Papadakis and Cizeron took second with 196.04 after breaking their own record in the free dance with 119.15. The United States won its only medal of the worlds as siblings Maia and Alex Shibutani took bronze with 185.18. Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje of Waterloo, Ont., finished fourth with a score of 184.81. Toronto's Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier of Unionville, Ont., were eighth with 178.99 points. Earlier Saturday, Toronto's Patrick Chan missed the medal podium in the men's competition. The three-time world champion finished fifth, falling two spots after Saturday's free program.
