At the end of the second day of competition, the Hevelius Cup ended with a sweeping victory for Finland's Marigold IceUnity and a Canadian trio on the junior podium.
The event was exciting in the Junior division. Fourteen teams from Europe and North America skated, and the standings changed from one day to the next.
The three Canadian teams finished on the podium:
- Nexxice Junior in the first place: despite some difficulties in the 1st intersection, the Burlington (Ontario) team delivered an emotional free program without any major mistakes, finishing with a lead of almost ten points!
- Ice Ignite: the surprise of the evening! 5th after the short program, the Ilderton (Ontario) team moved up from fifth to the silver medal with 164.14 points, while Nova from St-Hubert (Quebec) remained third with 164.12 points, with a fall in the No Hold Block Element.
After the Canadian teams, the two American teams were next in the standings, followed by Finland and the host country, Poland, with the Ice Fire team.
The Junior event allowed many teams to showcase their skills in an intense competition. Team Amber Junior did not skate the free program on Saturday.
Senior ISU: A great battle for bronze
Adrian College team (USA) achieved its best free program score ever (128.93) and finished 2nd. Ice Fire Senior from Poland made a comeback on the podium with a good free program, leaving Team Darlings (CZE) in 4th place in the end.
