Its been confirmed that Linda Wenzig sustained an injury during the National Training camp at the beginning of August. They are now hoping to compete in Gdansk & Innsbruck.
I am starting to think these trainings camps are cursed. Thats 3 skaters that I have heard of that got injured there this year.
German Team for the JGP in Romania is http://www.isuresults.com/events/fsevent00011283.htm
Angelika Dubinski - her debut on the JGP circuit
Koch / Nüchtern
Also at Ondrej Nepela Memorial we only have Dance and Pairs entries. Guess its easiest for the Oberstdorf based skaters to do Nebelhorn Trophy and Ondrej Nepela Memorial back to back, but I was really hoping to see some single skaters too
Dieck / Zenkner appear to have split. Dominique is newly listed on Ice Partner Search.
Since Dieck / Zenkner are out Haeuser / Lerche and maybe even Schiffner / Salatzki will be getting their spots on the JGP circuit. Dieck / Zenkner has been guaranteed two Spots
German Team for JGP # 5
Niko Ulanovski - Debut
Haeuser / Lerche

It is nice to see that Z/G finally get the respect they deserve from the DEU!
Martin Rappe scored 155.54 points at the JGP in Riga.
In order to meet the team envelope criteria for next season he needed at least 146 points in an ISU Junior competion. Check that one is done
Have the Hermanns released details of the music of their 2011/2012 programs yet? Just wondering what they will be skating to this year..
nice success for martin rappe at jgp in riga; but very disappointing for christina erdel; taking a look at the detailed scores, this is really shocking, what she 'achieved'. sorry.
I really hope they pull her out of Nebelhorn Trophy. Give her time to get ready for the season. don't destroy whatever self confidence she has by sending her into the lions den (Nebelhorn) knowing she will at the wrong end of the lists.
test skates, like in russia or the us, seem to be a good thing to chose the right skaters.
let´s hope the best for the other germans, especially isabel drescher, i really want her to deliver again.
what´s with sandy hoffman? she´s always listed as alternate skater. she was so promising years ago

Julia Pfrengle (16) had an injury last season and hasn't returned to competing yet. Though I would expect her to be back soon
Shira Willner (18) was ill last season and has only started back in full training. I hope she will be back in time for Nationals.
Nicole Schott (14) missed the 2nd JGP monitoring session due to an injury that kept her off the ice for 3 weeks in August. She seems to be back on the ice now and hopefully will be getting lots of Junior B's this season. If she hadn't been injured she would have gotten one of the JGPs as in the 1st monitoring she did really well
Jessica Füssinger (15) had knee surgery. She should be able to start training again now, but I guess it will be a while before she is ready to compete. I really hope she will be able to come back in time for some of the Junior B's. NRW Trophy seems to be a good one for her. she won the Bronze there twice so far.
Not sure about Weinzierl (17) and Urban (18). I know they attended the first monitoring session but I don't think they went to the second one. Guess they will be focusing on Seniors and doing Senior B's
What I am really looking forward too are the Novice Ladies from last season. Even though 4 of the best will have to compete Novice internationally and Junior nationally I am curious to see how they "survived" the summer break. I have about 10 10-12 year old on my watchlist
