    That's interesting!

    New Finnish ice dance couples are popping up here and there!

    I thought Katlitski was supposed to retire.

    I guess competing for Finland was a much better option than competing for Poland.

    So he's Polish (also based on the name)? What can you tell us about him?

    And not only in HSK, Helsinki, but also in Leppävirta! IIRC, Laima was representing some club in Kuopio. To all non-Finns: Leppävirta is a very small place in eastern Finland, but it has a good rink and f.ex. Huth´s pupils have been training there in many summers.

    Lepistö in now officially out of Nebelhorn.

    Kiira Korpi has now published her own line of the sport clothes. She said in an interwiwe that she wanted to design youthful and comfortable clothes, and it is important that the tops have long enough hems that they don´t crawl up when a person is moving. The main colours are black, red, golden and brown. I´ll try to find a link...

    I like her taste. Looks like I may have to buy something.

    He's Russian and used to skate in Kustarova's group.

    Was supposed to represent Poland with Justyna Plutowska but she lasted exactly one day in Moscow.

    He then joined Sylwia Nowak's group and was test-paired with Natalia Kaliszek. Michal Kaliszek being test-paired with Anastasia Vykhodtseva.

    And then I heard he retired and Kaliszeks are now skating together again.

    Never actually seen him skate.

    It seems to be a good move for Jussiville!
    Last season the season best of Laima and Jussi was 59,45.
    Now in Australia JGP the pair Sara and Jussi got 95,88 (early season!!!).

    Not just early season, but also only a few months together as a new team. It's a good start for them.

    They are surrounded by good ice dancers at their training site. I think that will help provide them with the incentive they need and the examples they need to improve quickly.

    Looks like Laura has withdrawn from Skate America and was replaced by Viktoria Helgesson

    Oh dear, it looks like something really is not all right, if she's withdrawing 5 weeks early.
    if it's gonna be last season allover again.

    ETA: There's a Finnish article here http://www.hs.fi/urheilu/muut/taitol.../1135269367553

    According to the press release from FFSA, the nerve tissue in Laura Lepistö´s leg has been irritated because the skate rubbed it. Last year´s achilles tendon problems have luckily been healed.
