NRW Trophy would have been a competition like others if one of the greatest skater of all times wasn't attending it. Yuna Kim is headlining the event along with Savchenko/Szolkowy, but the focus is mainly on the Korean skater as she competes for the first time in a year and a half. She nailed her triple lutz-triple toe and triple flip. She scored 72.27 (video link)
Ksenia Makarova did a good job in her short program today. She nailed her triple toe-triple toe combo and her triple loop. She scored 59.55.
Mae Berenice Meite skated well too taking advantage of her great jumping ability landing a triple toe-triple toe and a high triple flip. 54.56
Joshi Helgesson is 0.44 points above her sister Viktoria also skating here. Performing to a nicely choreographed Cirque du Soleil program, she landed a triple salchow-double loop with a little turn between te two jumps and a tano triple lutz. 54,42
Viktoria put some efforts in the landing of her triple toe-triple toe combo but later on popped a scheduled triple loop. 53,98
