A second-place finish in the short programme and third in their free dance saw British skaters Anastasia Vaipan-Law and Luke Digby land the Silver medal for pairs skating at the 2023 Warsaw Cup.

Fellow British pairs skaters Lydia Smart and Harry Mattick narrowly missed out on a podium finish, finishing just 1.17 points short of Bronze medallists Ioulia Chtchetinina and Michal Wozniak; a fantastic result for an exciting up and coming pair of skaters.
