After five years of collaboration and a 9th place finish at the Pyeongchang Olympic Games, the quebecois figure skaters Julianne Séguin and Charlie Bilodeau will take different paths. Bilodeau made the decision to end the partnership to pursue his goals with a new partner.

Several months of reflection lead him to tell Séguin the news last Saturday. “It is never easy to announce this type of news,” explained Bilodeau. “Even if it was me who made the decision, it’s hard. We have had some great moments together. Even so, I’m still ending this period of my life. I will always carry Julianne in my heart. What we achieved together, I never could have done without her– and vice versa. For me, it is time to move on to other things and aim for other goals.” The skater from Longeuil admitted she was not expecting such an announcement, especially at this time of year. The duo had already choreographed their programs in preparation for the Grand Prix, which they were signed up to take part in this fall. “I didn’t see it coming. We train together every day,” pointed out Séguin. “I know Charlie well and I saw that he was feeling down but after the Olympics, I thought that it was part of the normal post-Olympic crash. It is very intense. There is so much pressure. I wasn’t surprised that things weren’t going quite as well, but I was not expecting a split now, especially after we finished our choreography. We were looking at costumes. The year had gotten started already.”
Rest In Peace @tenis_den #denisten #starsonice
🎬 "Just six days before his untimely death, Denis Ten, who dreamed of becoming a filmmaker, had revealed his entry for the Screenlife Project competition held by famous Hollywood director Timur Bekmambetov. The athlete had pitched an idea for a film about the relationship between a hearing-impaired girl and a speech-impaired young man."
