Hosts Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Ciceron won in Montpellier for the fifth time the World Figure Skating Championships, scoring the highest result in the history of this competition, 229.82 points.

Papadakis and Cizeron, 26, and one year older, were ahead of an American couple – Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donoghue as well as Madison Chuck and Evan Bates. The three train together in Montreal daily.

A month ago, the French won the Beijing Olympics. They also have an Olympic silver medal from Pyeongchang, as well as five European Championship titles.

Poland’s two World Cup debuts, Anastajja Polibina and Pawisz Golowisznikov, finished 28th in the 31-doubles tournament on Friday and did not qualify for Saturday’s finals. Natalia Kalisek and Maxim Spoderio, the 17th pair at the Beijing Olympics, did not compete in Montpellier due to illness.
