Canadian Junior Skaters Impress at 2024 World Junior Figure Skating Championships

TAIPEI CITY, TAIWAN (March 2, 2024) – Canada’s next generation of figure skating talent closed out the 2024 ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships in Taipei City, Taiwan on Saturday with several top-10 performances, and many new personal best scores in the ice dance and men’s competitions.

Chloe Nguyen of Vancouver, B.C., and Brendan Giang of Burnaby, B.C., had the top result of the day finishing sixth overall with a new personal best total score of 151.09 in the ice dance competition – a solid improvement from their 14th-place finish at last year’s competition.

“We’re very happy with both of our performances at this event. We put in a lot of work and it paid off,” said Giang following their free dance which also scored a new personal best for the team of 89.87.

Layla Veillon and Alexander Brandys of London, Ont., weren’t far behind Nguyen and Giang, finishing eighth overall with a new personal best total score of 147.40. Alisa Korneva and Kieran MacDonald of Waterloo, Ont., finished the competition in 17th with a total score of 130.18.

Leah Neset and Artem Markelov of the USA won gold (169.76), while Elizabeth Tkachenko and Alexei Kiliakov of Israel captured silver (162.68), and Darya Grimm and Michaii Savitskiy of Germany took bronze (162.13).

The men’s competition closed out the event and saw Aleksa Rakic of Burnaby, B.C., finishing as the top Canadian in eighth place with a new personal best total score of 211.74, despite some small challenges with his free skate.

“The short was amazing with a new personal best and I’m really proud of that and making the final group,” said Rakic who skated a brilliant short program to set a new personal best on Thursday. “The long, I have mixed feelings. I gave my all, which you can’t be that upset with, but losing the levels on the spins at the end was costly, and that’s disappointing because I don’t usually make that mistake.”

Anthony Paradis of Boisbriand, Que., set new international best scores in both of his programs to finish with a score of 130.42 that saw him finish 15th overall.

Minkyu Seo of Korea won the junior men’s world championship title with a total score of 230.75. Rio Nakata of Japan came back from a disappointing short program to win the free skate and take silver overall (229.31), while Adam Hagara of Slovakia took bronze (225.61).

Kaiya Ruiter, 17, of Calgary, Alta., skated a strong program as well to finish the competition 21st overall with a total score of 161.19. 

“I enjoy every time I get to do that program. I just wanted to go out and enjoy doing it for one of the last times probably, and I did for sure. It’s been wonderful getting to have experience at both the junior and senior level and I’m excited for what’s to come,” said Ruiter, who cited her senior national title win earlier this season as the highlight of her year.

“The competition went really well. We had some blips going into this competition, but we rallied together and pulled each other up and took care of each other and put out two skates that we can be really proud of,” said Paige Westerman from the NEXXICE elite 12 team. “This is the first year for a lot of the girls on the senior team, so this is a really special way to end their first senior season, and being the first senior elite 12 champions is really cool since it’s such a new thing in Canada.”

Cho’s total score of 166.56 obliterated the record of 153.81 she set just two weeks ago at the 2024 Skate Canada Challenge – Pre-Novice/Novice competition held in Oakville, Ont.

“I feel amazing,” enthused Cho following her free skate performance. “This feels nice, but it’s not about winning, it’s about showing how much I love skating. I like both of my programs, I like my short music a lot, but I really like my long program because it has more jumps and I’m kind of a jumper.”

The women’s podium was a mirror image of the podium from the Skate Canada Challenge with Cho winning gold, Sandrine Blais of Quebec taking silver (133.90), and Ksenia Krouzkevitch of Ontario taking bronze (132.24).

The podium for ice dance looked quite similar to the Challenge podium as well with Laurence Brière of Carignan, Que., and Julien Lévesque of Boucherville, Que., winning gold again with an improved total score of 116.35. Taking silver this weekend however was Alyson Lacombe of St-Césaire, Que., and Morgan Laliberté-Laurent of Boucherville, Que., who captured bronze (108.38) at Challenge. Tasha Lai and Mickey Becker-Pos of Vancouver, B.C., the silver medallists from Challenge, took bronze (107.68).

“This is an awesome feeling. We’re really grateful for everything. Next year we’re going to junior, so we’re going be changing the program, changing category, so we’re going to be looking to improve everything,” said Lévesque.

There was a shuffle of the podium from Challenge in the pair competition as well, with Siyul Bella Back and Gavin Mahoney from Innisfail, Ont., improving from silver at Challenge to win gold at Canadian Championships with a total score of 116.84. Challenge’s gold medallists Remi Muramoto and Keith Lau of Mississauga, Ont., took silver this weekend with a total score of 111.90, and Julia Di Menna and Félix-Antoine Chartrand of Quebec, who had to withdraw from Challenge, took the bronze with a total score of 95.80.

“The competition went really well, it was the best performance we’ve had all season,” said Mahoney. “There were a lot of proud and fun moments here, but honestly, my proudest moment was finishing the competition here with Bella and being able to share that experience together.”

