Alexander did not have much luck on the Chinese ice at the Cup of China in Beijing this past weekend. He had aimed to place 5th, but it didn’t work out. Instead he ended up in 10th place with 186,04 points. The quad, which has been consistent so far this season, was suddenly not there. However, Alexander did put his triple Lutz – triple toeloop combination back in his programs again. In the free he took an unfortunate fall going into a spin. Some jumps where doubled or even singled, and it was clearly not Alexander’s day. Now he will take some time to rest and recuperate and get ready for the last two competitions this year starting with the Golden Spin in Zagreb December 6 – 9, just a week before the Swedish Nationals in Skellefteå.
