speaking about coaches: does anyone know, what's next for Michael Huth? With Carolina and Thomasz retiring from their active career, what's next for him?
Michael Huth coaches a couple of other skaters including Joti Poliziakis (GER). National bronze medalist Nicole Schott (GER) wants to switch coaches and move to Oberstdorf to train with him as well.
You found an interesting spelling mix for Tomas (looks like a kind of German-Polish spelling) ;-)
About the spelling for Tomas: yep it kind of is. I knew before that the "s" has that hook above. I didn´t find it, so I went for the only orthography which made sense out of the spelling of his name. As for the "h": typical german typo
I´m happy for Nicole, I hope this step will work out for her
You´re right of course, but the "sh" looks so weird behind his name that I decided that must be wrong It was more just gut feelingQuote Originally Posted by hanca View Post

nothing really surprising, but szolkowy confirmed his retirement after this season
he and his body is tired, the jumps didn't go as easy as in earlier times. he addedthat the first nights after the sochi free skate were horrible. but he wanted to skate worlds and show that he can do better.
As for Carolina, she told a lot of times she will still skate and would like to stay in shape as Lambiel and Arakawa. But she will definitely train less and would like to concentrate on artistry. She would like to have programs where she don't need to count and have the limits of roles. What I read is she will skate in shows and not in competition any more. So worlds will almost certain be her last competition (maybe Japan Open or something like it).
Thank you, Robin and Aliona ! You will be badly missed.....
It looked like Ingo in the kiss and cry corner couldn't decide whether he should cry or put on a happy face .....
Lynn Rutherford just tweeted:
"KKany reports Aliona Savchenko said she & coach Steuer might announce her new partner at an exhibition in Chemnitz in 4 wks"
ETA link to a new thread started in GSD: Hearsay: Aliona Savchenko may continue competing with a new partner...

Please, please, please let it be Mervin Tran.
Congrats to Aliona and Robin on world title #5! I can't believe that was their last comp : I'm a little torn now about her going on without Robin...
So is she going to skate with Robin in their shows while also training the new guy?! That seems weird, just trading out partners between practice sessions.
