German Minerva Hase and her compatriot, former Russian figure skater Nikita Volodin, won the pairs competition in the Grand Prix finals in Beijing. This was reported by a Lenta.ru correspondent.

The athletes scored 206.43 points in the sum of the two programs. Italians Sara Conti and Niccolo Macchii took second place (205.88). The top three were completed by Canadian representatives Deanna Stellato-Dudek and Maxime Deschamps (204.3).

A native of St. Petersburg, Volodin represented Russia until 2022. In May last year, he changed his sports citizenship to German.
