"Figure general" Kim Yerim (20-Dankook University) finished sixth in her first Grand Prix competition of the 2023-2024 season.

Kim earned a total score of 117.12 points, including a technical score of 55.41 and a performance score of 61.71, in the women's single free skate at the Cup of China, the fourth event of the 2023-2024 International Ice Skating Union (ISU) Figure Skating Senior Grand Prix, in Chongqing, China, on Wednesday.

Combined with her short program score of 59.56 the previous day, her total score of 176.68 placed her sixth out of 11 competitors.

With just five Grand Prix points, Kim is now effectively out of the running for a spot in the Grand Prix Final for the second year in a row.

Athletes can compete in a maximum of two Grand Prix events per season. The top six finishers in both Grand Prix events combined qualify for the Grand Prix Final.

Kim qualified for the Grand Prix Final last season by winning one gold and one silver medal in the two Grand Prix events. She finished the Final in sixth place.

This season, however, she failed to win a medal from the first competition.

She faltered badly on her jumps.

Her first jump, a triple lutz-triple toe-loop combination jump, was ruled an Attention (attention to edge) and a quarter-landing (jump rotation was lacking at the 90-degree level), deducting 1.43 points from her GOE.

The next jump, a triple flip-double axel sequence, was executed flawlessly, but the triple loop and triple salsa were called back-to-back quarter-landings.

Kim, who performed both her flying camel spin and change foot combination spin at the highest level of difficulty, Level 4, continued to make jumping mistakes in the second half of her routine, which carries a 10% penalty.

Her triple flip-double toe-loop-double loop combination jump received two underrotated judgments (the rotation of the jump is more than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees), and her triple lutz was downgraded (the rotation of the jump is more than 180 degrees) due to a wobbly landing and hand touching the ground.

Kim continued her performance with a correo sequence, a step sequence (level 3), and finished her jumping task with a double axel and a flying change foot combination spin, which was handled as a level 4.

Japanese athletes swept the women's singles gold and silver medals at the event. Hana Yoshida took first place with 203.97 points, followed by Rinka Watanabe in second with 203.22 points. 슬롯사이트
