James and Radford Win Bronze Medal at ISU Championships

Canadians Vanessa James and Eric Radford concluded their first season together with a Bronze Medal in pairs at the ISU World Figure Skating Championships.

Alexa Knierim and Brandon Frazier of the U.S. won the Gold Medal with 221.09 points. Riku Miura and Ryuichi Kihara of Japan were second at 199.55 and James and Radford completed the podium with a season’s best 197.32.

The veteran Canadian skaters were fifth after the short program. They gained a spot when Americans Ashley Cain-Gribble and Timothy Leduc, second after the short, withdrew. Cain-Gribble was injured when she fell on a jump halfway through the program. The Canadians also passed Georgian couple Karina Safina and Luka Berulava in the standings.

‘’It was amazing to have that skate,’’ said Radford, now living in Montreal. ‘’It was an incredible and unforgettable experience for us even as experienced competitors that we are. The technical aspects were there today but we really got to release and feel that skate from the heart and that’s the best feeling.’’

Both Radford and James joined forces in April 2021 after decorated careers with other partners.

‘’Everything came together just as we needed to,’’ said James, from Toronto. ‘’We didn’t just fight, we didn’t just skate and think about the elements we really performed it and felt comfortable on the ice.’’
