Tina Garabedian and Simon Proulx-Sénécal
Armenian ice dancers Tina Garabedian and Simon Proulx-Sénécal won second place in the 2019 Santa Claus Cup, an international figure skating competition for Advanced, Intermediate, and Basic skaters held in Budapest, Hungary.
Sénécal is a Canadian ice dancer who competes with Garabedian for Armenia. A total of nine pairs participated in this year’s competition.
Garabedian and Sénécal received a total of 171.39 points as a result of two programs, and are now set to perform in the rhythm dance at the World Championship. The pair returned to the skating rink in November after a year-long break, to participate in the Warsaw Cup.
Last week, Armenian figure skater Anastasia Galustyan won the women’s individual event in the international competition.
