Manitobans to watch: Eric Radford

Born in Winnipeg, Eric Radford grew up in Northern Ontario before moving back to Manitoba briefly as a teenager. Eric began skating at eight years old and was successful as a singles skater in his youth. Once it became apparent he was better suited to pairs skating; he made the switch to pairs in 2005. Eric skated with two different partners before matching up with Meghan Duhamel in 2010, and the two have had a huge amount of success since.

Both skaters made their Olympic debuts in Sochi, where they were part of Canada’s silver-medal team in the inaugural team event. The two are 2016 Grand Prix champions, back-to-back World Champions (in 2015 and 2016), and six-time Canadian National Champions in the pairs event.

DID YOU KNOW?
Eric is an ambassador for the COC‘s #OneTeam program, which combats homophobia in sport.

While their names may not be quite as familiar as those of Canadian ice dancers Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, Radford and Duhamel have dominated international pairs skating since the last Winter Olympics. They have won medals at nearly every major competition in the last four years, and now look to prove their success on the Olympic podium in 2018.

The Canadian duo is the favourite at this week’s Four Continents Championship, which begins tomorrow at the Gangneung Ice Arena. They will act as figure skating’s test event for PyeongChang 2018.
