    Steuer worked with Florent Amodio during the Art on Ice shows in Switzerland , but no decision on whether he will be his coach. #Worlds2014

    Now I'm wondering if he'll have the nerves to work with Ingo, if he does we could be about to witness an epic work partnership.

    It's an intriguing possibility. Steuer would be able to give Amodio some interesting material and keep his tacky tendencies in check, but whether he'd make a good coach for a singles skater in general and Amodio specifically is another matter.

    Chafik Besseghier helps his own cause in securing a Worlds spot for 2015 by earning 2 spots for France for next year's Worlds (assuming Florent Amodio comes back healthy and ready for next year).

    A vote by club presidents. Last time, DG got 88%. I doubt Gwendal can do better

    The French Team is on tour this month and this is a pretty good quality link. (I don't think it's geoblocked)
    Brian, Flo Chafik, Mae-Berenice, Lenaelle, the 3 ice dance teams and James-Cipres are doing the tour.

    Brian recently said that he is still considering pairs and that would only be a 2-3 year stint. He wants to have pairs experience to be more knowledgeable in his coaching career. He even said he would have to move to Detroit or Russia to be in a pair center. There are a couple of ladies under consideration at the moment. (We all know he would prefer Valentina)

    Thanks, Sylvia! Interesting to see Albert Camus mentioned in an figure skating interwiew. Le chat Chafik got lots of sympathy points from me after this interwiew.

    I think I saw that - he also mentioned not wanting to do shows for too long, because he figures that if he wants to coach it's not a good idea to be away from competitive skating for too long. Sounds like he has the whole coaching thing pretty well planned, I hope it works out for him.

    That's a nice interview. I'm super impressed with what Chafik has been able to achieve considering how late he started skating, and while he'll never have the best basics, I like that he's ambitious and trying to do his own thing choreo-wise.

    We can't fault Brian for being inconsistent in his statements, he's been saying the pairs thing for a long time, the ridiculous part of it being that he never moved away from France to further his singles career and he doesn't like living abroad, so what are the odds of that happening now? Besides pairs is really tough and he is not a spring chicken, I'm afraid it could lead to some nasty injury, something he hasn't had so far. Long story short, I think it's a bad idea.

    Chafik is a nice fellow, I hope he continues on a good path.

    Valentina Marchei, who competes in singles for Italy and trains in Detroit. She and Joubert used to be a couple. She's now engaged to Rockne Brubaker, who's skated Pairs for the US, but presumably is retired, as he's taken a director position at a rink in (or near) Chicago. (See below: I got this so wrong.)

    I don't see it happening, either, though I understand his wanting some actual experience if he's to coach any aspiring pairs skaters in the future.

    Maybe Joubert should shadow Ingo Steuer, if Savchenko/Massot end up skating for France (too many strong personalities for it to ever happen, of course)

    That'll be news to Stefania Berton (and Rockne himself ).
