Kirsten Moore-Towers and Dylan Moscovitch Pairs Short Program performance.
Worst performance of the night
Yasmina Elharim of Moracco scored a 4.45 in her short program. I honestly have no idea how she is even a junior. She practices 6 hours a week (just for comparison, Amber Glenn who is the same ago, practices 34 hours a week) She couldn’t hold a camel spin, she fell out of her scratch spin, don’t even get me started on the jumps or the choreography. This whole program looked like a giant joke
For all you putting down this 14 year old girl, please remember that she is a pioneer for the sport of figure skating in her country. She made history being the first Moroccan figure skater to compete internationally. Yes, she skated at a pre-preliminary level, but you know what, she tried. She knew that she wasn’t up to the level of the other girls on her warm up and yet she held her head high and started to forge a path for her country in the sport that she loves. So before calling her performance a joke, please consider that she’s only a young girl doing what she loves and trying to create a space for figure skating in Morocco - a country that would not be able to be a part of the ISU if she didn’t compete for them. Obviously she’s not at the same level as any of the skaters who competed today, but she’s got to start somewhere. You go Yasmina. Hold your head up high girl.
