OTTAWA, ON: 2015 Canadian Champion Nam Nguyen, 17, Toronto, Ont., has made a coaching and training location change. Nguyen will be relocating to San Jose, California, USA to train with coach David Glynn.

“After a difficult season of not achieving my goals I needed a fresh start,” said Nguyen. “I am thankful for all that Brian and Ernest have taught me over my years with them. I am looking forward to training in a new environment and to working towards my goals for next season with David in San Jose.”

Nguyen had trained with Brian Orser and Ernest Pryhitka at the Toronto Cricket Skating & Curling Club since 2012.

“After careful consideration and discussion with Nam’s parents, we believe a new start will be best for Nam. The move to David Glynn is a good fit,” said Brian Orser. “I wish Nam all the best and I am confident he will rise again.”

Nguyen will relocate to San Jose in May.
