The Team Interstellar from Ukraine had started their second competitive season taking part in the third stage of Ukrainian Young Skaters Competition in Odessa. And this was the team’s first competitive appearance after the major changes not only in the skaters roster but also in the coaching squad line-up that took place in the summer.


In Odessa last weekend, Team Interstellar had a solid short program performance to Michael Jackson’s “Give In To Me” with a good intersection of the third level with a second level for the point of intersection. And the Kharkiv-based team for their short program got 26.71 points – almost seven points more than on Budapest Cup last spring.

 



In the free program, the skaters skated in the same light-blue dresses that in the short. There was a mistake in the intersection. But however, the Team Interstellar also had shown good progress and earned 43.04 points – almost ten points more than on their international debut.

For this competition, the total amount is 69.75 points and now the Team Interstellar is ready for the international competitions.
