1998 European Championships

Location-Milan, Italy

Date-January 10-18, 1998

Review-

In the short program, Elena and Anton skated to "Swan Lake" as well as I've seen them skate it! Every element was flawless and they even received a 6.0 from the Polish judge, their first ever.

The long program, skated to "Dark Eyes," was also excellent. The program included a triple split twist, side by side triple toe loops, a throw triple loop, a throw triple salchow, and a slightly flawed double axel - double toe loop combination. The program was placed first by every judge, and Elena and Anton established themselves as Olympic favorites by winning the 1998 Europeans.
