19 Olympic ice dance places will be decided in London, Ontario this week, but the only avenue to Sochi for [Danielle] O’Brien and [Greg] Merriman now will be the Olympic Qualification competition in Germany in September for one of the remaining five spots.
Speaking from Detroit, Danielle O’Brien said they had already moved on.
“We have broken down the Finnstep Short Dance for the next season and doing a lot of exercises in order to have every edge in the dance correct before they [the ISU] even release the key points.”
“I must say it’s going pretty well and I’m surprised it’s moving so quickly. We can already skate a fairly good, full pattern,” Danielle said.
The determined Olympic Winter Institute Of Australia scholarship holders moved to Detroit 18 months ago in their quest to represent Australia at the Olympics and see this setback as a flying start on the coming season.
