Battle of the Blades Update: Valeri Bure Continues to Week Three

Posted By Compassion Canada On October 12, 2010 @ 12:47 am In Join the Cause | No Comments

cbc battle of the blades Hey all!

We wanted to give you an update on the progress of Valeri Bure and his partner, Katia Gordeeva, in Battle of the Blades, airing weekly on CBC Canada. As you may recall from Friday’s post [3], Val has named Compassion Canada as his charity of choice in this competition.

Last week, despite receiving top scores, Val and Katia found themselves in the bottom two in viewer votes (which could have resulted in their elimination!). The judges saved the pair and they came back to compete in Sunday’s episode. The result?

Katia and Val are considered the ones to beat, once again receiving the top score from the judges … and this time, surviving the viewers as well!

So what does all this mean? They’ll continue on to compete in week three of Battle of the Blades!

We’re very excited that this team is continuing on to the next round — keep watching and keep voting!
