    The Dance Hall 10: The Saitama Samba 2022-2023

    Ya, I think a lot feel the same about Gilles & Poirier but the judges weren't rewarding them with the quirk and they only started to get better recognition in terms of placements once they played the judges game and became more "traditional - with a side of quirky!". Its sad tho for teams who...

    The Dance Hall 10: The Saitama Samba 2022-2023

    Can any non Canadian former skater be a coach at a Skate Canada Club just based on their former competitive results or do they need to go through all the same coaching courses etc as a Canadian citizen pursing a coaching career? I think I recall Scott posting a while ago where he was taking...

    State of Canadian skating for the next quad

    Nik said yesterday on CBC TV interview that he hurt his back in practice at the Worlds which probably affected his performance and stamina. In the same TV program P&P stated that they had not decided their future yet.

    The Dance Hall 9: Bring the Bling or No Beijing 2021-2022

    All I’m saying is that its presumptive to take them out of next years conversation since we haven’t heard it from them. You say in a post up thread that “It does sound like Papadakis/Cizeron are also retiring but since there hasn't been an official announcement, I didn't mark them off my list...

    The Dance Hall 9: Bring the Bling or No Beijing 2021-2022

    They are doing Stars on Ice shows but I think your retirement statement is a bit presumptive. I’d hate to spread rumours until I hear it spoken from them.

    Russian Figure Skater tests positive for drugs - delays ceremony for team medals

    Maybe they should do what the US does every year and do a medal presentation with the fourth place skaters/teams and award a "pewter" so that if the medals are taken away from Russian Team and KV, then the fourth place teams at least got to stand in the olympic medal park and receive recognition...

    Russian Figure Skater tests positive for drugs - delays ceremony for team medals

    How long has Morisi been training with Eteri? I don't follow mens skating so much, but he seems to have come out of nowhere. Has his "stamina" improved since joining that team?

    Russian Figure Skater tests positive for drugs - delays ceremony for team medals

    What would have happened if Kamila were a few months older and 16 years old?

    Russian Figure Skater tests positive for drugs - delays ceremony for team medals

    So in the ISU 2016 Yelin Kim ruling they place the blame squarely on a 13 year old shoulders for her violation but now they say KV's age protects her!!?? "The Panel is nevertheless of the view that, in order for an athlete to be bound to anti-doping rules, the issue of age is in principle of no...

    I wonder if this will impact holding Canadians in Ottawa?

    2022 Four Continents Comes To Rude Euro Land (Relocation to Tallinn)

    IF (big IF) the Olympics get postponed - and assuming 4CC takes place - it might be wise for those countries like Can and US who have not yet designated 4CC entries if they put their Olympic Team members as the subs so they could gain valuable points if Olympics gets postponed. There seems to...

    Canadian Championships to return to Ottawa - Jan. 6-13, 2022

    At Nationals, most competitors will be flying or driving in from across Canada and have family members with them and stay with them in their hotel rooms. So there will be ~200 competitors / coaches arriving with Skate Canada having no idea who they have been in contact with in past weeks and...

    Canadian Championships to return to Ottawa - Jan. 6-13, 2022

    I can't see this going on in the current format. If any athlete gets CV, they are in danger of not being able to attend the Olympics. China will not allow anyone into their country who tests positive and those who have had CV can continue to test positive for months after their isolation is...
