Silver and bronze for Canadian ice dancers at U.S. International Figure Skating Classic

Monday, September 16, 2013

SALT LAKE CITY - Ice dance teams Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje of Waterloo, Ont., and Nicole Orford and Burnaby, B.C., and Thomas Williams of Okotoks, Alta., earned silver and bronze medals on Saturday to conclude the U.S. International Figure Skating Classic.

Two-time world champions Meryl Davis and Charlie White of the U.S., won the gold medal with 183.69 points. Weaver and Poje followed at 161.99 and Orford and Williams were third at 137.60.

In women’s singles, Courtney Hicks led an American medal sweep with 171.88 points. Amelie Lacoste of Delson, Que., ranked fourth in both the short program and Saturday’s long program for fifth overall at 147.88.

Lacoste introduced her new routine which she will use in her bid to land a spot on the Olympic team. It is choreographed by Shae-Lynn Bourne.

”It’s a good start to the season,” said Lacoste, 24, the 2012 Canadian champion. ”I lost my focus at the end of my program and that hurt my standing. But this is a program I love and right now I need to gain more confidence on my jumps.”

On Friday, Kirsten Moore-Towers of St. Catharines, Ont., and Dylan Moscovitch of Toronto successfully defended their pairs title.
