    Sad but understandable.

    Yeah. Nice to be able to earn some money finally instead of being funded by the bank of mum and dad, which is the case for the vast majority of skaters. :/

    What is ice dancer Sebastian Kolasinski up to these days? Is he coaching somewhere? Skating in an ice show? No longer involved in skating?

    After they ended their amateur careers, both Sylwia Nowak and Sebastian Kolasinski stayed involved in skating.

    Sylwia Nowak worked at the MKL Lodz skating club as a ice dance coach and choreographer but she eventually got a job as a sales rep for some medical equipment company (coaches earn hardly anything in Poland :/).

    Just over a year ago, IIRC, she was asked by the Siudeks to choreograph for their skaters and she liked it so much and they worked together so well that she ended up getting higher by the Axel Torun skating club and is now working there as a coach and choreographer (she's currently coaching two dance teams and I imagine there will eventually be more ).

    Sebastian Kolasinski has been working very closely with the Euro 6 Warsaw skating club and has been choreographing programs for their skaters for a number of years now.

    He's an excellent choreographer, unfortunately he's had a lot of issues in his private life. His divorce with champion snowboarder Jagna Marczulajtis was very well publicised in Poland (she's a minor celebrity) and it really wasn't pretty. There were allegations of alcohol abuse and kidnapping their child after they've split up, on Kolasinski's part.

    Just like with Steuer, though, while you might not approve of him as a person, his work in skating has really been extraordinary.

    The skaters Kolasinski is choreographing for are pretty much all of a very low skating level, yet he manages to make interesting, original programs for them, that bring out the best in their skating.

    I really hope he can (or hopefully he already did) sort himself out because he has a lot to contribute to skating.

    A really good example of his work is the short program to Moulin Rouge soundtrack for then Junior National Champion Ilona Senderek:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eekV2MdpGvI

    It's one of my favourite programs ever.

    Loads of upper body movement and connecting steps, balanced element layout, attention-catching moves to the music highlights and it just all looks cool.

    She can't now. Skating on cruise ships steals away your eligibility.

    Really?

    How so? It's a show, not a non ISU event.

    Ola Kamieniecki has placed 2nd in the SP at Liberty and 4th in the FS, to finish 3rd overall.

    From the IceNetwork article:

    "Kamieniecki, who placed 27th at the 2011 Junior World Figure Skating Championships, had a clean program including a triple flip and triple toe-double toe combination."

    http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news

    Great to see her jumps getting more consistent.

    Maciek Cieplucha competed at the Wild Rose competition in Alberta this past weekend (August 5-7). Here a link to the protocols for the short program (2A, 3Lz-2T, 3F with problems but no fall ?). Unfortunately the protocols for the long program have not yet been loaded, but his long program score was 100.56.

    Here's his long program. Not his best skate ever, but not a disaster either - probably just some early season problems which will resolve themselves over the season.
