Kaetlyn Osmond, Gabrielle Daleman make history at figure skating worlds

Canadians Kaetlyn Osmond and Gabrielle Daleman captured silver and bronze, respectively, at the world figure skating championships Friday in Helsinki.

Osmond of Marystown, N.L., finished with a score of 218.13, while Daleman of Newmarket, Ont., took third with 213.52 points.

The Canadian skaters are the first to win two medals in the same women's event.

Joannie Rochette was the last Canadian woman to win a medal at the world championships, earning silver in Los Angeles.

Russia's Evgenia Medvedeva won gold with a score of 233.41.

Medvedeva broke her own world record total score as she became the first woman to win back-to-back titles since 2001.

The 17-year-old Russian's free program ended with an expression of despair as her character learned she lost a loved one, but that quickly turned to a broad grin of satisfaction with another impeccable skate.
