Campionatul Mondial de patinaj artistic 2015 – Finala in proba masculina

Ultima finala din cadrul campionatului mondial de patinaj artistic editia 2015 s-a finalizat cu acordarea medaliilor in proba baietilor.

Noul campion al lumii este triplul campion european Javier Fernandez! Dragul nostru spaniol a reusit sa isi intreaca prietenul si colegul de antrenamente, Yuzuru Hanyu, castigand astfel primul aur mondial al Spaniei la patinaj… cu un program extrem de solid din punct de vedere tehnic si cu o determinare de poveste! :D

Fostul campion mondial este acum in postura de vicecampion mondial. Yuzuru Hanyu, dupa doua greseli la sariturile cvadruple (a dublat cel ce trebuia sa fie un cvadruplu salcov in debutul programului si a cazut la cvadruplu tulup), a scapat printre degete medalia de aur. Acestea au fost insa si singurele momente negative ale programului sau, dupa care a mers ceas din punct de vedere tehnic. Cat priveste partea artistica, nu avem ce sa ii reprosam nicicand.

Medalia de bronz a fost castigata de catre Denis Ten, prezent astazi intr-o forma de exceptie, cu o evolutie extraordinara! A avut o structura de program foarte dificila, dar a prezentat-o cu o eleganta si o forta de invidiat: cvadruplu tulup (cu un mic stepping out), cvadruplu tulup + triplu tulup superb executate (perfecta postura si aterizare), triplu axel + dublu tulup, triplu axel (cu stepping out, dar dintr-o intrare dificila), triplu flip + triplu salcov, triplu lutz, triplu rittberger, dublu axel. Pe langa acestea, a avut o secventa de pasi excelenta! A avut cel mai bine punctat program liber.

O superclasare neasteptata pentru Jason Brown, reprezentatul Statelor Unite, care s-a impus fara sarituri cvadruple in ambele programe, dar cu interpretare foarte buna si piruete de nivel ridicat.

O performanta extraordinara si pentru canadianul Nam Nguyen, campion mondial la juniori, astazi clasat pe locul 5 la debutul sau la mondialele de seniori.

Printre cei mai fericiti oameni din patinoarul de la Shanghai se numara fara doar si poate si Brian Orser care se poate mandri cu o performanta incredibila: trei din primii 5 sportivi aflati in clasamentul final mondial din acest sezon sunt elevii sai… printre care campionul si vicecampionul mondial! Toate laudele pentru acest fantastic antrenor!

Campionatul Mondial de patinaj artistic 2015 – Finala in proba feminina

Ultima zi de concurs la Shanghai, in cadrul Campionatului Mondial de patinaj artistic, a inceput cu programul liber al probei feminine.

S-au decernat medaliile, s-au aflat campioanele si Rusia are dublu motiv de sarbatoare! Dupa 10 ani, campioana mondiala este din nou o tanara rusoaica! Titlul mondial al Irinei Slutskaia, din 2005, este urmat acum de cel al Elizavetei Tuktamyshevei, eleva lui Alexei Mishin. Pe ritmuri orientale, Liza a aterizat sapte sarituri triple si doua sarituri dublu axel, a avut doua piruete de nivel 4 si secventa de pasi de nivelul 3.

Argintul a fost castigat de catre dubla vicecampiona la Four Continents, japoneza Satoko Miyahara, care a reusit sa isi seteze si un nou personal best cu aceasta evolutie. Singurele dificultati intalnite au fost la executarea triplului lutz, la care a fost aproape de o cazatura la aterizare. Restul elementelor au fost executate cu multa siguranta si eleganta.

Bronzul a trecut tot in palmaresul Rusiei, castigat de catre simpatica Elena Radionova. Dupa cateva ezitari la unele sarituri (s-a impiedicat la dublu axel si a dublat un triplu tulup), Elena nu a reusit cel mai bun program liber al sau, insa a fost puternica si a trecut peste greseli, iar programul scurt i-a ridicat punctajul pentru a se putea situa in final pe cea de-a treia treapta a podiumului.

Campionatul Mondial de patinaj artistic 2015 – Finala in proba de dans

Cat de repede trece timpul cand il petreci in compania frumosilor patinatori. Iata-ne ajunsi deja la mijlocul Campionatului mondial de patinaj artistic. Astazi ne-au incantat perechile din proba de dans cu evolutiile din programul liber… si ce spectacol ne-au oferit!

La finalul probei am aflat si noii campioni mondiali… Campionii europeni, Gabriella Papadakis si Guillaume Cizeron, au devenit astazi si campioni mondiali! Cu aceeasi splendoare de program, pe acordurile lui Mozart, au incantat arbitrii si au urcat, de pe locul 4 pe care se situasera dupa programul scurt, pe prima treapta a podiumului. Aproape toate elementele tehnice ale programului semnat de francezi au fost notate cu cel mai inalt nivel, nivelul 4, toate punctate si cu GOE pozitive. Cat despre componente, si aici au impresionat, avand medii peste 9 la toate cele 5 componente ale programului, inclusiv 4 note de 10.

Argintul mondial a fost acordat reprezentantilor Statelor Unite, Madison Chock si Evan Bates.

Ultima treapta a podiumului a fost ocupata de canadienii Kaitlyn Weaver si Andrew Poje, vicecampionii mondiali de anul trecut.

Campionatul Mondial de patinaj artistic 2015 – Proba feminina, programul scurt

Competitia din Shanghai a continuat astazi cu proba feminina, programul scurt, dominata de tinerele rusoaice si japoneze prezente la start.

