Finals[edit]

Two of the teams participating in Final A changed their teams between the semifinal and final rounds; Canada replaced Amanda Overland with Anouk Leblanc-Boucher and South Korea replaced Kang Yun-mi with Jeon Da-hye.[1] China crossed the line in third place, but was disqualified when Wang Meng was adjudged to have interfered with a Canadian skater. This moved Italy up to the bronze medal position.[2]
