Ice dancers Alexandra and Roman Zaretsky earned the bronze medal at the Nebelhorn Trophy in Oberstdorf, Germany, which concluded on Saturday. The brother-sister duo came in third in each of the three rounds - the compulsory dance (the Rhumba), the original dance, and the free dance - and had an overall total of 156.67 points. Sinead and John Kerr of Britain (166.20) earned the gold, while Morgan Matthews and Maxim Zavozin of the United States (165.21) finished in second. The Zaretskys were well ahead of the fourth-place finishers, Alexandra Kauc and Michal Zych of Poland (145.68). Israel's top ice dancers, Galit Chait and Sergei Sakhnovsky, did not participate in one of the season's first competitions. Sergei Kotov finished 16th overall in the men's event with 119.69 points. He came in 14th in the short program and 16th in the free skate.
