TALLINN, Estonia – Patricia Andrew of London, Ont., and Zachary Daleman of Newmarket, Ont., climbed to an 11th place finish in pairs on Thursday at the ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships.

The Russians swept the medals with the gold going to Apollinariia Panfilova and Dmitry Rylov.

Andrew and Daleman were 14th after Wednesday’s short program and delivered the 11th best free skate for the best improvement of the day over yesterday’s result.

Kelly Ann Laurin of St-Jerome, Que., and Loucas Ethier of St-Eustache, Que., were 14th.

In ice dancing after the rhythm dance, Emmy Bronsard and Aissa Bouaraguia of Montreal are eighth, Natalie D’Alessandro and Bruce Waddell of Toronto ninth and Miku Makita and Tyler Gunara of Vancouver 10th.

“We improved a lot from our last competition,” said Waddell. “We showed more attack and speed into our elements and didn’t hold back at all. We were really focused on the technical side. Our levels were higher and it was one of our better skates this season.”

Competition continues Friday with the men’s free skate and women’s short program.
