Valieva : On Friday, December 24, in St. Petersburg, within the framework of the Russian figure skating championship, competitions in the short program for women began – it is in this discipline that the most intense struggle for places in the Olympic team is expected. “MK-Sport” presents an online broadcast of this event.
Gushchina made a fall and is still in last place after the short program – 53.61 points.
The second group of skaters is opened by Ksenia Gushchina.
The second warm-up has started, where performances by Sofya Muravyova, Anna Shcherbakova, Elizaveta Tuktamysheva and Sofya Samodurova are waiting for us.
Aleksandra smiles after the short program, but is clearly upset. The triple axel did not work out and the track was triple level, but otherwise everything was in order.
For his hire, Trusova gets 74.21. This is less than that of Valieva and Samodelkina.
Trusova fell from a triple axel …
Let’s freeze … Alexandra Trusova came out on the ice, and in the application she has a triple axel. Let’s see what the “Russian Rocket” is capable of after a stress fracture of the foot.
Yes, the future of women’s single skating in Russia is great! Samodelkina is a confirmation of this. For her short program, Sophia receives 76.72 points.
On the ice of “Yubileiny” there is another rising star – 14-year-old Sophia Samodelkina. And the skater started her number with a trump card: a triple axel. And this is already an application for a high place!
What are our girls doing? Clean rental again! Now from Veronica Yametova. True, the complexity of the program does not even allow it to come close to the result of Valieva.
59.72 points – the result of Yametova.
Petrosyan lit it not like a child! The third consecutive net hire for women. Our men have a lot to learn.
Adelia earns 73.29 for the short program and is in second intermediate place.
On the ice of “Jubilee” the young star of Eteri Tutberidze’s group – Adelia Petrosyan. For a 14-year-old figure skater, this is an adult debut. Let’s see what she opposes to her older colleagues.
Valeria Shulskaya cleanly skated her short program, but she is still far from the level of Valieva. The fun is ahead!
Valieva performed a triple axel, a triple flip, as well as a cascade of triple lutz – a triple toe loop in the second half of the program.
As a result – 90.38 points. Above the world record, but for refereeing at the Russian championship this is in the order of things.
It was wow! Kamila Valieva opened the short program at the Russian Championship in St. Petersburg, and immediately raised the unimaginable bar. Her gentle program to the composition of the Canadian figure skater, Olympic champion of 2018 Eric Redford Storm, did not leave anyone indifferent.
Returning to the Yubileiny ice in St. Petersburg. In the very first warm-up, two favorites of the competition will perform: Kamila Valieva and Alexandra Trusova. The figure skaters have never crossed paths this year at some international competitions, and “Russian Rocket” missed a month altogether due to injury. Its shape is also legendary. The more interesting!
There are only a few seconds left before the start of the short program for women at the Russian Championship! While Alina Zagitova shares her emotions ahead of the competition, we will tell you who won the men.
And there was a real sensation: Mark Kondratyuk won the Russian championship, ahead of Mikhail Kolyada and Andrei Mozalev. The skaters have only made it difficult for the Russian Figure Skating Federation, which is to assemble the Olympic team in Beijing 2022.
The organizers of the Russian figure skating championship rightly decided that those whose competitions arouse the greatest interest should compete in prime time. And therefore, women’s single skating will complete the competition program for two days in a row: on Friday, December 24, at 18:20, the girls will show the short program, and on Saturday, December 25, at 18:00, the free skating competition will begin.
As you know, the order of performances in the free program is determined by the results of the short one, but on the first day the starting numbers are determined by lot. By the way, we have an excellent gallery about how figure skaters (mostly, of course, they – young men dressed quite monotonously) demonstrated their outfits at the drawing ceremony.
So, the draw was unexpected – the new main star of the group Eteri Tutberidze and the leader of the current season Kamila Valieva pulled out the first number. So we can expect that the very first skater to perform will set a bar in terms of the points scored that others may not be able to reach.
Here is the order in which the girls will go on the ice today:
1 – Kamila Valieva
2 – Valeria Shulskaya
3 – Adelia Petrosyan
4 – Veronica Yametova
5 – Sophia Samodelkina
6 – Alexandra Trusova
7 – Ksenia Gushchina
8 – Polina Sviridenko
9 – Sofia Muravyova
10 – Anna Shcherbakova
11 – Elizaveta Tuktamysheva
12 – Sofya Samodurova
13 – Anastasia Zinina
14 – Anastasia Morozova
15 – Maya Khromykh
16 – Ksenia Sinitsyna
17 – Arina Onishchenko
18 – Veronika Peterimova
Let us remind you that on Thursday, the first day of the Russian Championship, men and sports couples showed their short programs, and the dancers had a rhythm dance.
