About Julia Vlassov and Drew Meekins

World Junior Champions in pairs as of 2006, Vlassov and Meekins, who skate for the Colonial Figure Skating Club of Boxborough Massachusetts, and previously skated with the Skating Club of Boston, entered senior competition with the fall 2006 Grand Prix series. Skating to the Warsaw Concerto, they placed second at the Nebelhorn trophy, did poorly at Cup of China, then improved with a fifth place win at the NHK Trophy in late November.

Julia Vlassov was born August 29, 1990 in St. Petersburg, Russia. Her father, Alexander Vlassov was an Olympic pairs figure skating champion himself, skating pairs with Irina Vorobieva (while coached by Tamara Moskvina), with whom he won both the silver and bronze medal for Russia in 1976 and 1990.

Soon after his Olympic wins, Vlassov and family immigrated to the U.S., where Julia grew up. Julia started skating at an early age, and won both intermediate and junior championships as a single skater before becoming a pairs skater.

Drew Meekins, born in Alaska in April 10, 1985 was actively competitive in sports as a child but did not start ice skating until age 12. Two years later, he dedicated himself to pairs skating. His family had moved from Juneau, Alaska to the Boston suburbs, where he met his partner, Julia. Drew is also a big movie fan and a lover of travel, and plans to study business management after his competitive figure skating days.

Vlassov and Meekins' coaches are Alexander Vlassov (Julia's father) and Laura Amelina. Their choreographers are Laura Amelina and Evgeniy Krasowski. In addition to the Warsaw Concerto, they are also skating to an original Dance of Leelo's Tune and Sarabande by Mrvia during the 2006-7 figure skating season.
