The Inside Edge is where I take you behind-the-scenes of this week’s @SkatingPj Podcast. This was fun. I have known Bryce Davison for over 10 years and to be able to catch with him on a podcast was something I had been trying to do for almost three of those years. There had never been enough time until I was able to grab him between events at the World Figure Skating Championships in Boston.
Bryce is a former skater and as his Twitter handle will indicate – an “almost 3 X Olympian” – @almst3xolympian. His career was sidelined by a catastrophic leg injury that has lead to a cadaver knee replacement – the best option for a younger person. Pretty interesting stuff.
In this podcast, we talk about everything from Bryce’s career as a skater, moving on to work as a coach and his involvement in developing and attracting younger skaters to the pair discipline. Bryce can now be found at the Hamilton Skating Club where he is the Director of Skater development.
The Outside Edge is where I highlight videos from across the skating world and bring you a little bonus from somewhere on YouTube or beyond. In this case, I wanted to share one of my all-time favourite pair programs. Jessica Dube and Bryce Davison’s 2008 free program was to Damien Rice’s “Blower’s Daughter” – it was also the year that they won a World bronze. Mesmerizing.
