There were some rumours swirling on Xitter back in late April that Brooke McIntosh's new Euro partner was Marco Zandron from Spain. Looks like there may be some truth to the rumours - there are a number of photos of them skating together posted here: https://eislauffotos.de/piwigo/index.php?/category/2572#&gid=1&pid=24 According to Germany's figure skating fed's website, the event they were taking part in was for both pair skating and ice dance: https://www.eislauf-union.de/de/media1/news/1064-nachwuchs-lehrgรคnge-zur-saisonvorbereitung-in-dortmund-und-berlin
So, the other day, I saw a post on X with photos of both McIntosh/Zandron as well as Gabbie Izzo & Luc Maierhofer. I didn't think much of it but I just recalled that Gabbie has been posting on her IG stories the past couple weeks about relocating to Germany and now, I'm thinking perhaps there is something here we weren't aware of.

If they pair up I feel like Mcintosh wont get released by Skate Canada
Well, this is the US Pairs thread not the Canadian Pairs thread but yes, I agree - I can't see Skate Canada releasing Brooke McIntosh. I could see them releasing Gabbie Izzo back to the USFS or to Austria since the partnership with Thi Ferland lasted all of 1 SP in competition up there.

According to skatingscores.com, no they have not. Maybe only at a local competition- if ever.

Flores/Wang added a throw 3F to their repertoire back in March (after the throw 3S & 3Lo):

Saya Carpenter/Jon Maravillaโ€™s new throw 3S:

Saya and John seemed to have made Yuko Sato their primary coach.

Valentina Plazas and Maximiliano Fernandez ๐Ÿค— have started a GoFundMe page.
Their expenses far outweigh their earnings from coaching plus their funding.
Val posted their GoFundMe link on X/Twitter tonight.



Another way to support Val and Max is to subscribe to their joint Instagram account @vmskates

Thanks to any contributors! ๐Ÿซถ

Looks like Hanns/Neudecker are still with Larry Ibarra. The metastrength IG profile is private but a Google search of the company name StrengthGround shows its a gym in Colorado Springs and the reviews mention Coach Steven and Coach Larry.
