    3. Very nice double axel
    4. Nice positions in her spins

    4. Nice double axel
    5. Good camel spin
    6. I like this footwork sequence but the arms seem very repetitive
    7. Nice position in her layback spins but she could work on really extending her Biellman

    4. Great fast rotation on her triple double combination
    5. Nice positions in her layback spin and great speed even through the Bielmann
    6. I like her footwork sequence but I’d like her to really extend through her free leg; it also seems to be performed toward the ice rather than the audience
    7. Nice position in her camel spin
    8. A decent spiral position during a musical highlight
    9. Great speed in her final combination spin but it takes her a little long to straighten her bottom leg in her leg catch position

    5. Her layback positions are gorgeous and so much speed–she needs to work on really extending her Biellman though
    6. Her chest looks a little low in her camel spin but the donut position is nice
    7. She’s really putting a lot into this footwork sequence and it’s nice to see it being executed with a lot of energy
    8. Her sit spin variation looks like it belongs to a contortionist and is very unique
