Thank you! I am glad they don't give up fighting for more. I know that a lot of people think that their time is over, but I believe that they can at least beat one of the Canton teams.They have wonderful skating skills and an unique look on the ice.
Allez,Nathalie et Fabian!

I'm also glad to see that fighting spirit. For the longest time, I've thought it was really V/M and P/B who were the two real best teams out there. V/M have my heart, but I'd love to see P/B move past D/W this year.

When I watched D/W's FD on TV,I also thought that they could be overtaken by P/B. P/B's SD is gorgeous and their FD, although they had a mistake, is so groovy.

I think once V/M get their SD cleaned up and mileage on that FD, they're going to be in a league of their own. For my money though, I've long thought that P/B have far better skating skills than D/W, and, this year, they definitely by far have the best set of programs behind V/M. Actually, I love P/B's and V/M's SD's equally, and P/B's FD is, IMO, considerably better than D/W's, which I find to largely be a retread of S&D and POTO that's not very well constructed (3 lifts in a row?). The only thing I'm a little iffy on with P/B's FD is ending with "Start Me Up."

It's been my dream for so long to see V/M and P/B go 1 and 2, and I'm hoping that maybe this season... *knock on wood* *turn, spit, curse*

I am really curious to see how the judges will see them compared to the Russians and Canadians this week. That is a big first step to keep their current ranking in the world. At least, the controllers/tech specialists from GB, Italy and Hungary don't have a history of questionnable calls (or do they?)
I wish that their Cancan used more spectacular Cancan tricks...but as a lot of French dancers, they are not flexible enough to master those tricks (If only they did more ballet in their younger years... like Zhulin suggested)

Tiffany Zahorski and Alexis Miart have split up. :-( I got a message from Tiffany. She is looking for a new partner. Please spread the word so that potential partners get the information. Thank you!

Miart is not continuing? I really liked this pair and was hoping to see them in senior level one day... :(

The story goes that Miart suddenly stopped skating a couple of months ago without telling the coaches or Tiffany that he wasn't coming back.
He'd got engaged in the summer and it seems to be the old story of romance getting in the way of skating.
The last anyone has heard of him, is that he is working in a bar.. what a waste of talent....

Oh, wow I did not know that Alexis Miart was engaged! I wish he continued with the sport though, I really enjoyed his skating. I hope Tiffany is able to find a partner and compete again.

Olivier Schoenfelder told me in September that Alexis had stopped skating. The Federation apparently didn't want to announce the split officially (I think they usually never do that anyway). They also kept the team on the entry list for TEB for a while and when they were withdrawn, the official reason was injury (Miart). They probably still hoped to convince him to come back. Now I think Tiffany has given up that hope and therefore announced that she is in search of a partner. Best of luck to her!

Wow, I hope Miart won't regret his decision in the future. But if he doesn't have the passion to the sport anymore it's understandable that he doesn't want to continue. I think Tiffany will someone else, soon.
