FIRST TWO MEDALS AWARDED AT NATIONAL SYNCHRONIZED SKATING CHAMPIONSHIPS

BURNABY – Defending champion Synchronicity from London, Ontario, and Les Supremes from Saint-Leonard, Quebec, took the first two gold medals here Friday at the 2014 Skate Canada Synchronized Skating Championships at Bill Copeland Arena.

Synchronicity won it by the slimmest of margins in the Intermediate division with 102.72 points to edge out Evolution from Charlesberg, Quebec, who finished with 102.62 points.  Nova from Boucherville, Quebec, finished third with 98.2 points.  Evolution and Nova reversed orders from last year’s competition.

After finishing third the last two years, Les Supremes finally made it to the top of the podium in the Novice event, easily running away with the title with 112.31 points. Nova was second with 98.40 points and Nexxice from Burlington, Ontario wound up third with 97.69 points.

The event has drawn just over 700 skaters representing 41 teams from across the country.  The first two finishers in the Senior competition will represent Canada at the World Championships in Italy this April.

The Senior’s competition winds up the three day event on Sunday.
