The Skate Canada website said, “Canada’s Vanessa James and Eric Radford won Friday’s free skate in pairs but it wasn’t enough to lift them into the medals at the Golden Spin of Zagreb, an event on the ISU Challenger Series circuit.

“The first-year partners took fourth spot overall on the strength of a personal best free skate score of 130.83 for 187.57 total. Unfortunately, the short program on Thursday didn’t go as well as they stood ninth.
