OSTRAVA, Czech Republic (AP) The International Skating Union has changed the short dance leaders at the European figure skating championships after a video review.

Anna Cappellini and Luca Lanotte of Italy were dropped to second and Ekaterina Bobrova and Dmitri Soloviev of Russia promoted to leaders.

The ISU says the review by the referee and technical panel showed the Italians performed an additional element in their short program, a rotational lift, and deducted 1.00 point from their initial result of 76.65 points.

That meant Cappellini and Lanotte scored 75.65, and the Russians took the lead with 76.18.

Defending champions Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron of France remained third with 75.48.

The free dance is scheduled for Saturday.
