The Nova phenomenon
At the beginning of 2019, the synchro world spoke only about Nova, this young team from the Montreal area in Canada. Indeed, during the Mozart Cup in Austria, Nova Senior made a big hit by winning this famous competition. The team had even surpassed Finland's Marigold IceUnity, Crystal Ice (RUS), Team Unique (FIN) and even the American team Haydenettes.

And then, a few weeks later, a second surprise arrived for Nova, who became for the first time National Champion of Canada. The team of Marie-France Sirois performed perfectly in the Free Program and finished with gold.
MIU on TV!
Among the other great news of the beginning of the year: the remarkable program of 2018 World Champions Marigold IceUnity (MIU) on the show "Dancing on Ice" in Great Britain.
