    Update on Steele & Shultz

    The pair will compete at Skate Detroit in July, the Indy Challenge in August, and are still waiting to hear about international competitions they’ll be a part of.

    They’re working on adding new elements to their routine — including triple flips and triple throws — to help them compete against the best skaters in the world.

    Was very disappointed when MT/M skated bad at nationals. They really impressed me during the Grand prix events and i believe they would have got 3 spots for Canada at worlds if they had competed instead of dube/wolfe

    It would appear that the new team of Wesley Killing and Jordyn Harper has split. He has posted on twitter that he has a tryout with Julia in Montreal coming up. I would assume he's referring to Julia Mercer (N7)

    A local Florida article published after the SP mentioned that Lawrence/Swiegers "did not compete today [Saturday 6/23] because of a training injury." L/S also withdrew from the FS on Sunday morning - hope it's not serious and they will be back to full strength soon!

    Thanks for the info Sylvia. Hope all is OK with them.

    Maxime Deschamps also appears to have found a new partner - he's on the list to compete with Naomie Boudreau at the Québec Summer Championships.

    I agree with you. It would have made better sense to ignore the meltdown at Canadians and sent them on to Worlds, while Dube/Wolfe got more seasoning at the 4CC's. Its just ridiculous how MTM were cut off at the knees, IMO.

    MT/M wouldn't have done very well at Worlds anyway based on their performances during the year. The highest score they've got was 177.43, that would have put them 10th in a best case scenario. This just wasn't their year.

    Of course, prior to Worlds D/R's season-best international score was 176.62 at TEB. If skaters train to peak at Worlds, those scores should be higher than what comes in the GP. As it stands, looking purely at those results, the two teams were in a pretty similar range prior to Nationals, though of course it's comparing scores across different events.

    D/R had 3 deductions in the free at TEB it was a terrible competition for them. MT/M couldn't even get on the podium at nationals after winner the year before; I doubt they would have made up 20 points above their personal best to be in realm of K/S and B/L at Worlds when they couldn't even get to the GPF or beat D/W or L/S at CN.

    I have no doubt they are regrouping and will be much stronger this year. But they certainly didn't deserve to be sent with last seasons performances.
