Tessa and Scott lead the short dance competition with USA’s Madison Chock and Evans Bates in 2nd place.

“It was a thrill for us to be back out there on the ice, a great start to our season,” Tessa shared with press afterwards. “We’re really looking down the road to PyeongChang and kind of started our journey again today. We left some points on the table level-wise and that we’ll be looking to improve, but for end of October we’re very pleased.”

Spain's Javier Fernandez Brings Crowd To Their Feet & Wins Men's Title at Worlds 2016

Javier Fernandez is still the Men’s champ!

The 24-year-old Spanish figure skater defended his title at the 2016 World Figure Skating Championships held at TD Garden on Friday night (April 1) in Boston, Mass., beating out Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu and China’s Boyang Jin.

“I didn’t think about how important it was for me to win or anything, just kept going from jump to jump,” Javier shared with press afterwards. “It was not easy [to skate a clean program], but I got my mind really set to do it.”

Russia’s Mikhail Kolyada was in 4th, Canada’s Patrick Chan in 5th, with USA’s Adam Rippon and Max Aaron in 6th and 8th, respectively.

Yuzuru Hanyu Is Out For 'Revenge' At Worlds 2016; Tops Leaderboard For Short Program

Yuzuru Hanyu Is Out For 'Revenge' At Worlds 2016; Tops Leaderboard For Short Program

Yuzuru Hanyu heads into a tail spin in his routine for the Men’s Short Program during the 2016 Worlds Figure Skating Championships at TD Arena on Wednesday night (March 30) in Boston, Mass.

The 21-year-old Japanese figure skater took the top spot during the Short Program, besting Spain’s Javier Fernandez, Canada’s Patrick Chan and Team USA’s Adam Rippon and Max Aaron, who sit in 7th and 8th places, respectively.

“I feel like because I lost last year in this competition, I have to have revenge,” Yuzuru told press ahead of the competition.

His coach, Brian Orser, added, “[Hanyu] wants to win more than anything. It didn’t sit well with him [last year]. The only consolation was that it was Javi that won. That was a little easier pill to swallow. But he wants to win, and so does Javi. They’re both capable of winning.”

The Men’s Free Program will air Friday, April 1st @ 6:45PM. Check your local listings for the channel.

Olympic Champ Yuzuru Hanyu Crashes at Cup of China; Still Takes Home Silver Medal

Olympic Champ Yuzuru Hanyu Crashes at Cup of China; Still Takes Home Silver Medal

Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu, the reigning Olympic and World champion, was involved in a nasty ice collision during practice ahead of the free skate during the 2014 Lexus Cup of China on Saturday (November 8) in Shanghai, China.

The 19-year-old figure skater and China’s Han Yan crashed into each other during warm ups, which left Yuzuru on his back with blood streaming across his neck and face from a cut on his chin. Eek!

Determined to skate his free program, Yuzuru did just that and even though he fell from five of his jumps, he still placed 2nd, taking home the silver medal.

Team USA’s Richard Dornbush placed 3rd with Maia and Alex Shibutani taking 2nd in ice dance and Polina Edmunds taking 4th for the ladies.

Feel better, Yuzuru!

Maia & Alex Shibutani Kick Off Cup of China 2014

Maia Shibutani and Alex Shibutani show off their fierce paso doble dance for the short program during the 2014 Lexus Cup of China on Friday night (November 7) in Shanghai, China.

The sibling skaters were joined at the event by ladies competitors Julia Lipnitskaia of Russia, and Polina Edmunds, Christina Gao and Ashley Cain from USA, as well as mens competitors Yuzuru Hanyu and Richard Dornbush.

“In one word, it was the worst,” Yuzuru shared with press after his short program, where he placed second. “It’s surprising that this kind of performance was good enough for second. It’s extremely frustrating. I’ll have a hard look in the mirror, and then I want to put on the kind of performance tomorrow [in the free skate] that people expect from me.”

Richard, who skates for Team USA, placed 4th. Julia currently sits first for the ladies with Polina, Christina and Ashley at 7th, 8th and 11th.
