Well I like both versions but I think the new one works better. It's a clean, neat end. The final pose is just gorgeous. Glad that they kept the spin though!
@ 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.
