However, they were forced to withdraw from the competition in the middle of their free dance due to injury. Samuelson fell shortly into the program, and Bates, in an effort to avoid colliding with her head, leaped over her and landed on Samuelson's left hand, and wound up severing the tendon in her middle finger.
