    I'm pretty sure Mike will compete in singles. He's training, anyway. He's so good, he's just not tall enough for pairs!

    Michael Chau has been competing in singles all along. He is a wonderful skater with triples through Lutz (I don't know how his 3A is coming along). It's just that his region (South Atlantics) and section (Easterns) have a lot of strong men, so he missed making it to Nationals in singles once or twice.

    I'm not surprised about T/C either. It was inevitable. The big question is who will she partner with? She's too good to languish without a good partner. The dearth of tall male skaters is killing me. Artur Dimitrev should really encourage junior to skate pairs. He can land a quad so the jumps would be a non issue. Of course, he is in Russia, but still...

    It would be great if there was a really short partner for Chau, somewhere out there.

    Yep. He's pretty short for a pairs skater. It was inevitable that she'd outgrow him.

    Danny OShea is relocating to Ellenton Fl.to Skate pairs with Haven Denney. I hear that Danny will be skating singles as well. I wonder if UGL or South Atlantic?

    Martin Liebers is on icepartnersearch, so he probably has split with Nicole Gurny.

    That is a shame.

    But if I was Nicole Gurny, I would either skate for Singles for Poland where she would be guaranteed to make the National Team or skate for pairs for Poland where she would also be guaranteed to make the National Team.

    Cool idea! They should totally go for it (as long as their height matches).

    I just checked and she's not there? There is a Melyssa James listed for ice dance (is that Vanessa's sister? Bio says she has Canadian and British citizenship)
