First Dutch ice dancing duo in 37 years at the World Figure Skating Championships comes 29th | NOW

Chelsea Verhaegh and Sherim van Geffen failed to qualify for the free dance at the World Figure Skating Championships in Stockholm in the ice dancing section.

The Dutch couple achieved a score of 50.79 in the rhythmic dance after a creditable performance. With that, they were just short of being eligible for a sequel.

Verhaegh and Van Geffen scored the 29th score of the 32 participating couples. Only the best twenty couples participate in the free dance.

Verhaegh and Van Geffen were the first Dutch couple in 37 years to compete in ice dancing at a World Cup. With their performance to the music of ‘Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend’ they kept three couples under them.

Verhaegh and Van Geffen enjoyed World Cup participation

The two debutants were very satisfied with that. “We immediately saw that we were above another pair”, says Van Geffen on Schaatsen.nl. “We assumed a 32nd place and everything above that was a bonus. For us it was a good freestyle, which makes us very happy.”

“I really enjoyed it,” said Verhaegh. “We did quite well for a first World Cup. We don’t feel like we made any big mistakes.”

“It was difficult to estimate in advance what score we would get from the jury. Our goal was to put in a good performance, we succeeded.”
