That's too bad... I thought anyone could get Canadian citizenship. :p

 

No Olympics for Deanna Stellato-Dudek, the fanciest of the fancy names. :(

She is aiming for the 2026 Olympics, where she would be... 42.

:CAN Canadian National Championships, final results

 

Men's Single (2 quotas available)

  1. Keegan Messing
  2. Roman Sadovsky
  3. Wesley Chiu

Women's Single (1 quota available)

  1. Madeline Schizas
  2. Véronik Mallet
  3. Gabrielle Daleman

Pairs (2 quotas available)

  1. Kirsten Moore-Towers / Michael Marinaro
  2. Evelyn Walsh / Trennt Michaud
  3. Deanna Stellato-Dudek / Maxime Deschamps

Ice Dance (3 quotas available)

  1. Piper Gilles / Paul Poirier
  2. Laurence Fournier-Beaudry / Nikolaj Sørensen
  3. Marjorie Lajoie / Zachary Lagha

 

The Olympic team will be announced tomorrow, but with one exception it's almost certainly already decided. Keegan Messing and Roman Sadovsky will likely get the men's spots, Madeline Schizas will likely get the women's spot, Kirsten Moore-Towers / Michael Marinaro will likely get one of the pairs spots and Piper Gilles / Paul Poirier, Laurence Fournier-Beaudry / Nikolaj Sørensen and Marjorie Lajoie / Zachary Lagha will likely get the ice dance spots.

 

The only remaining question is the second pairs spot. Vanessa James and Eric Radford withdrew before the long program and are petitioning for a spot.

This will fly under the radar, but Artur Dmitriev made a valiant attempt at quad axel at the U.S. Nationals.

 

Would have been so random had he succeeded and become the very first person to do it in competition. :d

It actually got called as a 4A<, so this is technically the first landed quad Axel landed in competition.

Big drama in the men's singles. 17 year old Ilia Malinin finished ahead of two selection favorites - Jason Brown and Vincent Zhou.

 

There is a chance however that he gets dismissed by the selection committee in favor of those two, what would of course cause a big controversy. Perhaps big enough for him to immediately switch nationalities to :UZB Uzbekistan (he is the son of one Tatiana Malinina)?
