Home skaters Arina Voevodina and Elizateva Martjukova placed first and third, respectively.

Sree, who has been training in Latvia since March last year, thanked Malaysians who have been supporting her. Her father, B, Chendren, did the same.

"Thank you to all Malaysians for blessing and supporting me," she reportedly said in a short video clip shared with the media yesterday.
