Hello everyone!

Well I have just begun resuming my training again a few days ago. It luckily wasn't too difficult, compared to other times.

I've been working quite a lot with Lori Nichol (my choreographer) making changes to both my programs. Not any big changes but quite important; in the short we've been working a few hours on just bringing out the emotion in the program, which will be very important once I get to worlds. In the long program we rearanged my elements and made some changes to my transitions in the program to make room for a second triple axel. I am planning to put in two triple axels at worlds, but we will give it a few weeks and make a final decision later. But another of my goals (other than to bring three men to next years world championships) is to land or at least attempt both triple axels in the long program at worlds.

Anyways I will talk to you all very soon! Take care everyone.

Hey everyone! Well I just got back from vancouver last night. Went to my first day at school and got a warm welcome. They actually surprised me by making me a big poster and hanging it at the front of the office.
For those who don't know I was second after the short program. I only made one mistake in the short, I put my hand down on the 3 axel.
On the day of my long program I didn't have the greatest practice nor the greatest 6 min. warmup. But I just trusted my training and let the program happen and I ended up delivering a flawless program. For more info you can check out the globe and mail website. So I ended up overall first. Now I'm gonna head to worlds in sweden around early march. My main goal there is to get 3 men to worlds in L.A. next year since it is very difficult to limit canada to only 2 men.
Anyways I'm going to begin to get back into training tommorow and I hope you enjoyed the national championships the past week if you got the chance to watch it. Well talk to all of you very soon, take care.
