Julianne Séguin, 20, Longueuil, Que., and Charlie Bilodeau, 23, Trois-Pistoles, Que., have withdrawn from the 2017 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships due to injury. They were scheduled to compete in the senior pair category.
“Julianne sustained a concussion for which she has been receiving care, and which has been improving.
She has been able to resume practices, but has not yet been cleared to return to full practices or competition. Her progress has been on track, and is expected to continue,” explained Dr. Tatiana Jevremovic, Skate Canada, Chief Medical Advisor.
Séguin sustained the concussion in late December. The team will still be in consideration for the 2017 ISU championships.
