KAUNAS, Lithuania – Emily Bausback of Vancouver gained five spots in the overall standings on Friday to place 12th in women’s competition at the third stop on the ISU Junior Grand Prix figure skating circuit.
Alexandra Trusova of Russia won the gold medal, Yelim Kim of South Korea was second and Kseniia Sinitsyna of Russia third.
Bausback was 17th after Thursday’s short program and produced the 10th best free skate on Friday to surge in the standings.
‘’The free program was a reflection of how I’ve been training the past two weeks,’’ said Bausback, 16. ‘’The short was pretty disappointing but today I felt I put it together and was much more focused.’’
In ice dancing after the short dance, Ashlynne Stairs of Barrie Ont., and Elliott Graham of Angus, Ont., are sixth and Irina Galiyanova of Toronto and Grayson Lochhead of Sweaburg, Ont., are eighth.
In Thursday’s short program, Joseph Phan of Laval, Que., is in fifth spot and Eric Liu of Edmonton 17th.
Competition ends Saturday with the free dance and men’s free skate.
