The Canadian Tire National Skating Championships showcased a healthy mix of fresh faces and established veterans and the team picked for the World Championships in March will include gold medal contenders and those looking to make their mark as they begin the next Olympic Quadrennial. A couple of teenagers will lead the charge to Shanghai in the singles events. Nam Nguyen stepped up admirably in the absence of Patrick Chan. At 16 years of age, he did not put a foot wrong in capturing his first Canadian title. His free program in particular was sensational with a quad salchow and two triple axels (the most difficult triple) and will stack up well amongst the worlds best. Having the quad and triple axels are key to his success but it is the balance that we are seeing from Nam this season that is his real strength and shows that he is not a one trick pony. He has the big tricks and consistency which is a rare combination, his skating between the jumps is delivered with care and finesse and as he matures and is gaining confidence in his jumps his artistry is rapidly progressing alongside. That balance will serve him well through his development and as he takes on the worlds best. In the Ladies event where the opportunity for a national title often produces nerves and inconsistent performances, in Kingston, the chance of the title fuelled focused and determined efforts. The three eventual medalists, new Canadian champion Gabby Daleman, Alaine Chartrande and Veronik Mallet all delivered superb performances. Veronik did not go in as one of the favourites for the title but her engaging personality and solid triples had her in the mix, in second after the short and produced season best scores for her. Teenagers Gabby and Alaine fought hard in going after what they each so desperately wanted. They both had clear shots at the title and had to bring and deliver their best. Gabby won the short program and Alaine the long with the edge going to Gabby overall. I like the way I see the rivalry between these two shaping up. Being pushed at home often drives skaters to new heights which pays off internationally. One only has to remember Kurt and Elvis, or Duhamel-Radford and Moore-Towers - Moscovitch for evidence of the benefits and while this is not yet close to the scope of the Russian ladies it has the makings of a great rivalry in Canadian skating. The talent, youth and feistiness of Gabby and Alaine create the perfect storm for an ongoing duel and dare I ask, what happens when Kaetlyn Osmond comes back? Game on! The pairs event was filled with intrigue, variety, personal bests and record breaking scores. Megan Duhamel and Eric Radford landed a throw quad salchow on their way to setting a Canadian record with their total score. Under the heading of how things change, at the 1988 Winter Olympics a teammate of mine threw a bag of bagels (my favourite snack) on the ice at the end of our performance. In Kingston, Megan was handed a bunch of kale! Kale?! Maybe thats their secret. Whatever it is, they are on a phenomenal record setting pace this season with no signs of letting up. Their next stop is Seoul, South Korea where they will meet up with the tough Chinese pairs at Four Continents and then later in March they will have their chance at the world title. The new pairing of Lubov Ilyushechkina and Dylan Moscovitch won the hearts of the audiences in Kingston. Just nine months ago they both found themselves partnerless and unsure of the future. Watching them skate together in their first major competition is to see that out of crisis can come opportunity. The irony is not lost on Lubov that the only time she had been to Canada previously was five years ago at Skate Canada, in Kingston. She said I said that I wanted to stay here and I am back. Like by magic...who could predict...the joke of life! That they relish this new opportunity is palpable. It will be fun to see how far they can take it. At the World Championships last year Canada had three teams in the top ten in ice dance. Those same three teams finished on the podium in Kingston but were tested by a strong field. Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje who are on the same kind of trajectory as Duhamel-Radford, won their first Canadian title in convincing fashion. They are world class and like Duhamel-Radford appear to be unstoppable. Weaver-Poje are undefeated and have the highest scores this season. The closest team to them in the points race on the Grand Prix circuit is an American team, Madison Chock and Evan Bates, whom they will meet head-to-head at Four Continents in two weeks. This will be a much anticipated and key match up for them a month before the Worlds. Remembering a Legend The loss of the great Toller Cranston was shocking news. My good friend Shelley Macleod had just spent Christmas with Toller at his home in Mexico and I was heartened to learn that he was at the top of his game during their visit and that his staff told her on his passing that in the end he was doing what he loved, and was surrounded by good friends. Going forward we as a skating community can be inspired by his vision. He clearly saw the legacy he wanted to leave and took his career into his own hands. For him it was about making a memorable and maximum impact and