Kurt Browning, Pj Kwong preview Grand Prix Final
Event features Canadian duo Meagan Duhamel & Eric Radford
Click on the video blog above as CBC Sports figure skating analysts Kurt Browning and Pj Kwong preview the Grand Prix Final, which will be held in Barcelona from Dec. 11-14.
The event features several Canadians, including pairs favourites Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford.
Pj, who has picked Duhamel and Radford to win the gold at the world championships in Shanghai, China in March, is particularly looking forward to the battle pitting Duhamel and Eric Radford against Russians Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov, the Olympic and world silver medallists.
Duhamel and Eric Radford are coming off their second Grand Prix victory of the season, winning the NHK Trophy event in Japan this past weekend.
In the ice dance competition, one third of the six-team field are Canadians. Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje, who, like Duhamel and Eric Radford, won their second Grand Prix event of the season by winning gold in Japan, lead the way.
Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier will also take part in the ice dance event. The Canadians won silver medals at both the Skate Canada and Trophée Éric Bompard competitions this season.
