Anyone know what she's doing these Days?
Last time I checked, she and her current partner, Eric Radford, were preparing to represent Canada in the Grand Prix Final in Sochi, Russia next month
Maybe you mean Jessica Dube?
Meagan is well and skating well with her partner Eric Radford.
^^^Pointing to Mevrouw's signature -- we have no idea what goes on in people's lives and why they may or may not know information some of us take for granted.
FSWer - you should look up Duhamel and Radford's performances this year on the Grand Prix Circuit!
Some of D&R's performances at this year's Grand Prix.

I'll also be seeing her and Eric skate in a few weeks during a Celebration On Ice tour stop. Can't wait, as it'll be the first time Megan's been home w/Eric to skate/perform since she and Eric won their National Title in January. The ol Arena will be rocking in a few weeks.
FSWer has mentioned that YouTube videos can't be viewed on the webtv browser/Internet connection on his computer. That's probably why he asked here recently why NBC doesn't show pairs (or dance) because that's the only way he can watch figure skating.
Here's a new article on Meagan Duhamel about her and Eric Radford's busy December schedule : http://www.thesudburystar.com/2012/11/22/duhamel-wins-another-silver
Maybe this thread was started because it's about time Meagan got her own thread! Meagan sat behind me at the 2008 Canadian Championships. I wanted to wish her good luck for Worlds, but there didn't seem to be an appropriate time to jump into their conversation. And I got shy. But she seemed very sweet. And pretty.
Oh yes, she is so pretty.
Pretty and looks like she could break you in half with her arms! What a combination! She is a feisty one!
We are at post #15 about a Canadian skater and there have been zero comments about how much she/he is over-marked.
Now you've done it...they'll come crawling out of the woodwork any moment!
To the contrary ... D/R are NOT over-marked, IMO. Their fp performance at last year's Canadian Nationals was the stuff of magic -- they were in a zone and their reactions right after their performance said it all (even before they received any marks). Skating in the end is all about magic and living up to and realizing your dreams.
I watched the CBC coverage of the Pairs Free Skate from TEB and though I realized it was pretty good and I was very happy for them as I like them a lot, it wasn't until they showed a replay without commentary the next day that I realized how much magic there was in that performance too. Of course I could also relax more then as I already knew they had the best free skate of the day.
Would someone outside Canada please test out this link and see if this TEB performance is accessible - not geoblocked? If it works then maybe FSWer will be able to see it too as it is not YouTube. You have to watch a couple of ads first but that's all.
When I clicked on the link provided or when I pasted the link into the address bar-I was not taken to the video, but to the cbc.ca/player homepage. On the homepage, I put Meagan Duhamel's name in the search box, and was able to get a listing on the videos that way. I'm in the U.S. and was able to watch the video, without being geoblocked.
Ah that's good. Would you mind terribly trying this slightly different link too just to see if it works any better? I really can't tell because the first link seemed to take me directly to their video when I tried it myself.
P.S. to Eric, in case he's reading this: We love you too!!
That version works perfectly.
They are so adorable people. I ask them an autograph at the TEB and Eric even speak to me in french with the cutest accent ever. Meagan was a bit disappointed about her mistake (it was after the SP), but she was very available.
LOL. But they are not overmarked. I am seriously thinking they have a great shot at Bronze at GPF and Worlds. They are getting better, more consistent and more interesting all the time. Love them, love their athleticism and their attitude. And I am not Canadian .
The vid works fine in France.
You? Shy? PeterG?
Yes...Megan is very buff, but still very tiny......and a very pretty girl . She always seems so animated and I find that charming.
This link is good. Thank you!
I think one of the most endearing qualities about Meagan is that she is as much of a skating fan as she is an accomplished skater!!! You can tell that she loves every aspect of skating so much....she's definitely one of the best ambassadors for the sport!!
While I find they sometimes look slightly junior-ish, I do think that Meagan and Eric have some of (if not THE) best side by side spins in the world today. Their unison is just outstanding.
