Roman Sadovsky places sixth at ISU Grand Prix

SHEFFIELD, England (November 12, 2022) – Roman Sadovsky of Vaughan, Ont., placed sixth Saturday in men’s competition at the MK John Wilson Trophy, the fourth stop on the ISU Grand Prix figure skating circuit.

Daniel Grassl of Italy took the gold medal with 264.35 points. Deniss Vasiljevs of Latvia won the silver with 254.56 and Shum Sato of Japan was third with 249.03.

Sadovksy was first after a brilliant short program on Friday but he struggled in his free skate. The 23-year-old Olympian was fifth at the season opening stop at Skate America last month.

In ice dancing, Charlene Guignard and Marco Fabbri of Italy, the winners last week in France, lead after the rhythm dance with 86.30 points.
Lilah Fear and Lewis Gibson of Great Britain are second at 85.37 and Marjorie Lajoie of Boucherville, Que., and Zachary Lagha of St-Hubert, Que., are third at 81.09.

Their dance to Cha Cha and Samba included level-four twizzles and a level-four rotational lift.

‘’We were both in the present moment even though we were very stressed,’’ said Lajoie, third with her partner two weeks ago at Skate Canada International.
‘’It was fun and I think the crowd really helped us.’’

Alicia Fabbri of Terrebonne, Que., and Paul Ayer of Brossard, Que., are eighth and Haley Sales and Nikolas Wamsteeker of Langley, B.C., are ninth.

Mai Mahara of Japan is first in the women’s event after the short program. Gabrielle Daleman of Newmarket, Ont., is eighth.

Competition ends Sunday with the women’s free skate and the free dance.
