Julia Lipnitskaya skated a great short program at the Russian Nationals 2016! Seems the new coaching team was a good decision for her!
Short program score – 73.77 (38.37+35.40). They have reworked the program a bit (the order of elements), she even add a tano triple lutz!
I feel that I have refreshed on 200% for this three weeks, – Lipnitskaya said.
I had some jitters before the performance. I watched the boys yesterday. For everyone it was hard. Especially for those who was born here. Today I talked with Max Kovtun, he even spoiled me the mood.
I was nervous already on the warm-up, and when I came on the start, was very afraid to let down the public. Gave everything I had. Hence, the tears.
