Helsinki Rockettes kickstarted the competition season by winning the gold medal in Espoo on Saturday night.
On Saturday evening, the five of world´s top Senior teams took part in this invitational short program competition, Haydenettes from USA was a very welcome visitor among the four Finnish teams. Their journey across the ocean was rewarded with a bronze medal. Marigold IceUnity (FIN) came second.
Marigold IceUnity (FIN) has a very different theme compared to last year. Their new short program “Who’s there?” was dramatic and created a menacing atmosphere. Blue-grey and black dresses were also gloomy. The whole of the program was clean and the team earned 67.74 points in total.
Their fast and easy-going new short program “Good Times Roll” was performed wit good confidence and they earned a total score of 63.32.
Dream Edges Senior (FIN) came fifth. Their program "The Shackles of Gender" brought them 60.90 points. There were some nice tricks in their performance and the deep purple color of their costumes stood out beautifully on the ice.
The four Finnish Senior teams will meet next time on the 5-6 of November at the first qualification competition in Lahti. They will perform their new free programs to the judges and the Finnish audience for the first time this season.
