View Full Version : Jane Summersett/Todd Gilles appreciation thread

04-29-2010, 04:26 AM
I thought this team deserves their own thread instead of being buried in the one on Samuelson/Bates' coaching change:

I just looked up Summersett and Gilles's profile on icenetwork. It says that they announced the end to their partnership April 2010. I'm so sad, I feel that they had so much unrealized potential....

:( totally bummed. I just loved them and was really excited to see them develop.

Yes, that makes me sad too. I loved them at Nationals this year.

I'm sorry to see that S&G have broken up. :( They were becoming one of my favorite teams and had (IMO) one of the best FD's of the year this past season.

I loved their OD.

Awwwwww, that sucks. :(

I really liked them. They had such interesting programs.

But, the judges didn't seem to care for them. :(
I believe Todd is retiring, but I don't know about Jane.

Thanks Sylvia. I really liked them at Nationals and am truly bummed that they've split. I met Jane's parents on the bus in Spokane and they were so nice and they were so proud. Their OD was fabulous.

I <3ed them, especially their 'Summertime' program. I'll miss them.

They're both amazing people!

I really liked them. I was hoping they'd give it 4 more years together.

I'll really miss them, they were like a breath of fresh air.

I agree completely, OlieRow. In a sea of sameness, their programs always had something original that made them stand out. I liked this team, and will miss them.

Oh, I didn't know that. I knew Jane when she trained in Marlboro with Elliot and she's such a sweet girl. I hope Jane finds another partner soon.

I loved their Country OD/Peruvian OD/20's OD. They were always very well choreographed! In regards to FD, I loved "La Strada" and this years was good too! They will be missed.

I enjoyed them a lot, especially at Skate America a couple of years ago in the 20s OD. I still find them more interesting to watch than S&B, though I understand S&B's technical command. (It just leaves me cold.)

Has she announced any future plans?

That's too bad about their split. I wish them well. Is Todd going to coach?

There is an article (http://www.ice-dance.com/component/content/article/68/812-summersett-a-gilles-end-their-partnership) on the new ice-dance.com about the split, with lots of quotes about their future.

I'm going to miss some of their crazy lifts. :(

I'm glad to hear that Todd is continuing with his video of the day. I hope they both find great success in their post skating lives. And maybe Todd will find another partner!

They are both really nice people but I was never really sure if they got along very well.
