German golden pair are figure skating's best ever

Winter Olympics 2018 They performed a flawless free skate and fell to the ice in tears after finishing their routine

They finished with 234.47 points, leaving them with a silver medal. She won two Olympic bronze medals at Vancouver 2010 and Sochi 2014, but has finally won gold at the age of 34.

Aljona Savchenko and Bruno Massot took home Olympic pairs figure skating gold for Germany at Gangneung Ice Arena in Pyeongchang, South Korea, on Thursday.

"It is my moment".

"I said to Bruno: 'We will write history today.' And then everything happened as I had imagined, and it came true".

Savchenko said: "The blood in you doesn't know what nationality you are". "We were on the ice for a medal, and for a gold medal, and we didn't give up after what happened yesterday".

"I was very nervous", Kim said, "but when I heard the crowd cheer all the hardships melted away". Duhamel and Radford were solid, and Wenjing and Cong made things tight, but the gold medal was assured when Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov struggled.

The European champions, competing under the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation flag, were second after the short programme, but errors in their free dance left a sour taste and they had to settle for fourth. However when Szolkowy chose to hang up the skates after the Worlds in 2014, Savchenko wasn't ready to do the same and turned to the younger Massot, in whom she saw a lot of potential.

But to hit the Olympic bullseye at the fifth attempt was no straightforward affair after a Massot mistake in Wednesday's short programme left them trailing fourth, seemingly out of contention.

After Savchenko and Massot's stellar performance, China's Sui and Han had to be ideal if they wanted to retain the top spot. "We have to show to everybody that this program is an Olympic program, a gold medal program'". They also completed a throw triple flip and salchow, but had issues with their side-by-side jumps as Han had singled the first double toe in a planned side-by-side triple toe-double toe-double toe combination and Sui had stepped out in the planned side-by-side triple Salchow. We really wanted to do well, but simply fell too short in the end.

"But I hope that this will give us the motivation we need over the next four years to do well again at the Beijing 2022 Games". Massot is skating in his first Olympic Winter Games at the age of 29.

They finished 13th overall with a combined total of 193.63 points, the best score they have ever achieved.

The two-time world champions, who have said they would retire after the season, informed they are not planning to compete at the world championships next month. The team had three clean programs over a span of four days as they skated their free skate in the team event for Italy Monday before competing in the individual event Wednesday and Thursday. "And that always makes you skate better and perform better".

The lone American pair to qualify for the pairs final was the husband-wife tandem of Chris Knierim and Alexa Scimeca Knierim.

Kim said: "I'd like to express my gratitude to the people of the South. We heard that score when we were on the ice", Duhamel said.

Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford of Canada took bronze.

"Unfortunately, too many mistakes today", Scimeca-Knierim said.
