wow I think that was one of the cleanest 3 loops in the back half of a combo. They usually look very short.
And her 2A managed to look underrotated to me :lol:

Anyways this program is much nicer and much better choreographed than Higuchi's snooze, even If she is one of my favorites.

I slept until 10:30 am, so I might make it through the ladies.
But not if we have generic girl music.

Aoki, Yuna 🇯🇵
Coach: Kensuke Nakaniwa, Makoto Nakata
Music: Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Ray

3Lz<+3Lo< - leg wrap
2A<

Fly Camel Spin 4
Ch Combo Spin 4

3F!
Step Sequence 3
Layback Spin
4 (3 after review)

The skating quality from a somewhat random Japanese skater is quite astounding - lovely moments in the program with the blades. The leg wrap does mar the jumps to some extent.

58.28 = 1st Place

I'm not a fan of this "Gatsby" music but Yuna was good. Lovely presentation.

Lutz and axel both looked a bit under to me.

She seemed very hesitant going into that loop. I almost thought she was just going to say nope and move on.

Arakawa who is commentating on Japanese TV, felt Yuna Aoki 3Lz+3Lo was too severely evaluated.
She said 3Lo as second jump is extremely difficult and if you rotate it completely, one will tend to over-turn, so slightly under-rotated is the only way to do it.
No wonder, nobody even tries +3Lo anymore.
Arakawa agrees with 2A under-rotation call.
