A figure skater from Windsor-Essex has crossed as many hoops as he has double axes as he trains for this week’s national championships.

Jake Ellis, 16, who has skated for the South Windsor Skating Club for nine years, is en route to Ottawa to compete in the junior men’s division of the Skate Canada National Championships.

His trainer, Lori Lafferty-Vilneff, told WindsorNewsToday.ca he was eager to resume competition, but the COVID-19 pandemic has put a damper on those plans.

“We’ve been at the nationals before but last year we weren’t there because Windsor-Essex was off so we didn’t have any ice,” said Lafferty-Vilneff. “The Skate Canada National Championships were canceled last year. The year before, we have been there. He was then a novice and he finished fifth as a novice. Now he is in junior competition this year.

The problems began when the Ontario government adopted a modified Stage Two reopening plan to curb the spread of the contagious variant of Omicron. Most of the public rinks were closed. Lafferty-Vilneff said “Olympic path” skaters, those most likely named to the Canadian Olympic team, had easy access to the ice in Toronto.

Jake was left looking for a local place to practice. Provincial restrictions, however, made it possible to grant elite amateur status to figure skaters. This is the same designation that was given to the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) to allow teams like the Windsor Spitfires to continue playing. Lafferty-Vilneff then jumped onto the computer and sent messages to the City of Windsor and the towns of LaSalle and Essex.

“What is happening is that the province and Skate Ontario are coordinating a letter that is sent to all high performance athletes and their coaches to allow them to continue training even though the facilities have been closed,” Lafferty-Vilneff said. “Essex was the first to apply so we’re training in Essex. “

After training was over, Jake and his trainer faced another obstacle. They were forced to find another way to get to the nation’s capital after their flight was canceled.

“He’s due to train on Tuesday, and we were going to fly in the morning and train in the afternoon in Ottawa, on the competition rink there. So now we’re driving, ”Lafferty-Vilneff said with a nervous laugh. “We’ve had a few roadblocks, but we’re going to get there.”

Jake will participate in his short program Wednesday afternoon at the Canadian Tire Center.

Other skaters with Windsor-Essex ties heading to the National Championships include Katharine Karon of the Riverside Skating Club, who compete in junior women. Abby Bouma, previously with Riverside and Skate LaSalle, will also compete in the Junior Women. Kieran Thrasher of South Windsor will skate with Quebecer Chloe Panetta in junior pairs.

Figure skater Cha Jun-hwan is tied for his second consecutive Winter Olympics after winning the final national team trials on Sunday.

Cha won the second leg of the two-stop Olympic Trials hands down from Beijing to Uijeongbu, some 20 kilometers north of Seoul in Gyeonggi Province. Cha finished with 283.31 points overall, with 185.00 points in Sunday’s free skate and 98.31 points in Saturday’s short program.

Cha also won the first leg of the Trials in December with 239.16 points. He had 522.47 points combined.

Lee Si-hyeong finished second overall to win the second and final ticket to Beijing. Lee scored 477.85 points combined after the two practice rounds.

Cha, 20, is only the third South Korean figure skater in singles to compete at the back-to-back Olympic Winter Games. At the PyeongChang Winter Olympics four years ago, Cha finished in 15th place, the best Olympic figure skating performance ever by a Korean.

Cha, a former child actor, isn’t considered a medal contender in Beijing, but he can realistically push for a top 10.

Cha placed 10th career best at the world championships last year with 245.99 points. His career high is 265.43 points, set at the 2020 Four Continents Figure Skating Championships in Seoul. (Yonhap)

Brittany Bowe and Jordan stolz did what they were supposed to do on Friday. Erin jackson does not have.

As Bowe and Stolz won their second races at the Olympic speed skating trials in the United States, Jackson’s trip to the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics may have escaped a bobble mid-race.

Jackson, the world’s No. 1 skater in the 500m, fired back with a misstep to finish with the third fastest time behind Bowe and Kimi Goetz Friday. Jackson had hoped to get another skate, but officials at the Pettit National Ice Center in Milwaukee ruled against her.

With Bowe and Goetz qualified for both places in the women’s quota in the 500, Jackson has to wait and see if a third place is awarded to the United States. Another country could cede a place resulting in a reallocation.

“I feel like I screwed up,” Jackson said on the US show with a contrite smile. “It’s definitely for me, but it would be great to get this new skate, especially not just to be ranked # 1 in the US, but ranked # 1 in the world. It would be a little strange not to go.

