A great day for Team Canada. Meagan and Eric’s performance was absolutely stunning, I couldn’t take my eyes away from the screen. Tessa and Scott, as always, were amazing. Every time I watch both couple perform I’m just in awe of what they can do and both confused and amazed as to how they do.

Katelyn Osmond did a fantastic job in the ladies single skate. Coming in third and earning 8 points for Canada, she’s definitely someone I’ll be watching more of.

The excitement continues tomorrow on Day 3 with the Mens Single Free Skate, Women’s Single Free Skate, and the Ice Dance Free Dance!
