Skate Canada International

Heyy Everyone,
This weekend was the Homesense Skate Canada International. This year it was held in Ottawa, and the Canadians did us proud. We brought home medals in every event. Gold in the men and women competition and silver in dance and pairs. I personally love to watch the skating and I am so proud of the Canadian team. It looks like we are well prepared for Vancouver 2010.

Jessica Dube and Bryce Davidson are amazing. I don't love them as much as I loved Jamie and David, but I still find them a joy to watch.
Patrick Chan showed what he could do when he beat Jeffery Buttle (who recently announced his retirement) at the past Canadians.I don't know much about Ice dance personally, but I love to watch it because it is "pure" skating. It is more about the edges since there are no jumps. It was Vanessa Crone and Paul Poirier's first time competing at an international senior event, and they did amazing.

Joannie Rochette blew the competition out of the water, winning by about 20 points. She has grown so much in the past year. The women's event is the one I most identify with (since I skate singles).
Congrats to all the skaters, and good luck in their next competitions.
I haven't done a Canadian Designer post in a while, so I will do one within the next week or so.
I hope that everyone has an amazing week.
Love,
belle
