OBERSTDORF, Germany - Meagan Duhamel of Lively, Ont., and Craig Buntin of Kelowna, B.C., won the silver medal in the pairs event at the Nebelhorn Trophy competition Friday after making their international figure skating debut as partners.

World championship bronze medallists Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy of Germany placed first in both the short program and free skate to take the gold with 175.15 points. Duhamel and Buntin came second after posting the third best free skate at 147.86 and Amanda Evora and Mark Ladwig of the U.S., were third at 146.89.

Rachel Kirkland and Eric Radford of Toronto were fourth at 137.07.
"This was a really great first competition for us," said Buntin. "There wasn't any major mistakes tonight but there were little blips and misses here and there. But we really fought through that and for me that's the big highlight."
