    I can't find a spot for pre-season news about skaters from countries without threads of their own, so I've started this thread.

    Misha Ge just tweeted:

    Alexander Majorov has decided to use another choreographer this season (previously he's been choreographed by his mother), and is working with Catarina Lindgren who is the choreographer of the Helgesson sisters. His mother will still help him fine tune the programs as the season progresses.

    Local San Diego County article on Christopher Caluza (PHI), who is coached by Natalia Bobrina: http://eastcountymagazine.org/node/10394
    Excerpts:
    ETA: Caluza is scheduled to compete next in the Senior Men's event at the Glacier Falls Summer Classic in Anaheim, CA, in early August along with 2 other PHI men -- Michael Christian Martinez (who is 15 going on 16 and placed 15th at 2012 Junior Worlds) and Maverick Eguia (age 19).

    An article in the Daily Pennsylvanian (UPenn publication) about Ami Parekh, who took a break from competing between 2007 and 2012 Worlds to focus on college. She will compete next for India at the Senior B in Salt Lake City: http://www.thedp.com/article/2012/08/perseverance-and-pride-on-the-ice
    Parekh recently relocated to the Chicago area and will be working with Oleg Vasiliev.

    I had no idea Vasiliev wasn't in Russia. I thought he only came back to Chicago in the summers.

    Good article. Michael will be age eligible for Sochi, so I wonder what kind of criteria will be applied (season results or skate-off) if Christopher Caluza qualifies an Olympic spot either via 2013 Worlds or last-chance qualifier.
