Here we are for another week of great skating! We're almost to the Grand Prix series, but this week's Skate Canada Autumn Classic gives us a chance to see a few more of the big names before they hit the circuit. Luckily for us fans, there is a live stream http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x38z4ee_aci-stinger-english_sport. Check out all of the competition info at http://skatecanada.ca/event/2015-autumn-classic-international/
Yzuru Hanyu highlights the men's event, along with Nam Ngyuen. Unfortunately, Denis Ten will not compete here as scheduled. I wish we would've been able to see Denis at least once before Skate America, but I wish him the best.
Elizabet Tursynbaeva will be a medal favorite in the ladies event. I am also looking to see Haruka Imai before Skate America, as well as Americans Angela Wang, Amber Glenn and Bradie Tennell.
Hometown kids and World Champs Megan Duhamel and Eric Radford should win the pairs event, and I'm excited to see a good feed of their new programs. Also interested to see Mervin Tran and Marissa Castelli compete again and hoping to see improvement in their programs before their Grand Prix assignments.
Cheers to a good competition this week, and an even bigger cheers to Skate America next week!
