Kiira Korpi (FIN) finished fifth in the first part of the Ladies event. Her routine included a triple loop-double toeloop combination and a triple flip (53.84 points).


European Figure Skating Championships – Day 5

Ladies, Free Skating

In what was an interesting Ladies event, Carolina Kostner of Italy was crowned the new European Champion. Sarah Meier (SUI) skated to the silver medal while Finland’s Kiira Korpi earned the bronze.

Korpi’s program to “Phantasia” with motives from “Phantom of the Opera” by Andrew Lloyd Webber, featured a triple Lutz-double toe-double loop combination, a triple loop-double toe and a triple Salchow-double toe as well as a level-four spiral and a level three combination spin. The 18-year-old Finn stumbled on her first double Axel, doubled loop and her second flip was underroated and downgraded. Korpi earned 97.35 points (46.79/50.56) and accumulated 151.19 points overall. She was ranked fourth in the Free Skating but nevertheless moved up from fifth to third.

Korpi still seemed stunned by what had happened. “I still can’t believe it, I never would have expected this after my performance. I could have done better but I’m happy with anyway. The first jump was a double, the flip was not clean and then there was the Axel… but otherwise it was OK. I can’t believe my marks, I didn’t expect them to be so good, especially as I know what I could be capable of, there is still room for improvement. I have had a nice feeling all week, I have been enjoying the buzz.”

フィギュアスケート欧州選手権/ワルシャワ(ポーランド)4日目

女子ショートプログラム

キーラ・コルピ(フィンランド)は、女子シングルの序盤を5位で終えた。3ループ+2トゥのコンビネーションと3フリップを含む演技で53.84ポイントを獲得。


フィギュアスケート欧州選手権/ワルシャワ(ポーランド)5日目

女子フリースケーティング

女子シングルで興味深かったことは、イタリアのカロリーナ・コストナーが新たな欧州チャンピオンに輝いたことだ。サラ・マイヤー(スイス)は銀メダル、フィンランドのキーラコルピは銅メダルを獲得した。

(中略)

アンドリュー・ロイド・ウェバーによる「オペラ座の怪人」をモチーフにした「ファンタジア」を使ったコルピのプログラムは、3ルッツ+2トゥ+2ループ、3ループ+2トゥ、3サルコウ+2トゥの各コンビネーションと、レベル4のスパイラル、レベル3のコンビネーションスピンが特徴だ。
フィンランドの18歳は初めの2アクセルが2ループになってしまい、2番目のフリップも回転不足でダウングレードになってしまった。コルピは97.35ポイント(46.79/50.56)を獲得し、合計で最終的に151.19ポイントになった。フリースケーティングとしては4位だったにもかかわらず5位から3位へと浮上した。

(中略)

コルピはまだ今回の出来事に呆然としているようだ。
「まだ信じられません。演技の後ではこんなこと想像もしていませんでした。もっとよく滑れたかもしれないけど、とにかくうれしいです。最初のジャンプがダブルで、フリップも決まらなかったし、あのアクセルも(注:着地で手を付いてしまった)…でも、ほかはOKでした。今回の自分の点数が信じられません。こんなにいいとは期待してなかったし、特に私自身が、まだまだ改善の余地があることを知っているので。でも、気分のいい1週間でした。歓声も楽しめましたし」