All three skaters finished in the same order Thursday night in the 1000m.

Bowe, 33, was the first of the women on the ice as none of the top three went one-on-one. She clocked 37.81 seconds.

OLYMPIC SPEED SKATING TRIALS: Broadcast schedule

Jackson, 29, was in the next pair and the unusual swing on the back stretch melted his speed.

“I could hear someone, I think it was Brittany, say, ‘Get back to skating,'” Jackson said of Bowe, who has been his teammate since they’ve been rollerblading in. Ocala, Florida. “I was just trying to get all I could and get to the finish line and keep my fingers crossed.”

His time was 38.24. But Goetz, 27, was next. She came in 37.85 to clinch her Olympic spot in the 500 and 1000. The United States has just five places in total for women at the Games with two races remaining – the 1500, in which Bowe and Goetz are in. again the best contenders, and the mass start.

The American men are only guaranteed to have one participant in the 500m in Beijing, and that will be Stolz, who clocked a time of 34.55 to break his second track record of the week. Jun-Ho Kim of South Korea had the previous high of 34.59 set two years ago.

Stolz, 17, is the US record holder at 34.11, set on December 10. It is also the junior world record. He also set a track record, beating a 16-year mark held by the Olympic gold medalist Shani davis, in the 1000 Thursday.

If enough American men double in the events for the American team to send a second participant in the 500, Austin Kleba, who had a time of 35.17, would get the go-ahead.

Skaters take advantage of rugged ice conditions on Seagull Lake in 2020

Tuscarora Lodge and canoe outfitters

Hunting is a tradition that many Minnesotans embrace. But a predatory instinct doesn’t necessarily mean stalking a deer or a black grouse. At this time of year, “hunting” can be about “wild ice,” smooth, glassy lake surfaces created by a combination of cold temperatures, light winds, and a lack of snow. It’s the ice of yesteryear, before Zambonis turned skating into an indoor sport. And, of course, a good wild ice cream is never a guarantee. It is this element of the unknown, of the unpredictable, of chance, which makes it a real “hunt” and an obsession for skaters every winter.

Searching for perfectly frozen water may seem odd to some, but skaters in Minnesota know the potential these conditions have for the state’s lakes and rivers. When the wild ice forms, the hunt is on for the best adrenaline rush that combines effortless, smooth skating with clear ice for spectacular beauty.

Hunting for wild ice is akin to seeing and observing the Northern Lights. Getting the conditions right for either of these activities takes patience, constant weather monitoring, and a love of spontaneity. You feel like you are completely at the mercy of nature and come back to a time when humans were not in control. Skating on wild ice is like winning a jackpot combining luck, timing and “hunting instinct”.

Seagull Lake, 2020

David Welch, a longtime skater living in the Grand Marais, explains, “Wild ice skating is an integral part of Minnesota culture. I’ve been doing this since I was a kid, I’m going to skate. I remember when I was a kid we would pull out a bed sheet in the wind and walk down the lake. “

What is it about the wild ice that both inspires fear and excites skaters? “You’re nervous, wondering what’s beneath you, and worry about safety at all times,” Welch explains. “It gives you an incredible rush of whether you’re going to be safe or not, and just the breathtaking beauty of being able to see under the ice to the bottom of the lake. “

Welch, like other veteran savage skaters, takes safety tools with every trip, including ice picks, a throwing rope, and his personal favorite, an ax.

“An ax is a great tool to have,” he says. “One good swipe will tell you how thick the ice cream is. When it’s really thin it’s a little harder to tell how deep it is because it’s so dark. But if you swing the ax and it just goes through, then you know it immediately. “

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources suggests a minimum of 4 inches of ice before walking on the surface. The key is to confirm the actual thickness of the ice before you go. Skating with partners is another essential safety measure.

Ice speed is a big factor in attractiveness, but skaters of all skill levels return for the beauty of exploring the lake environment under the ice as well. “There’s nothing quite like a blue sky day where you can see all the way down,” Welch explains. “I am fascinated as I watch the structure of the lake bottom change up and down. It’s like being on a roller coaster. You skate on that underwater bench, then it falls under you, and it’s like “Whoa!” Skating on the shores is really beautiful for me.