In pozitia de lider dupa prima etapa se afla Elizaveta Tuktamysheva, campioana europeana en-titre si vicecampioana Rusiei, care s-a impus cu un avantaj de peste 8 puncte in fata conationalei sale, Elena Radionova. Intre cele doua reprezentante ale Rusiei a fost un adevarat duel intregul sezon: daca la campionatul national si la Skate America, Elena era medaliata cu aur si Elizaveta cu argint, la finala ISU Grand Prix si campionatul european au schimbat locurile. Iata-le din nou confruntandu-se intr-o competitie si aceasta prima etapa a fost in favoarea Elizavetei… reusita datorita si unui superb triplu axel din debutul programului, executat perfect, ce i-a dat aripi pe tot parcursul evolutiei. Finala ne va arata care dintre cele doua rusoaice va fi castigatoarea duelului si cine va fi campioana mondiala.

Pe locul trei in clasamentul intermediar se afla Satoko Miyahara, dubla vicecampioana la Four Continents si noua campioana a Japoniei, urmata de alte doua conationale, Kanako Murakami si Rika Hongo. Tara gazda are si ea motive de mandrie, locul 6 fiind ocupat de reprezentanta sa, tanara de 18 ani, Zijun Li, care si-a setat astazi un nou season best.

O zi cu mai putin noroc a fost insa pentru reprezentantele Statelor Unite, Polina Edmunds, Gracie Gold si Ashley Wagner, acestea situandu-se pe pozitiile 7, 8 si 11, dar si pentru medaliata cu bronz de la CE 2015, Anna Pogorilaya (RUS), careia o ratare la triplu rittberger i-a adus doar un loc 9 dupa programul scurt.

Clasamentul dupa programul scurt este:

1 Q Elizaveta TUKTAMYSHEVA RUS 77.62 video

Bolero – Maurice Ravel

11083678_10152779781243450_5031790525063567343_n

“When I landed the triple Axel, I got goosebumps and I thought – is this a dream or did I really just do the triple Axel at the World Championships? I had to pull myself together after this and I was very focused or the triple Lutz and the triple toe-triple toe. It was the first time for me to do a clean short with the triple Axel. It was a risk to do the triple Axel in the short program, but figure skating has to evolve.” – Elizaveta Tuktamysheva

2 Q Elena RADIONOVA RUS 69.51 video

De mi vera te fuistes (Seguiriyas) – Pepe Romero
Ain’t It Funny – Jennifer Lopez

“I am very pleased with my performance and that I was able to overcome myself and land all my jumps in my debut at the World Championships.” – Elena Radionova

3 Q Satoko MIYAHARA JPN 67.02 New personal best video

The Magic Flute – Wolfang Amadeus Mozart

“I am very happy to get my best score at my first worlds. My goal of coming here was to receive a personal best score for both short and free program. I was happy that I was able to achieve that in the short program. Being in third place as a result of that came as a surprise.” – Satoko Miyahara

Campionatul mondial de patinaj artistic 2015 – Proba de perechi, programul scurt

Prima zi de competitie in China, la campionatul mondial de patinaj artistic, a continuat cu programul scurt al probei de perechi.

Clasamentul intermediar este urmatorul:

1 Q Meagan DUHAMEL / Eric RADFORD CAN 76.98 New personal best video

“Un peu plus haut” – Ginette Reno

1897852_10152778253178450_7404966577689787410_n „We are at one of the biggest competitions of our career and we’re heading into the long program for the very first time in first place. The goal remains the same each time we go out and that’s just keeping everything in a little bubble between me and Meagan. We know we can do our job in the moment, because we’ve done it in training and in past competitions. Having a great skate in the short helps us feel more relaxed and also our scores allow us more freedom. Overall we feel very confident going into tomorrow.” – Eric Radford

Nici un munte nu pare a fi prea inalt pentru Meagan si Eric in acest sezon. Dupa ce au castigat campionatul national, Skate Canada, Trofeul NHK, finala ISU Grand Prix, Four Continents, mai pe scurt toate competitiile la care au participat in sezonul 2014-2015, cei doi canadieni sunt la Shanghai doar pentru un singur lucru: titlul mondial! Planul le merge ca pe roate, caci si evolutia de astazi a fost splendida. Partea tehnica extrem de bine lucrata, cu elemente dificile, le-a adus multe puncte avans fata de adversarii lor. Au inceput programul cu un triplu twist, fara nici o ezitare, si apoi un triplu lutz (!) in paralel de poveste, urmat de triplu lutz aruncat, secventa de pasi, pirueta, spirala mortii, secventa de pasi toate de nivel 4. Doar la partea artistica a fost o mica diferenta de 0,20 puncte intre ei si perechea chineza Pang & Tong, in favoarea acestora din urma. Viitorul suna bine pentru Meagan si Eric.

2 Q Qing PANG / Jian TONG CHN 72.59 New Season Best

Moonflower – Secret Garden

11008419_742763195843248_1556436192319530080_n

„We are so happy with our performance. It is a new short program after the Four Continents and we worried about skating on home ice a little bit. We are glad that we nailed everything today and hope to keep it together tomorrow.” – Jian Tong

We just wanted to give two good performances to the fans before we retire. This World Championship is very precious. The coming back journey was not easy, but we are happy to be here. Today we’ve done one good program and we hope tomorrow we can do another.” – Qing Pang

Inca o data, Qing si Jian dau o lectie de patinaj, de eleganta si de maiestrie tuturor patinatorilor si fanilor. Iata ca exista patinaj la nivel competitional si dupa varsta de 35 ani… si la ce nivel!!!

3 Q Wenjing SUI / Cong HAN CHN 71.63 New Season Best

Stray Cat Strut – Brian Setzer

„This year we had all our competitions abroad, so it is our first time to compete in China this season. I am so excited about it. The audience encouraged me a lot, so I wanted to do my best to give something back to the audience. The performance today is almost what we do in training. The connection between the audience and us was very strong.” – Wenjing Sui
