Today was the final day of competition for senior skaters at the Tallinn Trophy, a victorious event for Great Britain’s elite figure skating couple Christopher Boyadji and Amani Fancy. As well as bringing home a bronze medal, the pair scored new personal bests in both programs and achieved the qualifying score for the forthcoming World Championships.
Day one kicked off with the Short Program and saw Boyadji and Fancy score 53.94, beating their current personal best of 48.75.
The second day of competition was the Free Skate and a great skate awarded them with another personal best. It was the first time the pair performed their Free Program choreography on a world stage and amazingly they scored 102.78 and beat their current score of 83.53.
High Performance Manager, Robin Cousins said;
“This was the first outing for Christopher and Amani’s ‘Ghost’ free programme and it’s been well received. They have a good performance base to work from and hopefully each performance will grow from this.
“There’s still a lot of work to do to compete against the world’s top teams but they’ve had their first taste of being on a podium at this level and I’d like to congratulate them on two great performances!”
Boyadji and Fancy overall scored 156.72 and were placed third behind first and second place Germany. To see full details from the senior competition, click here. Next on the radar for Boyadji and Fancy is the all-important British Championships in December at iceSheffield.
