The Spanish Javier Fernández has conquered in Minsk (Belarus) his seventh title of European champion of figure skating, with comeback included, to achieve 271.59 points and say goodbye to the professional elite with a golden exercise. The Russian Alexander Samarin took the silver (269.84 pts.) And Matteo Rizzo was awarded the bronze (247.08).
The Spaniard, who had been third last Thursday in the Short Program (91.84 points), made this time 179.75 in the routine Libre. With his accumulated score of 271.59, he surpassed a Samarin who had dazzled the audience under the chords of The Greatest Show, song included in the soundtrack of the film The great showman (2017).
