Skate America: DAVIS AND WHITE LEAD, IMPROVED ITALIANS ARE IN IN SECOND, AND THE AMERICAN BROTHER-SISTER DUO ARE IN THIRD

The rhythms selected for the 2013-2014 short dance are the quickstep and foxtrot. The reigning World Champions and 2010 Olympic silver medalists, Davis and White (USA) are the leaders with score of 75.70.

“It was a good performance, but it wasn’t perfect” White said.

“It was very exciting to perform here in Detroit. The crowd was very into our performance. We felt the love from the stands” Davis added.

Cappellini and Lanotte (ITA), who have been working regularly with a technical specialist to improve their technique, are in second after the short dance. This strategy appeared to pay off for the Italian duo as they earned a total element score of 36.50, less than a point different from the total element score of Davis and White (USA).

“We are happy with our performance. This is our first competition. We are taking one thing at a time” said Cappellini.

“We are very fond of this dance. We like classical music generally. It is timeless and it never feels old or boring to us” Cappellini added.

The Shibutanis (USA), the brother-sister duo, delivered a crowd pleasing short dance and find themselves in third spot.

“We are really happy with the theme this year for the short dance. These themes allow us to play to our strengths” Maia Shibutani said.
