Vanessa James and Eric Radford who, were involved in a crash with another figure skating couple during a practice session at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, took to the competition ring to compete.
James, from Toronto, and Radford, from Balmertown, Ont., scored 130.07 to finish fourth with their Pairs Free Program to Harry Styles' "Falling."
A day earlier, James collided with Italian Matteo Guarise. They were both skating backward when they crashed, Guarise almost coming over James' back. James said both she and Guarise were bruised by the incident.
The Canadians are making their Olympic debut together, Radford won two World Titles and Olympic Bronze with Meagan Duhamel, but came out of retirement at age 36 last spring to skate with James, a Toronto native who previously competed for France.
