Skate Today


Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, 2010 Olympic champions and 2 time World Champions, of Canada, unveiled their new free dance to Carmen.

“There is a reason why so many skaters want to skate to this music…It sounds great in an arena” said Virtue.

“We are pleased with the skate. It is the first time that we competed this free dance. It is a demanding program. There was a lot of pressure on us to prove that we were ready” said Moir.

Anna Cappellini and Luca Lanotte, of Italy, also skated to Carmen. Carmen is their second free dance of the season as they had to change their previous free dance.

“We found it very motivating that Virtue and Moir were also skating to Carmen” said Cappellini.

“We are pleased with our performance. We feel that we delivered the emotions of the music. There are aspects of the program that we can improve” said Cappellini.

Ekaterina Riazanova and Illia Tkachenko, of Russia, skated their free dance to The Godfather.

“We feel that we skated really well. We are happy with our skating. We are really happy to receive a medal and to be on the podium” said Tkachenko.

The team hopes to be on the podium at their next Grand Prix event in Paris.
