Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final


Aljona Savchenko and Stanislav Morozov (UKR) took on a thrilling duel contending for first place against Julia Shapiro and Alexey Sokolov (RUS). After the Short Program, the Russians occupied the first position, but in the Free Program, they made several mistakes. Sokolov touched down on the ice on the double axel, positioning the Russians in second. The Ukrainian Pair skated a very clean program, which brought them the victory in the Free Program as well as the gold medal. Their program contained very impressive side by side triple toe, double axel-double toe, triple throw toeloop and many other difficult elements. The other Russian pair Victoria Shliakova and Grigory Petrovsky, who were in third place after the Short Program, kept this position after the Free Program. The couple skated a clean double throw salchow, a side by side triple salchow and a double axle-double toeloop.


Svetlana Bukareva (RUS) skated a very clean Short Program and won the first part of the competition. Unable to hold the pressure in the Free Program the Russian touched down on the ice while performing the triple flip, triple toe and double axel, placing her in third. Deanna Stalleto (USA), third after the Short Program, was able to take this advantage. Stalleto skated a strong Free Program, as she landed clean jumps including a triple lutz-double toe, a triple flip, a double axel-double axel, a triple toe-double toe, a triple lutz and a triple salchow, which won her the gold. Her teammate, Jennifer Kirk, who also accomplished an impressive Free Program, took second place. Kirk placed three high triples and had a very good triple toe-double toe, but missed the double axel in the combination with the triple salchow.


Song Gao (CHN) stayed on top in Gdansk. After a very good Short Program, he won the first part of the competition, followed by Stephan Lindemann (GER) and Fedor Andreev (CAN). The battle in the Free Program was very tight but Gao did not surrender. Although he missed two triples, he had a very good start, doing clean and high triple axel-triple toe and triple lutz-triple toe combinations which got him the gold. In the Short Program, Gao was closely followed by Stefan Lindemann (GER), who landed correctly a triple axel-double toe combination; followed by a triple lutz and triple axel, however, the German Skater missed the triple flip-triple toe combination. Fedor Andreev made several mistakes during his Free Program. He touched down on the triple axel and missed the triple flip and triple toe. Nonetheless the Canadian performed a very good triple lutz, double axel, a combination triple lutz-double toeloop and a triple salchow, taking the bronze medal.


The Dance competition was also very high standard and extremely close-fought throughout, as the top four couples, qualified for the Final, waged an intense battle for the podium. Russia's Natalia Romanyta/ Daniel Barantsev kept the lead and won the Gold. The couple Emilie Nussear/ Brandon Forsyth (USA) moved from fourth place in the rankings and took the silver medal, with the bronze going to the Ukrainian couple Kristina Kobaladze/ Oleg Voiko.
