Vanessa James and Eric Radford took to the center rink in the Pair’s Short Program at Skate Canada International, the second stop on the ISU Grand Prix circuit.
James and Radford finished the Short Program in fifth with a score of 65.02.
Radford has also been contending with a knee injury since Finlandia, suffered in the free after being kicked by James on their side-by-side triple toes.
The pair said they've been improving transitions and finessing elements since their opening competitions, including shifting around the music arrangement of their free.
"One of our main goals is to continue the momentum and progression that we gain each day and each time we come out in competition," James said, adding that while expectations are coming from themselves and others, they hope to simply enjoy the opportunity to skate again.
