Spring Cup 2018

The Spring Cup takes place from 16 to 18 February at the PalaSesto ice rink, Sesto San Giovanni, Milan. Unusually, there are no British teams at this year’s event, just a token Brit from iowskaters in the audience waving a Swedish flag for Team Surprise in the senior competition – because, of course, IW skater Gemma Marsh is in the skating 16 for Team Surprise.

Results are at http://www.fisg.it/upload/result/4581/index.html. There is usually live streaming, but no link at the time of writing. Last year it was via the Spring Cup YouTube channel, with individual programmes uploaded later: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwg-qdCiYW75muAysGHNhvg

Update: Team Surprise skated clean programmes, scoring 73.03 in the short and 132.58 in the free for a total of 205.60 and first place by some way. It’s probably true to say that no IW skater has ever been in a higher-scoring synchro team at an ISU international. Team Surprise’s free programme is available to view at https://youtu.be/3J0qu_tDxcY.

Individual videos are available on catch-up at https://www.youtube.com/user/springcup/videos but the senior shorts are not yet uploaded.
