Virden skaters off to strong start at nationals

OTTAWA — Virden pairs figure skaters Paige Lawrence and Rudi Swiegers are in position to book their ticket to the Sochi Winter Olympics in Russia.

Lawrence and Swiegers sit in third place at the Canadian championships heading into tonight’s free skate after scoring 61.67 points in the senior short program on Friday night. Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford lead with 75.8 points, followed by Kirsten Moore-Towers and Dylan Moscovitch with 74.96.

Canada, which will name its Olympic figure skating team Sunday, has three Sochi Olympic berths in pairs, ice dance and men’s singles, and two berths in women’s singles.

In the battle for third, Lawrence and Swiegers hold a tight lead over Natasha Purich and Mervin Tran (60.04).

Three-time world champion Patrick Chan won the men’s short program, while Olympic ice dance champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won the short dance.
