James & Cipres Finish 5th in Skating Championships
Vanessa James/Morgan Cipres have finished fifth overall competing in the 2019 ISU World Figure Skating Championships in Japan.
2019 European Champions James and Cipres rallied back from a disappointing Short Program, coming third in the Free Skating and pulling up from seventh to fifth on 215.19 points.
China’s Wenjing Sui and Cong Han soared to the Pairs Gold Medal, while Russia’s Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov settled for the Silver Medal and their teammates Natalia Zabiiako and Alexander Enbert earned the Bronze. All three teams set new seasons best scores.
