Duhamel and Radford take bronze at worlds

Duhamel and Radford take bronze at worlds

By Asif Hossain

Olympic figure skaters Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford won the bronze medal at the 2014 World Figure Skating Championships on Thursday in Saitama, Japan.

In second place heading into the free skate, Duhamel and Radford finished with total score of 210.84. Their season’s best score landed them a World Championship podium place for the second straight year. The pair finished third in London, Ontario in 2013.

Duhamel and Radford won a silver medal at Sochi 2014 in the team event before finishing seventh in the Olympic pairs competition.
