“James and Cipres, undefeated this season and the first French pair to win the European Championship in over 80 years, went down when James botched the landing on their throw triple flip and fell to the ice.

“James later said a collision with Italy’s Matteo Guarise during the warm-up prior to their performance had rattled her.

“I didn’t see Matteo, Matteo didn’t see me so we crashed and I fell,” she told the International Skating Union [ISU]. “It took me off a little and I was not very comfortable after. I felt a little dizzy, so I tried to stay focused. It was a bad skate for us today, and with the fall it was very tiring after.”
