Canadian Stars on Ice 2019 - on the road again

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

Funny how we adopt foreign skaters as our own as soon as they start training in Canada. I love this trend we have more skaters to cheer for. :D

More news today from: https://www.starsonice.ca/news.html?n_id=502
Stars on Ice is proud to announce the signing of two-time and reigning National Champion, Nam Nguyen to the cast for the 2019 Tour. This comes on the heels of Stars on Ice cast regular, Jeffrey Buttle, removing himself from the upcoming 2019 Stars on Ice tour due to injury. A fixture on the Tour since 2005, Buttle will remain with the Tour as show director and choreographer.

“It is with regret that I am missing this year’s tour,” stated Olympic Bronze Medalist, World Champion and three-time National Champion Jeffrey Buttle. “I sustained an injury last March that has gotten progressively worse and have decided to take the necessary steps to heal. I am so thankful for all of the support I have received throughout my career and will be back on the ice performing soon.”

While the crowd favorite Buttle will be missed, the addition of the ultra-talented Nguyen should excite Canadian fans of the annual tour. From 2007 to 2009, Nguyen won three national men's titles — Juvenile, Pre-Novice, and Novice — each time becoming the youngest skater to do so. At the 2011 Canadian Championships, he became the youngest skater to win the junior men's title, and by 2015 he had won his first Canadian Senior National Championship.

The first show took place in Halifax last evening.

Jeff Buttle, who did the choreography but is not skating due to an injury, posted this on Twitter:
First time in 15 years that I actually got to watch the Stars on Ice show in Halifax, and not skate in it. So weird, but so amazing!
Jeff and several cast members have posted links to this fun video on Twitter - it was shot during rehearsals in Halifax: https://youtu.be/_qZu2lPuBmM

The tour is now over for another year and we will have to wait (several months) to see what was recorded for the TV broadcast at the Hamilton show.

In the meantime, there are lots of photos to enjoy here: https://medium.com/@MaxJGao/2019-canadi ... 905c5fd508

They were taken at the Toronto and Hamilton shows by a young and talented photographer by the name of Max Gao (who is still a student). While there, Max also did interviews with Evgenia and Kurt - read them here: https://medium.com/@MaxJGao/exclusive-e ... 0f385316a4 and https://medium.com/@MaxJGao/exclusive-p ... 1ddfe697d8
