Stamford figure skater performs Saturday

Siobhan Heekin-Canedy

Stamford’s own Siobhan Heekin-Canedy performs in Sochi Saturday in the team ice dancing short program competition with her partner DmitryDun. NBC’s television coverage of the event is scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m. eastern. The pair is scheduled to skate second in a field of 10.

Though Heekin-Canedy is American, she’ll be skating for Ukraine, her partner’s home. True to the usual practice of professional athletes going where they must to find the best coaching, the multi-national duo train in New Jersey.
