Olympic Spotlight : Julianne Séguin / Charlie Bilodeau
Julianne Séguin and Charlie Bilodeau are off to the Olympic Winter Games for the first time.
One year after missing the Canadian championships as Séguin recovered from a concussion, the rising stars from Montreal made a successful return to nationals with a silver medal at the 2018 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships, punching their ticket to PyeongChang 2018 as one of three Canadian pair entries.
On the ISU Grand Prix circuit this past season, Séguin and Bilodeau placed fifth at the Rostelecom Cup and fourth at NHK Trophy.
After a brilliant junior career which included a silver medal at the 2015 ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships, Séguin and Bilodeau notched their first Grand Prix win at 2016 Skate America. They went on to place fifth at the ISU Grand Prix Final, their second consecutive top five finish at that event.
As juniors, Séguin and Bilodeau won both ISU Junior Grand Prix events they competed in in 2014 before winning the ISU Junior Grand Prix Final in just their second season together.
Séguin has skated in both pairs and singles, and won the junior women’s bronze medal at the 2012 Canadian championships.
