Sofia Frank concludes Finlandia campaign with two more national records


Sofia Frank ended her CS Finlandia Trophy 2021 campaign as she started it after breaking two new national records on Monday (Manila time) at Espoo Metro Areena in Espoo, Finland, en route to 18th

The 16-year-old, who just finished her second international tournament with this campaign, got 94.79 points in the freestyle and a total of 148.09 officially the three highest scores ever achieved by a Filipino skater.

The best results so far in this segment and the total number in an ISU competition were achieved by the two-time Southeast Asian Games medalist Alisson Perticheto as part of the CS Warsaw Cup 2019.

Frank reopened her routine with a jump combo, a solid triple Lutz-triple toe combo that set the tone for her program. She then had to recover from a misstep on her next jump – a triple flip – with better execution on her next jump, including a triple lutz later in the program.

The teenage skater’s technical elements score of 48.92 is just a few points below the minimum technical score required to qualify for next year’s World Championships.

Frank went melodramatically in this segment with Romeo and Juliet’s wedding vows as their choice of music and once again scored her best grades in composition and interpretation of music. This time, however, the 2021 Colorado Springs Invitational bronze medalist showed an improvement in her skating skills with a score of 6.00.

The Russian Kamila Valieva won the gold medal after she came up with the big elements in the freestyle. After finishing third, the 15-year-old scattered foursome jumps into her segment’s program to overtake compatriot Elizaveta Tuktamysheva for the title.

Another Russian woman won the bronze medal with Alena Kostornaia.
