Les Suprêmes Crowned Three-time World Synchronized Skating Champions

Zagreb, CRO (April 6, 2024) – Les Suprêmes of Saint-Léonard, Que., became the first synchronized skating team to ever capture three-straight World Championship titles on Saturday at the 2024 ISU World Synchronized Skating Championships in Zagreb, Croatia. Nova Senior of St-Hubert, Que., finished fifth.

Les Suprêmes dominated the competition setting all new season’s best scores to finish first in the short program (78.99) and first in the free skate (159.08) to win gold with a total score of 237.97. Team Haydenettes from the USA captured the silver medal with a total score of 233.85, while the Helsinki Rockettes took bronze with a total score of 229.84.

“It was really exciting for us to skate last,” said Les Suprêmes team co-captain Julia Bernardo after their free skate. “Skating last is always super exciting because the crowd is always super fun and loud, and when the crowd gets louder, we just try to be more and more calm, and we prepared ourselves for that.”

When asked what it felt like to be three-time World Champions, co-captain Olivia Di Giandomenico added: “This is unbelievable. You don’t realize it until it happens, but we’re so happy and proud of our team. We’ve come a long way and we’ve been working really hard this season with the goal of winning the World Championships again, and it came true and we’re just super happy.”

The win caps off a very strong season for the team with wins at the Canadian Championships and the Budapest Cup, and a silver medal from the PGE Hevelius Cup.

Nova Senior got the competition off to a roaring start with a huge new season’s best score of 72.09 for their short program on Friday. They faltered a bit in their free skate on Saturday to score 139.49, leaving them in fifth overall with a total score of 211.58.

The team last appeared at the World Championships in 2019 where they finished seventh, so this was a great result for the team who finished second at the Canadian Championships this year and brought home a bronze medal from the PGE Hevelius Cup earlier this season.