The men’s competition at Novice Canadians was the only category to truly see a change-up from the Skate Canada Challenge just two weeks ago, with Kento Nakashima of Edmonton, Alta., improving from a seventh-place finish at Challenge to win gold this weekend with a total score of 131.65 after posting top scores for both his short and free programs.

“I’m so excited and I’m overwhelmed that I took first place,” said Nakashima who finished eighth at the 2023 Novice Canadian Championships. “I feel like one of the factors that got me to first was that I was having fun, and I was confident, and I think that’s really important in skating.”

Rui Qin of Mississauga, Ont., the gold medallist at Skate Canada Challenge, took bronze this weekend with a total score of 122.44, while Travis Tang of Edmonton, Alta., the bronze medallist from Challenge took silver with a total score of 122.59.

Skate Canada to Appeal Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games Bronze Figure Skating Team Medal

Skate Canada, together with the Canadian athletes from the team figure skating event at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games and the Canadian Olympic Committee, have made the decision to formally appeal the International Skating Union’s (ISU) decision in respect of the bronze figure skating team medal. Our appeal is rooted in a commitment to fairness, transparency, and the integrity of the sport.

Skate Canada believes that it is crucial for the integrity of competitive figure skating that rules and regulations are upheld consistently and fairly. While we respect the decisions made by the ISU, we disagree with the conclusion they have reached and believe that an independent review will provide much needed clarity for all impacted parties.

While we pursue this appeal, we want to express our full support and admiration for the gold and silver medallists from the United States of America and Japan. Their hard work, dedication, and exceptional performances deserve to be recognized, and we sincerely hope that they receive their well-deserved medals in a timely manner.

We appreciate the support of the skating community as we pursue this matter further.

Fifteen Canadian Athletes to Compete on Home Soil at the 2024 ISU World Figure Skating Championships

OTTAWA, ON (February 14, 2024) – There is nothing quite like competing in front of a home crowd, and with the 2024 ISU World Figure Skating Championships being hosted at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Que., from March 18-24, Skate Canada is delighted to name the athletes that will have the opportunity to enjoy this unique milestone next month. 

Canadian athletes will be the ones to beat in both the pair and ice dance competitions as 2024 ISU Four Continents Champions Deanna Stellato-Dudek and Maxime Deschamps in pairs, and Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier in ice dance, headline Team Canada. 

Stellato-Dudek and Deschamps have been enjoying a fantastic season, racking up wins at the Autumn Classic International, Skate Canada International, the Cup of China, the Canadian National Skating Championships, and the Four Continents Championships. Based in Montreal, the pair specifically chose music composed by a Quebec artist for their short program. 

“When Maxime and I were brainstorming ideas for our short program, we knew we had to pay tribute to Maxime’s home and my adopted home of five years,” said Stellato-Dudek about their song choice of “Oxygène” from Cirque du Soleil. “We hope to thrill the audience and do Montreal proud.”  

Deschamps added: “Being able to compete in front of my family and friends will be incredible. I feel very privileged to have this opportunity in my career.” 

Also competing in the pair competition will be Lia Pereira and Trennt Michaud who finished second at the 2024 Canadian National Skating Championships and have stood on the podium at Skate America (silver), and the Grand Prix de France (gold) in their first Grand Prix season together. They will be joined by Kelly Ann Laurin and Loucas Éthier who took bronze at nationals and have top-8 finishes at the Four Continents Championships, NHK Trophy, and Skate Canada International to their credit this season. 

Gilles and Poirier will be among the top contenders in ice dance after claiming bronze at the event last year. The duo enters the competition as Champions at the Four Continents Championships, Cup of China, Skate Canada International, and Canadian National Skating Championships. They will have strong competition from teammates and Montreal natives Laurence Fournier Beaudry and Nikolaj Soerensen who recently captured silver at the 2024 Four Continents Championships, and who have podium finishes at the Grand Prix Espoo (silver) and Grand Prix de France (silver) this season. Rounding out Canada’s ice dance contingent are Quebec athletes Marjorie Lajoie and Zachary Lagha who won silver medals at both the Cup of China and Skate America this season. 

“Paul and I are so excited to be heading to Montreal for the World Championships,” said Gilles. “We had our first World Championships together as a team in London (Ontario), so we know the feeling of skating on home ice. What I remember most is having all our friends and family, and fans cheering for us, and it gave me goose bumps. If this Worlds can be anything like our first one in London, it’s going to be a success.” 

In the men’s competition, newly crowned Canadian champion Wesley Chiu will make his senior World Championships debut and will be joined by 2022 Olympian Roman Sadovsky. Both athletes finished in the top-10 at the recent Four Continents Championships and will be looking to gain valuable experience in front of the Canadian crowd. 

2022 Olympian Madeline Schizas will be Canada’s sole competitor in the women’s field and has had a strong season with a fourth-place finish at Skate Canada International and sixth at the ISU Four Continents Championships. She will be looking to use her years of experience at the international level to challenge the top women skaters in the world. 

The 2024 ISU World Figure Skating Championships will showcase the 200 best figure skaters from 50 countries in four disciplines: men, women, pair, and ice dance. Canada has previously hosted the World Championships 11 times, with Montreal having hosted twice – the last time in 1932.
