Josée Chouinard

Congratulations Josée for placing second at the 1998 Canadian Pro Open.

The first time I saw Josée Chouinard was the 1990 Skate Canada International held in Lethbridge, Alberta. We, my family and I, were there to see her win for the first time. It was awesome to see Josée. From that time on I rooted for this skater. She was a complete package -- artistry, speed, charm, charisma, jumps, everything any skater would want. The only problem is that her nerves got the better of her when she was an amateur. Though as a professional she is really starting to be consistant and some people say that she has landed triple axels in practise and will hopefully one day land one in competition. :-)
