Siobhan Heekin-Canedy (born July 31, 1991) is an American-Ukrainian ice dancer who competes internationally for Ukraine. With Dmitri Dun, she is a three-time Ukrainian national champion and placed as high as 14th at the World Championships.

Personal life

Heekin-Canedy became a Ukrainian citizen two months before the 2014 Winter Olympics.[1]

Career

Due to the scarcity of males in U.S. figure skating, Heekin-Canedy's coach arranged a partnership with a Ukrainian.[1] Heekin-Canedy began competing for Ukraine with Dmitri Zyzak in 2007.[2][3] After their split, she competed with Alexander Shakalov from 2009 to 2011.[4] They were coached by Galit Chait and Natalia Dubova. Shakalov retired after the 2011 World Championships.[5]

In mid-2011, Heekin-Canedy teamed up with Dmitri Dun.[6] In their first season together, they won the Ukrainian national title and placed 15th at both the 2012 European Championships and 2012 World Championships.

In the 2012–13 season, Heekin-Canedy and Dun finished 12th at the 2013 European Championships and 14th at the 2013 World Championships. Their Worlds placement gave Ukraine a spot in the ice dancing event at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Her partner retired from competition in March 2014.[7]
