This week, the ISU Challenger Series continued at the 2016 Finlandia Trophy. Patrick Chan and Nathan Chen showed up with new programs, new coaching situations and new quad jumps for an interesting battle between an athlete and an artist. Kaetlyn Osmond, Mao Asada, Anna Pogorilaya and Courtney Hicks highlighted a competitive ladies event. It was the ice dance event which raised most of the eyebrows, as the judges were split between the Russians and the Americans. Meanwhile in France, Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron earned championship scores for their new material. With shifting politics, multiple quadruples and uneven results, it was only fitting for TSL viewer favorite Laura 'La' Scheu to make a return for the latest edition of 'This and That.'

This week, many of the world's top skaters debuted their new competitive programs at the 2016 Autumn Classic and the 2016 Japan Open. It was only fitting that Emily Tuttle, a choreographer, writer and former contestant of the Young Artists Showcase join me to discuss and debate the new offerings in the latest edition of 'This and That.'
Camille Ruest and Drew Wolfe teamed up less than a year ago. This weekend, the young Canadians will compete at their first international event together at the 2016 Autumn Classic International. I had the opportunity to meet this delightful couple during my visit to Saint Leonard on September 6, 2016.
