World Championships Results: Pairs Short Program

New, 1 comment

Competition is underway at the 2012 World Figure Skating Championships in Nice, France. See the results of the pairs short program after the jump.

Wow. The top Russian teams completely imploded, with Kavaguti and Smirnov and Volosozhar and Trankov receiving two deductions each. And right when I count Japan's Takahashi and Tran out, they come out and skate a personal best by about four points, placing themselves in medal position. But the biggest story is that this competition is now between Savchenko and Szolkowy and Pang and Tong. About a point and a half separates the top two teams.
