They have definately improved over the years - its just they were starting from a much lower level than a lot of other teams so its easily overlooked with the advances of some. 6th place finish at Europeans one year ... if only a jumping god could help Stacey out.

I thought they were going to struggle to stay in Poland due to all funding being cut. This is very odd as to where funding has come from but I want to see them in 2014 if they can possibly manage it. I did wonder if they figured they could earn money in America through some coaching and shows on the side although I know they previously implied they weren't allowed to coach, but maybe if not funded that may have changed.

I want to see them improve! I hope this move can do something for them.

If they can't get anything past a double flip, improving the rest of their skating won't really help their results. But they obviously love skating, and I like seeing skaters who have a strong desire to improve and compete just for their own personal satisfaction rather than because they are aiming for a certain placement.

Very interesting!

I wonder where they managed to secure the funding from.

Training in the US must cost an absolute fortune, compared to Poland.

Speaking of the Siudeks...where in Poland are they currently based?

Since they started coaching, they've been based at the Axel Torun club where they now work with Sylwia Nowak.

They currently have one (Senior) Pair Team: Silja Dos Reis/Mark Magyar, representing Hungary.

Ahhh what a disaster. :(

At least they're trying to go for the 2axels.

I'll forever associate Coldplay with hip thrusting thanks to them.

Well that's at least something interesting unlike coldplay's music :shuffle:

They've opened the last two, maybe three season attempting the double axels early in the season. I think they even tried them at one of the senior Bs (finlandia or nebelhorn). But by the time the GP rolls around they're back to the flips.

ETA: The leader of the Novice girls landed a double axel!! That's rare in senior ladies these days let alone novice :lol:

:eek: What the hell? They didn't actually do any elements, but they got PCS so they must have skated something just without any elements whatsoever. Do they not have a an LP yet? Did they have to compete?

I thought that David could do SBS triples, but Stacey can't. That's what I heard anyway.

Count me amongst those who think they improved a huge amount with the Suideks. Although the last 18months or so have not been great, they are a vastly different team to the one I first saw in Lyon at 2006 Euros. Hope this new move can add something extra to their skating. I do find myself rooting for them too.

Apparently the programme wasn't complete so they literally didn't do any elements. I'm not sure exactly how you score PCS when you haven't done any elements. What is if for? Stroking between what would have been elements?

But even if that is the case, "they" are a team so David being able to do them does them no credit as they will always be restricted by what Stacey is able to execute.

David has a quite consistent 2axel and 3toe, I think.

But that's usually the case with pair teams - the male partner having a bigger jumping repertoire than the female one.
