With respect to this month’s Skate Ontario Skater in Residence Carol Lane, we couldn’t have said this better ourselves!
From CBC’s media pages (https://www.cbc.ca/mediacentre/bio/carol-lane ):
“World and Olympic Games figure skating coach and choreographer Carol Lane has more than three decades of experience to draw from in her role as analyst for CBC/Radio Canada’s figure skating coverage. Lane’s in-depth knowledge and firsthand experience with coaching and choreography provided unique insight into the technical aspects of the competition at Sochi 2014 and PyeongChang 2018.
She is well-known to Canadian figure skating fans, having provided analysis to CBC Sports’ coverage of the sport at the Grand Prix and World Championship level over the past several years.
Lane began her skating career in London, England, at the age of seven. With a natural affinity for ice dance, she teamed with her first partner at the age of fifteen and competed in Junior Nationals. The following season she and her partner competed in both Junior and Senior Nationals. Lane then moved to Queens Ice Club, the premier training centre for international ice dancing where, under the direction of Jon Lane and Gladys Hogg M.B.E., she became a regular on the international competition circuit, gaining a Senior National Championship bronze medal and an alternate spot on the World and Olympic team.
Lane has taught extensively in Europe and North America, and her students are currently competing regularly at the national, international and world levels.”
