Liam Firus came to national prominence when he won the Canadian junior title in 2010. The next year he began competing as a senior at the national championships, finishing sixth in 2011 and 2012 before placing fifth in 2013. He had considered withdrawing from the 2013 nationals because of a groin injury, but battled through the pain to produce his career best result to that point. After returning home, he had to take several months away from the ice to fully recover and didn’t resume full training for the Olympic season until the beginning of September 2013. Firus also decided to leave Vancouver to train fulltime in Colorado Springs with Patrick Chan’s former coach Christy Krall.

Firus has twice competed at the ISU World Junior Championships, finishing 20th in 2011 and eighth in 2012. He made his ISU Grand Prix debut at Skate Canada International in October 2012.
