OverviewEdit

Russia swept all four gold medals.

In men's singles, Russia's Evgeni Plushenko won his fifth European title.[1] Switzerland's Stéphane Lambiel and France's Brian Joubert won silver and bronze respectively.

Russia's Irina Slutskaya won a record seventh European ladies' title, which put her ahead of Katarina Witt and Sonja Henie.[2] Teammate Elena Sokolova took silver and Italy's Carolina Kostner the bronze.

In the pairs' event, Russia's Tatiana Totmianina / Maxim Marinin won their fifth consecutive European title.[3][4] Germany's Aliona Savchenko / Robin Szolkowy took silver and Russia's Maria Petrova / Alexei Tikhonov the bronze. The Czech Republic's Olga Prokuronova / Karel Štefl, who were 10th in the short program, suffered a fall on a lift in the free skate.[5] Prokuronova lay on the ice for several seconds before Štefl helped her to her feet and she exited the ice.[5] They withdrew from the event. An ISU doctor said Prokuronova had not sustained a serious injury but was taken to the hospital for further examination.[5]

In ice dancing, Russia's Tatiana Navka / Roman Kostomarov trailed in the compulsory dance but rebounded in the original and free dances to take their third consecutive European title, while Ukraine's Elena Grushina / Ruslan Goncharov won silver and Lithuania's Margarita Drobiazko / Povilas Vanagas the bronze.[3][4]
