sit spin,
but the subsequent change foot combination spin only got a level 2, resulting in a loss of points.
The last task, step sequence, received level 4.
Kim Hyeon-gyeom (Han Advertising), who also competed,
ranked 8th in the short program with 75.24 points (TES 40.95 points, PCS 33.32 points).
Kim Hyun-gyeom, who confirmed his advancement to the Junior Grand Prix Finals in December this year by winning a silver medal in the second competition and winning the fifth competition in this season’s Junior Grand Prix,
participated in this competition to maintain his condition.
Hyun-gyeom Kim played smoothly, receiving a GOE of 0.32 points off his first jump task,
the Triple Axel, and then earning an additional 0.64 points in the Triple Flip-Triple Toe Loop Combination Jump.
He also received a GOE of 1.06 for the final jumping task, the Triple Lutz,
but was disappointed that he handled the change foot camel spin and flying sit spin at level 3.
Kim Hyun-gyeom, who cannot jump 4 rounds, did not make any major mistakes in the jump,
but was unable to improve his ranking.
