Maria Paramonova skated a clean short program at the Moscow Junior Championships and is the leader among 36 junior women heading into the free skate.

The representative of CSKA began her short program with a triple flip, then landed a double axel, and completed a triple Lutz-triple toe loop combination. Paramonova earned a score of 69.40 points for the performance in a close competition.

Sofia Titova, who trains at Angels of Plushenko, also performed a clean routine. She opened her short program with a double axel, followed by a triple flip, and also completed the triple Lutz-triple toe loop combination. Although she received a higher score for technical elements (39.31 points) than Paramonova (38.74 points), Titova received a lower component score (29.86 points) compared to the leader (30.66 points). Titova earned a total performance score of 69.17 points and is in second place.

Maria Zakharova is a point behind Titova and currently occupies third place. She completed the same jumping elements as the top two but had an issue and lost points on the triple flip. The Sambo-70 representative received a score of 68.17 points.


Two of CSKA’s top figure skaters, Elizaveta Berestovskaya and Sofia Samodelkina, are outside of the top five after the short program. Berestovskaya didn’t lose a significant amount of points for technical elements, as she completed the same jumps as the top competitors, but received over two points less for her component score (27.12 points). She received a total score of 65.31 points and is currently in sixth place.

Samodelkina attempted a triple axel in a combination to begin her performance but, unfortunately, fell. The competition’s favorite earned the second highest component score (30.32 points) but her total short program score of 59.62 points put her in twelfth position.
