For the first time, after the pandemic outbreak, the Italian Junior and Senior teams had the chance to show their programs in a live competition held in Trento on Sunday. Team Hot Shivers won in both divisions.
This competition was a very important occasion because, after nearly a year, the Italian teams had the chance to skate and compete against each other in a "live event".
The teams skated both their programs in one day, the short programs in the morning and the free skating in the afternoon, to reduce the contacts between all the participants.
"We decided to keep our masks even when we were skating our programs as a precaution" said Team Hot Shivers from Milan.
"We are so grateful that we had this chance. We missed competing so much!" added Team Hot Shivers. "Our city, Milan, was heavily affected by the pandemic, so all these difficulties made us decide to keep our programs from last season".
Team Shining Blades skated an emotional program to the song "Adagio" by Tommaso Albinoni and ranked second with 47.17 points and a total of 69.64 points.
During the short program event, Team Ice on Fire skated a powerful program on a mush-up of two songs: "Elizabeth" by Ashram and "Strength of thousand men" from "Two Steps from Hell" soundtrack. The team took the lead with 54.42 points.
Team Hot Shivers, instead, presented a very elegant and smooth program skating to the song "Nelle tue mani" by Andrea Bocelli and earned 54.28 points.
Team Ice on Fire earned 102.46 points in the free skating with their elegant and emotional program "The tale of the red tread" and obtained a total of 156.88 points. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough for the first place!
Team Hot Shivers, in fact, performed a very clear, precise and dreamy program on the movie "Up" soundtrack and, with 104.33 points in the free skating and a total of 158.61 points, won the gold medal.
"Competing in this event gave us a sense of normalcy that we haven't felt for a while," said Team Shining Blades.
"It was amazing, we all hope that we will be able to compete again very soon at the second stage of the Gran Premio Italia at the end of February," added Team Ice on Fire.
