At the fifth stage of this season’s International Skating Union (ISU) Junior Grand Prix series, Adelia Petrosian continued the Russian junior women’s dominance but this time the competition was way closer than in recent years.

Petrosian landed her opening double axel and continued her performance without any errors. She also landed a triple flip and a triple Lutz-triple toe loop combination. Bronze medalist at the third stage of the series, Petrosian received a season’s best score of 70.86 points.

Skating in her first grand prix event, Minchae Kim opened her short program routine with a triple flip and completed the same jumping elements as the leader – the South Korean actually received a higher element score (40.94 points) than the Russian (39.96 points) – and earned a total program score of 70.83 points.

Winner of the opening stage of the series, Lindsay Thorngren, also received a higher element score than Petrosian – 40.90 points – and although she placed third after the short program, the American figure skater improved her personal best score by nearly eight points. Thorngren received a result of 70.24 points, which puts her only 0.62 points behind first place.
