o   I know this music…

o   Okay jump combo but two footed the first one and wobbled out of the second

o   She reminds me a little in the face a little like Nastia

o   Popped another jump.

o   She has some nice moments in this footwork sequence

o   Looked like she completely changed that three jump combo… singled the last two jump

o   Almost didn’t make the ending