Andrew Anderson of Minneapolis has always been impressed by the air bubbles he sees in ice, as well as other curiosities. “I remember when I was little I would just lay down on the ice and watch the bubbles. They are super psychedelic. I once saw a frog frozen in ice. He was in a swimming position. I saw a beaver swimming under the ice. Transparency and beauty are my favorite part.

Seagull Lake, 2020

Anderson’s father, Jim Ouray, notes another phenomenon: “Sometimes you can see your shadow at the bottom of the lake, and it doesn’t even seem to be related to you. Your shadow is still connected to you, isn’t it? But in this case, he’s disconnected from you, underwater. Sometimes it looks like the bottom of the lake is rippling.

There is no better place to experience this natural beauty than the Gunflint Trail and its labyrinth of lakes under the boundary waters. Wild ice lovers found their wonderland here in 2020, and skaters have been furiously planning last-minute trips to the north to take advantage of the magnificent conditions. But Anderson and Ouray also found wild ice in 2020 on Island Lake just north of Duluth, on Duluth Harbor, and even on Hiawatha Lake in Minneapolis.

Sharing good ice alerts is a key feature of the wild ice community. Old-fashioned word of mouth still reigns in the wild ice circles, but today there are Facebook pages where people share the updated terms more publicly. For Ouray, the news came out quickly in 2020. “I called my friend Bruce and my other outdoor recreation buddies who live in Minneapolis and told them skating is awesome in the BWCA. We went to Seagull Lake. It was an incredible party. There were about 40 people or maybe more on the ice. It was an amazing opportunity to meet up with friends and go skating together. When everyone is wild ice skating, it’s like a big party.

A critical piece of the puzzle is being able to react quickly. The transience of smooth ice means there might not be a second chance. Welch sees the ever-changing ice as a unique challenge. “That’s what makes him so amazing,” he says. “When it’s good to skate, you take it, because it’s going to go away soon.” With life being so busy with everything – kids, work, and everything in between – it’s hard to let it all go, but you just have to. It doesn’t always work for going out, but when you do, you just smile.

Pat and Gordon Wainwright walked past Bishop’s Castle skatepark every day, chatting with the kids and enjoying the walk in the park.

After her husband passed away, Pat approached city council to set up a memorial bench so that she could continue to see the children and her husband could be remembered at her favorite place.

Gordon passed away in 2016, and Pat wanted to think of something to remember him in the skate park they would pass by and where they would chat with the kids and watch them do tricks.

Pat Wainwright at the memorial bench set up for her husband Gordon, with their dog, Katie

After getting permission from Bishop’s Castle City Council, Pat purchased a bench that would remind her of her husband in their favorite spot and also provide the kids who use the skate park with a place to sit.

“The kids had nowhere to sit and I wanted to put a memorial to my husband somewhere”, she explained. “I was walking around and thought a bench might do the trick.

“I asked the municipal council for permission, they approved and then I got pictures of possible benches to show the young people and they could then choose.”

The bench, made from recycled plastic, was set up at a small celebration with Pat, some of the kids who use the skate park and councilor Andy Stelman.

Pat added: “It couldn’t have been a better thing in the end. My husband loved the park and thought we were really lucky to have it in a small town like this.

“We loved talking to the kids and watching them play and everyone loves our dog, Katie. It couldn’t have been better.

“We found a company that makes recycled benches from plastic and it’s really handy and doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. What is it for, they can sit on it and even skate on it because it’s so hard.

“We included the dog on the plate because he liked it very much. The plaque reads: ‘To celebrate Gordon’s life, this bench is donated by his family and dog, Katie’.

“Everything is really charming. I asked the kids what they thought and they said they were overjoyed. They said when they’re skateboarding and it’s raining the ramps get wet and they have to sit in the water but now they can use The Bench.

“I just wanted it to be something that meant a lot to both of us.”

Councilor Stelman, who also helps run the town’s food bank, said it was a great idea.

“Pat ordered the bench and a plaque for it which has now been installed and we wanted to have a little grand opening for it”, did he declare.

“Gordon passed away about six years ago and she continued to walk and chat. They had a lot of fun walking around the park and talking to the kids there.”

Shake off the rust: Vegas hasn’t been on the ice since last Tuesday’s game against the Lightning. The team will have used the morning skating in Los Angeles to prepare for the game and will need to be sharpened as soon as the puck drops when the game begins.
