After the summer break, synchro teams become busy again in preparation for competition season. Let us learn what is happening in Tokyo, Japan.
The Intermediate team, which has eight skaters, took the ice first. This time they debuted their Free Program skating to a variety of video game music. There were some apparent but minor errors, but the team held on to it till the end with no falls. Their line intersection went well, and they scored 37.75 points.
So far, they have only 11 skaters, and this time, they competed in the Short Program only. The travelling circle was called Level 4, and Move Elements were delightful to watch. The skaters demonstrated their solid foundation and delivered the program cleanly to earn 43.58 points.
Jingu teams demonstrated well in the past that they maintained steady improvement from one competition to another. Therefore we can eagerly look forward to more sophistication in the coming months. Stay tuned for updates as they progress toward Japan's national competition, which will be held in early February 2024.
