What a crazy time it is for skaters from the Toronto club! In the latest development, William Preudhomme becomes the 1st club member to skate for Canada at the senior level (William also skated for Canada at the Junior level).

Next week Saturday William flies to Shanghai with Team Canada, whose male skaters include Charles Hamelin, Francois Hamelin, Samuel Girard, Patrick Duffy and Sasha Fathoullin. The following weekend (Friday December 12th to Sunday 14th) William will skate in World Cup 3. After that meet the team flies to Seoul, Korea and skates World Cup 4 Friday December 19th to Sunday 21st.

William will skate two distances at each of the two meets, so will get the opportunity to test himself against the World’s best. What a ride that will be!

Those interested in following the meets can catch them at these sites:

While the meet will very likely be webcast, Shanghai is 13 hours difference and Seoul is 14 hours. Skating will happen through our night!

William remains one of the key inspirations of our Toronto skaters, including those who have just made the Ontario CWG Team. His journey and success makes the journey tangible for other Toronto skaters.

We will add team info as it becomes available.

Good luck William.
