...are 4 new pair teams that have formed.
Natalie Kwong has quit. Matthew Penasse and Christopher Sisca are looking.
Does anyone know if Hole and Johnson are still skating/looking for new partners?
Too bad about Hole and Johnson. They had some promise, but it was crowded at the top for Canadian pairs.
I’m surprised to hear that Mathew Penasse is still available. He’s a good size and has solid pair skills IIRC.
Latest batch of changes:
Adam Rippon - Brian Orser > Ghislain Brand > Jason Dungjen
Javier Fernandez - Nikolai Morozov > Brian Orser
Kaleigh Hole/Adam Johnson - split
Hole is going to focus on singles, whilst Johnson retired.
Darja Popova/Bruno Massot - new team (training under Steuer presumably)
What country are they going to represent?
Lucie Mysliveckova/Matej Nowak - split
He retired, she is looking for a new partner.
Peter Liebers (broke a bone, question mark over the next season)
Shawn Sawyer confirmed
Sorry if it´s already posted somewhere, at the latest ISU Communication, the ISU decided to make Cyprus, Grenada and Morocco to new provisional ISU Members for Figure skating.
Jenna McCorkell & Kevin VDP left Juri Bureiko- training at Nottingham Ice Center with Gurgen Vardanjan (not sure how permenant this is). New programs choreographed already by Lorna Brown in LA. (hope they are good- cant be any worse! )
Thanks a lot, lay'dback.
Did Vardanjan relocate from Hungary to UK permanently or is he only consulting skaters there?
I can't say I'm surprised they didn't retire.
http://www.iceskating.org.uk/node/4571. Vardanjan is now also coaching David Richardson who trains along side his son, Tigran. It is my understanding that Kevin and Jenna are good friends with David; so it does not really surprise me that they are going to his coach now. Let's just hope that the coaching they receive is good enough for them to have no trouble keeping their jumps so that at least that portion of their "programs" are watchable.
