Russian world championship dance ‘Rise Like a Phoenix’
KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA (CANADA) – Russia’s Anna Pogorilaya won the women’s short program Friday night at Skate Canada International, and Spain’s Javier Fernandez topped the men’s field. Canada’s Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford led in pairs, and teammates Canada’s Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje topped the ice dance standings. Pogorilaya had 65.28 points. American Ashley Wagner was second with 63.86.
in the gala taking place after the completion of the competition part, Anna performed a stunning act with the song of Conchita Wurst’s “Rise Like a Phoenix”. The amazing performance with the reds and hair change will remain memorable but the song will also remain memorable to President Putin, as his government made it clear that Conchita was not a good thing for Russia in Eurovision 2014.
Nice to see an inland lesson to Mr Putin!
