Canadian ice dancers claim silver, bronze at Four Continents


Canadian ice dancers Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje captured silver, while compatriots Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier earned bronze at the Four Continents figure skating championship in Anaheim, Calif.


Madison Chock and Evan Bates of the United States, who entered the free dance in second, seized gold on Sunday while fellow Americans Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue dropped off the podium entirely.

Chock and Bates posted the highest score in the free dance — 126.25 points — to finish with 207.42 overall. Gilles and Poirier’s free score of 124.40 was better than Weaver and Poje’s 123.37, but the latter duo claimed silver due to a stronger score in the rhythm dance on Friday.

Coverage from Anaheim continues at 9 p.m. ET with the gala.
