Mitchell IslamAlexandra 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.
