Figure Skating Kim Chae-yeon, 1st Place in Nephela Memorial Short… Lee Hae-in 3rd place
Yoo Young-eun ranked 4th in short… Women’s single free skating postponed on the 30th
Korean figure skating women’s singles prospect Kim Chae-yeon (Suri High School)
took first place in the 31st Nephela Memorial Short Program,
an International Skating Union (ISU) Challenger Series competition.
Kim Chae-yeon received 67.42 points, including 38.04 technical score (TES), 30.38 artistic score (PCS),
1 deduction point in the short program of the competition held in Bratislava, Slovakia on the 29th (Korean time).
Canada’s Madeline Schizas (36.90 points in TES, 30.52 points in PCS) also received the same score of 67.42 as Chae-yeon Kim, but was ranked second in the TES score. 온라인카지노사이트
Lee Hae-in (Sehwa Girls’ High School), a silver medalist at the World Championships in March of this year,
ranked 3rd with 66.08 points, and Yoo Young (63.88 points) ranked 4th.
The free skating, which determines the medal color, will be held on the evening of the 30th.
This competition is the Challenger Series, which is one level lower than the Grand Prix Series.
Kim Chae-yeon, Lee Hae-in, and Yoo Young participated in this competition to maintain their condition and check their skills ahead of the 2023-2024 ISU Figure Senior Grand Prix Series starting in October.
Junior Grand Prix
Kim Chae-yeon, who won a bronze medal at the ISU Junior Grand Prix Final last December,
jumped with a double Axel and triple Lutz-triple toe loop combination jump.
The jumping task consisted of a triple flip.
Although he was assessed as attention (caution of edge use) in the triple flip,
he received additional points in the remaining two jump tasks.
However, it was unfortunate that Kim Chae-yeon received a deduction of 1 because she violated the time limit for her performance, but she came out in first place.
Lee Hae-in was judged to have insufficient rotation in the triple Lutz-triple toe loop combination jump after the double Axel,
which was the first jumping task, but finished the jumping element by performing a clean triple flip.
Yoo Young, who struggled due to injury last season,
began to control his condition by choosing a double axel instead of his special move,
a triple axel (three aerial turns and a half).
In the triple Lutz-double toe loop combination jump, the Lutz jump was judged to be a quarter landing (when the jump rotation speed was less than 90 degrees),
but the subsequent triple flip jump landed safely.
Like Kim Chae-yeon, Yoo Young also received a deduction of 1 point for ‘time violation’.
All three players handled the spin performance and step sequence at level 4, the highest level of difficulty.
