In Franta s-au desemnat seara trecuta primele medalii ale campionatului mondial de patinaj artistic, in proba de dans, iar steagurile castigatoare ce s-au ridicat in Palais des Expositions din Nisa au fost cele apartinand Canadei, Statelor Unite ale Americii si Frantei.
Tessa Virtue si Scott Moir i-au detronat de campionii en-titre Meryl Davis si Charlie White, devenind pentru a doua oara campionii lumii. Si pentru ca primele doua locuri erau previzibile, bucuria mea cea mai mare a fost ca francezii au ocupat si ei o treapta a podiumului, chiar daca doar cea de-a treia. O merita pe deplin pentru ca sunt intr-adevar una dintre cele mai frumoase, talentate si harnice perechi din patinajul international de mare clasa. Bravo Nathalie si Fabian Bourzat!
Din pacate nu am prea mult la dispozitie sa scriu mai multe detalii, dar o sa revin cu siguranta cu alte amanunte putin mai spre seara. Azi s-au gasit toate treburile din lume sa intervina in programul meu, nu stiu cat patinaj reusesc sa vad… dar pe germani trebuie orice ar fi sa ii vad castigand proba de perechi!
Clasamentul in proba de dans:
1. CAN – Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir – Programul liber: 110,34 / Total: 182,65
“It feels amazing. It was a perfect ending of the season for us. It wasn’t a magical skate, we kind of had to fight through the elements and really rely on our training. The sweetest part of the season was the ability to train to all our potential. That was our big reward this year, enjoying the training and we did”. – Scott Moir
“To be honest it wasn’t the best we’ve skated this program this season. But that’s why we train and that we got all the mileage on the program we can rely on even we didn’t feel necessarily a 100 percent. It’s great to get the victory. We’re thrilled with our season”. – Tessa Virtue
2. SUA – Meryl Davis & Charlie White – PL: 107,64 / T: 178,62
“We’re a little disappointed because we felt we skated our season best performance and we wanted our season best scores at Worlds. But we skated our hearts out and left it all on the ice today. We’re going home with the silver, but we’re going home with a lot of pride, too, in how we presented ourselves and our programs”. – Charlie White
“It was a great season for us – last year we felt a lot of pressure to make history. The scores weren’t what we were looking for but we can’t control that and we’re satisfied with what we did”. – Meryl Davis
3. FR – Nathalie Pechalat & Fabian Bourzat – PL: 104,05 / T: 173,18
“It was our goal to reach a medal. The hardest part about these World Championships was not the competition itself but the last two weeks of preparation, we are very tired now. It was a great competition, especially because we are skating here at home”. – Nathalie Pechalat
“We are very satisfied with this performance, we did our very best and could finally show our level, the one we have in practice. I was more nervous than yesterday, but I pushed until the end. Our practice was good all week and this performance was the top of it”. – Fabian Bourzat
