    Liam Firus

    Canadian figure skater Liam Firus was born on July 2, 1992, in North Vancouver, B.C., Canada.

    Congratulations to Liam Firus for landing his first quad in competition! His SP today at the Broadmoor Open included a 4T:

    Liam's elegance on the ice has been very enjoyable in previous seasons.

    And now he has started this season off with a bang. Woo-hoo!



    Liam is a member of the Skate Canada national team for 2015-16, as he has been in the past.

    I wonder if he'll get that spot at Skate Canada? I was thinking maybe they are waiting for updates on Kevin Reynolds?

    Good questions. If KR is healthy, I wouldn't want to be in Skate Canada's shoes making this tough call. Would be great to see both men in the GP series.



    ETA, video from the Broadmoor Open jump comp (caveat: not the Freezer):

    So Liam won both of the Broadmoor Open segments that he entered:

    - Senior Men SP Only (score 66.93)
    - Senior Men jump comp

    And he landed quads in both .

    Many congratulations to Liam!

    Thx, matmuh. Sorry to hear the news.
    Hope he will recover soon. Apparently Liam was able to go camping in the mountains this weekend, seemingly a good sign that the injury is not too bad??

    Good Luck to Liam! It's crazy that Canadians already have the warm up groups out. I guess we can't be that lucky with U.S. Nationals, can we?

    I believe the Canadian men have two spots for Worlds and three spots for 4CCs, correct? Hopefully Liam can get at least third and go to Taipei!

    Today was Liam's turn to be added to Skate Canada's "Meet the Senior Men" page:

    Correct. Liam has his work cut out for him, but not unthinkable (IMO) for him to make the podium at Nats .
