Brendan Kerry through to Figure Skating free skate
Posted on February 16, 2018 by Matthew Greenlaw
Australia’s Brendan Kerry has qualified for the final of the Men’s Singles Skate in PyeongChang, set to take place tomorrow.
Kerry delivered an impressive score of 83.06 to directly qualify for tomorrow’s free skate, where Kerry will have the opportunity to perform his long program.
Skating to the song Everyone Wants to Rule the World, Kerry landed a difficult quad toe loop jump, leading to the athlete’s best score of the season.
The 23 year old was justifiably jubilant with his performance.
“It feels great, it feels freaking awesome, I’m not going to lie,” said Kerry.
“I needed that skate.”

“I was nervous, of course, but I knew I just needed to stay relaxed and do what I’d been doing in my practices.”
“I’m a much stronger skater than I was at Sochi and this time it felt like I actually deserved to be here, so I came in with a very different mindset.”
The Men’s Singles Skate concludes tomorrow.
