    i for sure hope and will pray for a result like this, but ita2 has improved much too, let´s wait.
    if they gain a 3rd spot, i will surely travel to euros 2014, just wearing a german flag and cheering my a...off :rofl:

    German Novice and Junior Nationals is currently underway. This is the last competition that counts towards Junior Worlds Qualifikation. The top 5 skaters in the pre-Nationals in ranking that competed at Senior Nationals were invited to compete in Juniors here.

    So far no surprises. Novice U13 Ladies and Mens Champions / Medallists are pretty much what had to be expected looking at the results this season.
    Junior Ladies free skate is currently under way.

    wow, lutricia bock 3f3t, but i just calm down. germany had some promising girls the last years, but they all vanished or sticked in thei development.

    btw:
    2A<+1Lo+3S

    what a combination should that be?
    sequence, or?

    Unless I calculated wrong the Junior Worlds Qualifying Standing for ladies are

    Nathalie Weinzierl - 253,62 .... is in the middle of her exams for leaving school and I really wonder if she would want to do Junior Worlds
    Annabelle Prölß - 253,06 .... is going to be at Junior Worlds in Pairs. Would the German Fed let her do both ?
    Minami Hanashiro - 251,75 .... is the highest ranked age eligible skater and should get the spot for the EOYF, unless she gets Junior Worlds
    Maria-K. Herceg - 241,97 .... is age eligible for EOYF
    Natalia Fartushina - 240,78
    Lutricia Bock - 240,11
    Nicole Schott - 233,16
    ...

    I hoped that Nathalie could have gone to senior worlds instead of juniors. Maybe next year!

    I think she should. But I guess if she's going to JW, Hecken will get SW.

    Well, the German Federation published guidelines earlier this season saying that who places in the top ten at Europeans automatically will be selected for Worlds. So if Nathalie wants to go to Worlds (which she said she wants when she was in Zagreb) they cannot deny her the spot. Nathalie said she feels comfortable to compete at Euros, Junior Worlds and Worlds and I think the final word is up to her coach.

    there were quite a few interviews after euros, where she mentioned how happy she is to compete at worlds. i think junior worlds is just one step towards worlds. she would have quite a long break after euros, so i think this competition is good for her and maybe good for german fed toom if she is able to get in top10, this would get a second spot back for next year and more startes for jgp.

    this would be great and if everything work as planned, she should secure the german olympic spot and a grand prix start for herself. this would be great motivation for next season

    I really love Weinzierl's powerful jumps. Basics are not bad either. She just needs to get the finishing touches. More interesting programs, some more expression and she'll be there. :)

    you're absolutely right. i love her for going for the harder jumps.

    hecken always experienced with lutz and flip but almost never landed one of them clean in any of her programs.
    weinzierl already has 2 great lutz in fs and lutz and flip in sp. but weinzierl definetly have to get solid and stong in her 2A, so many mistakes there this season, same with 3toe.

    so weinzierl and hecken are almost tied after sp of bavarian open.

    unbelievable isabel drescher: landed 3t3t, 3sal with probs and 2a but bad tes.
    all spins got level 1 or 2. it's the same since 3 or 4 years.

    we know her jump content didn't improve that much, but with solid 3t3t and 3sal, 2a she should be in reach after sp and she is miles behind. it's so obvious from the outside that all her levels are so low i cannot understand why. her coach has to see this!!!

    WEINZIERL :40beers:

    I was really impressed with her at Euros. Disastrous start to the LP and a great comeback to secure her Worlds spot.

    Very inspiring. ;) :p

    solid win of weinzierl, 10 points ahead of hecken.

    250points for world standings are good for her

    :cheer: Nathalie :cheer2:
    I wish Nathalie had switched coaches soon :( but at least this season she can show her talent and potential and reeks in the rewards.

    wonder when some of the otheres realize its time to change coaches. Hecken has been with hers since she was small child and doesn't seem to progress anymore.

    absolutely right with hecken.
    she hasn't progressed since 2010, she'd rather became more inconsistent. her 3t3t isn't there anymore for sure, flip and lutz never landed cleanly, there surely should be some change.

    same with liebers.
    same level since i knew him and this is long time ago. i can't see why all these guys stick with striegler.
    i really don't like her coaching, sorry .

    julia pfrengle? i cannot see this coming.
    she had a great season with 2010 with 10th place finish at junior worlds but similar to isabel drescher she hasn't progressed since this early success.
    don't know why she didn't compete at this years nationals, but i cannot see her making any team in near time

    She is / was injured and as far as I know its taking a lot longer to fully recover and her dad being a doctor is probably not letting her back onto the ice until she is 100% again

    Here is an interview with Stefano Caruso courtesy of FigureSkating-Online.com
    http://www.figureskating-online.com/stefano-caruso.html
    (May need to use Google Translate)
    The site also features interviews from some of the skaters at the recent Bavarian Open, including Penny Coomes/Nick Buckland (who talk about their European championships results and training with Evgeny) and Isabella Tobias/Deividas Stagniunas (who talk about citizenship and injuries) - worth checking out!

    Does anyone have word of what Savchenko/ Szolkowy might be working on for their new programs? I was wondering after reading the IN article on Denney/ Frazier which mentioned S/S and S were in Florida recently:

    I hope Aliona, Robin and Ingo have chosen more fitting and exciting music that yet still provides challenges while packing a better competitive and audience-pleasing punch.

    Looking back at a classic S/S performance ... Wow, S/S and S don't get enough credit, recognition and respect for their tremendous contributions to pairs figure skating:

    It's actually exactly 10 years now since Aljona Savchenko/Robin Szolkowy teamed up and train under Ingo Steuer. It is amazing what they have achieved, including four World titles and eight consecutive medals at Worlds. Plus they've created some outstanding programs. There is a video celebration of their career: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=622853117743225&set=vb.170719959698522&type=2&theater

    Can't wait to see them again and to find out what programs they created for the Olympic season. :)

    ^^ Thanks so much, Eislauffan. And thanks for the tribute thread you started in Trash Can. :)

    I can't express how much I have enjoyed watching Aliona, Robin and Ingo create magical and memorable moments. What a remarkable and legendary team!

    some news of hausch/wende published on their homepage.

    http://www.hausch-wende.de/

    they are sorry, that we haven't heard of them for a while. they mention the last season as the toughest of their skating career. the death of a beloved person and daniels problem with his spinal disc were tremendous problems of them in the 2012/2013 season.
    but out of this they want to emerge and are encouraged for the upcoming olympics season.

    they have left for detroit may 14th to work on their choreos with krylova/carmalengo.

    they are thanking their families, the german skating union and the german army for their support during this past season and can't wait to skate in front of the audience again.

    ---

    all the best to them. this could be a tough fight for the 2nd olympics spot (assuming vancleave gets his passport; if not, the fight is over before it has begun).
    i like to see the fights in the german teams for the olympic spots.

    only one secured seemes to be s/s and liebers. weinzierl and hecken will have a tough fight, and in ice dance we have z/g, kolbe/caruso and promising koch/nüchtern moving to seniors.
