OTTAWA, ON: Following a ninth-place finish at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, the pair team of Julianne Séguin, 21, Longueuil, Que., and Charlie Bilodeau, 24, Trois-Pistoles, Que., have decided to end their skating partnership. Séguin and Bilodeau teamed up in November of 2012 and quickly ascended national and international pair rankings.
Early in their partnership, Séguin and Bilodeau became Canadian junior silver medallists in 2014, won the ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final in 2014, and became world junior silver medallists in 2015.
At the senior level, the pair were three-time Canadian medallists (silver in 2016 and 2018 and bronze in 2015), two-time medallists on the ISU Challenger Series (gold in 2016 and bronze in 2017 – both at Autumn Classic International), and three-time medallists on the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating circuit (bronze at 2015 Skate America, bronze at 2015 Trophée Éric Bompard and gold at 2016 Skate America). They also competed at the ISU World Figure Skating Championships three times, with their best result, an eighth-place finish, coming in 2015.
As of now, Séguin and Bilodeau have not announced any further plans and will be taking time to reflect on their future paths.
