New Canadian Pairs Team to Debut in Poland

Thursday, November 20, 2014

A newly formed pair team will represent Canada at the Warsaw Cup this week. Lubov Iliushechkina, 23, Moscow, Russia and Dylan Moscovitch, 30, Toronto, Ontario will make their international debut at the Torwar Ice Rink in Warsaw, Poland. The competition, which runs November 20-23, is part of the International Skating Union’s (ISU) Challenger Series.

After success with other partners, Iliushechkina & Moscovitch teamed up in the spring of 2014. She had competed for her native Russia, and received her clearance certificate from the ISU this fall, allowing her to skate for Canada alongside Moscovitch. The duo will represent the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club, where they train. They are coached by Lee Barkell, Bryce Davison and Tracy Wilson.

Iliushechkina & Moscovitch are the only Canadian entry at the Warsaw Cup. This will be their first international event, although the two did compete at Skate Canada Central Ontario’s Octoberfest earlier this fall in Barrie, Ont.
