Kihira (JPN) hits two triple Axels, soars to Ladies gold at NHK Trophy

Kihira, who stood in fifth place following the Short Program after a fall on the triple Axel, came back strong in her Free Skating to “Beautiful Storm” by Jennifer Thomas. This time she nailed the triple Axel twice – in combination with a triple toe and as a solo jump. The 16-year-old jumping phenomenon then reeled off five more triples and collected all level fours for her spins and footwork to compile a score of 154.72 points, and a total of 224.31.
