I haven't been all that interested in skating this season but this is the ONE program I am really interested to see in all its glory. I saw Zach do a run through on his own during that IAM live feed they did dressed in black practice clothes and it really piqued my interest.
While the *********-19 ********* has made this skating season much more complicated, Team IDC wanted to continue its tradition of highlighting new teams. Jamie Fournier and Anthony Haddad are a new team that will represent Canada.
Anthony Haddad placed 7th in Novice at 2019 U.S. Nationals with Kelsey Schaub and they were among the 15 invited Novice teams that competed at the North American Cup in Lake Placid in late July/early August of 2019, placing 11th.
Found this French article about Fournier/Haddad that was published back in June 2020:
Translated excerpt:Jamie Fournier, de Boucherveille, et l’Américain Anthony Steven Haddad ne s’attendaient pas à être séparés par la fermeture des frontières tout juste après s’être choisis comme nouveaux partenaires en danse…www.lecourrierdusud.ca
Only 2 teams competed virtually in the Junior Dance event at Championnats A de la Section Québec. If Fournier/Haddad entered Challenge, the start orders are supposed be posted by Skate Canada the week of January 4, 2021. The Junior/Senior Dance events are scheduled to be streamed on January 16-17, 2021.
Neither new team is listed in the Skate Canada Challenge Junior RD starting order/streaming time sheet for Saturday, January 16 (Senior RD starting order times are listed here too) as of Jan. 4: https://noticeboard.skatecanada.ca/.../Junior-and-Senior-Rhythm-Dance-Timesheet.pdf... any info on new junior team Marine Pouliot and Cameron Colucci ? They seem to have gone quiet.

No, there is a list of skaters who are allowed to train under the elite athlete clause. However this was probably done right when Battle of Blades was taped as a Jordan was at Cricket then and it kind of looks like they used the moving camera.I wonder when that was filmed? Today or weeks ago? Because if it was today I don’t know how they’re allowed to practice at the Cricket. All private clubs in Toronto are closed and we are in lockdown.
YES!!Best program ever :
