The first day of the National Championships Figure Skating Championships, hosted by the "Meranarena" Merano, ended with the junior women's short program.At the end of the first segment of the race, the first position is occupied by Maria Guia Tagliapietra, after Carolina Kostner, became the second Italian skater to land a flawless combination of two triple jumps during a race this season.
Fifteen of Courmayeur, in the last edition preceded by training partner Sara Casella, scored the best technical score, while leaving a few tenths on the plate on the double axel and the level of the top upside down. Archived combination triple toe loop / triple toe loop, Tagliapietra has performed as well as most of the athletes enrolled'' s event, preceded by a double Rittberger step, leap required (double or triple) in the junior races this season.
On balance, the'' student Romina Poli has therefore proved to be worth more than fifty points in the short program and took her own satisfaction to overcome, despite the ballast represented by double ritttberger, the minimum technical score required to earn '' eligibility for the senior World Championships, which, however, due to age restrictions, will eventually participate from 2015.
In second place, with less than two points behind, is Rebecca Ghilardi, who skated a program without any trimming, embellished with a double axel of high quality, but, by choice, characterized by just double jumps. The fourteen stationed in Sesto San Giovanni has, however, taken the satisfaction of getting the highest rating on each of the components of the program.
The provisional podium is completed by'' home athlete Lisa Barbieri, lingered eight lengths relative to the head of the race. After that, she finished the fourteen year old school Agora, Clare Calderone, the only athlete to have submitted and completed a triple lutz, but suffers from a flying sit that did not get level.
The fight for the podium remains, however, open as the third in the standings and the thirteenth are separated by just four points.
