1997 Nations Cup
Scores not available.
Elena and Anton finished second to Mandy Wotzel and Ingo Steuer of
Germany, the world champions, in both the short program and free skate. In
the free skate, they completed two throw jumps: a triple loop, landed
cleanly, and a triple salchow on which Elena two-footed the landing. They also
did side-by-side triple toe loops and side-by-side single axel-double
toe loop combinations. Their throw twist had its usual great height,
although the landing was somewhat shaky. However, it was great to
see them finally turn that double twist into a triple!
