What Happened to Mira Leung?

mira This is a question that came in from a reader and one that I asked myself during the Canadian Figure Skating Championships earlier this year. What happened to Mira Leung?

Canadian figure skating fans will remember that Mira was touted as the country’s next big talent when she rose to fame after she began landing triples at age eight. The youngster won two three Canadian silver medals, made three trips to Worlds and was the youngest member of the 2006 Olympic team in Turin.

But then, she disappeared. Well, almost. She skated at the 2008 2009 Canadian Championships, but only managed a 6th placing. In the 2009-10 season she withdrew from nationals after a short program finish of 15th.

Leading up to the 2009-2010 Canadians Mira parted ways with coach Joanne McLeod which seemed to be the inciting incident. I was never a big fan of Mira’s technical or artistic skating, but I was unimpressed with the way this Globe and Mail article articulates just how toxic the figure skating political landscape can be. Whatever the central reason for the coaching split shame on both Joanne McLeod and Ted Barton for airing their dirty laundry to a national newspaper. It would seem that BC Section giving up on Mira was the end for her.

There’s speculation online that Mira has retired from skating, though I couldn’t find any official announcements to confirm that. In fact, Mira has done a remarkable job of staying under the radar on and off the web. The only reference I could find about her since withdrawing from Canadians was that she participated in “The Heart’s Truth Red Dress” fashion show as a supporter of The Heart and Stroke Foundation. There are some photos of her here, and here looking sophisticated and grown up. Perhaps she’s just moved on.

    Just wanted to point out that Mira is a three-time Canadian silver medalist: 2006, 2007, 2008 and that she finished 6th at the 2009 National Championships.
