Sam McAllister has placed fourth at this weekend’s Dragon Trophy in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
McAllister opened the competition with the short programme where he attempted a triple Lutz-triple toe loop combination as his first element. He went on to land a triple flip and a double Axel and secured Level 4 for all three of his spins. He was awarded a new personal best score of 60.73 points to place third midway through the event.
In the free skating earlier today, McAllister commenced his routine with a triple Lutz attempt and followed that up with a cleanly landed triple Salchow and a triple flip. He also included a triple toe loop in his programme and a flying sit spin was graded Level 4 by the technical panel. He posted another personal best score of 105.88 points which gave him a total of 166.61 points.
“I am happy with my new personal bests in the short and the long,” McAllister said. “Both programmes were definitely not my best showings, but it’s sport.”
