    GS' 4CC Pairs FS recap article: http://www.goldenskate.com/2013/02/d...ur-continents/
    “We are also very thankful that we skated our very best short program,” she [Duhamel] added. “It’s a mix of emotions because we finished our skate and we felt very disappointed, but then to go on the podium and to achieve this goal, we felt very proud. In the end, we are proud of what we did this week. We are proud to be on the top of the podium at such a prestigious competition and we will take a lot from that.”

    “I was telling Meagan, it was on my list to stand on the podium and hear the national anthem,” said Radford. “I’ve been waiting for that moment since I was 19, so I will remember that forever.”
    ...
    “We feel great about our performance,” said Moore-Towers. “It is a bit unfortunate that we lost the championship on an element [throw triple loop] we do easily all the time, but we don’t intend on that happening next time.”

    “(At the ISU World Championships next month) we want to skate two clean programs,” she said. “We want to better ourselves from here and from Nationals and we’re really hoping that lands us on the podium. There are a lot of teams vying for the spot, and we are trying to get it. If we keep working hard and skate the way we know we can, it’s attainable.”
    "Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden

    David Baden tweeted this yesterday:

    Exciting news regarding @mhjd_85 @Rad85E to be released later today 12 amazing reasons to stay tuned @SkateCanada @icenetwork @FSUniverse
    I’m guessing (OK hoping ) that Meagan & Eric have been added to the CSOI cast. I very much missed having a pair team in the show last year.

    Um, really? If he's trying out with someone else, are they a clockwise jumper? Not easy to find for pairs.

    Canadian Pairs 2013/2014 - News and updates

    During Canadian Nationals, someone at GS questioned whether Piper Gilles and Rudi were married. Apparently both Facebook pages listed they were (one of those joke Facebook marriages). As I recall, Dragon Lady mentioned Piper and Rudi were goofing around at the rink, doing lifts. This could be a similar joke.

    I have not seen this photo, could it even be Piper in the photo?

    This Wikipedia link states that Katherine Bobak has re-teamed up with Matthew Pennasse (career section)

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kathe...obak#section_1

    I realize wiki is not always a reliable source of information so can anyone confirm if this is true?

    Also ..a new partnership between Wesley Killing and Tara Hancherow seems to be in the works according to his face book page.

    Really? I'm glad she's back skating but not excited by the Pennasse partnership. Seems to me like she's a lot stronger than him.

    I have a confirmed report that Natasha Purich and Sebastian Arcieri have split and that she is trying out with Mervin Tran.

    Thanks.

    Also, does anyone know if Andrea Poapst has tried out with Mervin? As a Canadian with pairs experience, and many excellent pairs qualities, it would be great to get her back into the mix in a partnership that would be Olympic-eligible. If not with Mervin, then possibly with another Canadian man, if some retirements/splits occur in top teams post-2014.

    Really? Really? That is my dream pairing since 2012 Nats. I hope they click. Go Natasha and Mervin!
