Synchronized skating features multiple skaters performing complicated footwork and elements together to music.
The Rockettes ranked first after the short program, but a pair of falls in their free program deducted points from their score.
Les Suprêmes posted the highest marks in skating skills, transitions, performance, composition and interpretation of music in their free program.
