Two-time Olympian Brendan Kerry has achieved his best ever finish at the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships in Anaheim, CA, USA, with a ninth place performance.

The result betters his previous best performance at the Four Continents, which was an 11th place finish in 2017 in Gangneung, Korea.

Even more impressive for Kerry was that he achieved a personal best total points score of 224.44, and 147.63 personal best for the free skate round.

His PB scores come on the back of landing a total of three quads between the short and free program. 

Also in action for Australia in the men's event was Andrew Dodds, who achieved personal bests for total score, short program, and free skate to finish in 13th and Mark Webster who also had personal best scores, finishing in 24th.

In the ladies event, 2018 Olympian Kailani Craine made a strong start to the competition with a tenth place short program, achieving a personal best score of 60.64.

In the free skate, Craine moved back in the standings with a 17th place finish, which gave her an overall ranking of 15th for the event.

Unfortunately 2014 Olympian Brooklee Han suffered an injury in official practice and was unable to compete in the ladies free skate. Han was in 14th place after the short program before her injury.

Australia had two couples compete in the Ice Dance, with Chantelle Kerry and Andrew Dodds in tenth, with Matilda Friend and William Badaoui in 12th.
