Toilet training ground. Then Březinová did not advance to the World Championship on a free ride

Figure skater Eliška Březinová did not advance to the World Championships in freestyle. After errors in the short program, it fell significantly behind the maximum from the Winter Olympics and took 27th place. It was 64 percent of the last twenty-four after getting 55.07 points.

Březinová’s short program has been published this season. At the Olympics, he improved his personal record to 64.31 points and even finished twelfth. This time he was unsuccessful in the opening combination, where he only placed a double toeloop after a triple lutz.

The big loss then came with the simplest element of the double axle jump, which the Czech national team jumped over with just one simple stroke. There is no use for this in short programs, since double or triple shafts are mandatory.

His appearance was marked by health problems. “I wanted to get up for the last workout in the morning but I couldn’t do it. My first step was to go to the toilet, it turned out to be a gut problem from bad food,” she said. Axel is very important. “I spent a lot of money, maybe about five points,” he said.

After a long time, he met Jozef Sabovčík, who had only recently been able to participate in his preparations remotely. “Jozef and I are planning things for the upcoming season, and especially now so that I can go to America and train with him again in person. We have a lot to say, so we spent the whole day together and took advantage of seeing ourselves personally. straight away. like this,” the Czech figure skater approached.

The opponents that followed did not allow Březinová to the final. The chance of using weaker competition to improve the life of 18th place at the World Cup thus disappeared for the Czech figure skater. Instead, for the first time since 2016, he won’t be rising to the top of a free ride event. Of the Czech national team, only dancers Natálie and Filip Taschler will be in action at this world championship.

Japan’s Olympic bronze medalist Kaori Sakamot led the competition, which lost three strong representatives of Russia. With a clean short program, he increased his score from Olympic competition and for the first time in his career he got more than 80 points. She beat him by 32 hundredths and built a more than five-point lead over Belgium’s Loena Hendrickx.

The only favorite to make mistakes is Japan’s Wakaba Higuchi. Attempts at the triple axel, which had not changed much, were fruitless, so it was a double axel with an error. It dropped him to seventh place by dropping more than five points on the medal. The third place belongs to America’s Mariah Bell, who increased her personal record to 72.55 points. Behind him are the Korean Jo Jong and another American Alysa Liu in the 64th century.

Free women’s rides are scheduled for Friday nights.
