    It was discussed at length in other thread. Both teams have unfortunately split. Jones was seen trying out with Beharry in KW. Bobak was seen by herself in Barrie. There isn't always an official announcement. Jones/Gaskell had a bit of a rough Nationals. It's not entirely surprising. Bobak/Beharry is still a jaw-dropper for me. It still seems so wrong.

    Are they going to represent Czech Republic or Italy (Martina should have dual citizenship and she competed for Italy until Junior).
    I guess the answer is Czech, but who knows....

    Since Martina has been competing for the Czech Republic internationally I would asssume so too.

    Jones has moved to Cali to skate with someone there. In other news, Vanessa Crone is skating with a Dane, but they will represent Canada.

    Assuming this is true, why would they skate for Canada and not Denmark?

    Coach Bin Yao announced to the Chinese press that Zhang/Zhang have split and that the new Chinese pair team of Peng/Zhang has been formed.

    Dan Zhang (she) has retired and Hao Zhang (he) will skate with Cheng Peng, age 17 - link to separate news/discussion thread in GSD: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=83573

    Dance: Kate Louise Bagnall & Rory Shanahan (GBR) have also split (ISU JGP competitors).

    Zhang Yue/Wang Lei has also been rumoured to split. Yao Bin said there may be a big shuffle in the pairs.

    They won a couple of JGP and JGPF medals and placed 9th at the last 2 4CCs.

    Surely for Czech Republic, she had already done that in singles. I would see them first at Czech FSA test skate at the end of August, training inside infos are positive (SBS 2A and triples, starting with throw triples up to Flip), but you would never until the first public showing. As far as I know, Martina is Italian citizen (her mother is "South Tyrolean") and her father and half of the family is from Czech Republic. I don´t know if the citizenship process would be ready to Sochi, but we would see after first season together and if their would be a potential for Team event in Sochi. It´s too soon to bet now.

    From that:
    Jean-Luc Baker, whose partnership with Joylyn Yang ended when Yang was forced to retire due to injury, has teamed with Kaitlin Hawayek. Like Olson & Hubbell, they will also train in Detroit.
    I'm a little sad that Baker won't stay in Seattle, though I can understand going to Detroit. I loved that Baker/Yang had a unique look and approach--which I (perhaps incorrectly?)--attribute to their being coached by his dad. Hope that the new partnership works out very well! And wishing Joylyn Yang the best with her back.
    BARK LESS. WAG MORE.

    I'm excited for Jean Luc to have a partner, but I'm surprised that he's moving to skate in Detroit. I loved the OD's and some of the FD's that he and Joylyn skated together.

    The JLs had The Best programs. The prospect of Jean-Luc and new partner getting all Detroitified makes me sad.
