Davis/White win at Skate America short dance
The Polka has been performed for the first time in an ISU competition this season and skaters gave some interesting and original short dances.
Meryl Davis and Charlie White skated a stunning and beautifully choreographed short dance. They did some superb level four twizzles, as they always used to do, but received a point of deduction for a too long lift. Apart from the technical content, they delivered an astonishing balletic Giselle. They scored 71.39 and assured the first place.
The Canadian couple Weaver/Poje had already debuted this season at Nepela Memorial and won it. They are currently in second with a 65.69 short dance to Sound of Music. They have a great unison and they committed their short dance.
Bobrova/Soloviev of Russia, who won Finlandia Trophy recently in the season skated a very fresh short dance with ease and confidence. They scored 62.91 and ranked third after the short.
