Mirai Nagasu | 2014 Ice Champions Live (Michael Weiss Foundation) [x]
Mirai placed 3rd in the free skate but couldn’t move up in the overall rankings, to finish 5th in Salt Lake City on Saturday. She earned 104.03 in the segment and had a total of 159.49 overall (One downgrade and two UR triples, fall on 3Lo). Hopefully she can build upon her performance here and improve her next time out. Up next for her is the Michael Weiss show tomorrow then Japan Open in 3 weeks.

Mirai is currently in 5th after the short program in Salt Lake City with a score of 55.46. She attempted 3F-3T but singled the toe, then bounced back with a clean 3Lo and 2A (from a spread eagle!). She got positive GOE for every element except the combination and is within striking distance of the podium. Good luck to her in the free, where she will skate 10th out of 13.

Lynn Rutherford was tweeting from practices and said she was hitting her triple loop well. Her coach, Tom Zakrajsek, said she will practice the triple axel while in SLC but she won’t attempt it in her programs.
