    Jeremy Ten has been injured for ages now. No ideas about any updates on him though.

    Alexis Miart of Zahorski / Miart has suffered a very serious ankle injury, will need surgery and I guess this means they might not be able to compete at all next season. :(

    Looks like Daisuke Murakami works with Frank Carroll now. His tweet "Happy Birthday to our coach Mr. Frank Carroll!!!"

    Carroll was listed as one of Murakami's coaches in his ISU bio as of last season: http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00007654.htm

    In addition to having Murakami and Denis Ten (KAZ) among his current non-USA students, Carroll also coaches Misha Ge (UZB): http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00013128.htm

    So, technically speaking, all 3 of these guys started working with Carroll during the 2010-11 season.

    I have an update on this issue. It seems it wouldn´t come to reality as Bouquet signed some bloody shows contract which enables him to skate next season.

    Thanks for the update.

    It's a real shame that Mysliveckova/Bouquet aren't to be. :(

    I hope she can find somebody else asap.

    Better to earn money then throwing them out of window with many problems to come (citizenships, releases, hard training etc.)

    Unofficial but I heard that Otar Japaridze has retired.

    I hope it's just a rumour because he's :psoty: and I really enjoyed his powerful skating.

    That would leave Elene G as the only Georgian skater competing at present.

    Update 2

    Retired

    Kristine Musademba

    Injured

    Alexis Miart of Zahorski/Miart seriously injured his ankle and had surgery. He is going to be off-ice for 3months.

    GP Selection Details published

    A 2011-2012 GP Announcement has been published:
    http://www.isu.org/vsite/vcontent/c...-3572-4771-layout160-129918-news-item,00.html

    Minimum score for GP entry confirmed as 2/3 of the highest score in each discipline at 2011 Worlds.

    The alternate lists are going to be built in the following order (reposting a post originally by Sedge):

    • Come back skaters will be placed in the top position of the alternate list.

    • Split couples who were previously in the top 12 of a World Championship would be next on the list taking the points of the previous partner. This places them in second top position on the alternate listing.

    • Skaters in proper order of top 24 season’s best would be next.

    • Skaters from the top 24 who have only one event will be listed in the next order and should be picked in that order (done by points).

    • All other Skaters in the top 75 season’s best would be listed next.

    • Selected International Competitions’ winners are placed on the bottom of the alternate listing.

    There was an article somewhere in an FSU thread where Tiffany Vise (partner of Don Baldwin) mentioned that Rena Inoue is pregnant and due in November.

    Actually it was Don Baldwin who spilled the beans in the GS article -- link to the GSD thread: Rena Inoue pregnant.

    FSWer, you'll just have to trust that the information posted in this thread is reliable and up-to-date. :)

    According to information I received earlier this summer, Kristine Musademba is starting college full-time in the fall and will not be competing in the coming season (she hasn't officially announced her retirement but very few skaters do these days).

    New Canadian dance team of Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier announced -- GSD thread with article link: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=79627

    I don't think so. She's probably more interested in focusing on her family now. :)

    I don't think Inoue/Baldwin ever officially announced their retirement from competition (via US Figure Skating anyway), but I think it's safe to assume they're done competing as eligibles.

    UPDATE: The news came out during the Liberty Summer Competition earlier this month that the new U.S. Senior pair team of Felicia Zhang and Nate Bartholomay are relocating from the University of Delaware to Ellenton, Florida to train with Jim Peterson, Lyndon Johnston et al.

    No, he is really retiring. :(
    He gave a farewell show at Oberstdorf just a few days ago.
