Team Event – Woman – long Program

Osmond (CAN)

–    Double axel/triple toe
–    Fell on the triple sal
–    Missed most of Osmond’s score to stream not working 

–    Double flip, should have been a triple
–    Nice triple toe/double toe/double toe combination
–    Two footed double axel
–    Good step sequence
–    Nice spin combination
–    Needs more stretch in her spiral
–    Score: 110.73

–    Good speed into her triple Lutz/triple toe combination
–    Nice double axel/triple toe, possibly two foot on the axel

Thoughts:
–    Julia just brings the house down with that performance and it’s well deserved (unlike Plushenko).
–    A little underwhelmed about the woman, save for Julia.

Russia
Canada
USA (sealed Bronze with Gold’s performance)
