Olympic medallists Moore-Towers and Moscovitch go separate ways

Olympic medallists Moore-Towers and Moscovitch go separate ways

The pairs figure skating team of Kirsten Moore-Towers and Dylan Moscovitch have parted ways, according to a release from Skate Canada on Wednesday.

The Canadians won a silver medal at Sochi 2014 as part of the inaugural team figure skating event at the Olympic Winter Games. Moore-Towers and Moscovitch were then the top Canadian duo in the Olympic pairs event, finishing fifth. They went on to finish fourth at the World Championships for the second straight year. Both of this year’s Olympic and world championship results were on the strength of a tremendous free program that captured the hearts of figure skating fans.

“I’m so proud of what Dylan and I achieved in our five years together, and I do want to thank him for everything we accomplished. We are just at different points in our lives right now,” Moore-Towers, 21, said in the release. She feels the window is open for her to pursue one or two more Olympic cycles, which deemed a new partnership necessary.

Skate Canada quoted 29-year old Moscovitch reflecting on a successful year, saying “being a part of the silver-medal winning team in Sochi is the most memorable moment of my career to this point. And I’m glad that Kirsten and I accomplished that together. I wish her the best of luck going forward.” Moscovitch plans to skate in the 2014-15 season, though he has indicated that he is already preparing for a life after skating.
