(GLAAD called them on it - no results) Skate Canada started up its "Tough" Campaign 1 year before the 2010 Olympics.
(EGALE Canada called them on it - no results) CBC's Battle of the Blades, replaces male figure skaters with hockey players to "attract" new audiences to figure skating.
American Figure Skater Paul Wylie is an outspoken Evangelical Christian.
Christian Televangelist Pat Robertson used to own the company which is now Stars on Ice.
At the Russian Grand Prix event this morning, Chan fell but still came in first in the short, 4 points ahead of second-place Jeremy Abbott.
American figure skater, Rachell Flatt, is also an Evangelical Christian.
Stars on Ice refused to hire Johnny Weir because he was not "family friendly".
After last season, he split with his former partner Keauna Mc Laughlin (who will be one of the "pros" on ABC's Skating With the Stars).
Therefore, I believe he and his new partner will need to go through sectionals to earn a place at US Nationals.
Still, Chan was overmarked(first place) in the short despite being one of only two skaters that fell during their short program.
