Review-

This was an excellent performance by B&S. In the short program, the highlight was definitely the double split twist. It was perfect, except for a slightly sloppy triple toe loop by Anton. The long program was perfect. Elena and Anton often have a little bit of trouble in the long program ('97 Worlds and Nagano), but were at their best this time. Every judge ranked their long program first, except for the German judge who obviously went for Mandy Woetzel and Ingo Steuer. Their long program was eventually voted "Best Performance of the Year" by Blades on Ice magazine.
