Things went well but we are disappointed because of the final part of our performance. Falling on ice did ruin our high-level program". Nicole Della Monica and Matteo Guarise - bronze: "We didn't expect to be on the podium because the battle for third place was really challenging. We couldn't have won any medal if we had done worse. The two Russian couples are excellent. We succeeded in improving our personal performance and we are glad and deeply satisfied to have done it in such a thrilling context. We regret we couldn't take part in the opening ceremony, but we'll do everything to attend the closing ceremony. Now we will focus on the Italian Championships and, later, on the European Championships and on the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi".
