It’s the first world title for the pair, which took bronze at the last two world championships. They were also part of the Canadian team that won silver in the team event at last year’s Sochi Olympics, where they finished seventh in the pairs competition.
“We’ve worked so hard to get here and it’s amazing.”
Thursday’s victory capped a perfect season for Duhamel, from Lively, Ont., and Radford, from Balmertown, Ont., who have won gold in every event they’ve entered in 2014-15, including the Grand Prix Final, Four Continents championships and Canadian championships.
“This is a very personal victory. Every single victory along the way this season had a very special meaning,” Duhamel said.
Sui Wenjing and Han Cong won the silver medal with a score of 214.12, leapfrogging Pang Qing and Tong Jian, who got the bronze with 212.77.
Pang and Tong, who came out of retirement this year to finish their careers in Shanghai, now have six world medals (two gold, one silver, three bronze) to go with their silver medal from the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
Peng Cheng and Zhang Hao finished fourth with 206.63 points.
