This month The Locker Room is pleased to welcome figure skater Dylan Moscovitch!

Dylan, along with his new partner Lubov Iliushechkina won silver in the pair’s event at the National Figure Skating Championships last week in Kingston, ON. The silver medal adds to the new pair’s growing collection of hardware, which includes a gold medal from their first international appearance together at the Warsaw Cup in November 2014.

Dylan, with former partner Kristen Moore-Towers, is also an Olympic silver medallist in the Figure Skating Team Event at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. They finished fifth in the pair’s event at the Games.