in so doing, moving an audience, bringing crowds to their feet and leaving an indelible mark on the sport. Toller once said, I brought a hammer and a chisel and I tried to wear away inhibition. May we keep that dream alive. Brett Hull Red Wings Jersey. -- Former Penn State coach Joe Paterno was admitted to the hospital Friday for observation due to minor complications from cancer treatments, his family said. Antti Raanta Rangers Jersey. Felton was in court as the Manhattan district attorneys office outlined the agreement, which would resolve a gun case that arose amid the breakup of his marriage. Hes expected to admit June 30 to at least one charge, attempted criminal possession of a weapon -- he wont have to come to court to do so -- and get a $5,000 fine and 500 hours of community service. The Earthquakes (6-9-7) were coming off a 5-0 loss at home last Saturday to FC Dallas. Even with the draw, the Sounders (13-7-3) climbed back into a tie for both the Western Conference and overall top spot in MLS. Seattle, West co-leader Real Salt Lake and East leader Sporting Kansas City all have 42 points. Dominic Moore Canadiens - The Minnesota Twins made it official on Wednesday, announcing the signing of outfielder Torii Hunter to a one-year contract. Anton Stralman Lightning Jersey.Y. -- The "for sale" sign is up at the Buffalo Bills with the hiring of financial and legal advisers who may begin talking with prospective buyers within the next month.KANNAPOLIS, N.C. - Tony Stewart said Monday he never considered retiring from racing following the death of Kevin Ward Jr.The three-time NASCAR champion talked with reporters Monday at his first news conference since a grand jury decided last week not to charge him in Wards death. The 20-year-old driver was struck and killed by Stewarts car during a sprint car race in upstate New York on Aug. 9.This is what Ive done all my life. This is what Ive done for 36 years, and I wouldnt change anything about it, he said. I love what I do. I love driving race cars, but I think it might change right now as far as how much of it and what I do, but there was never a thought in my head about stopping. That would take the life out of me.Stewart took 29 questions over 36 minutes at Stewart-Haas Racing, but did not discuss what he remembers about the incident that killed Ward. He has been advised by legal counsel not to discuss it because he still could face a civil lawsuit from Wards family.He admitted hes not been properly engaged with the four-car race team he co-owns. He missed three races following Wards death as he secluded himself at his Indiana home, but has been back since the Aug. 31 race at Atlanta.The 43-year-old Stewart didnt earn a berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, but teammates Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch both made the 16-driver field. Busch was eliminated Sunday at Dover.Stewart, who barely watched the three races he missed, said he has not been the leader hed like to be for his team.Ive let my team down from that standpoint. Ive been a little bit of a cheerleader, but thats about all Ive been able to contribute here the last seven weeks, he said. Its been hard for me to function day-to-day. There hasnt been anything normal about my life the last seven weeks, so its been very hard to try to do anything to be productive to help those guys.Stewart has also been aabsent from the sprint car teams he owns via Tony Stewart Racing, and from the three race tracks he owns.dddddddddddd He has watched his drivers compete online and watched several nights of racing at Eldora Speedway on his computer, but has not been a part of any of his businesses.He was appreciative of the support hes received from sponsors, particularly Mobil 1, Bass Pro Shops and Rush Truck Centers, but acknowledged its been difficult on the companies. Stewart also missed the final 15 races of the 2013 season with a broken leg suffered in a sprint car crash last August.Its obviously a tough circumstance for anybody to be a part of it, for a corporation to be part of it as well, but theyve been very supportive through this whole process, he said. I cant speak to what the future will be for them. Theyve been supportive to this point and thats something Ive been very grateful for.Stewart has been receiving professional help to cope with Wards death. Asked Monday if he could go back and change anything about the last seven weeks, Stewart said he would not have gone to Canandaigua Motorsports Park for what turned into a tragic sprint car race.Id have stayed at Watkins Glen that night, he said. You know, I do this stuff and I go run those cars to have a good time and thats all I wanted to do that night. I wanted to go have fun. It wasnt a big paying race for sprint car standards. I just wanted to go run my sprint car for a night. I do it to have fun, and it didnt end up being fun that night.Stewart told The Associated Press last week that he had lost his desire to race sprint cars and he repeated that Monday.When I got hurt, it was as soon as I got healed, and as soon as things got settled in with the Cup car I was set that I was wanting to get in one, he said, but right now, I wouldnt even be able to give you a small idea of if and when Ill ever get back in a car.
