Canadian junior ice dance champions Madeline Edwards and ZhoaKai Pang left a lot of points on the ice at the International Skating Union World junior figure skating championships in Milan, Italy.
Edwards and 17-yearold partner Pang from Burnaby were sixth following the short program, but fell to 12th after the free dance portion of the event last weekend.
Edwards and Pang performed a personal best 135point total at a Grand Prix event last year. The B.C. Centre of Excellence pair managed just 117.65 points at this year's worlds.
Russia's Alexandra Stepanova and Ivan Bukin garnered more than 150 points to win the ice dance gold.
Canada's Mackenzie Bent and Burnaby-born Garrett MacKeen were fourth following a 55.88 personal-best score in the short program. The Ontario couple placed fifth overall with a 128.79 total.
In the junior men's final, former Burnaby resident Nam Nguyen finished in 12th spot following a personal-best 172.58 point total that placed him ninth overall. Nguyen also skated a best-ever freeskate that garnered him 119.15 points in the long program at the junior worlds.
