It has 1 1/2 rotations which makes it harder than the other single jumps. She would also be training her two rotation jumps now if the axel is solid enough to go in her program. Good for her!

On 1st of July she becomes Junior, so she may participate in some bigger events. I wonder, if we can see her anywhere in the TV (or live stream in the Internet) live then.

Thanks to those who posted the YouTube link of Alexandra's performance. Much appreiciated and I love the flow she's got over the ice. A very light touch IMO and also IMO, that's a wonderful thing. :)

I was actually very impressed. She may not be world champion material, but she's definitely graceful and it's obvious that she works very hard at what she does. She also looked beautiful.

I wonder if Alexandra attended the European Championship in Zagreb (Croatia) as she and Caro did last year in France.

Her next competition:
Coupe de la Baie des Anges, les 2 et 3 mars 2013
Categorie 3 F (whatever it means, I think "F" stands for "girls" in French)
As far as I understand it's also named "Coupe Nice" so it will probably be held there.

What fun photos; she looks so adorable. That's such a good placement, too. Congratulations to this budding young skater! Thanks for posting, Iceflower.

Congrats Princess... Alex looks both so funny and amused dressed in her ragged outfit and her wig as she looks charming in her skating dresses. Mamma Caroline must be sao proud...

^She should have better poisture considering the fact she probably takes ballet classes and poisture is everything in both ballet and figure skating.

She looks lovely, looking more and more like her ma these days(good!). Nice costumes aswell.

Good to see Pierre being such a supportive brother aswell. I wonder when we'll see Charlotte or Andrea at one of her competitions.

Let's agree that it's not very hard to have a better posture than Charlotte

Haha not really no. Alexandra takes more after Caroline in that aspect. They both possess an ease and elegance Charlotte doesn't. Alexandra atleast does on ice.

Figure skating is such a subjective sport, so full of politics! I wonder if she really deserved the second place or she just got it for being who she is. I remember a while ago to see a video of her skating and I am sorry to say but she wasn't very good.
I must say she looks pretty and lovely costumes! can she do triples? any video out there of her in this last competition?

i am suprise if she is doing ballet not too much stretching
