    That 3A is a beauty. Want her to land one like that in her next competition. Here's hoping!

    Is it just me? That link takes me to the wrong time in the video? (by about 2 hours!)

    This one works for me...

    Whatever - it was a great 3A...!

    Today was first day of practice at Egna, Rika did her LP RT , it seems it was pretty rough but it is okay as she was probably tired and still needs time to get used to new ice.
    rt: 3A fall, 2A3T, 2F // 2Lz hand down, 2Lo, 3Lz2T2Lo, 3S.

    Rika Kihira stats on 3A: 4 popped, 2 falls, 6 clean, 1 step out. She nailed 4 consecutive amazing 3A in a row. Impressive source
    As a bonus a video of her amazing 3A today


    I hope she can slay this competition and make JGPF in Japan.

    soooo excited to see her execute 3A cleanly and possibly as combo, really want to see her at JGPF (but want to see Nana there too ) good luck Rika!!

    Two things I dream to see in JGPF: Rika landing her 3A in a combination and Trusova landing her 4S. Now that would be an epic junior ladies Final!

    Go, Rika!

    Great skate by Rika 67.72, just 0.04 away from her PB. Everything is so nice and easy in this program, I especially enjoyed the spins, they improved so much!

    I discovered this thing called gif maker.
    Here are some gifs of Rika's SP.

    https://media.giphy.com/media/l1J9zL...knsI/giphy.gif - her very centered spin
    https://media.giphy.com/media/l1J9Hi...gIJa/giphy.gif - her great 2A
    https://media.giphy.com/media/l1J9Kt...usYE/giphy.gif - the happy ending and that beautiful smile

    Rika Kihira is the new Japan National Junior Champion, coming back from a sixth place short program with a 3A-3T-2T combo, followed by another triple axel, to win.

    If she does that in Nationals, she will be officially anointed Japan's Next Big Thing.

    Rika is great! Two clean triple axels can add even more fire to JGPF and Nats.

    If she didn’t pop the 3lo into 2lo, and jump 3lz2lo, her BV will be a bit higher right? But still lower than Zagitova? I can’t believe with two 3A and 8 triples, her BV is still lower than a program without 3A. The system is ridiculous,

    if we say her layout is
    3A3T, 3A, 3F / 3Lz2T2Lo, 3Lo, 3Lz2T, 3S her BV is about 4 points higher than Alina
