Liu becomes the first female skater (junior or senior) to land a 3A+3T combo in the short program (Kihira did it in the free).

This junior ladies field is shaping up to be very exciting, one mistake in the free could really remove someone from contention really. Interesting to see if Liu will retain her technical program which atm looks very, very risky: 2 4Lz and 2 3As, and 2 3Lz combos in the 2nd half. And to see if Valieva will get her 4T back after her injury so soon.

Pairs was a little disappointing imo, Sui/Han not performing to their best and most teams made small errors. Narrow lead over the young Russians though, FS will be very interesting to see if the Chinese pair can finally win their first GPF title.

Men's is up next.

From practice, Hanyu tried 4Lz, 4Lo and 4A (!!!).

He attempted 3 Quad Axels, fell on all 3. First two downgraded jumps, last one barely fully rotated..

Atm, his FS layout seems to be: 4Lz, 4Lo, 4S, 3Lz, 4T1Eu3F, 4T3T, 3A3Aseq. Not sure if he is planning to put in the 4A to replace the 3Lz since it's clearly not ready yet (although if anyone could land it in a pressure situation its Hanyu).

Nathan's layout appears to be 4F3T, 4Lz, 4T1Eu3F, 3A, 4S, 4T, 3A2T.

Poor Rika :( looked off in practice too... that fall on 3T had to come at the GPF of all places...

Her chances of medalling is now practically zero

Ladies Singles SP

1. Alyona KOSTORNAIA RUS: 85.45 SB, WR
3A, 3Lz, 3F3T

2. Alexandra TRUSOVA RUS: 71.45
3A(ur, fall), 3F, 3Lz3T

3. Anna SHCHERBAKOVA RUS: 78.27 SB
2A, 3F, 3Lz3Lo

4. Rika KIHIRA JPN: 70.71
3A(ftdown), 3F3T(ur, fall), 3Lo

5. Bradie TENNELL USA: 72.20
3Lz3T(ur), 2A, 3F

6. Alina ZAGITOVA RUS: 79.60 SB
3Lz3Lo, 2A, 3F

Trusova and Kihira 5th and 6th as it should be, since they had the messiest skates, but I would have swapped their positions imo. Sasha's PCS shouldn't even have been more than 30, let alone 33 for that skate + a fall on that 3A. Kostornaia was amazing as usual, broke the WR again and her PCS is already at 36, well deserved.

As painful as it is for me as a Rika fan, she really didn't deserve more than 70 points today imo. Neither did Trusova. Shcherbakova probably shouldn't have gotten higher than 75 imo, 34 PCS for her is a bit much considering how she's probably still very junior-like in her skating (same for Sasha).
