Ladies SP results are up!
New personal best for Carolina!!!! And who is this Kirsten Frank??!?
Kerstin Frank has been the top Austrian lady for a while now - she finished 12th at Europeans and 21st at 2012 Worlds. Her ISU bio: http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00008103.htm
Kostner's score won't count as an ISU PB/SB because this is a Senior B.
Yet another reason I need to catch up with all Euro vids ASAP but I remember her from Worlds now that you mentioned it, that's a mighty good score for her!
And I had no idea senior b don't count for SB/PB... Thanks!
In Worlds qualifying last year she beat her LP best by about 20 points. She's definitely moving up. But her SP music is the most version of Queen I've heard in years.
She's a big, powerful skater. At Euros she skated right after wispy little Finnish Julia, who looks like a strong wind could blow her away, and the contrast was startling.
But like some other bigger girls I remember, Kerstin is graceful and jumps well.
In Kerstin's case, it also helps that she upgraded her combo from 3toe-2toe to a 3lutz-2toe, as well. This is the first time she's done a lutz as her combo this season, I believe. Always had a soft spot for power and ice coverage, so it's nice to see her doing well this year
eta: It was her first 3lutz-2toe this season. She confirmed it on FB.
she is happy I`ve found this
weeeeeeeeeeee Caro getting a 10!!!
^Thanks! Didn't realize Kerstin had an official page now. Just in time for Sochi =).
Haven't seen this performance yet, but I love her programs this year. Definitely second the wheee!
No Youtube videos so far. Does anyone recall last year what was the timing that they went online?
I think they were online the next day or within two days. For example, Kostner's SP was uploaded on March 10th and ladies' short was held March 9th.
Last year the Senior videos were being uploaded during the event, IIRC. Hope they will show up at some point!
Nice to see Clara Peters blogging from THe Hague for her federation's site: http://isai.ie/

Thanks for the info!
So Anne Line Gjersem and Kaat van Daele made the SP minimums?
I think they both had them based on the new 26 requirement from Euros. 27.16 for van Daele and 26.5 for Gjersem. Doesn't hurt their confidence they both got them again, though. Hopefully, they can get the LP mins now .
Yep you're right, it's the free skate score that they need. I didn't bother checking which one it was. Then again, if I had thought about it just a little bit I would've realized it has to be the free because that score is a lot tougher to make.
ISU didn't make any easier to keep track of scores by changing their requirements. They're both close with 42 and 43 scores. It would take some programs, but it's not impossible.
Yep Gjersem and Van Daele already had the SP scores, they are going for the LP score here. Fleur Maxwell also met the SP score previously and is still in the running.. All the others have unfortunately failed and definetely won't be at worlds

38 tes for carolina with 3lo and 3t+3t?
A few photos from yesterday
Thank God, Carolina's got a new SP dress. At least I hope it's for the SP. Got to count for a coupke of positive GoEs...
We have some technical issues uploading to YouTube. The SP yesterday will be uploaded but probably without music. We are shortly before the start of Senior Ladies FS now and hope to be back on track soon.
thank you to keep us updated
can't wait to see Carolinas perfect performance
Carolina's short no audio, but still is a pleasure to watch this program
Did she wear that dress a few seasons ago? It looks very familiar. The quality of her elements is -worthy sometimes.
she had it at Italian nationals and at Golden Spin
