South Korean figure skating talent Hwang Jung-ryul (Sang Myung-joong), born in 2010, impressed in her debut at a major international event.
Hwang earned a technical score (TES) of 58.00, artistic score (PCS) of 54.33, and one deduction for a total score of 111.33 in the women’s single free skate at the fourth competition of the 2023 International Ice Skating Union (ISU) Figure Skating Junior Grand Prix in Osaka, Japan, on Saturday.
He added a short program score of 61.09 points for a final total of 172.42 points, good for fifth place.
Hwang fell during his first performance task, a triple toe-loop-triple toe-loop combination jump, but he got up and kept going.
He didn’t falter much. He executed the triple lutz-double toe-loop-double loop combination jump perfectly, and on the double axel jump, he made up for the missed triple toe-loop on the first task.
The final jump of the first half, a triple loop and flying change foot combination spin (level 4), was also perfect.
In the second half, which carries a 10% bonus, he showed some stamina issues with a triple lutz and a triple flip-double axel sequence jump that was judged to have insufficient rotation, but he showed great focus by executing the final jump, a triple salco, perfectly.
He also earned praise for his performance, completing all of his subsequent nonjumping tasks at the highest level of difficulty, Level 4.
Han Hee-soo (Sunil Girls’ Middle School), who competed in the same event, finished 11th with 145.65 points.
The title went to Japan’s Mao Shimada (213.86 points), who won the Junior World Championships and Junior Grand Prix Final last season.
In the ice dance free dance at the same venue, Kim Ji-nee and In-moo (Gyeonggi Ice Sports Federation) scored 72.35 points to finish 10th out of 12 teams with a combined rhythmic dance total of 120.90 points. 슬롯사이트
