That's pretty common, IMO, for most pairs teams. Not everyone can be Craig Buntin and have the ability to actually stretch. Many pairs teams try to disguise the poorly matched spirals by using some kind of hand-held bent leg position for the man or by having the spirals in opposition rather than side by side.

I don't think poorly-matching spirals necessarily shows lack of serious effort on the part of any male pairs skater. Men just don't stretch as easily as women, in general, with a few exceptions.


Matching Spirals...what does that mean? Both Partners do one at the same time?

When both partners do the same spiral side by side, in, for example the camel position or the catch-foot position, and their leg lines are perfectly matched; the man's leg position is as high and stretched and matches the position of the female's.

As in Tai and Randy

I think it would be easier to name the pairs that do it wrong, I think there are less of them. I don't see many teams doing a bad job.

Jessica Dubé and Sébastien Wolfe have registered to compete in the Senior Pairs SP event (likely to take place on Thursday, July 14, 2011) at the Liberty Summer Competition in Aston, PA. (Liberty is where Dubé/Davison made their competition debut in July 2003.)

Thanks but how do you know that? I didn't find any entries yet?

They are registered for both the short and long at Pierrefonds, August 11-14. Hope someone is able to attend and give a report.

ETA: Of course reports from Liberty would be great, too! Thanks for the info, Sylvia.

They aren't officially out yet, but you can find them by looking under the coaches' names on this page:

I love that page! It's like a trip down memory lane. Besides the well-known high-profile coaches like Frank Carrol or Richard Callaghan, there's a host of former skaters who are now coaching (examples - Josh Babb, Jeremy Allen, Daniil Barantsev, Elena Betchke, Isabelle Brasseur, just to pick a few names from the A's and B's).

I've been checking the online registration page for Liberty and Dubé/Wolfe are listed under coach Annie Barabé's name. There's a compilation of preliminary Liberty entries/notable skaters in the Liberty thread I just started today in the Kiss and Cry forum: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?p=3196489#post3196489
ETA: Now I see they're registered for both SP and FS but w'ell have to see if they do one or both.

Also, if you believe their Facebook pages, they are engaged, which might explain why Hay is not seeking out another competitive partner - not to mention that they seem quite busy with coaching and working on the reality TV ice shows.

Why would Cody being engaged mean he can't get another skating partner?

The thing is..we don't really know the way they split.. we have no idea what was said between partners ... or when Jessica actually decided to give Wolfe a try , before or after the split .

We know that the official announcement was gracious . We can also figure out that if D/W are going to have a chance of success next year they have to be working now... no matter if it gives observers a chance to go "Aha !"

We can't know whether whoever wrote the article on Bryce introduced an abandoned aspect to make a good story. The worst thing that has happened to Bryce is his injury, which is nothing to do with Jess . It may be some time before he knows whether he'll be able to have a further career..and if the answer is no ,would it have helped anything if a second person had waited , taken perhaps another year off from competition only to find out it's a lost cause and perhaps that's the end of their athletic career as well ? :confused:

I think that publicly , Jess has been as considerate of Bryce as she could be, under the circumstances , without jeopardizing her own skating future. Over the course of their partnership , both partners made sacrifices. I don't think we're equipped to judge which was greater.( Or if either treated the other unfairly in their personal relationship. )

Yes, ITA. Well said.
