Paige Lawrence

Skating together since 2005, Paige Lawrence and Rudi Swiegers debuted at both the Olympic Winter Games and ISU World Championships in 2014. After finishing 14th at Sochi 2014 they moved up two spots in the standings at the world championships one month later.

They competed at the senior national championships for the first time in 2009, finishing fourth. They went on to also finish fourth at the 2009 World Junior Championships. For four straight years from 2011 to 2014, Lawrence and Swiegers won the bronze medal at the Canadian championships. They competed at the ISU Four Continents Championships the first three of those years, earning the bronze medal in 2011.

Lawrence has dreamed of being an Olympian since attending a seminar in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan at which two-time Olympian Anabelle Langlois was a guest skater and encouraged them to aim big. Lawrence realized then that all Olympians were once small children and for the first time, the Games became an attainable goal.
