At the fifth stage of this season’s International Skating Union (ISU) Junior Grand Prix series, Adelia Petrosian celebrated Russia’s third consecutive victory and her second medal, having previously won bronze at the third stage.

Leader after the short program, Petrosian began her free skate performance with a quad toe loop and then completed a triple Lutz-double toe loop combination, a triple loop, and a double axel. In the second half of her performance, the skater from Eteri Tutberidze’s Khrustalny team completed a triple flip-triple toe loop combination, a triple flip, and a triple Lutz-Euler-triple Salchow combination. The 14-year-old Russian received the second-best free skate score of 139.71 points and earned a total competition score of 210.57 points.

Fourth after the short program, Russian figure skater Sofia Samodelkina fell on her free skate opening quad toe loop but landed her subsequent quad Salchow. The 14-year-old, who trains with Sergei Davydov at CSKA Moscow, also landed a triple loop and a double axel. Samodelkina later completed two triple Lutz-triple toe loop combinations and a triple flip-Euler-triple Salchow combination, and received the best free skate score of 140.11 points. Her total competition score of 205.67 points rose her to second place.

The United States’ Lindsay Thorngren claimed her second medal of this season’s Junior Grand Prix series, having previously won the opening stage. The 15-year-old American fell on her opening triple axel attempt – which was eventually downgraded – but completed her next triple Lutz-triple toe loop combination, a double axel, and a triple flip. Later in her free skate routine, the 2020 U.S. junior national champion landed a triple loop-triple toe loop combination, a triple Lutz-Euler-triple Salchow combination (the latter Salchow was deemed under-rotated), and a double axel. Thorngren received a score of 123.53 points for the performance and earned a total competition result of 193.77 points for third place.
