YOG is currently ongoing.

No 3As in the SP from either Mana Kawabe nor Young You.

In general was a really high level competition with most skaters performing near their best, only a few slip-ups and unfortunately one of them was the home skater.

Young was the best skater of the night and deservedly went into first, she could have broken 80 if she had attempted and hit her 3A cleanly imo. Great to see that the judges are giving her the PCS she deserves, and not favouring the Russians here (maybe because none of them are coached by Eteri).

SP FINAL
1. Young You KOR 73.51
2. Kseniia Sinitsyna RUS 71.77
3. Anna Frolova RUS 69.07
4. Mana Kawabe JPN 65.84
5. Alina Urushadze GEO 63.10
6. Alessia Tornaghi ITA 62.19
7. Audrey Shin USA 60.36

Yuma Kagiyama has upset the odds and beat out the two Russians to win the YOG men's gold.

He was 4 points behind Samsonov and 7 points behind Mozalev, and put in one of the best free skates of his career to win the title: 4T, 3Lo, 4T2T, 3A1Eu2S, 3F3T, 3Lz, 3A - he ended up winning the title over Mozalev by 1.5 points. Mozalev's fall on a jump pass cost him the title.

For the 2nd time this season Mozalev is beaten by a Japanese.

FINAL
G Yuma Kagiyama JPN 239.17
S Andrei Mozalev RUS 237.94
B Daniil Samsonov RUS 215.21
4 Aleksa Rakic CAN 205.23
5 Younghyun Cha KOR 199.12

Great result. Mozalev is hard to watch. Kagiyama on the other hand is wonderful.

You Young has won the YOG Gold with a stellar performance: 3A, 3Lz3T, 3Lo, 3F, 3Lz1Eu3S, 2A2T, 3F.

It was a messy competition all around though with only 4 skaters going clean (ie. no falls).

Mana Kawabe was robbed of the bronze imo, much better than Anna Frolova even though both had falls. Deserved winner overall though and Kseniia Sinitsyna's skating is beautiful.

The Russians sweep silver and bronze in the singles events.

FINAL
G Young You KOR 214.00
S Kseniia Sinitsyna RUS 200.03
B Anna Frolova RUS 187.72
4 Mana Kawabe JPN 185.22
5 Alina Urushadze GEO 179.50

The YOG ladies competition was a disaster. Painful stuff.

Switching topics, can anybody with a good knowledge of FS history tell me a skater with less artistry than Trusova? Putting her hands up to her face is about as good as it gets with her.

Yeah ... I agree with you on Trusova's little amount of artistry. BTW. I find the comment section under this EX of Trusova at Skate Canada pretty hilarious.
"She's probably advertising for Rexona black and white" :D That move she does in the tumbnail as well as in her free skate is pretty impressive either way. It is not a move that can be counted as a technical element so unless it is in ChSeq... one can say that it is pretty artistic in some way.

Brezina had an amazing SP.

Daniel Grassl has balls of steel - 4Lo3T, 3A and then a 2nd half 4Lz. Unfortunately fell, but at least he tried.
