This week saw Valeri and Katia perform exceptionally well with their country-themed routine. Skating to “Need You Now” by Lady Antebellum, Val and Katia upped their game by turning a split twist into a double (the execution of which shocked the judges).
The Russian duo was awarded the highest mark of the night with a 17.7. The viewers favored the pair as well, giving them enough votes to come back for the next round!Compassion Canada’s President, Dr. Barry Slauenwhite was at the show on Sunday and here’s what he had to say about seeing the show live:
“The show was amazing and Val and Katia’s performance was stunning. It’s not hard to see why they continue to garner the judge’s top scores. We’re proud Val is skating for Compassion kids.”
We are ecstatic that Val and Katia are continuing on to the next round of the Battle of the Blades . Next week sees all the survivors of Round Four take a break to make way for a second chance for one of the eliminated pairs to return to the competition.
With only a few weeks left in the competition, all of us at the Canadian office are praying that Val and Katia make it to the end. Please pray with us, tune in every Sunday and vote for Val!
