European Championships Update: Ladies Short Program

Surprise!  For the first time in this competition, a Russian in not in the lead in the standings.  CRAZY!  And slightly less surprising is that Italy's Carolina Kostner IS in the lead.  Is she doing some reputation bolstering before the Olympics (if she is even assigned to the Olympics?) or will she err in the free skate?  Who knows.

What we do know is that when Kostner is clean, she is always a medal threat because the judges salivate over her speed on the ice and they like her components.  She leads with a 65.80.  Right behind her is Kiira Korpi of Finland who has a 64.26.  Korpi was somewhat of a surprise silver medalist at Cup of China this season.  Her countrymate, Laura Lepisto, is in third place with a 62.96.

Elene Gedevanishvili, who was a spunky in the 2009 worlds, is in fourth with a 60.82, while Russia's Alena Leonova did not have her best outing here, rounding out the top five witha  58.26.  Hungary's Julia Sebestyen is in sixth with a 57.44.
