2019 European Champions James and Cipres had a rough performance, while Russia’s Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov skated to the lead in the Pairs Short Program with the Chinese teams Wenjing Sui and Cong Han and Cheng Peng and Yang Jin following in second and third.
James fell on the throw Triple flip while he doubled the toeloop, the pair would finish 7th with 68.67 points.
“I don’t know what happened - I didn’t see Matteo, Matteo didn’t see me so we crashed and I fell. It took me off a little and I was not very comfortable after. I felt a little dizzy, so I tried to stay focused. It was a bad skate for us today, and with the fall it was very tiring after. It happened, it was a mistake and it affected the program as well as our concentration,” James said.
James concluded, “I have no physical injury following the collision but a big psychological shock.”
