Review-

This competition was probably one of B&S's best showings. The short program, skated to Swan Lake, was perfect. The free skate was equally magnificent, including a side by side double axel-double toe loop combination, side by side triple toe loops, a throw triple salchow, throw triple loop, a death spiral, and one of the best triple twists I've seen B&S perform. It was a very tight match against German pair Mandy Woetzel and Ingo Steuer, who stayed barely behind B&S the entire competition. The judges placed Elena and Anton first because of their superior artistry.
