They qualified for the 2005 Junior Grand Prix Final in their first year on the circuit, and placed sixth.
Although they placed seventh on the day, they were later moved up a spot to a sixth place finish at the 2007-2008 Junior Grand Prix Final following the retroactive disqualification of first-place-finishers Vera Bazarova & Yuri Larionov due to a positive doping sample from Larionov.
