On cloud nine and refusing to come down!
It was clunky I think ... they couldn't get it to flow at both Thornhill and TEB and got quite a bit of flak for it. Maybe they just decided that it would be better to change the ending.

@ anne-marie: They broke character, yes. I'm not sure whether they actually STOPPED skating altogether (might have, but the camera angle in slow mo makes it hard to tell). Only one full stop (10 secs) or two stops (5 secs) is allowed; they could've gotten dinged on that.
