The 2012 European Figure Skating Championships was an international figure skating competition in the 2011–12 season. The event determined the European Champions in men's singles, ladies singles, pair skating, and ice dancing. The competition was held from 23 to 29 January 2012 in Sheffield, England.[1][2]

Qualification[edit]

Skaters were eligible for the event if they were representing a European member nations of the International Skating Union and had reached the age of 15 before July 1, 2011 in their place of birth. The corresponding competition for non-European skaters was the 2012 Four Continents Championships. National associations selected their entries according to their own criteria but the ISU mandated that their selections achieve a minimum technical elements score (TES) at an international event prior to the European Championships.

Minimum TES[edit]

Overview[edit]

2012 was the first time in more than twenty years that Great Britain organized the European Championships.[5] Robin Cousins choreographed the opening ceremony featuring 100 young local skaters and attended by Prince Edward.[5]

Evgeni Plushenko won the preliminary round.[6] The top 11 skaters advanced from the preliminary round to the short program, joining 17 direct entries.[7] Jason Thompson who placed 13th also advanced as the representative of the host country.[7] Artur Gachinski narrowly won the short program ahead of Plushenko.[8] Plushenko won the free skate and took his seventh European title, while Gachinski took the silver and France's Florent Amodio won the bronze.[9]

23 ladies competed in the preliminary round, with the top ten advancing to the short program to join 18 direct entries.[10] Polina Korobeynikova was the winner of the preliminary round.[11] The top three in the short program were Carolina Kostner, Kiira Korpi and Ksenia Makarova.[12] In the free skate, Kostner placed first, followed by Korobeynikova, and Elene Gedevanishvili. Kostner won her fourth European title.[13] Kiira Korpi took silver, her third European medal, and Gedevanishvili won her second bronze.

Russia's Yuko Kavaguti / Alexander Smirnov withdrew as a result of an emergency surgery the previous week to remove Smirnov's appendix and Ksenia Stolbova / Fedor Klimov took their place.[14][15] No preliminary round was held because there were only 19 teams in total.[7] Germany's Aliona Savchenko / Robin Szolkowy withdrew before the short program due to injury.[16][17] Russia's Tatiana Volosozhar / Maxim Trankov won the short.[18] Germany's Mari Vartmann / Daniel Wende collided with each other while attempting to avoid a French couple during the morning practice before the long programs on January 26.[19] Volosozhar / Trankov won the free skate to take their first European title, while Vera Bazarova / Yuri Larionov and Stolbova / Klimov took silver and bronze respectively for a Russian sweep of the podium.[20]

19 teams competed in the ice dancing preliminary round, with the top eight advancing to the short dance to join 12 direct entries.[7] Julia Zlobina / Alexei Sitnikov were first in the preliminary round.[21] Ekaterina Bobrova / Dmitri Soloviev, Nathalie Pechalat / Fabian Bourzat, and Ekaterina Riazanova / Ilia Tkachenko were the top three in the short dance.[22] Pechalat / Bourzat won the free dance to take their second European title, Bobrova / Soloviev repeated as silver medalists, and Elena Ilinykh / Nikita Katsalapov won bronze, their first time on the podium.[23]
