Call me crazy, but I prefer Weaver and Poje to Virtue and Moir. They may not be as technically good as Tessa and Scott, but it doesn't matter.They've still got the advantage of having more exciting programs imo.“Even when I’m winning; hands-down the best, it’s a struggle,” he says. Just get me through this.’ It’s like surgery.” , remains unchanged from the past season.He’s even wearing last year’s skates—something pretty much unheard of at the elite level—because he never broke in the new pairs to his liking. He’s going to get out and meet his fellow athletes, watch other events, and simply enjoy the Olympic experience. I just need to believe in it when I get to Sochi,” he says.And I’ll think of the one place I look when I’m training—some metal scaffolding for the stairs and bleachers beyond the glass and the barrier in the rink,” says the 23-year-old Torontonian. It’s like your blankie.” Chan has long felt as though his best performances are the ones that come before the fewest witnesses—which is saying something, given his three consecutive World titles, seven Canadian championships and the trophy case chocked with hardware earned at figure skating’s biggest events.“That’s my cue to say, ‘Okay, this is just like what I do every day.’ And I’ll think about my friends who sometimes watch me and how they clap along the way. But winning has rarely been as much fun—or as satisfying—as those ebullient skates in practice, where he soars through the quads and gets lost in the music.
There will be 20 hours of television coverage of the event on CTV/TSN. Thompson said that 12 million Japanese viewers watched the Skate Canada International gala from Kelowna, B.
But suddenly, Weaver discovered that her “dream partner” was available and she found herself driving to Canada, all pins and needles.
She had resigned herself to skating by herself for the next season.
“This might be something really good…I thought this might be the opportunity I was looking for.” “My first thought was, this girl was quiet,” Poje said.
Weaver admitted she was intimated by the 6-foot-3 “gorgeous” Poje, who was more accomplished in his skating career than she was at the time. Now Poje says that he feels lucky to have Weaver as a partner and “now she proves to me every day that she is better than me.” Coach Rebecca Babb took Weaver aside and told her: “Kaitlyn, it’s okay to smile.” Weaver had been so intent and so nervous about winning Poje’s hand that she forgot to be herself. Those kids at the rink, I can’t thank them enough.” Weaver and Poje had their first international completion only six weeks after they joined forces. They are two of hundreds of skaters who have shown up this week in Kingston.
Maybe Andrew and Kaitlyn are dating and keeping it very quiet; maybe they are attracted to each other but not acting on it.
