Jenni Saarinen’s debut at the World Figure Skating Championships ended in two parts.
Figure skater Jenni Saarisen the well-started World Championship contract turned into a downfall in a freestyle skating event at the Globen in Stockholm. Saarinen, who started skating on Friday 14 instead of the short program, crashed four times in her free program and scored only 83 points.
Errors and crashes dropped Saarinen’s entire set to tail 24th.
Saarinen’s program started perfectly with a successful triple flip. After that, however, he crashed three times in jumps and once in a series of steps.
Saarinen, who represents Kooveeta and is currently training in Oberstdorf, said that elements of the program were exchanged for new places during the competition.
– Hard to say what happened today. It seems that the program just went ahead, but I didn’t stay with it myself, 22-year-old Saarinen pondered In the release of the Figure Skating Association.
Saarinen’s performance was twofold. However, he achieved the most important thing, as the short program record points of 63.54 guaranteed the World Cup debutant access to the top 24 free programs.
– In this competition, my focus was on the short program. Succeeding in that was my first step forward. The biggest lesson for me was that with a quality and even easier program you can go a long way, you don’t always have to try the hardest.
The 16-year-old, representing the Russian Figure Skating Federation, won the World Championship Anna Shtsherbakova, which led the race after the short program. Elizaveta Tuktamisheva and Aleksandra Trusova complemented the Russians ’triple victory.
The harsh fate of Turkkila and Versluis
Juulia Turkkilan and Matthias Versluisin the ice dance sky was bitterly interrupted by rhythm dance. Turkkila and Versluis skated in Stockholm with a rhythm dance score of 64.59, which qualified for 21st place.
The Finns dropped out of Saturday’s free dance leg in the first pair. An additional 1.95 points would have been required for the final seat.
The pair’s points pot was decisively vaccinated by the failure of the final in the last rotary draw, in which Versluis did not get the pair in the correct position.
– We had a good and confident feeling of ice throughout the program. In lifting, Juulia started to spin a little too hurriedly. The timing suffered, and there wasn’t enough force on the lift to get the movement spinning, the couple lamented in the release.
