Pairs skater extraordinaire Alyona Savchenko returned to competition with new partner Bruno Massot after her previous partnership ended following the Sochi Olympics. Massot, who previously skated for France, had to receive clearance from his federation to compete for Germany as Alyona’s partner, so the two have been away from competition for quite some time.
They came back strong and won silver at Europeans. This freeskate shows their incredible unison, and skating skill. It’s not perfect, but it’s still an amazing performance from a new pair with their eye on the 2018 Olympics.
