In an interview with the Courier Post Online, Isabeau said her mother’s passion for skating inspired her to appreciate the sport even more. “My mother always loved figure skating. She used to watch figure skating on TV and I was a little toddler. My mom had the idea that maybe she could take me to the skating rink, and that’s all. I started,” she said.

Her coach, Yulia, says, “We started working on the first basic skills when she was little. Then she fell in love with the whole process.
