Skate Canada International Was A Big Success

There were no slip-ups off the ice at Skate Canada International, the performance behind the scenes went just as planned. 

That word coming from Cynthia Benson, the co-chair of the local organizing committee during the finale of the event at Harbour Station that began on Thursday.

Benson tells CHSJ News there was a huge turnout and there has been general sense of excitement in the air over the past few days. And that sense of enthusiasm that wasn't lost on the athletes visiting the city who she says loved the crowds, and the standing ovations that they gave.

She says the event gave Saint Johners the rare opportunity to check out world-class skaters perform in the pre-Olympic season, adding, it's not every day people living in the city walk past Olympic athletes in the pedway.

Benson says they are hoping the event returns to the Port City.
