Canadians Win Gold and Silver in Junior Pairs at Bavarian Open

OBERSTDORF, Germany – Recently crowned national junior champions Brooke McIntosh and Benjamin Mimar led Canada to a 1-2 finish in the junior pairs event on Friday at the Bavarian Open figure skating competition.

McIntosh, from Toronto, and Mimar, of Terrebonne, Que., took the gold with an international best of 155.07 points in their first overseas assignment as a pair. Summer Homick of Tillsonburg, Ont., and Marty Haubrich of Dubuc, Sask., were second with 137.79. Barbora Kucianova and Lukas Vochozka of the Czech Republic were third at 121.39.

‘’It was really good,’’ said Mimar, who joined forces with McIntosh last season. ‘’We had a lot of fun and we were happy with the result. The trip was a bit rough, but we had a good rest once we got here and that allowed us to be near our best.’’

Homick and Haubrich were also second to McIntosh and Mimar at junior national earlier this month in Ottawa.

‘’It was great to bounce back from a subpar short program,’’ said Homick, 14.

‘’We were really happy with the long program,’’ added Haubrich, 20. ‘’We put out a good performance and did what we set out to do.’’

It was the same 1-2-3 standings after Thursday’s short program.
