When it comes to having experienced world figure skating championships held in Canada, few skaters can match six-time U.S. champion and six-time world medalist Todd Eldredge. The three-time Olympian competed at three worlds in Canada, all of which he remembers fondly. While each world championships brings up different memories, there is one consistent theme: The fans were loud and intense.
"They're ridiculously outrageous, and they love skating," Eldredge, 41 said. "Obviously, they have huge respect for their own Canadian athletes, but they have huge respect for all athletes that are there. I always felt right at home when I was competing there.
