Rostelecom Cup Results: Day 2

New, 1 comment

Rostelecom Cup is complete!  Some more Grand Prix Finals slots have been earned.  It was an up and down day for the Americans.


In ice dancing, I have no idea what happened.  There were three withdrawals after the short dance.  What the heck?  So Bobrova and Soloviev won pretty easily.

No surprises in the pairs competition.  Russia's Kavaguti and Smirnov took home the win, and Americans Evora and Ladwig earned the bronze, placing second in the free skate.  I'm very happy they were able to medal...and from what I hear, many thought them underscored in the short.

Poor Agnes Zawadzki had another unfortunate free skate.  But American Ashley Wagner got herself back on the Grand Prix podium with a bronze!  Miki Ando and Akiko Suzuki went one and two once again.

In the men's competition, apparently three is the number I was searching for for the amount of times Patrick Chan can fall in Rostelecom Cup and still win.  Because he had four falls (total) here, and it was one too many.  Poor Jeremy Abbott also had two falls in his free skate.  But look at Tomas Verner...I'm surprised he beat Chan but it looks like he definitely deserved it.
