WARSAW – Canadian teams in pairs and ice dancing launched their international careers at the Warsaw Cup, a stop on the ISU Challenger Series figure skating circuit, which continued on Saturday.
In ice dancing, Emmy Bronsard of Montreal and Jacob Richmond of St-Lambert, Que., took seventh overall. They ranked seventh for their rhythm dance on Friday and sixth for their free skate, performed to a Pink Floyd medley, on Saturday.
They were less than two points from a top-five finish. Bronsard was ninth at the 2020 world juniors with another partner but this was her first international assignment with Richmond.
Loicia Demougeot and Theo le Mercier of France, who posted two fourth place finishes this season on the Grand Prix circuit, won the gold medal.
In pairs, Tilda Alteryd and Gabriel Farand of Oakville, Ont., placed ninth. The event was won by world junior silver medallists Anastasia Golubeva and Hektor Giotopoulos Moore of Australia.
The Challenger Series provides opportunities for senior skaters to compete at an international level and earn world ranking points.
The next competition is December 7-10 in Zagreb.
