The Locker Room With Dylan Moscovitch

Friday, January 30, 2015

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.

Dylan and Lubov now look to prepare for their next challenge, representing Canada at the ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships in Seoul, Korea in February, and the ISU World Figure Skating Championships in Shanghai, China in March.
