    Thanks so much skatesindreams! I think it's definitely one that needs to be given more than a passing thought and could really rejuvenate skating right now.

    If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring three things with you, what would they be?

    A: One girl, some music and a boat to escape!
    That made me laugh . Thank you for another interesting interview.

    You know what, MissJD? Sometimes you simply HAVE to gush a little? I thought and think Pechalat & Bourzat are simply marvellous & it was such a treat to speak with Fabian! Glad you enjoyed it.

    He really is! What a pleasure it was to do this one.

Thanks to the wonderful folks at Skate Canada, I have interviews coming with Canadian Olympic team members Kaetlyn Osmond, Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje, Kevin Reynolds, Alexandra Paul and Mitch Islam and Gabby Daleman. That's not all... 2 time Olympic Silver Medallist and World Champion Brian Orser, Olympic coach Michelle Leigh, two time Canadian Champion Cynthia Phaneuf and many more interviews with Canadian skaters (see the link below for the full list!). I also have some wonderful Canadian skating history and much more coming too:

    After taking a look at Norval Baptie: The Father Of The Ice Show on Canada Day yesterday, Canada Month on the blog continues today with the first of MANY interviews we'll see this month! Jeff Langdon twice stood on the senior medal podium at the Canadian Figure Skating Championships and he also twice finished in the top ten at the World Figure Skating Championships. At the 1998 Canadian Figure Skating Championships in Hamilton, Ontario, the pressure couldn't have been any more on all of the athletes competing, and a young skater then fresh out of the junior ranks named Emanuel Sandhu surprised everyone by skating to a silver medal ahead of Langdon. Instead, Skate Canada sent Langdon, who had proven himself in national and international competition, to the Nagano Winter Olympic Games. Again in a position to prove himself, Langdon passed the test with flying colors, skating two very strong programs to finish in the top ten in his trip to the Olympics in what was a very deep field of skaters. Retiring from competitive skating in 2001, Langdon skated professionally with Willy Bietak and Holiday On Ice and now acts as a coach at Calgary's Calalta Community Figure Skating Club alongside World Ice Dance Champion Paul Thomas, Canadian Pairs Champions Annabelle Langlois and Cody Hay and U.S. Champion Scott Davis. Jeff took the time to talk about his own competitive career, coaching, his love of skating and much more in this fantastic interview:

    Winning the Canadian junior title in 2012, Gabby Daleman's rise to the top of Canadian ladies figure skating has been fast and fearless. The last two seasons, she has finished second on the senior ladies podium at the Canadian Championships and this season earned the right to represent Canada at both the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia and 2014 World Figure Skating Championships in Saitama, Japan. She placed in the top twenty in both events and proved that she is indeed a force to be reckoned with. The young rising star from Newmarket, Ontario took the time to talk about the Olympics, her goals for next season and much more in this short but sweet interview. Big thanks to Danielle Earl for the wonderful photographs!:

    Quebec's Veronik Mallet is one of many Canadian ladies skaters that you absolutely want to be keeping your eye on. After winning medals on both the novice and junior level nationally, she finished in the top five at the Canadian Figure Skating Championships in her first year as a senior skater in 2013. Not to be outdone, she followed that up with a fourth place finish at this year's Nationals. She's represented Canada internationally as well at the Four Continents Championships, Skate Canada International and the Nebelhorn Trophy. With another appearance on the ISU Grand Prix circuit looming this fall, Veronik took the time to talk about her competitive career so far, working with some of skating's most brilliant choreographers, her favourite skaters and much more in this must read Canada Month interview:

    What a fascinating and accomplished young man!
    Thanks for the "introduction",

    I'm learning a great deal more about Canadian skaters from your articles.
