The Senior Team Ice On Fire brought home gold from the first national competition in Italy, leaving the silver medal to Hot Shivers. Many other ISU and Non-ISU teams competed on Sunday the rainy Aosta and put out creative performances.
In the Advanced Novices division, Hot Shivers delivered a clean program, as usual with elegance and precision, to Mary Poppins and won the competition. Lady Birds, mixing their poisoned potions, got the silver medal. Team Ice on Fire took the bronze.
Now, it is time to talk about the Senior category where we had a huge surprise from Team Ice On Fire. The skaters from Trento obtained 41.26 points in the short program and 93.48 points in the free program for a total score of 134.74 points. Ice on Fire started the season leaving everyone speechless, and now with this victory in Aosta, they confirm their great form.
The famous Hot Shivers dropped from first to second, and finished with the silver medal. The National champions and Team Ice on Fire had both a fall in the short program. In the free skate, Hot Shivers fell three times and Ice on Fire, one time.
The third position went to Shining Blades that got a total score of 80.18 points.
These three teams are competing to qualify for the World Championships. This season, Italy will be able to send two teams in Lake Placid in April.
Juvenile and Mixed Age
This season in Mixed Age, Italy has two new entries coming from the Junior ISU category: Flying Angels from Rome and Ice Diamonds from Chiavenna. This situation can be explained by the lack of regular ice rinks that makes this sport difficult to practice in the country.
Nevertheless, in the Mixed Age category, the first place went to Flying Angels that earned a total score of 36.90 points. They skated to the music of "Pearl Harbour" expressing the themes of war and love. Ice Diamonds finished second and skated to "The Huntsman Winter's War" (36.02). Frost Fairies took third place with a total score of 34.52 points.
