The junior team Musketeers from Finland won the short program event
Musketeers and their "Light at the end of the tunnel" short program.
With 37 teams participating over the weekend, the Neuchâtel Trophy started on Friday in Switzerland. The beautiful sun shining on the lake shore was in perfect harmony with the atmosphere in the ice rink. Here is a short recap of what happened during the junior short programs!
Team Mirum (ESP) presented a dynamic short program with Asian sounds. What a pleasure to see this team again in an international competition after several months of stopping because of the Covid. Coached by Elya Matveeva, the team achieved a score of 29.86. The competition will be close between these two teams.
Representing the USA, Starlights skated their short program at full speed. The beginning of the program was particularly well choreographed. The Ilinois team then had a fall which resulted in a 1 point deduction. Score after the short program: 53.29
Illuminettes skated a clean program on the theme of angels and demons. The costumes were particularly interesting with an angel feather on the back. Skaters from the Netherlands earned 37.80 points on this first day.
Then, the Cool Dreams Juniors took to the ice. Despite a fall at the end of the program, the Swiss team presented a clean performance for a total of 44.10, a score slightly higher than last week at the French Cup.
Recently named Team USA, the Northernettes team from the Minneapolis area, United States, took to the ice with confidence. Despite a fall during the program, the skaters led by Alana Christie won 56.90 points and provisional third place.
Finally, the only Finnish team, the Musketeers skated a creative and error-free program. Anu Oksanen's team easily took the lead in the competition with a score of 70.42 points!
