    Maybe they thought that total strangers to skating would automatically assume that some sprite about five feet tall would be the obvious suspect in a brouhaha requiring police intervention...nah!

    The article said the rumor was denied, as if reporters had asked. Skate Canada only responded to a question, and may not have gone out of their way. Perhaps the question was meant to be a joke. Did anyone even seriously state any "pairs" skaters were involved? Keep in mind this article was written by DiManno.

    P.S. I know Chartrand has been credited for being the first Canadian lady to perform a triple lutz/triple toe. The article states she performed a triple lutz/triple salchow combination with a single loop between.

    She landed the 3Lz+3T in the short and 3Lz+1Lo(1/2Lo)+3S in the long.

    Police break up fight in Mississauga

    OK, thanks.

    Although I had my DVR set to record the competition, the cable company had Figure Skating listed as a 2 hour broadcast. I later learned from watching an earlier recorded session, it was actually a 3 hour broadcast. Hence my recording stopped abruptly, and I have nothing from the ladies final group Long program. I should have set the DVR to continue recording at least an additional hour beyond the cable company scheduled end time. At least I got to see it live, but wished I could have rewatched it :(

    I can't say I am surprised at their mistakes. Here is an example of the confusing cable company broadcast descriptions listed for these events...

    "HD, Live, Canadian Championships women's final and original-dance competition in London, Ont. (Ice Skating (Competition))"

    Although they have since corrected it, other listed broadcast sessions had the competition in Windsor, and yet another in Moncton.

    P.S. didn't know they were bringing back the Original dance this year.

    I set my DVR to record all figure skating regardless of what day or time it's on. That way, it generally picked up scheduling changes. Yes, I have to discard a lot of repeats, but it also has saved me from losing stuff I didn't know was going to be on.

    I have mine setup the same. However, if the cable company does not reflect the schedule change in their listing before the competition, the DVR will not know and stops recording regardless of whether the competition is still being broadcasted. When recording Live broadcasts, the DVR gives you the option of extending the recording time in case it is running late. I had mine set to start 15 minutes early, and end 30 minutes late. Apparently I should have extended the recording time to at least an hour since this cable company does not always reflect schedule changes in their program listings.

    Just imagine the scene when Chan loses to Takahashi at Worlds.
    I'm wondering what would've happened if Canada lost the gold medal in hockey in Vancouver.

    It's probably because she's higher profile as slipchuk puts it. It was rumoured so they're clearing her name and rightfully so.

    The weekend spectacle concluded on a bizarre note with reports there had been an incident involving skaters at their nearby hotel. A noise complaint to hotel management resulted in a warning to tone down celebrations following Saturday night’s competition. When that didn’t happen, police were summoned, though nobody was charged, according to Skate Canada spokesperson Barb McDonald.

    She flatly denied that tiny Moore-Towers was one of the culprits, as had been rumoured. McDonald said she could not confirm the names of the other skaters involved, nor whether the noisy celebrants had been kicked out of the hotel.
    "tiny Moore-Towers"

    I think Kirsten has far too much respect for the sport and is far too proud of her title at nationals to jeopardize it with a dumb scuffle. Also anyone who has ever met her can vouch for the fact that she would never do something like that, no matter who was insulted. It isn't fair to pass judgement on something that serious about someone you have never met, especially when it's insulting her entire career and her respect for it.
