    Can I start by saying 16 JUNIOR LADIES!!!! AND 9 SENIOR LADIES!!!!

    This is a good start, you need a big field to increase the competitiveness...

    Indeed, we have seen some of these girls trying triples in their programs last year, will be great to see how they have improved since Nationals...

    Also great to see the Queensland pairs in there, I do love watching them....

    Anyone know why Veera and Callum didn't enter, haven't had a chance to see them compete all year....
    How is Callums injury coming along? Anyone from Canterbury with the inside scoop?



    OH and I just noticed, Lochran is down with his new Russian dance partner...!!!

    I have so much respect for those girls/boys who try the more difficult jumps/elements in local competition, I understand them not doing it internationally, BUT if they hope to improve they need to take the chance and try under competition conditions.

    Hope Callum is better soon, I didn't know he was injured!

    Lochran has a new partneer, is she Russian or is she an Aussie?

    I sighted Callum on crutches at Hollins....

    And from what I know it's a partner flown in from Russia to dance for Aus... Should be interesting.....

    I believe there is an Aus dance skater in Melbourne training with a Russian Male, does anyone know if they intend to compete?

    :sekret: They were supposed to already be back in the US training, but that has been delayed until Callum's foot is fully well ... He is just back on the Ice this week after around 5 weeks off with a foot injury.

    I thought he went back to Russia (unconfirmed though), He and his partner came to COIR for a week but that was early in the year ... . If he didn't maybe they skated at Dragon City?? Can't find results anywhere.

    Cool, great to see a few more couples. There are two more couples in Sydney who plan to test Junior before the end of the year so a possibility of 5 Junior couples for Nationals!! :eek:

    Are the Dodds who are doing novice, junior and senior pairs (and single events as well) all brothers? Or is it just a coincidence of same last name? Great for them if they are all siblings who love to skate!

    It's so rare for siblings to skate at the elite level.

    It's crazy that three are in senior, and that they do pairs as well. Where do they find the time? Or have they been genetically cloned and they're just not letting on.

    I have seen her skating with a different boy since the Russian went back.


    It seems also unfair for an Australian boy to get a Russian girl.. with so many Australian girls look for partners...

    Ooh Dodds boys, I know them very well so I can give you all the information there...

    Yes there are 4 of them, 3 of them do pairs as well and from looking at the test list from Queensland 2 of them just did a dance test hahaha.
    As already said 3 of them are currently at Uni, the youngest Ryan is still in Highschool.
    The most impressive thing about this family in my opinion is their involvement in the sport...
    All 4 boys teach skate school, one of them for free while the other three have their level 1 accreditation.. One of them has done a lot of trial judging and another has done a lot of tech assistant for low level comps...
    Their mother also judges although their aren't many events available to her as her sons are in most of them...hahaha:lol::lol:
    The eldest brother Matthew also does a lot of work for Queensland running seminars and camps for them...

    True example of a Family giving back to the sport....

    Dont forget that the Dodds and their coach all travel 1 and 1/2 hours to get to the rink everyday.

    Wow, that's an amazing story about the Dodd family. Now I feel obligated to root for them all. I'm going to try and find some YouTube videos of these chaps when I get a chance! :)

    Would be good to get some news on Junior and Senior events. Best of luck to all the skaters! Scores would be good if the results are not on line :)

    Not all of the skaters named in the International Pool document seem to be competing does that mean they are not eligible for JGP's?
