The fifth place finish qualified Kailani for valuable world standing points, pushing her ISU Season World Ranking to 45.
The 17-year-old Australian Champion scored a total 138.11 with a tight, yet controlled short program that did not incur any downgrades or under-rotations and a six-triple free program that was not up to her expectations.
“I wasn’t happy with a couple of the jumps or one of the spins because I wanted more points,” Kailani said before she headed to Los Angeles for a month’s solid training before the ISU Four Continents Championship in Taipei.
“I’ve got Four Continents on my mind and looking forward to L.A. Really happy and pumped about being back there. I’ve never wanted a personal best so much as I want for the next comp and I will train like a machine.”
Latvian Angelina Kuchvalska won the event, with other Australians Brooklee Han finishing in eighth and Chantelle Kerry in 18th.
