Paul Poirier ([pɑl pwa.ʁje]; born November 6, 1991) is a Canadian ice dancer. With Piper Gilles, he is a two-time Four Continents medallist (silver in 2014, bronze in 2019) and a seven-time Canadian national medallist. Gilles and Poirier competed for Canada at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

With earlier partner Vanessa Crone, he is the 2010 Grand Prix Final bronze medallist, 2011 Four Continents bronze medallist, 2008 World Junior silver medallist, and 2011 Canadian national champion. Crone and Poirier competed for Canada at the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Personal life

Paul Poirier was born November 6, 1991, in Ottawa, Ontario,[1] to Debra Mendes de Franca[2] and Marc Poirier.[3] In 2015, he graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Arts in linguistics.[4] He continues graduate studies in linguistics part-time.[5] He speaks English, French, Japanese, and Spanish.[6] His brother played in the Ontario Hockey League.[7]

Career

Early years

Poirier began learning to skate in 1996.[8] Early in his career, he competed in single skating, in addition to ice dancing and pair skating with Vanessa Crone.[9] The two began skating together in May 2001.[10]

As ice dancers, Crone/Poirier made their ISU Junior Grand Prix (JGP) debut in September 2005, placing seventh in Andorra. The following season, they took bronze at the 2006 JGP in Norway before winning the national junior title at the 2007 Canadian Championships. The duo placed ninth at the 2007 World Junior Championships.

2007–2008 season: World Junior silver

Crone/Poirier won gold at both of their JGP assignments and qualified to the JGP Final, where they finished fourth. Competing in the senior ranks, they placed fourth at the 2008 Canadian Championships. They capped off their season with silver at the 2008 World Junior Championships.[11]

2008–2009 season

Making their senior Grand Prix debut, Crone/Poirier won silver at the 2008 Skate Canada and placed fourth at the 2008 Trophée Éric Bompard.[12] After winning silver behind Tessa Virtue / Scott Moir at the 2009 Canadian Championships, they competed at the 2009 Four Continents Championships in Vancouver, placing fourth. They finished twelfth at the 2009 World Championships in Los Angeles, California.

2009–2010 season: Vancouver Olympics

Crone/Poirier received the bronze medal at the 2009 NHK Trophy and placed fourth at their other Grand Prix event, the 2009 Rostelecom Cup.

At the 2010 Canadian Championships, they repeated as national silver medallists and were nominated to represent Canada at the 2010 Winter Olympics.[13] They finished fourteenth at the Olympics and then seventh at the 2010 World Championships.

2010–2011 season: Grand Prix and Four Continents bronze, national title

Crone/Poirier began their season by capturing gold at 2010 Skate Canada International, ahead of Sinead Kerr and John Kerr who had a fall in the free dance. At the 2010 Skate America, Poirier fell in the free dance but their score was enough for the silver behind Meryl Davis / Charlie White, both of whom fell, and ahead of Maia Shibutani / Alex Shibutani with no falls. Their results qualified them for the 2010–11 Grand Prix Final where they won the bronze medal.

At the 2011 Canadian Championships, with Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir absent due to Virtue's injury, Crone/Poirier narrowly won the Canadian national title over Kaitlyn Weaver / Andrew Poje.[14] They won a bronze medal at the 2011 Four Continents Championships in Taipei, and finished tenth at the 2011 World Championships.

On June 2, 2011, Crone and Poirier announced the end of their ten-year partnership.[15] He said that he would search for a new partner to continue his competitive career and did not exclude looking internationally.[16]

2011–2012 season: Debut of Gilles/Poirier

Poirier contacted American ice dancer Piper Gilles to arrange a tryout.[17][18] On July 27, 2011, the two confirmed they had teamed up to represent Canada.[19] They were unable to compete internationally in their first season due to Gilles needing a release from U.S. Figure Skating.[19] They decided to train under Carol Lane at the Scarboro Figure Skating Club at the Ice Galaxy in Scarborough, Ontario.[19][20] Their free dance was choreographed by Christopher Dean in Colorado Springs, Colorado in early June.[7]

Gilles/Poirier won the bronze medal at the 2012 Canadian Championships. Due to their ineligibility for international competition that season, fourth-place finishers Kharis Ralph and Asher Hill were named to Canada's delegation to the 2012 World Championships.[21]

2012–2013 season

In September 2012, Gilles and Poirier won gold at the U.S. Classic. They received two Grand Prix assignments, 2012 Skate Canada International and 2012 Trophée Éric Bompard.[22] They finished fourth and sixth at the two events and then won the silver medal at the 2013 Canadian Championships. They were fifth at the 2013 Four Continents, winning a small bronze medal for the free dance, and eighteenth at the their first World Championships, held in London, Ontario.

2013–2014 season: Four Continents silver

In May 2013, Poirier sustained a serious ankle injury, delaying the duo's preparation for the upcoming season.[23] Their assigned events for the 2013-14 Grand Prix season were the NHK Trophy, where they finished fifth, and the Rostelecom Cup, where they placed sixth.[24] Gilles became a Canadian citizen in December 2013,[23] making Gilles and Poirier eligible to participate in the Olympics.

Hampered by Poirier's injury, the duo finished fourth at the 2014 Canadian Championships and were not selected for the Canadian Olympic team. Years later, Gilles would admit that the result "was definitely disappointing, but it really made us who we are right now. We didn't want that big upset to change our goals in the future, and I think that made us stronger, more comfortable with each other, because we really had to lean on each other. So I think it made all of us closer and better as athletes, and more well-rounded."[25]

In lieu of the Olympics, they were sent to the 2014 Four Continents Championship, where they won the silver medal, placing behind Gilles' former partner Zachary Donohue and his new partner Madison Hubbell. Poirier opined that "we're going to take this competition with us, because it taught us a lot about resilience and about being able to come back so quickly after nationals."[26]

2014–2015 season

Gilles/Poirier won silver at both of their Grand Prix events, the 2014 Skate Canada International and 2014 Trophée Éric Bompard.[27] These results qualified them for the 2014–15 Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final, where they placed fifth. At the 2015 Canadian Championships, they won the silver medal behind Kaitlyn Weaver / Andrew Poje. The two capped off their season with a sixth-place finish at the 2015 World Championships.

