Sochi Olympics: Team Canada In Second At Team Figure Skating

Posted: Updated:

SOCHI, Russia - Canada looks poised to win a medal in the team figure skating event, but the Russians are doing their best to make sure it won't be gold.

Russia took a six-point lead over Canada after five events in the inaugural team competition after winning the pairs free skate.

Kirsten Moore-Towers of St. Catharines, Ont., and Toronto's Dylan Moscovitch earned nine points for Canada with a second-place finish in the pairs.

But Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov finished first, giving Russia 47 out of a possible 50 points.

Canada has 41 points and the United States 34 heading into the final three events.

The men's, women's and ice dance free skates go tomorrow.
