It was the turn of the Senior Solo in both the Compulsory and Style dance.
In the Senior Ladies, Silvia Stibilj (ITA) confirmed herself as the uncontested Queen, but Viviana Osorio (COL) and Cecilia Liendo (ARG) are not so far: anyway, all of the first five athletes are still in the running for the medals.
The Junior Men and Ladies groups that got the lowest positions after the Short Programme performed their Long: we have to wait for the performance of the highest positioning groups that, tomorrow, will close the Junior Free classification and assign the title.
As usual, there were great expectations for the challenge between the Italian and Portuguese school in the Senior Men Solo Dance: in addition to this, once again Daniel Morandin and Alessandro Spigai faced each other as it has been happening since the last few years in an exciting run-up to.
At the end of the Style dance, Ricardo Pinto (POR), the defending champion, got the better of the two Italians: close to the Portuguese rival, a quite perfect Daniel Morandin; some flaws in Spigai's performance "relegated" him to the third position. Of course, the competition is still open and will be solved with the Free dance on Wednesday night. Definitely. At least for this year!
