All the synchro-lovers in Russia became the happiest skaters, coaches, judges, and supporters from October 31 to November 1, 2020. Indeed, overcome all the obstacles, the 1st Stage of the Russian Cup took place in Togliatti. Traditionally, this competition was held in Moscow. However, the bad epidemiological situation in the city couldn't allow competitions to take place. Fortunately, Tolyatti still managed to host events, and they were between three age-categories: Advanced Novices, Juniors, and Seniors.
Lumière Cup 2019 took place this weekend in Eindhoven (NED). 30 synchro teams competed on Saturday evening with their Free Programs. Cool Dreams won the Advanced Novice division, Musketeers delivered an excellent skate and earned the Junior gold and Marigold IceUnity put out a beautiful program in the Senior category.
Finnish teams cruised to their first gold medal in European international competition this season. After the Short Program competition, Marigold IceUnity totaled 74.94 points to seal the Senior victory. Musketeers skated into the lead in the Junior event with 69.98 points. Canada, Germany and France are also on the provisional podium.
From the 2nd to the 3rd of November, the 1st Stage of the Russian Cup took place in Moscow. It was the first serious competition of the season for Russian skaters. So, the synchro community across the country was super excited to start.
Italy once again charmed several synchronized skating teams who competed last weekend in Milan in Advanced Novice, Junior and Senior. The competition also celebrated the 25th anniversary of its creation.
