Alexandra PaulAlexandra Paul and Mitchell Islam began their partnership in February 2009 and just over one year later claimed the silver medal at the 2010 World Junior Championships. In the fall of 2010 they made their ISU Grand Prix debut at Skate Canada where they finished fourth overall, thanks to a second place finish in the free dance that earned them a standing ovation. They went on to win the bronze medal at the 2011 Canadian championships.

Following a disappointing fifth place finish at the 2012 Canadian championships, Paul and Islam decided to move to the Detroit area to train with renowned coaches Angelika Krylova and Pasquale Camerlengo, who are also the coaches of Canadian teammates Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje.

Paul and Islam made their first appearance at a senior ISU Championship in 2012 when they finished sixth at the Four Continents. A bronze medal at the 2014 Canadian championships earned them a spot on their first Olympic team and they finished 18th in Sochi. One month later they cracked the top 10 at their first world championships.

PERSONAL

Getting Into Sport: Started skating at age five… Was introduced through a CanSkate after school program along with her two sisters… Grew up not far from the Mariposa School of Skating, an international training centre in Barrie… Outside Interests: Enjoys dance and skiing… Studying political science and philosophy at Oakland University… Odds and Ends: Had her Olympic dream sparked while watching the figure skating events from Nagano 1998 because she was old enough to understand what it meant to compete at the Games… Favourite Olympic memory is watching Jeff Buttle win bronze at Turin 2006… Buttle is her role model because she was able to see how hard he had to work every day to achieve his dreams…
