James & Radford Finish 12th in Olympics

Vanessa James and Eric Radford finished 12th in the Pair Skating - Free Skating Results - Olympic Figure Skating in Beijing.

The pair finished with a combined score of 180.99.

Following their performance James and Radford remembers thinking about how he would've laughed had someone suggested a comeback before this journey began.

Radford remembers marveling at how China's Zhao Hongbo captured Olympic Pairs Gold with his wife Shen Xue back at the 2010 Games -- at age 36.

Radford was just 25 at the time.

"I remember thinking 'That is crazy,"' Radford said.

Now who's the crazy one?

Radford, now 37 and with hair more salt than pepper, was back on Olympic ice, finishing 12th in the pairs short program with partner Vanessa James, 34, at the Beijing Games.

Certainly neither veteran skater saw another Olympics in their future, and moments after their skate, someone asked them what they would have said had this possibility been raised a year or two ago.

"You are insane," Radford said with a laugh.

"You must be joking," James added. "And here we are!"
