Worlds Season Blog – by pj kwong
The first of the events at the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2022 has wrapped up in Montpelier, France with a hearty congratulations to the podium finishers: Alexa Knierim and Brandon Frazier from the United States with Gold, from Japan Riku Miura and Ryuichi Kihara with Silver and in their first appearance at Worlds together, Canadians Vanessa James and Eric Radford took the Bronze.
For fellow Canadians and national silver medallists from Ontario Evelyn Walsh and Trennt Michaud (#TreVelyn) moved from eighth to sixth place overall, just one place shy of their fifth-place goal. Well done – we are #SkateOntarioProud especially in #WorldsSeason!
This is an event that is not for the faint of heart. During the free segment, Ashley Cain-Dribble and Timothy Leduc had to withdraw when Ashley took a nasty fall and had to be transported to hospital for observation.
During tomorrow’s competition, Canadian national champion and the pride of the Milton SC, Maddie Schizas will be looking to add to her outstanding performances this season during the free program. Maddie is currently in 10th place after the short program.
