The basics in brief

  • Efimova/Blommaert of Oberstdorf with their choice are convinced of the free program for “Private Investigations,” despite their fluctuation in individual jumps and their rise from third place after the short program (186.17 points).

At the Nebelhorn Trophy in Oberstdorf on Friday, they finished by two points over teammates Annika Hocke/Robert Kunkel, who slipped off the top spot after the short program. Diana Stellato Dudek/Maxime Deschamps of Canada scored 192.74 points. 22 years ago, Stellato Dudek won the silver medal as an individual skater at the Junior World Championships in Oberstdorf.

Efimova/Blommaert of Oberstdorf with their choice are convinced of the free program for “Private Investigations,” despite their fluctuation in individual jumps and their rise from third place after the short program (186.17 points). “We’ve waited two years and are very happy that we can now start competing,” Blumert said. Efimova previously ran for Russia and had to wait two years for a permit. “It was very important to get started,” said the 23-year-old.

Nikita Starusten (Dortmund) finished ninth in the men’s competition, moving up three places after the short programme, despite falling during the triple axle performance. The third place in the German championship scored 184.96 points. Canada’s Keegan Messing jumped from third to the top after the short program and won the Nebelhorn Trophy for the second time after 2018 (245.74 points).
