Meagan and Eric were beaten by S/S, V/T, T/T and P/T. No surprise about S/S, V/T, and P/T. T/T did surprisingly well, but on a different day K/S and B/L could have performed better than they did. Bottom line - fifth was an excellent result for Meagan and Eric. Could MT-M have achieved eighth place? Maybe, but no guarantees. So to say that the two teams together would have earned three places for Canada in pairs at the next WCh is by no means certain.
