The 2021-2022 figure skating season has started with a bang! So far this season, our fantastic skaters have garnered 11 medals. We look forward to watching them continue to achieve excellence this year and we want you all to join us in witnessing a fantastic season as our athletes are on the road to the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
Skate Canada is pleased to announce the start of a new production for Skate Canada hosted events which will be streamed live on CBC.ca and the CBC Gem App. We know our communities across Canada have greatly missed watching figure skating, which is why this enhanced production aims at providing positive analysis of our sport and a supportive approach to help skaters on their individual journeys to achieve excellence.
Skate Canada has put together an extraordinary team of former high performance athletes that will bring a fresh approach to skating coverage. We welcome Kevin Reynolds (Men), Kaetlyn Osmond (Women), Kaitlyn Weaver (Ice Dance), Meagan Duhamel (Pairs), Elladj Balde (Art of Performance), and Patrick Chan (Art of Skating) with host Ted Barton to provide us with excellent, honest, and compassionate coverage of performances.
We invite our community to join us with the launch of this new broadcast this week at Skate Canada International. Join us and engage with our broadcast team by asking questions to the commentators about the event, sport, and their own journeys. Send in your questions through email to [email protected] or text 1-604-418-3157.
