Figure Skating World Cup: Canadians won in pairs, Hungarians finished fourth

The Hungarians produced a sumptuous program in terms of artistic elements. The triple spin lift was flawless, and the Axel jumps following the triple toe loop were also successful, as was the triple somersault. After the three-turn Salchow, Rittberger's thrown triple was also perfect, as was the one-handed lift. At the end of the course, there were amazing spins and spins.

The judges rated the production excellent, awarding them 136.59 points, almost eight points higher than their best free skating performance at the European Championships in January. With their amazing performance, they took the lead when there were only four competitors left, because in front of them, the pair of Georgian (Georgia), world junior champion and European silver medalist, made several mistakes. As a result, they were unable to finish in fifth place with a total score of 204.60, a similar peak for the short program and round, and also an improvement over last year's seventh place finish.

In the last group, which included the best, the German duo of Minerva Fabian Haase and Nikita Volodin skated brilliantly, but last year's European champion and World Cup bronze medalist, Sarah Conte and Niccolò Massi, the Italian duo, failed repeatedly. The Hungarian duo, Pavlova Maria, failed and Sviachenko Alexei got another place. And get better. In the end, the outstanding duo on the field, Diana Stellato-Dudek and Maxime Deschamps, who played in front of the local crowd, and the Japanese duo of Reiko Miura and Kihara Rujichi, the defending champion, competed separately, although the latter had the better round, with a four-point lead over The short program, and the Canadians were victorious. The member of the gold-medal-winning women's team reached the top at age 40, returning to the ice at 32 after a 16-year absence.

The value of the performance of the fourth Hungarian pair at this year's European Championships is enhanced by the fact that their performance was the best training in terms of technical values. However, even this was not enough to win a medal, meaning that since the 1980 victory of ice dancing duo Kristina Regucci and András Szálai, no Hungarian has finished on the podium at the World Championships. In Paros, Hungary's last World Cup medal was in 1955 thanks to Marian Nagy and Laszlo Nagy, who finished third 69 years ago.

The World Cup competition will continue on Friday from 16.20 CET with the rhythmic dancing of the ice dancers, in which the Hungarian contingent will also be interested.
