Musketeers who started the competition created a cheerful and hose atmosphere in the ice rink with their program “Light at the end of Tunnel”. Although there was no single error in their program, the team placed 4th after the short program and got 64.60 points.

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?
The competition will continue on Sunday with the free skating section. The winner of this qualification will be "Team Finland 1" at the Junior Worlds 2022.

"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 second qualification of the Interclub series is also taking place this weekend in Espoo
On Saturday competed the Section 2 of Basic Novice, Junior B and Juveniles series. The competitions of Adult, Masters and Senior B series were cancelled due to the Covid-19.

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.
