Figure skating in pairs: Photos and results

The final competition of figure skating at the Beijing Games is the freestyle skating pairs on Saturday at the Capital Indoor Stadium.

Sui Wenjing and Han Cong, a famous Chinese team, came in first in the short program on Friday. They were eager to make amends: They had a victory within reach at the 2018 Olympics, but lost the gold medal by just 0.43 points.

They face tough competition from three Russian pairs. Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov placed second in the short show, behind Sui and Han by a fraction of the point. Anastasia Mishina and Aleksandr Galliamov, the defending world champions, tied for third. Aleksandra Boikova and Dmitrii Kozlovskii are in fourth place.

Georgia’s Karina Safina and Luka Berulava took the lead after eight of 16 pairs performed freestyle skating. The top medal contenders will skate last.

Pairs were judged on two events: the short show on Friday and the free skating on Saturday, which lasted four minutes. The medal winner will be determined by adding up the points of the two events. Figure skating in pairs: Photos and results
