A local figure skater is getting another chance of a lifetime, less than a year after participating in the 2010 Winter Olympics. Kennedy Lavertu, 12, is acting as a flower retriever at the 2011 Figure Skating Championships in Victoria.
The senior Canadian championships take place at the Save-On Memorial Centre in Victoria Jan. 21-23 and the event is televised.
Each flower retriever gets three events to work at and Lavertu’s first is on Friday night.
