Greek Descent Ice Dancer Papadakis Takes Narrow Lead in Ice Dance at Euros (Vid)

January 23, 2020

Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron took a narrow lead in the ice dance at the European figure skating championships on Thursday as they seek to extend their unbeaten run of nearly two years.

Skating in 1980s-style aerobics costumes to excerpts from the musical “Fame,” the French duo scored 88.78 points to lead by .05 points ahead of Victoria Sinitsina and Nikita Katsalapov of Russia in the rhythm dance event.

Papadakis and Cizeron are chasing their sixth consecutive European title in ice dance. That would match the record held by Soviet dancers Lyudmila Pakhomova and Alexander Gorshkov, who won six titles. However, only Papadakis and Cizeron have won more than four in a row.

Sinitsina and Katsalapov are aiming to win their first European medal after coming second to Papadakis and Cizeron at the world championships last year.

Italy’s Charlene Guignard and Marco Fabbri are in the bronze medal position on 84.66. The competition concludes with the free dance on Saturday.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
