Pairs Skaters Marissa Castelli & Simon Shnapir Place 9th; Felicia Zhang & Nate Batholomay in 12th at Sochi Olympics
Marissa Castelli and Simon Shnapir show off their perfect sit spin during the Figure Skating Pairs Free Skating at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics held at Iceberg Skating Palace on Wednesday night (February 12) in Sochi, Russia.
“We weren’t too worried about the placement coming in here because we’re a fairly new team,” Felicia shared with press after their skate. “We just competed in our first Olympic Games and we handled the pressure really well.”
So who took gold? Russia’s Tatiana Volosozhar and Maksim Trankov were the clear winners, followed by teammates Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov in second. Third went to Germany’s Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy.
