The 2013 World champions, Volosozhar and Trankov (RUS), captured the lead with a season’s best score of 83.05. The highlights of their performance included a spectacular triple twist and throw triple loop.

“We felt uncomfortable feelings on some elements, but we got all the levels we planned and we beat our season-best score. We are happy about the start of this competition. I think it’s great. Now we have to think about tomorrow and our free program” Trankov said.

“Today we did our short program very well. There were some mistakes, but these mistakes were just for us” Volosozhar continued.

“We don’t care so much about the world records. We care about our personal records, about our season’s best, about our skating. It is our pleasure to skate good, and [to have] the audience love it and when the people stand up out of their seats and are very loud and clap their hands, we feel it was most important thing than scores” Trankov added.

The 2013 Canadian silver medalists, Moore-Towers and Moscovitch are in second place with a score of 71.51. Moore-Towers and Moscovitch delivered a charming short program.

“It wasn’t 100 percent perfect, but a great starting point for the season. We are very happy with that short program. It’s a great start to the season for us. We’ve been training very well, we’re excited for this event, and we skated the way we’ve been training. It wasn’t 100 percent perfect, but it’s a great start to the Grand Prix season and we’re looking forward to the long tomorrow” Moscovitch said.

The 2013 Russian bronze medalists, Stolbova and Klimov, delivered a solid performance to Spanish Fantasy which earned them a score of 64.80. The Russians did a double twist lift and solid side-by-side triple-toe loops.

“Today we did well. We did all we planned except maybe one element. We skated well” Klimov said.
