After a very dramatic first minute of Free Skating, Kiira pulled the rest of the program together well. She got 102.90 points from FS and was naturally disappointed. Total points of 166.40 were enough for the third place, so not a catastrophe after all! Kiira got her second bronze medal from the Euros since 2007! Congrats!

Just only one regret: she fails the GP Finals in Beijing for two – damned – points! What a pity…
But this isn’t so important, at the moment…
Kiira did it! Finally!
She deserved such a satisfaction.

[Eric Bompard] Kiira is 1st after SP!

This means Kiira will have to win Bompard, even this couldn’t be enough, if Alyssa will be on the podium there.
But, at the moment, maybe her real target should be realize two clean programs, especially the FS and 3T+3T combination, looking forward next fixtures (Nationals and Bern). No one has shown being in a very good shape so far, so I think Kiira will have her chances, in those competitions.

C’mon Kiira, skate your heart out!
