A senior men's competitor on the move, Garrett took the time to talk about his career to date, perseverance, his goals, how dance has helped his skating and much more in this interview: Q: Last season, you finished 3rd at the Skate Canada Challenge qualifying competition and in the top 10 at your first Canadian Nationals as a Senior Men's competitor.
This year was a very tough Olympic year and you finished 12th at Nationals despite putting some great skating out there.
Despite having lost so much time on the ice, I have learned so much about how my body works and what my body needs to stay healthy.
Because of that, I’ve had a full year of no injuries, and that is a huge accomplishment.

Q: When you have a rough program or a rough day in training how do you pick yourself and remind yourself that tomorrow's a new day and keep that positive attitude going?My former coach Sylvie Wandzura has taught me nearly everything you need to know about positivity and that will stay with me for the rest of my life.Also, I won’t lie: Sushi is usually a one-step remedy to a bad day.
