Finnish teams reached the second step
Second round for the Finnish teams who’re dreaming of World Synchronized Skating Championships. This weekend was for them the 2nd qualification in Helsinki. The first battle took place a few weeks ago in Finland.
Same teams ahead but places switched
In the Junior category, 12 teams were engaged in this competition. Team Fintastic seems to be the best Finnish team of this new season. This team from Helsinki, who was placed 2nd at the last National Championships, made good progress since a few months. Team Fintastic skates this season the short program on « Kooza Dance », and the free on Time Machine’s theme. This year, Team Fintastic will probably be accompanied by Musketeers to the Worlds. Musketeers was Finland 1 last year. Unless Team Mystique reserves a surprise!
The Senior Finnish competition gathered this season Rockettes, MIU - Marigold IceUnity -, Team Unique and Revolutions. The senior final ranking of this second qualification hasn’t changed since the 1st qualification in November. The Rockettes could become the « Finland 1 » team this year.
When will the World Championships take place?
The Junior event is organized in Zagreb (Croatia) this season (JWCC: 11 - 12 Mar, 2016). The World Synchronized Skating Championships for the Senior teams will be in Hungary in 2016. Budapest will host this annual competition on 8 - 9 Apr 2016. Finland will be represented by two teams in each category.
