OTTAWA, ON: Three-time Canadian medallist Jeremy Ten, 26, Vancouver, B.C., announced his retirement from competitive skating today. Ten has competed internationally for Canada for 11 years. He is a three-time national team member, two-time world team member in 2009 and 2015, and is also a two-time Canadian junior medallist, winning the junior Canadian title in 2007.
“It was an honour and privilege this past season to represent Canada at my second world championships as the reigning Canadian silver medallist. I would like to thank Skate Canada for all their support and for giving me the opportunity to compete on the international stage for the last 11 years,” said Ten. “I couldn’t be more grateful for all the life experiences you can only learn while travelling the world, competing against the best in the world, and being a Canadian athlete.”
“Jeremy has been a big part of the Canadian skating scene for over a decade including representing Canada at two world championships,” said Mike Slipchuk, Skate Canada High Performance Director. “Skate Canada wishes Jeremy the best of luck in his next chapter and we look forward to seeing him staying involved in other capacities.”
Today Ten graduated from Simon Fraser University with a Bachelor of Arts in Health Sciences and minor in Kinesiology. Ten plans on staying involved in the sport as much as possible by exploring his options as a coach, focusing on choreography, as well as possibly getting involved in judging as a caller.
