    He has been skating in some ice shows.


    Here is a nice 2012 performance

    Love the unique position (I can't recall seeing anyone else do that one) in one of the spins.


    Did he compete under cop?

    He did (or under an earlier version of it), which is how he beat Plushenko at the 2003 GPF Final. Plushenko missed out on some points because of one of his jump choices, and because they were pretty even on the scores for all the other elements, Sandhu won.

    Very nice spin position. Will be interesting to see when it will be copied first and by whom.

    Didn't he make the butt spin big and we see a bunch of skaters copy it? For all his his skating truly is sublime.

    He was a good skater. But he tended to be quite slow. I really enjoyed his unique style, but his posture and carriage just always came across somewhat unnatural.

    Nice to see he's getting the most out of his old competitive costumes.

    He has such glorious speed and flow...when he's not competing...

    Let's see if he comes back.

    A thread will be started in the TV Alerts forum if/when it is confirmed that Challenge will be live streamed via Skatebuzz again this year.

    ETA: Skate Canada's event page currently says: "Live Streaming (all three rinks ) TBA"

    This link to the BC/YT Section website http://www.skatinginbc.com/ will give information on live streaming. Generally there is a link on the right hand side of the home page for any live streamed events.

    I think his ballet training made him a little stiff in his carriage.

    I saw him skate live several times and never thought he was slow. I thought he was average no better nor any worse than others.

    I would guess this must be an error. PJ called his return last year 'the shortest come-back of all time' - said it lasted about 10 minutes.

    Is there no way to confirm whether this is a mistake or not?

    I would love this to be true but I'm not getting my hopes up after last year!

    I think Shae & Eman would have been great (2 divas in a nice way) but personally I always thought he would make a beautiful pairs skater...

    The announcement - real or not - skate or not - has sent me to watch Youtube videos.
    This man was just far too good to have not been better than he was. If that makes any sense.

    Eman has smouldering dark good looks. He wouldn't have problem looking for a partner for ice dancing?!

    I totally loved Eman when he was skating. After he won the GPF beating Plushy I thought he would up the ante and get more consistent. I heard he had a hopeless work ethic but what a gorgeous skater when he was on.

    It's no mistake ... Emanuel Sandhu is indeed scheduled to compete at the Challenge.

    Skate Canada Press Release

    In addition three-time Canadian Champion Emanuel Sandhu, 32, Vancouver, B.C., will compete in Regina for the first time since the 2006-2007 season.
