Skate America concluded today with the free skates in pairs and ladies.  

Pairs

The short program was a bit crazy but all was right with the pairs world again as Germany's Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy won the free and the competition over China's Dan Zhang and Hao Zhang.  Canada's Kirsten Moore-Towers and Dylan Moskovich were able to edge out Caydee Denney and John Coughlin for the bronze medal. 

Full results after the jump.

Ladies

Alissa Czisny hit a triple lutz/triple toe! Well, actually the triple toe was totally downgraded, but she tried it and she's getting close!  And then she kind of fell apart, but she fought for the landings that weren't great.  And she had a gorgeous program with beautiful elements.  She is very lucky to have just squeaked by a beautiful performance by Carolina Kostner.  Kostner also went big (for her) by doing a splendid triple flip.  Still no lutz.  Sweden's Viktoria Helgesson earned her first Grand Prix medal with the bronze in a mistake-riddled free skate.  And sadly, Carolina Zhang returned to form and ended the day in sixth place after a tenth place free.
