Alexandra and Roman Zaretski in 12th place in the Ice Dance competition at the European Figure Skating Championships in Warsaw after the Compulsory Dance stage on Tuesday afternoon. The Israeli brother and sister team, which finished 22nd in the 2006 winter Olympics, came in 15th place in last year's European championships and will be hoping to improve on that result in Poland. The Zaretskis will return to action on Thursday and Friday when they perform their original dance and free dance, respectively. Israeli Sergei Kotov will enter the men's competition on Wednesday afternoon when he performs his short program. The last Israeli to compete will be Tamar Katz, who will skate her short program in the ladies' on Friday.
