National Champion Alisson Krystle Perticheto Qualifies for 2018 World Championships
1 October 2017
Despite falling short on qualifying for the 2018 Winter Olympics at the Nebelhorn Trophy held last September 27-30 in Oberstdorf, Germany, reigning National Champion Alisson Krystle Perticheto managed to qualify for the upcoming 2018 World Figure Skating Championships. Finishing in 11th place overall, she achieved new personal bests for the Free Skating and overall score, and obtained the minimum qualifying technical score in the Free Skating for the World Championships.
Having already obtained the minimum qualifying score in the Short Program at the 2017 SEA Games, Perticheto has booked her ticket to her first-ever World Figure Skating Championships, which will be held in March 2018 in Milan, Italy.
Perticheto's appearance at Worlds will be the first by a Filipino lady in close to a decade, and the first since the minimum qualifying scores were introduced.
