At the same time as Finland, the Swedish teams had their Nationals this weekend. "This is one of the highlights of the year. The Swedish Synchronized Skating Championships bring together Sweden's best teams. There is usually a fantastic atmosphere in the rink," said Camilla Fredman, competition manager at Skate Sweden, on the federation's website.

The Swedish senior national team Team Inspire presented a clean short program and had more difficulties on Sunday in the free skate, especially in the Moves. Nevertheless, they scored 209.16. It's their best total this season.
