    Skaters eager to begin nationals

    After a disappointing third place finish at the International Skating Union Grand Prix Final last month in Sochi, Russia— the host city for the 2014 Winter Olympics — Chan took the opportunity to learn from former world champions Kurt Browning, Elvis Stojko and Jeffrey Buttle as he toured four Ontario cities with them afterwards.

    Chan, 22, has learned a great deal from Browning in particular and is hoping to apply his newfound knowledge when he competes in the Canadian championships that begin Sunday at the Hershey Centre.

    Excerpt of tweet from @WeaverPoje today:
    Look 4 us on CTV Saturday!
    10:47 AM - 14 Jan 13
    https://twitter.com/WeaverPoje/statu...92965285593090

    Hmmm ... wonder whether Weaver/Poje will be interviewed or be the focus of a feature piece ... or even give commentary of sorts?

    (When Virtue/Moir could not compete in Skate Canada 2010, they joined PJ Kwong in the CBC booth to discuss the newfangled Short Dance.)
