The suspense in Finland for the Worlds qualifications
Team Fintastic is leading the competition but the differences between the teams are small. (Ville Vairinen - 2021)
The top five Finnish teams are competing for the World Championships this weekend. Teams skated their short programs on Saturday in Espoo Metro Arena without audience, as usual this season.
Dream Edges Junior succeeded well and also had a faultless performance. Their "A child's road in the wilderness of the earth" earned 67.38 points, and the team was extremely happy with the result.
Valley Bay Synchro finished in third place after short programs. Their "The Giving Tree" program had a good flow, and the team skated softly, getting a total score of 66.36.
A slight error ruined the Intersection Element of Team Mystique, and they had to settle for fifth place. The program “Last Breath of Winter” gathered a total score of 64.04 points.
Qualifications: how does it work?
"Team Finland 2" will be selected based on this calculation: at first, the average of two best qualification competitions of three (Nationals and WJSSC) is counted. To this average is added the total points for Junior Worlds qualification. The team with the highest total score will be selected (excluding the winner of the WJSSC qualification). In the event of a tie, the team with the higher overall score in the Junior Worlds qualification will be placed.
At the moment, Team Mystique has the highest average (174.92) followed by Valley Bay Synchro (169.39).
The winners of the day were Team White Pearl (KKJT) in Basic Novice with a total score of 62.07 (No ISU scores) points, Team Sympatique (HSK) in Juveniles earning 35.13 points, and Crystal Illusions (SaiML) in Junior B scoring 47.71 points.
