Congratulations to the 2022 Toller Cranston Award Winners!
Artistry. Creativity. Passion. Those are three of the many characteristics that Toller Cranston held on and off the ice.
As an esteemed ice skater and passionate member of the community, Cranston urged those around him to celebrate life with the same amount of dedication. As the 1976 Olympic Bronze medallist, his legacy has continued through the creation of the Toller Cranston Memorial Fund, which provides financial support to young skaters who hold the same qualities as Cranston.
Justine Miclette, Quebec figure skater is incredibly grateful for the award saying, “Thank you so much for this recognition. Toller Cranston was a very important athlete for figure skating and the message he conveyed on ice was more than skating, it was art. I would like to thank the Canadian Olympic Foundation and Skate Canada for selecting me for this award.”
