How do you say "third" in Suomitalk?

According to AFP, Laura Lepisto maintained her position and took third place.

Italy's Carolina Kostner retained her European figure skating title on Saturday with a flawless performance played out to Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantasia.

Kostner kept the trophy she won in Warsaw in 2007 with 171.28 points while Switzerland's Sarah Meier, finished runner-up for the second season in succession with 169.44 points. Finland's Laura Lepisto, on 165.65, took bronze.

Meier had been fourth after Friday's short programme but saved her best until last with an error-free performance to Tokuhide Niimi's La Folia in Black and Red Autumn....

The bronze medal place was a closely-fought tussle between Lepisto and Finnish compatriot Kiira Korpi, who was third in Warsaw.

Korpi had been second after the short programme, one place ahead of her teammate, but Lepisto put in an ambitious performance to the theme from Don Juan de Marco and edged the bronze despite a fall on her triple toe-loop.
