2012 Skate Canada International—the second of six events in the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating—gathers top skaters from around the globe to the 6,500-capacity WFCU Centre rink. This year, Canada has more skaters competing than any other nation, even the North Pole. Up against competitors from the USA, France, Japan, and Russia, Canadian Patrick Chan will demonstrate the on-ice finesse that won him the men’s world championships in 2011 and 2012. In the ice-dance pairs competition, Canadian duo Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir dazzle spectators with the choreographed twirls that made them the first North American ice dancers to take home Olympic gold in 2010. Six singles or pairs in each category—men’s, ladies’, pair, and ice dance—continue on to the finals in Sochi, Russia, in December.
