Just returned from England where the team took part in the Britannia Cup last weekend, Adrian College (USA) finished second on 57.81 points edging Team Darlings (CZE), who scored 46.13 points. Adrian College had one fall in the last element of the program which made them lose several points for the intersection.
The Italian Ice on Fire is really not far behind and can still dream about a podium. The team arrived fourth and got a total of 44.37. The local team Zagreb Snowflakes placed fifth with 34.36.
Finland dominated the Junior division
Two teams from the United Stated claimed provisionally the silver and bronze medal. Team Image and Lexettes had both a fall in their program and finished respectively second and third with 58.88 and 57.50.
Then came, Canada. Gold Ice had also a fall in the No Hold Element that cost a few points and finished 4th after the short program with 53.97. The Finnish team Sun City Swing, Harmonia from the Czech Republic, Shining Blades (ITA), the Hungarian Team Magic, Kometa (CZE) and Zagreb Snowflakes from Croatia completed the Junior rankings.
