Despite a solid performance by Team Unique from Finland, who skated the best free program on Sunday (160.67), Les Suprêmes Seniors still finished with gold around their neck thanks to their outstanding performances throughout the weekend. The 2022 World Champions skated their "Madame Butterfly's revenge" with brio, obtaining 155.12 on Sunday. However, a fall occurred in the second intersection at the end of the program. 

With these programs, Les Suprêmes and Team Unique finish the weekend ahead of Nexxice, the 2023 Canadian Champions. Dream Edges from Finland ended up 4th, six points behind.
