Javier Fernández says goodbye in a big way as heptacampeón of Europe


The Spanish skater Javier Fernández has bid farewell to the competition in a big way. He opted for his seventh European, something unprecedented in the last 84 years. Fernandez, 27, came to the long program in third position, after a controversial qualification in the short program, a rating with which he did not agree. The Spanish skater arrived without competition rhythm after having dedicated in the last months to the show "Revolution on ice". The Spaniard started behind the Russians Mikhail Kolyada (100.49) and Alexander Samarin (91.97). After 12 years in the elite skating, Fernandez jumped to the track with the need of 178 points to overcome Samarin and despite having had a minor failure managed to secure the silver, with 179.75. Kolyada was missing, he could get the pressure, he made many mistakes and finished his exercise with his damaged wrist. So Fernandez, achieved the unthinkable, say goodbye in a big way.
