Kiira Korpi´s new programs are SP Somewhere over the rainbow, a piano version, choreo by Shae-Lynn Bourne. Opens with 3t-3t, which seems to be secure now.

LP Evita, choreo by David Wilson.
There was a test skate yesterday. Kiira is in very good shape. Also Beata Papp is doing 3t-3t and using her amazing height very well.

Laura Lepistö is injured, she fell in the practice and has internal bleeding in her hip, so she is resting right now. But her coach said that these kind of troubles hear to an athlete´s life.

Sounds very promising. Has Kiira attempted 3-3 since 2006 at all?

I hope Lepisto recovers soon.

She is mature enough to be careful not to go too early to the practices again.

That was the message I heard, too. Sometimes an injury can even be a good thing, and she has both a good head on her shoulders plus the wisest team behind her.

She has, in practices, and succesfully. Then the injuries came. Let´see:encore:

I guess so. And hope, of course. As Maija said, she is mature enough to take time for recovery and also has a wise team behind her.

She is also studying now, in Aalto university´s business department.

Funny to think that apparently the 3toe is a strong jump for Kiira at the moment because last season it was the one she really struggled with.

(I'll bet a $ that she's using Don't Cry for me Argentina in the FP, right? :shuffle:)

Perhaps mixed with "Requiem for a dream"? :saint:

:yikes:

She is too pretty to inflict us such ugly punishment :drama:

I hope Lepistö recovers quickly

That's very likely since she already had her previous short program two seasons in a row.

Anyway, things should be interesting for Beata and other Finnish junior girls this season because now that Susanna and Jenni both have retired, there will be an open spot for Euros behind Laura and Kiira for the one who steps up her game. Should both motivate and put extra pressure on all the girls this season.

I'm really excited about this. I hope it does affect the junior ladies and how they skate this season! A good experience for the girl who makes it.

Good new on Kiira. The last couple of seasons haven't been easy. I was actually going to as about Beata's 3-3 as I remember either reading it from somewhere or someone telling me that she's got a 3-3, but I wan't sure whether it was just a warped dream.

Hope it isn't the Finnish girls' destiny, that one skater is performs below par due to injury. A quick recovery for Laura, please.

Because I can't wait to see some skating this season (although the JGPs did already start :cheer:) I just uploaded some random videos of some of the Finnish junior and novice girls on YouTube. Last season performances of course. For some reason I hadn't put them up earlier but here you go now - in case there's someone interested. :P

ETA: I guess a link (http://www.youtube.com/user/Hannaxxxxxx) could be useful as well :P
