Skate Canada announced on Monday that the 2021 National Skating Championships and Skate Canada Cup have been cancelled.
While Nathan Chen will be the headliner at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships that begin Thursday in Las Vegas, Mariah Bell could be the scene stealer.
After the cancellation of nationals, Paul Poirier and partner Piper Gilles said there is still a small chance they'll compete at the world championships in Stockholm in March — if the championships even happen, and under the right protocols. Otherwise, he and Gilles are content to start focusing on next year's Beijing Olympics.
Kirsten Moore-Towers and Michael Marinaro won the pairs event of the virtual Skate Canada Challenge.
