“Our girls are doing well! Kostornaya performed brilliantly. As for Trusova, she, of course, took a chance when she went to the axel in three and a half turns. She still could not jump at a warm-up. But she is smart, she has a character. Figure skaters cannot perform jumps in four turns in a short program, so you have to jump three and a half - you have to take something. I’m also glad for Zagitova, who has shown her maximum at the moment, ”said Bukin RT.
According to the results of the short program, Kostornaya, who set the world record (85.45), is the leader, Zagitova (79.60) takes the second place. Anna Shcherbakova - the third (78.27), and Trusova, despite the fall, became the fifth (71.45).
Earlier it was reported that Zagitova will be the last in the free program in the Grand Prix finals.
