TORONTO – It’s now down to the Top Three, in CBC TV’s Battle of the Blades after Kyoko Ina and Kelly Chase were eliminated Monday night.
That leaves Shae-Lynn Bourne and Patrice Brisebois, Isabelle Brasseur and Todd Warriner and Katia Gordeeva and Valeri Bure remaining in the contest.
The three pairs will compete for the Crystal trophy and $100,000 donation to their charities of choice in next week’s finale.
The judges Sandra Bezic, Jeremy Roenick and Don Cherry said Gordeeva and Bure delivered a near-flawless performance Sunday.
The remaining three pairs will skate next Sunday in the final performance show and all eight pairs return Monday when the winning pair will be announced.
