    I saw Stefan Lindemann the day before yesterday. (In fact he was watching me skating which was pretty weird considering that it was always the other way around :lol: ).

    He did his coaching certification in the last couple of years and is now in Berlin.

    I also saw Rico Rex who is coaching there as well and is a great and patient coach. And very easy on the eyes. :swoon: ;)

    it´s not officially confirmed, or?

    but it wouldn´t surprise me either; the germans have just one spot für the europeans and worlds, and 4 ice dance teams almost at the same level.

    I think Daniel already finished a Bachelor Degree in Business Management or something similar and Carolina was / is doing a long distance degree in Psychologie.

    Thanks. If Daniel is in Business Management there's still EM Lyon where there are a few Programs in english. Anyway, I wish them the best of luck for their future!!!
    I'm about their age so I totally get the doubts they have now about "making choices that will affect the next 20 year"

    Beier / Beier have been removed from the B Team envelop. Guess that means their retirement is now official.

    I wonder what the future holds for them!

    now it´s officially confirmed. The Beiers have retired from competetive skating.
    They ended their career because of his knee problems.
    They want to oncentrate on their business future.

    Juliana & Alexander split over the summer. I have heard that Juliana has retired and Alexander has been training with Jacqueline Gaidecka in the meantime.

    Other changes I have heard

    Peterka / Kurashvili - split
    Gaidecka / Mueller - split, he retired

    so Salatzki / Seegert and the new team (haven't competed yet) Fuessinger / Streubel are the only Junior Teams right now

    Lesser / Hocker-Scholler and Wenzig / Landgraf are in a bit of a dilemma. The ladies are too young to do Junior internationally until next season but the men are too "old" to skate Novice, thanks to the new ISU rules. hope the german fed hasn't adjusted the junior rules to the ISU age limits!

    Preliminary Entries for the JGP in CZE .... most likely the results of the JGPs and possible test skates with injured skaters may change the assignments, specially since I think Isabel and Franz will skate Senior internationally after the JGPs are over

    Franz Streubel
    Isabel Drescher
    Haslinger / Finke

    ah, sandy hoffmann just got one assignment, too bad, i really like her skating.
    isabel, in my opinion, is the one to top Hecken, but let´s wait, how she can handle her nerves

    The German ladies don't have a lot of spots this year. as far as I know the results of the first JGP determine who really gets the second spot. Sandy is still in the running but doing Nebelhorn, JGP GER and JGP CZE in a row might be a bit much.

    And a more interesting one about their upcoming season:

    http://www.freiepresse.de/NACHRICHTEN/SPORT/SPORT_MIX/7471426.php

    synopsis:
    They want to try to start a bit different in the season in order to keep things interesting for them.
    they have two new programs which are - according to Robin - even more complicated than their programs before.

    They will disclose the programs and the music on the 20th in Berlin.

    The article also said that Popova has joined Steuer's group after an unsuccessful try with Ilja Glebov. So that team is no more.

    She's Claudia Leistner's daughter, right? And her father was a pairs champ multiple times, IIRC.

    Sandy has since withdrawn from Nebelhorn Trophy and the JGP in GER due to a back injury.

    Hope she recovers quickly!

    The most recent Nebelhorn Trophy press release states that Sandy Hoffmann has withdraws due to a foot injury and Katharina Häcker due to illness.

    Get better soon girls!

    I have the german fed will send a full team to Coupe de Nice! So far only Peter Liebers has published on his homepage that he plans to skate there
