CompetitorsEdit

OverviewEdit

Spain's Javier Fernández won the men's short program ahead of Japan's Yuzuru Hanyu and the United States' Richard Dornbush.[4][5] Hanyu placed first in the free program and won the title while Dornbush moved up to take the silver and Fernandez slipped to third.[5][6] Johnny Weir made his return to competition at Finlandia Trophy after a two-season absence.[6]

In the ladies' event, Finland's Kiira Korpi was first in the short program, followed by Russia's Yulia Lipnitskaya and the United States' Mirai Nagasu.[5][7] Yulia Lipnitskaya won the free program and the overall ladies' event.[5][8]

Canada's Tessa Virtue / Scott Moir withdrew before the event due to a slight muscle strain in Moir's neck.[9] Russia's Ekaterina Bobrova / Dmitri Soloviev won the short dance ahead of Italy's Anna Cappellini / Luca Lanotte and the United States' Madison Hubbell / Zachary Donohue.[5][10] Cappellini and Lanotte were first in the free dance by a small margin but it was not enough to overtake Bobrova and Soloviev for the gold.[2][5][8]

In the synchronized skating competition, included in Finlandia Trophy for the first time, the Finnish Team Unique took gold by a margin of 2.48 points to the fellow Finnish Rockettes, who in turn were closely followed by the Russian Paradise by a margin of only 0.61 points.[2]
