The best amateur figure skaters on the planet are gathered in Shanghai for the World Figure Skating Championships.
Competition starts tomorrow with the Ice Dancing short program and will continue until March 28 with the Men’s and Women’s Free Program.
According to Lori Ewing of the Canadian Press, Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford, who will represent Canada in pairs, are favourite to win gold. They have won in every event this season, so will look to continue their run of dominance.
Ice Dance partners, Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje have also fared well this season and are favoured to win gold in the tourney too.
Canadian Men’s Champion, Nam Nguyen, 16 has had trouble landing the quad in competition this year but will need to find a home for it in his program if he wants to place among the top men this year.
Gabrielle Daleman, 17 will be one of Canada’s representatives for women this year. She finished 13th at this event last year and is hoping to improve upon those result this time around.
