Four continents success for Meagan
Meagan Duhamel has been in Seoul, South Korea to compete in the Four Continents. The competition brings together the leading skaters from North America, Australasia, Africa and Asia to parallel the European Championships.
The competition started with the short programme, which saw her and partner Eric Radford leading by nearly six points over second place. They followed this with a free skate that they won by over ten points.
The final result was a win for Duhamel and Radford by a large margin. Their score clearly exceeded the 200 which many consider the mark of a world class performance at 219.48. While the three teams placed second to fourth were separated by less than three points, the winning margin was over eighteen points.
Meagan was pleased with the performance. ”The highlight was landing the throw quad after we had a small mistake on the side-by-side triple Lutz. That’s very difficult to do but we kept our focus and composure and that was very important for the rest of the program.”
The pair have their sights set on the World Championships, and adding to their already high standards. ”Going into the worlds we’ll be looking to add more sharpness to the technical elements as well as more speed and energy throughout the program.”
