Good to see Craine & Han earn World TES qualification scores.So Brooklee and Kailani are within a point of each other based on
Challengers. Nationals will be interesting. I love a hard fought battle - it raises everyone’s game.
The more I think about it, the more it makes sense how a lot of athletes who train towards their Olympic dreams, feel absolutely drained by the next season. Especially those who are building towards another run, knowing they have four years to do it all over again. Finding the drive and energy can be physically and mentally taxing.It is also a long flight from Montreal to Sydney and the jet lag is a killer. One bright note is Katia’s triple toe looks way, way better than last year.
Such a shame.Sydney is going to lose one of its rinks next year - Macquarie Ice Rink (where Nationals was recently held) is going to be demolished for an expanded transport hub. This will put a lot of pressure on the other suburban rinks (another rink closed in 2017) and Macquarie is one that is more central in terms of population.
There are two petitions to save the rink:
Australian Nationals were held in early December in Sydney.Did I miss Aussie Nationals? Has it been decided who will go to Worlds?
No idea. But in all likelihood, I would say, 'yes'. Han delivered a career best short program score, and the highest ever for an Australian lady, at her Challenger Series event.Kailani Craine and Brooklee Han have very close SB scores as of today, so will 4CCs actually be used as world team selection?
