Thierry Ferland is a pair artistic figure skater with his partner Lori-Ann Matte. He has renewed to chronicle his challenges of the season.
The Warsaw Cup competition in Poland was their second international “Challenger” competition. Thierry and his partner were very happy for the opportunity to participate in this competition since they hadn’t competed outside Canada during the last season. The motivation and excitement were very much there, especially with nearly twenty couples participating in this event representing 15 countries!
They are proud of the way they ran their long program. “This is our best performance of the season for this program as well as the first time we crossed the 100-point mark internationally for this solo,” says Thierry. Thanks to this exploit, they finished in 6th place in the long program.
They also overcame a rather atypical competition schedule to compete in the short program on Thursday, then the long program on Saturday without any ice practice. It was a « cold-start » performance, we may say!
