The 2009 World Champions from Russia Maxim Shabalin and Oksana Domnina triumph the first slot with 43.76 points, Friday, in the opening stage of ice dancing competition. Russians skated out their rivals Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada in Compulsory Dance who ranked next to them with 42.74 points.

Landing on the third slot are Meryl Davis and Charlie White from University of Michigan with 41.47 points, who confessed they went out there and felt solid, felt very under control, to get a good score was nice, but fate turned out to be placing them on the third spot. They still intend to fight for their two-year US title in Ice Dancing.

The 2006 Olympic silver medalists Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto ranks fourth on the said ice dancing competition garnering 40.83 points. Ranking is expected to change because Compulsory dance is just  the first of three phases of ice dancing competition. According to report, Original dance will be held on Sunday and Free Dance on the next Day.

As of this writing, Compulsory Ice Dance Winner Shabalin and Domnina refused to say whether they are going to wear the costumes in Sunday’s original dance. They told the Press it is still a surprise.
