OverviewEdit

2012 was the first time in more than twenty years that Great Britain organized the European Championships.[5] Robin Cousins choreographed the opening ceremony featuring 100 young local skaters and attended by Prince Edward.[5]

Evgeni Plushenko won the preliminary round.[6] The top 11 skaters advanced from the preliminary round to the short program, joining 17 direct entries.[7] Jason Thompson who placed 13th also advanced as the representative of the host country.[7] Artur Gachinski narrowly won the short program ahead of Plushenko.[8] Plushenko won the free skate and took his seventh European title, while Gachinski took the silver and France's Florent Amodio won the bronze.[9]

23 ladies competed in the preliminary round, with the top ten advancing to the short program to join 18 direct entries.[10] Polina Korobeynikova was the winner of the preliminary round.[11] The top three in the short program were Carolina Kostner, Kiira Korpi and Ksenia Makarova.[12] In the free skate, Kostner placed first, followed by Korobeynikova, and Elene Gedevanishvili. Kostner won her fourth European title.[13] Kiira Korpi took silver, her third European medal, and Gedevanishvili won her second bronze.

Russia's Yuko Kavaguti / Alexander Smirnov withdrew as a result of an emergency surgery the previous week to remove Smirnov's appendix and Ksenia Stolbova / Fedor Klimov took their place.[14][15] No preliminary round was held because there were only 19 teams in total.[7] Germany's Aliona Savchenko / Robin Szolkowy withdrew before the short program due to injury.[16][17] Russia's Tatiana Volosozhar / Maxim Trankov won the short.[18] Germany's Mari Vartmann / Daniel Wende collided with each other while attempting to avoid a French couple during the morning practice before the long programs on 26 January.[19] Volosozhar / Trankov won the free skate to take their first European title, while Vera Bazarova / Yuri Larionov and Stolbova / Klimov took silver and bronze respectively for a Russian sweep of the podium.[20]

19 teams competed in the ice dancing preliminary round, with the top eight advancing to the short dance to join 12 direct entries.[7] Julia Zlobina / Alexei Sitnikov were first in the preliminary round.[21] Ekaterina Bobrova / Dmitri Soloviev, Nathalie Pechalat / Fabian Bourzat, and Ekaterina Riazanova / Ilia Tkachenko were the top three in the short dance.[22] Pechalat / Bourzat won the free dance to take their second European title, Bobrova / Soloviev repeated as silver medalists, and Elena Ilinykh / Nikita Katsalapov won bronze, their first time on the podium.[23]
