Gabrielle Daleman Satisfied with Seventh at Warsaw Cup

WARSAW – Two-time Olympian Gabrielle Daleman of Newmarket, Ont., gained some confidence on Saturday with a seventh-place finish in the women’s competition at the Warsaw Cup, an event on the ISU Challenger Series figure skating circuit.

Maiia Khromykh of Russia won the gold medal with 194.02 points followed by Niina Petrokina of Estonia in second at 188.86 and Ekaterina Kurakova of Poland in third at 187.80.

Daleman, who helped Canada win Olympic gold in the team event in 2018, was fifth after Thursday’s short program.

‘’It was an unusual schedule here, so I was pleased with how I managed everything,’’ said Daleman. ‘’My goal here was just to get out in front of a crowd and judges for only the second this season. My skate wasn’t perfect, but I kept fighting and took it step by step.’’

In ice dancing, Molly Lanaghan, and Dmitre Razgulajevs of Ajax, Ont., produced the seventh best free dance but remained eighth overall. The event was won by Diana Davis and Gleb Smolkin of Russia.

The highlight for Canada here this week was Wesley Chiu of Richmond, B.C., winning the men’s free skate on Friday to jump from 11th to fourth overall.
