There were 18 impressive skaters that took to the ice at the Doug Mitchell Sports Centre for the

The 2018 National Canadian Skating Championships see’s each skater run through their chosen routine with only one thing in mind – grabbing a podium finish.

Brian held the lead after his solo skating performance after the opening round of 12 skaters in the the free skate programs scoring a 162.34, leading all other competitors.

That left only the skaters from Quebec and Ontario to have a shot at the Junior Men’s title in the Men’s category.

The final skaters Ontario’s Matthew Markell scored 126.88 for a combined score of 181.41 jumping ahead of BC’s Brian Le.

Ontario’s Bruce Waddell was next skating to a score of 156.48, but Brian was still second in the free dance.

The last two skaters saw Corey Circelli (Ontario) manage a score of 176.66 overtaking Delta’s Brian Le moving him to third.

The evening event had one skater remaining to hit the ice at UBC and Quebec’s Zoe Duval-Yergueau was the last skater to stand in the way of a medal finish for the Delta skater to stand on the podium.

He grabbed a score of 110.61 knocking Delta’s Brian Le out of the top three that saw him place an extremely restetable fifth place finishing with a score of 162.34.

Thursday see’s a light schedule with the Junior Women’s program scheduled in the early evening followed by a full day Friday.

It’s about selling tickets and we are told that all three of the final days they have a sell-out crowd with a capacity.

We “thank” the media staff at the event for their hospitality and friendly nature with all of our requests.

Brian’s Provincial records are the 2015 BC/YK Sectional Championships where he placed 2nd in the Novice division.

In 2014 he placed 2nd in the Pre-Novice (Men’s) at the BC/YK Sectional Championships.
