Synchronized skating features multiple skaters performing complex footwork and elements together to music.

Marigold Ice Unity and Helsinki Rockettes of Finland placed second and third with Nexxice of Burlington, Ont., in fourth.

The Rockettes placed first after the short program, but a pair of falls in their free skate deducted points from their score.
