GBs Coomes and Buckland Qualify for Free Skate

GBs Coomes and Buckland Qualify for Free Skate – the couple twirled and swirled beautifully in this fabulous routine 

Great Britain’s Penny Coomes and Nick Buckland safely progressed to the final day of the ice dance competition at the Winter Olympics.  Their skating style so elegant

The pair scored 68.36 in the short dance and finished 10th, with the top 20 competing in Tuesday’s free dance.

GB’s Rowan Cheshire, 22, also qualified for the ski halfpipe final but Molly Summerhayes, 20, missed out.

Briton Aimee Fuller, 26, fell on both runs in the snowboard big air and failed to make the final.

Coomes and Buckland are making their third appearance at a Winter Games.  It is two years after Coomes smashed her kneecap into eight pieces and was told she would never skate again.

Christopher Dean, who won Olympic gold alongside Jayne Torvill in 1984, helped choreograph the pair’s routine.

Coomes and Buckland will now compete in the free dance on Tuesday.  It starts at 01:00 GMT, with the medals awarded to the pairs with the highest cumulative score over the two dances.

Will they make it?  We know they will.  They perform so well together don’t they?
