    At an interview during the show in St. Petersburg on May 22, Stéphane Lambiel mentioned that he choreographed Nelli Zhiganshina/Alexander Gazsi's short dance. :) This should be very interesting! I don't think Stéphane has choreographed for ice dancers before.

    I think that Siudeks were involved with that ISU Pairs seminar again.

    So Z&G will definitely be back this coming season!! Stephane, as a skater, had a wonderful way with Spanish themed pieces (Carne Cruda :swoon: ). I am so lookng forward to seeing their Paso SD!

    That also sounds like Z/G are changing directions in their program style again ( I mean away from the comedy programs). I´m excited, and I think it is a good thing, that they´ll try something different next season :watch:

    that was exactly my thought and i hope we are true with this speculation.


    by the way: tanja szewczenko reached the final in the german version of 'dancing with the stars' and will compete there on friday vs. the winner of the first german idol season.

    ^^ And about time! I applaud Ingo for staying so loyal as long as he has, through thick and thin. Mostly thin, in terms of Germany's (ministry of sport/ internal affairs) attitude toward him.

    as said too many times before, this would be absolutely sad and tragic for german figure skating.
    steuer did great work (to admit, he was really lucky to have such talents on his side, with fitze/rex this didn't quite work) and his loss would be such a shame; we have such talented pairs and great single skaters coming up too, they should have the possibility to work with him here.

    This is sad. Especially with the effort of joining the German army. They were great together, but sadly undermarked.

    A little side note though: The report is from "sid". This is Sportinformationsdienst, the German sports news agency. "Handelsblatt" just buys their service. The newspaper does not do own research here. There are only 2 German news agencies that cover figure skating extensively, sid and dpa, and a lot of papers use their texts. Not that I have anything against Handelsblatt, but if you want to give credit to who reported this first, it was apparently the agency sid.

    Hi sus2850, yep I know but I´m still doing the same faults. Of course is shouldn´t be "according to" .....Handelsblatt was just the source where I read it. Usually I refer to dpa, as I´m german too. Old habits die hard :rolleyes:

    But it´s still sad times with Ingo very likely leaving, and now this :wuzrobbed

    i really don't know what to say to kolbe/caruso?
    kinda dramatic team; they did part ways before and get back together and now again a split? come on; he even got german citizenship just last year for the olympics, this is getting really ridicolous, sorry.
    i don't wnant to be harsh, but as a sportsmen there should be some other attitude and a will to find a way to make this work. they had great coaches by their side, in italy and in germany and there should have been a way to make this work as a former europeans number 8th.
    (i for sure just speak of the less infos we have, who knows what really is going on)
    the last season really didn't help them in any means with the bad short dance and therfore always the early starting positions in the free dance;
    it's a shame, as the team was quite nice and pleasant to watch.

    once again funny, that the german fed will beg and pray zhiganshina/gaszi to stick around as long as possible, the team the fed dumped so badly few years ago, as koch/nüchtern have a long way to go.

    Stefano Caruso should be looking for a new partner, he did last time they split. But I don't know if he would skate for Germany or for Italy.

    Maybe he should try to team with Lorenza Alessandrini, unless she has already found a new partner...

    I think Alessandrini is already taken, but I better let our Italian FSUers report on that.

    As she has made an official announcement on Facebook when her partnership with Simone ended, she's probably going to write on Facebook any update on her career.

    Anyone heard any updates about Ingo's situation? He said they had until the end of last month, and well, it's July...

    thanks, i thought lerche was skating with haeuser, but maybe that's past now.
    if you take a look at his fb page, it seemed as if he moved to oberstdorf, where urban was training until now.

    let's see, how this will work out. quite a lat start for urban with dance.

    Hang on a sec? Did Haeuser / Lerche not split last season because he didnt want to compete anymore?
    http://tsc-eissport.jimdo.com/sportler-news/

    sounds like someone may have had a change or heart ;)

    Jessica Fuessinger is looking for partner too, she is on Ice Partner Search, anyone know if she has found one?

    And it looks like Katharina Mueller & Tim Dieck have teamed up. At least according to their coaches homepage.
