Wesley Chiu, was born 20 March 2005 in Vancouver, Canada, where he remains to train. Wesley is a young talent, working hard to be one of the future stars in Canadian men’s figure skating.He won 2021 JPG Courchevel 2, and thus qualified for the 2021-22 Junior Grand Prix Final. With that win, plus his gold medal in 2019 Canadian Novice Nationals as well as Silver medal at the 2020 Canadian Junior Nationals, he has for sure become one of the more interesting young Canadian skaters.

I was planning to download CBC TV's Road to the Olympic Games broadcasts of Nationals (they include Kurt Browning as the commentator) from the CBC.ca website, but I've been searching for over a week, and I can't find the archived livestreams anywhere. :scratch2: I had to beg :bow: an acquaintance to convert their PVRs into video files, and so far I've completed uploading the Men Short Program. (CBC Montreal DIDN'T air this segment :mad: , so I didn't even know there were any SPs that made it to the television broadcast until I received the vids!)


Kurt talks about Wesley during the warm-up section.

This news article makes it sound like he was on his way?? I am fearing a positive test
Yes either that or they needed him to stay home because he's 1st alternate. And that makes me nervous, too, because the other first alternates like Evelyn and Trennt left for Estonia as planned. So... I don't know what this means (a positive test for Wesley or someone else).:(

This discussion also wasn't available on the Dailymotion archived livestream. My original file is 720p, yet the site converted it to only 288p for some odd reason.

I've belatedly realized that no one has posted the reason for his withdrawal from 4CC on this thread.

Happy Birthday to Wesley! 🎂 He definitely caught my eye this season. Good luck to him at JWC!
@dorispulaski , I think the OP contains a typo, it says Wesley's birthday is the 30th. :]
