high bar routine from the WCh last year is also in front
of the home crowd the big highlight at the end of this
starts with a double salto fwd. about the bar + ½ turn
(“Pegan“), then presents piked- and el-grip
variations (+ 7 tenth bonus) and a perfectly nailed
landing of his double double dismount. The last starter
from France couldn’t top that anymore...
Urzica (9,9): - presents
a layout Jaeger but has problems with the landing of his
- shows stoop circle-1/1 turn and a piked Voronin, that’s a
E+D combination (bonus of 5 tenth). His layout Kovacs is very
close to the bar; he presents a triple salto dismount from the
combination Stalder bwd. – piked -1/1 turn
- messed up his routine completely
(10,0): - presents of course his “Pegan“, then
piked Tkatchev – straddled Tkatchev – Gienger (that means a
bonus of 3 tenth); he has to make a step on the landing of his
tripple salto dismount.
- shows an attractive combination of five different piked
elements and one-armed giants, has small problems with the
“rhythm“ though. His Kovacs goes very well but he has to
make a step on the landing of his layout Tsukahara dismount.
- a great layout full-twisting Kovacs (Super-E-element with a
bonus of 3 tenth); then he combines two one-armed giants with a
piked Voronin (E+D; that means a bonus of 7 tenth). He nails the
landing of his double double dismount.
after Maras (see above) the last starter >>
(10,0): - after a layout Kovacs he presents the same
piked combinations as Maras and the same dismount also with a
sticked landing but he can’t reach the high bar World champion
who is now also European champion for the first time.
very dramatic competition in front of a cheering crowd finds his
overjoyed hero in the end!
