    Dont know if either of them would work out, their nerves get the better of them, I would imagine that pairs skating would be more stressful and high risk.

    Cross-posting with the Polish Skating Thread:

    I can confirm that Aneta Michalek and Mateusz Chruscinski have been practising together for 3 weeks.

    I will write something more about the Diamond Spin competition later (it was a test skate for the Polish National Team), want to finish my report for the Polish forum first (and I doubt many FSUers care about obscure Polish competitions anyhow ;D).

    I've heard that Joanna Sulej and Martin Liebers (of Germany) tried out, but I don't know what the outcome was.

    It didn't work out.

    news about it in the Polish skating thread.

    The new pair of Cyrielle PIQUIOT-GARCIA / Christopher TREFIL (HUN), coached by Lloyd Eisler in Los Angeles, were originally listed on the Senior Pairs roster for the Nesquik Cup in Torun, Poland (did not show) and provisionally for 2011 Europeans. However, Piquiot (FRA) listed herself on icepartnersearch in early January and Trefil may have retired (still unconfirmed).

    Moved these recent dance splits over to this thread:

    That's too bad ... they showed such promise last season.

    I think they did qualify. They were 7th at Challenge, which was well above the qualification threshhold for Canadians.

    I did wonder why they weren't skating at Canadians. Thanks for the information.

    Junior dancers

    The skaters of French National say Géraldine Bott did final competition this weekend she stop skating because she not wish to continue.
    Neil Brown continue in Seniors he look for another partner.
    I like this couple, is bad news.

    That is a shame. They seemed very promising.

    Sorry for the shameless plug but Polish skating is in an abysmal state at the moment and we have hardly any skaters at the Senior level so a friendly reminder:

    The gorgeous Joanna Sulej is still looking for a Pairs partner. She's been getting rave reviews from some FSUers calling her a "perfect pair partner" and praising her elegance and beautiful lines.

    Ok, I feel like a used cars salesmen now but she really is a lovely skater. And she's willing to relocate. And representing Poland means it's easy to make the National Team and if you're on it and represent a good level, you're guaranteed funding.

    I am not Polish so my word may take more weight She really is. I cannot understand why the male skaters don't stand in line for her?

    I remember that Anton Truve of Sweden is still looking for a partner? But he might be too tall for her. He is really really tall and Joana is so slight and tiny.

    Heh I was actually quoting you there.

    Thanks a lot. See, it's not just me.

    I guess Joanna was very unlucky because her and Mateusz split in October, after the season was already in full swing.

    That's definitely not a good time to be looking for partners. The end of the season is where it's at.

    Hopefully now, with all the major Nationals being over, she might get some luck.

    She's 160cm (5'3") and 48kg (107lbs). So not as super tiny as some female pair skaters but rather pocket-sized, yes.

    Having already achieved what she did with her previous partner (she's also skated Junior Pairs previously), she would like somebody who has previous Pairs experience, which unfortunately limits the number of available candidates.

    Why were Joana Suliej - Mateusz Chrushinski training in Montreal when the Siudeks are available in Poland? I'm surprised the Polish Fed paid for that. I can't think of a coach in Montreal who is better for pairs than the Siudeks.

    Sulej/Chruscinski lived and trained in Canada in Richard Gauthier's team. As much as I adore the Siudeks, you can't deny that Gauthier is a much more experienced and successful coach. Dorota and Mariusz are just beginning their coaching career.

    Still, they are great people and obviously costs of training at home would be far far lower. Siudeks seem to be much more appreciated abroad than in their home country.

    The Siudeks themselves trained for a long time in Montreal with Gauthier, and they are close friends with him.

    Perhaps they supported the decision to have Sulej-Chruscinski go to Montreal for a period of time, assuming the $ were available.

    Indeed.

    They have a very close relationship to Richard (they even named their son after him ) and I think they helped to arrange that.

    If she was anyone else, you'd be ranting about how she is too tall and not good enough. In all seriousness, she is a pleasant skater and I hope she has luck in finding a partner. Her ISU bio lists her as closer to 5'4" than 5'3", and that's pretty tall for pairs, so it will of course limit possible candidates. Does she do a SBS triple? I know she did a nice 2A and 2Lz with her previous partner. She does seem to be lacking somewhat technically.. The double twist lacked height, no second throw triple, etc. But with time she could improve. It would be nice for Poland to have a pair team again, so I hope it works out for her.

    How about that well known Polish-Canadian Cody Hayinski?
