(June 1, 2009) – Canada’s adult skaters will begin to return home this week as the 2009 ISU International Adult Competition in Oberstdorf, Germany wrapped up on Sunday May 31st. There were a total of 35 Canadian skaters registered for the events in the singles, pair and ice dance disciplines – and they did amazing! In addition to personal best performances, there were deep edges, perfect timing and Canadian pride with each skate. The event was hosted by the Deutsche Eislauf-Union at the Eislaufzentrum (also known as the Ice Dome) and saw over 200 skaters representing over 20 countries.
