A 12-year-old boy of Vietnamese origin has skated into the history of the Canadian figure skating as the youngest ever winner of the Canadian Junior Men Figure Skating Championships held early this year.

The triumph, made in the male single’s event, is the latest that broad smile-wearing Nam Nguyen has scooped from the ice-rink in Canada , a nation strong in skating.

The boy earned his first championship title at the Juvenile Men Championship in at age of eight, just three years after taking up the sport.

Two years later, Nam shined on the rink again bagging two more championship titles in different age groups at the Canadian Figure Skating Championship, namely Pre-Novice and Novice.

The Canadian Press called Nam the skater of the future while his coach, Joanne McLeod, who has trained many figure skating champions in Canada , praised him for possessing a high degree of musical absorbability and performing skills.

The current Grade 7 Brentwood Park Elementary Public School student said “When going over there, my goal wasn’t to beat the older guys. It was to lay down a fantastic skate and to entertain.”

Nam Nguyen has showed he is committed to the sport in the long term as he writes on his own blog that “I am passionate about figure skating. I am very dedicated to my skating.”

Together with these championship titles, Nam Nguyen has also been hailed as a charming performer as he confidently took the rink with such well-known figure skaters in the world as Even Lysacek from the US and Patrick Chan from Canada at major events.

The boy unveiled that his immediate goal is to represent Canada at the Grand Prix Figure Skating Competition hosted by the World Figure Skating Association in September this year.

He also looks to finish in the top 5 of the Canadian Figure Skating Championships scheduled for January 2012 and represent Canada at the world skating championships and the Winter Olympics in 2014./.
