TweetFacebookKailani Craine’s short program at the 2017 Asian Winter GamesThe three-time national champion scored 55.02 points in the short program on Thursday night, bettering the 54.70 she set in Korea, but she was still dissatisfiedas she chases a place at next year’s Winter Olympics.

“I would have loved to have done a better short program,” Craine said.

“I expect more from myself and, while people may think that’s great, I really would have liked more from myself, especially after the practices I’ve been having.”

Craine’sfifth ranking places her in the last group to skate the free program on Saturday.

“What I’ve learnt from Four Continents is that I need to fight for everything and not just expect it, because I’ve been doing really good in training,” she said.

“I think I got a bit too confident in myself for the free state [last week]because I was doing nice free skates in advance of the competition and also in practice.

“The goal for the free skate is to put out a personal best.I’m really aiming for that and to redeem myself from the [Four Continents]free program, because that was devastating for me.”

Craine is building up to the world championships in March in Finland, where she hopes to secure a top-17 result toguarantee Australia a place at the Olympics.
