Volosozhar Trankov mesmerize at pre-Olympic Worlds, Canada gets its first medal in Ontario

Volosozhar/Trankov had a perfect and brilliant free skate that owed them their first world title. They nailed everything from start to finish and a fall by Maxim after a throw jump didn't affect their performance at all. 149.87
It looked like Savchenko/Szolkowy were about to give up a provisional lead to Duhamel/Radford as Aliona doubled all they side by side jumps and Robin fell on one but after nailing a super throw triple flip at the beginning of the program, they nailed for the first time in their career a throw triple axel just few seconds before the finish. 132.09

Duhamel/Radford received the whole support of the crowd during their free skate. They alternated greatly executed elements with struggles but at the end it was a clean performance. They started off with a great triple twist and triple lutz side by side. They held on their last lift and the throws weren't as long as they usually are but clean. 130.95
Moore-Towers/Moscovitch delivered a stunning performance nailing all of their elements with great quality. Kirsten just slightly two footed a throw triple salchow, but anything else was perfect. The highlights of their program were a gorgeous triple toe-triple toe sequence and a throw triple loop at the end of the program right on the music phrase. The home crowd was, again, leaping of joy after they have finished. 130.25
An amazing artistry is what has always described Pang/Tong's skating and they gave a superb performance with a great choreography full of elegant details. They weren't that clean technically as they did a single axel-double axel sequence and a step out to the throw triple salchow, but they were appreciated for their components and got 130.69.
