This week began the Senior (age 19+) portion of the 56th Roller Figure Skating World Championships that is taking place in Brasilia, Brazil. The world’s top-ranked artistic roller skaters will compete and represent their native countries to crown a world champion. Skaters compete in the following disciplines: freestyle, solo dance, figures, pairs and team dance. Groups of skaters competed earlier in the week against each other in show and precision competition, as well as inline roller skaters in freestyle events.

Thursday November 24:
“Tonight in Brasilia was the Ladies short program. The Italians, Debora Sbei and Christina Trani dominated with powerful jumps and great speed across the skating surface. Lucija Mlinaric of Slovenia skated strongly as well and is in 3rd place after a showtune program that was very well done.

In the team dance event, teams performed their Original Dance where the defending world champions Mirko Pontello and Melissa Comin De Candido from Italy skated strongly and are in 1st. Hot on their heels are the newlywed American team of Kyle and Heather Turley. There were a number of delays and problems in this event due to giant bugs inhabiting the skating surface.

The pairs was a spectacular event with Italy sweeping the podium and now 3-time pairs world champion Sara Venerucci scored a perfect 10 with her partner, Danilo Decembrini. Their costumes were spectacular and throw triple salchow and loop were pure perfection. The Italian teams of Garelli and Cappelar, 2nd and Fabbri and Marzocchini, 3rd were equally amazing.

On a side note the crowds are excellent here and its great to see roller skating see such support. More to come tomorrow but the wifi is about to cut out again….
