A momentous year for a pair of ice dancers comes full circle.

Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje have been awarded the 2014 Kitchener-Waterloo and area athlete of the year award.

The pair were on a tear this past year, winning gold at six straight competitions. They placed third at the recent world championships and finished seventh at the Sochi Olympics. It’s the second time they have received this award, having also won it in 2010.
