There was an accident during the free skating. Maxim Marinin lost his balance while attempting a difficult lasso lift and his partner Tatiana Totmianina slammed to the ice head first, sustaining a concussion, but was not seriously hurt.[1] A short while later, Julia Obertas fell out of a lasso lift but her partner Sergei Slavnov managed to catch her to prevent her head hitting the ice.[2]
