This is the story of how a blonde Texan schoolgirl and a tall, dark and handsome Canadian crossed international borderlines to form a partnership which would take on the world.
Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje had a rough season with being sidelined by injury from December until Worlds. I have to do this rehab anyway, regardless of what competition we make it back for.

It shows the strength that we have together as a couple and as individuals, because Kaitlyn to get back after her injury was such an amazing thing. We’ve gone through a lot together as a team, but this one especially is one that we thought when we set out this season we didn’t have the greatest start and to have the injury happen we were are a pretty bummed for a little bit, but we’ve learned so much, mostly – take nothing for granted. it’s unfortunate, I’ll probably have to take a couple of weeks off, maybe some (time) before Nationals. I was busy all through the day when I was doing after I had got my stitches out and do rehab. I think that with that determination and that ability to have the time to devote to it was very, very valuable. The doctors were like, there is now way, we can’t believe it. It was very, very strange to skate with one leg normal and one leg weak, very weak.
