Alexandra Paul Dead at 31: 2014 Olympic Figure Skater

Alexandra Paul, who represented Canada in figure skating at the 2014 Olympics, has sadly passed away at the age of 31.

Paul, who was part of the ice dance team with Mitchell Islam and achieved an 18th-place finish at the Sochi Games, was in a serious car crash earlier this week in Melancthon Township, which is a rural area in Ontario, according to the local police.

Paul was in a car with her baby boy, who was taken to a children’s hospital for treatment of injuries that, thankfully, are not life-threatening.

Skate Canada has described Paul as a genuine role model for young skaters, showing the importance of qualities like determination, persistence, and good sportsmanship.

Skate Canada shared, “Throughout her remarkable career, Alexandra and her partner Mitchell Islam achieved numerous international medals, secured three Canadian Championship medals, and took part in the 2014 Olympic Winter Games.” They added, “Her dedication to being the best was matched by her friendly and kind-hearted nature, which made her beloved among fellow athletes, coaches, and fans.”

Meryl Davis, the Olympic Ice Dancing champion from 2014, spoke about Alexandra, saying, “Alex had a special grace that went beyond the ice. She consistently radiated kindness and warmth.”
