Daniil BERNADINER earned 107.67 points for his Free Skating and picked up 167.19 points overall. Dmitriy MIKHAYLOV slipped from 2nd to 7th with 156,18 points.

He achieved the National Squad Norm today and the competition was a good preparation for the National Championships in january.“

His teammate Alexander BETKE came in 8th with a personal best of 138,34 points. „I am pleased with my skating and the points in the competition. The triple Lutz – triple toeloop combination went really well in the Short Program and in the Free Skating I nailed the triple Lutz, with which I had troubles before,“ Alexander BETKE commented and his coach Martina Dieck added „Alexander showed really good jumps and showed a lot of improvement in the spins. Overall he showed a good routine.“
