Is there an "official scheduler" for the major championships? If there isn't, there should be. With all the excitement surrounding the 2009 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, we also have the 2009 ISU European Figure Skating Championships underway at the same time! This year the European Championships are in Helsinki, Finland and lots of my favorites -- Brian Joubert, Tomas Verner, Carolina Kostner, Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy, and Sinead and John Kerr, just to name of few, are competing.
At the European Championships, the ice dance compulsory dance has completed. Jana Khokhlova and Sergei Novitski from Russia won the compulsory dance with 37.43 points. Federica Faiella and Massimo Scali from Italy are second with 36.03 points. Sinead and John Kerr from Great Britain are in third with 34.89 points. Nathalie Pechalat and Fabian Bourzt from France follow with 34.38 points. And surprisingly, favorites Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalin from Russia are sitting in fifth place with 33.53 points.
