Italy’s Rebecca Tarlazzi captured the Ladies’ Short Program. Performing to “Il Terzo Fuochista” by Tosca, the reigning world champion executed a clean program and earned 64.73. Just a little behind we find Rebecca’s fellow citizen, Letizia Ghiroldi, who scored 64.12 with a smoothed and graceful choreography. It’s definitely a tight race for these two elite skaters! Carla Escrich Sole from Spain follows in third position, with good components as well.
With regards to Senior men, the Italian Luca Lucaroni sits pretty in the standings after the short program. He started off with a bang, landing an incredible combo jump (triple flip-triple-toeloop-nj-triple loop). He has 88.45 points with the Spanish Sergio Canales Rodriguez at a currently quite distant 80.34. Sergio did a great performance too and just like another Spanish athlete, Pere Marsinyach Torrico, had an amazing support from their audience who literally liven up the venue while their heroes where on the rink.
Precision competition concluded this Thursday’s night with some funny, colourful and engaging executions. Dream Team from Germany took home the gold with a performance called “Battle-cry”, based on the video game of the same name. The group executed beautiful and creative intersections and a very precise travelling element. Germany’s best group topped with a comfortable margin the Argentinian one, Roller dreams, which got the silver. With their “Diosas de la India” the skaters brilliantly entertained the audience with some Hindi, catchy music. On the third position we find Italy’s Precision Team Albinea with the theme “Irish Tales”. The group stood out with a particularly good linear line and a beautiful choreography by Daniel Morandin.
Let’s wait for tomorrow now! Competitions will go on and we’ll have the pleasure to see Senior Pairs perform their short programs.