2015–2016 season

Gilles/Poirier opened their season with a win at the 2015 Ondrej Nepela Trophy. They finished as second alternates for the Grand Prix Final after taking bronze at the 2015 Skate America and silver at the 2015 Trophée Éric Bompard. After repeating as national silver medallists at the 2016 Canadian Championships.[28]

They finished fifth at the 2016 Four Continents Championships, a result they considered disappointing, and which prompted significant revisions to their short dance program, which had initially been developed as a mix of music by The Beatles and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The revisions made the dance primarily set to Beatles music. At the 2016 World Championships in Boston, Gilles/Poirier debuted the new program iteration, finishing fifth in the short and making the final flight in the free dance for the first time in their partnership. Poirier called this "something new for us and something that we’ve wanted and it’s one of the things we really hoped we’d be able to do this year."[29] They finished eighth in the free dance, dropping to eighth overall.

Elements of the short dance choreography debuted in Boston were subsequently adopted by the ISU as a new pattern dance called the March, credited to Poirier, Gilles, their coach Carol Lane, and choreographer Juris Razgulajevs.[30]

2016–2017 season

The 2016–17 season featured the return to competition of Tessa Virtue / Scott Moir, which affected the standings of the other Canadian ice dance teams.[25] Gilles/Poirier took bronze at the 2016 Skate Canada International, the 2016 Trophée de France, and the 2017 Canadian Championships. The two struggled with mistakes in their disco-themed short dance for much of the season, with a stumble at the French event and Gilles falling at the 2017 Four Continents Championships. Gilles described the results as "physically hard and definitely tough mentally."[31] They finished eighth at the 2017 World Championships in Helsinki.

2017–2018 season: Pyeongchang Olympics

Gilles/Poirier placed fourth at both of their Grand Prix assignments, the 2017 Skate America and 2017 Rostelecom Cup. Following this, the two opted to change their free dance program mid-season, discarding an initial film noir-themed routine for a James Bond program. Poirier explained that they felt the need for "a more accessible vehicle going into the Olympics and one that (fans) can more readily identify with."[32] Their scores dramatically improved with the new program, and they earned the silver medal at the 2018 Canadian championships, on the way to qualifying for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Gilles described this as "a breath of fresh air because we've worked our entire lives for that Olympic moment, qualifying for the games has always been my dream."[33] The duo placed eighth at their first Olympics, and ended the season with a sixth-place finish at the 2018 World Championships.

2018–2019 season: Four Continents bronze

For their free dance, Gilles/Poirier envisioned a tribute to the artist Vincent Van Gogh, and arranged for the British busker act Govardo to create a cover version of the Don McLean song "Vincent" that had the tempo changes necessary for an ice dance program.[34] "Vincent" would go on to be the team's most acclaimed program to date. Gilles would later reflect on the season and say: "We find that this program brings a different energy every time we compete it. That’s why so many people can connect with it. It can touch people in so many different emotional ways. Every time we perform it, we’re drawing a new feeling from it."[5]

Following Kaitlyn Weaver / Andrew Poje's decision not to skate the 2018–19 Grand Prix series, Gilles/Poirier became the top-ranked Canadian team competing there.[34] They won their first outing of the season, the Nebelhorn Trophy, having placed first in both segments. The band Govardo attended the event, meeting them for the first time.[35] At their first Grand Prix event, the 2018 Skate Canada International, Gilles fell during the rhythm dance, leaving them in sixth place. The two set a new personal best in the free dance, rebounding to capture the bronze medal.[36] They won a second bronze medal at the 2018 Internationaux de France, ending as second alternates for the Grand Prix Final.[37] Following this, it was announced that they had been added belatedly to the ice dance competition at the Golden Spin of Zagreb.[38] They won the event, which they described as a means of regaining "positive energy" after missing the Grand Prix Final.[5]

At the 2019 Canadian Championships, Gilles/Poirier placed second in the rhythm dance, behind Weaver/Poje due to lower scores on the Tango Romantica pattern.[39] They won the free dance, but finished second overall by 1.47 points.[40]

At the 2019 Four Continents Championships, Gilles/Poirier placed fourth in the rhythm dance, behind Hubbell/Donohue, Madison Chock / Evan Bates, and Weaver/Poje. They achieved their best results to date on the Tango Romantica pattern.[41] In the free dance, they placed second, passing Weaver/Poje in the free for the second event in a row, while Hubbell/Donohue had a major stationary lift error that dropped them to fourth in the free dance and fourth overall. Gilles/Poirier won the bronze medal overall, their first Four Continents podium since 2014.[42] They finished the season at the 2019 World Championships, where they placed seventh.[43]

2019–2020 season

In designing their rhythm dance for the Broadway musical theme, the team settled on Mack and Mabel, famously used decades earlier by Torvill and Dean, though they sought to avoid closely paralleling the music used in their verison.[44] For the free dance, they sought a Canadian artist, as the 2020 World Championships were scheduled to be held in Montreal. Ultimately, they settled on Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now", familiar to both of them for its use in the film Love Actually.[45]

Gilles/Poirier began the season at the 2019 Autumn Classic, winning by over eighteen points over silver medalists Lilah Fear / Lewis Gibson.[46]
