Rudi Swiegers

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.

Swiegers gained attention for his sportsmanship at the 2011 ISU Four Continents Championships when he lent his skate to American pairs’ skater Mark Ladwig after Ladwig’s boot broke during the short program.
