TORONTO, ON – At the conclusion of the highly successful 2013 Canadian Tire National Figure Skating Championships Skate Canada named the teams for two of the three upcoming ISU Championships.
“We have just seen a tremendous week of skating here at all levels, in novice, junior and senior. The impact of the developmental programs at our Skate Canada sections across the country was evident as we saw champions come from many different regions in Canada,” said Mike Slipchuk, Director of High Performance for Skate Canada. “We are confident that as we now send our skaters out on the international stage, they will all challenge for the podium and championship titles with the best in the world at both the senior and junior level. We are very proud of the strong teams that will represent us at the 2013 ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships® in Osaka, Japan and the ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships ® in Milan, Italy.”
