Alisson Perticheto reigns over SEA Games ladies figure skating program

Alisson Krystle Perticheto gave the home crowd an exquisite performance, ruling the short program of the 30th Southeast Asian Games ladies ice skating on Friday afternoon at the SM Megamall Skating Rink.

Performing last among participants, the 2017 bronze medalist was in her element, covering the ice in a deft manner. She amassed 53.65 points as the dust settled, but had to overcome the pressure to do so.

“I had a little pressure you know, because I want to make the Philippines proud. But again it’s all about the emotion and myself, and going into my routine, that’s what I did today,” said Perticheto.

The 22-year-old national team campaigner tallied 30.87 in the technical elements. She also garnered 22.78 from the presentation, with 5.83 from skating skills; 5.33 from transitions; 5.75 from performance; 5.58 from composition; and 6.0 from the interpretation of music.

Singapore’s Chloe Ing, the silver medalist two years ago, finished second with 50.67 total points. Meanwhile, Savika Zahira of Indonesia secured third with 32.62.

Perticheto’s fellow flagbearer Cirinia Renee Gillett, on the other hand, finished ninth — dead last in the opening day event. The SEA Games first-timer collected 20.93 points, notching 7.07 in the technical elements and 14.86 in the presentation.

Rounding out the participants were Thita Lamsam of Thailand (4th with 27.30), Tasya Putri of Indonesia (5th with 26.34), Teekhree Silpa-Archa of Thailand (6th with 26.18), and Aina Sordina Mohd Aminudin of Malaysia (7th with 25.66).
