Fintastic claims sixth consecutive Junior World Challenge Cup gold medal

The Finnish teams continued to dominate at the Junior World Challenge Cup in Gothenburg on Saturday, as Fintastic won their sixth consecutive (and seventh total) JWCC gold medal, while Musketeers claimed silver. Musketeers finished more than 20 points ahead of the bronze medal winners from Canada, Les Supremes, who moved up from fourth place after the short program, putting Canada back on the podium after missing out on a medal in 2011.

Canada’s Nexxice took advantage of errors made by USA’s Team Braemar and Skyliners, and Sweden’s Convivium, to move up to fourth place in the free, though they ultimately finished sixth overall behind the American teams. Braemar and Skyliners finished fourth and fifth overall respectively, Convivium seventh, and Russia’s Spartak Junost eighth.

Full results are here.

Next year’s Junior championship has been provisionally allotted for Helsinki, Finland, from March 8-9, 2013 and is scheduled to be the first official ISU World Championship for Juniors, rather than a Challenge Cup.

Congratulations to all of this year’s participating teams!
