The three leading teams after the short programs received on Friday evening a "small medal" which was followed by an official press conference with the team captains.
"It was very exciting to be on the ice today and we skated as we do in practice. It was just great to be in front of our own crowd" added Les Suprêmes who won the silver medal after the short programs.
Honestly, it felt like home and extraordinary phenomenal. We are proud of our program today," continued Nexxice.
Helsinki Rockettes responded that in Finland they had the chance to skate during most of the pandemic. "We took this chance to work on the basics of skating skills. It was sometimes a bit long to work on it, but we are lucky," said Nona Vihma.
For Les Suprêmes, the last two years have not been easy with the lockdowns and restrictions in Canada and the captains explained that sometimes we had to be creative. "This is only our second competition of the season so we are very grateful."
"We practiced a lot but when we got here it was a little bit smaller than we thought. So yeah it was a challenge!" said Helsinki Rockettes.
"We are very proud. It's been two years very challenging, but we didn't give up, so it's a reward for us to win this medal in front of our families, friends, and fans is even better", said the captains. Les Suprêmes have indeed had many supporters in the crowd. "Les Suprêmes is a big family, and Quebec is a very nice province!"
