Kiira Korpi is keeping her SP Somewhere over the rainbow but will have a new FP.
I don´t know it it also is by David Wilson.
Kiira is in this photo with Shae-Lynn Bourne (and Shizuka Arakawa), tweeted by Adam Rippon today: http://twitpic.com/5bmifx

Good news about Laura although not thrilled with Miss Saigon as a much choice. It'll surely look gorgeous though. :)

Sylvia - thanks
I guess Korpi is getting her FS from Bourne then.

Ari-Pekka Nurmenkari is still skating? I don't remember seeing him at Worlds, although I may be wrong.

Ari-Pekka Nurmenkari is still skating? I don't remember seeing him at Worlds, although I may be wrong.

He placed third at Finnish nationals and was not selected for either the Europeans or Worlds teams. Valtter Virtanen skated at Euros and Bela Papp (the new national champion) at Worlds; neither advanced to the short program. Anyway, I'm glad Nurmenkari is still skating. His triple axel can be nice and high on the occasions when he manages to rotate and land it. Bela Papp is a promising skater who may do well with a little more experience, but Nurmenkari, who is reportedly even practicing quad toe loops now, still has much greater scoring potential.

Kiira Korpi and Laura Lepistö will travel soon together to Canada to practice in Toronto. I don't know how long, maybe a couple of weeks.

Both have tweet on twitter:

Yes. :) And sorry for the very late answer. :lol:

Beata Papp has already started her new season! She's skating in Detroit this weekend and scored 43.76 (jumps: 3t-2t, 1lz (:eek: indicates that she's trying a 3lz), 2a) in the SP according to Sylvia and her sources (thanks!). :) http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showpost.php?p=3242510&postcount=64
