Pairs[edit]

Germany's Aliona Savchenko / Robin Szolkowy won the pairs' title. Russia's Yuko Kawaguchi / Alexander Smirnov attempted a throw quadruple salchow jump in their free skating. They were credited with the rotation, but she fell on the landing, so it was not completed successfully.[3]

Ice dancing[edit]

Canada's Tessa Virtue / Scott Moir won gold in ice dancing. Melissa Gregory / Denis Petukhov of the United States withdrew before the free dance due to an accident;[4] he lost his footing and dropped her on her chest while performing a one-handed rotational lift during the six-minute warmup, and skidded into the boards himself. Gregory was rushed to a hospital on a stretcher but released later that night. They missed the rest of the competitive season while recovering from their injuries. The compulsory dance was the Yankee Polka.

Hann-McCurdy and Coreno were substitutes, replacing a team which withdrew before the start of the event.[4]
