Matthias Versluis (born 18 July 1994) is a Finnish figure skater. As a single skater, he is the 2014 Finnish national champion and competed in the free skate at two ISU Championships.

Career[edit]

Versluis competed at the 2012 and 2013 World Junior Championships, qualifying for the free skate at both events.[1] He won the senior men's title at the 2014 Finnish Championships.[2] He was selected to compete at the 2014 European Championships but withdrew due to a knee injury, sustained in training on 9 January 2014.[3]

On 1 April 2016, the Finnish Figure Skating Association reported that Versluis had teamed up with Juulia Turkkila to compete in ice dancing.[4] They competed at the 2016 CS Tallinn Trophy where they placed 13th, and the 2016 NRW Trophy, where they placed 6th.
