FSWer, feel free to ask questions in this thread if you want to know about the status of specific skaters or teams that you're not sure about.From the time he was seven, Bryce Davison represented the Hamilton Skating Club on the world stage as a competitive figure skater. Now retired from competing, he's representing the club in a new way: as a coach to some of Canada's best new talent.
"It's about giving back," Davison said in a phone interview from the 2013 Canadian Tire National Figure Skating Championships in Mississauga.
"We're all in it to help young skaters — and this sounds corny, but it's the truth — to help young skaters become the best that they can be."
