Winter Olympics: German figure-skating gold a Ukrainian-French coproduction

It should have been his second, but his hopes of competing in Sochi were dashed when his then-partner, Russian-born Daria Popava, was denied French citizenship.

The gold medal was particularly sweet for the determined Savchenko, who finally reached the top of the podium – at her fifth Winter Games. Not only do the pair seems an unlikely duo to be competing for Germany, but 24 hours earlier, a mistake by Massot, when he managed just a double rather than the planned triple salchow in the short program, left them in some distress – in fourth and seemingly out of contention.
