The same could be said in reverse. C/P or M/C etc. may find themselves lower in the standings when new senior teams move up from juniors and other teams improve. It's all in your perspective.I feel like C/P could be like P/C and vault into the top ranks of ice dance teams in just one season. They are at about that age P/C were when they went from a team that finished 15th at Europeans the previous season to World champions the next. I don't expect the same thing to happen to C/P partly because there is way more depth now in ice dance but teams like H/B need to keep improving or they may find themselves looking up in the standings not just to C/P but M/C.
I do too. Anthony is even starting to look a bit like Guillaume Cizeron. The key now is for Christina to catch up to Anthony just like Gabriella did to Cizeron which took them to another level in just one season. They are at about the same age P/C made their big move in 2014-15. Only problem is P/C had no competition nationally while C/P are skating for a country with the best depth by far in Ice Dance so they won't get as many chances at the big competitions until the older teams finally retire. I would love to see Christina get her citizenship and for them to pull a upset and make the 2022 Olympic team. S/S and C/B have both been on 2 Olympic teams i want to see some new blood. Heck Evan Bates has been to 3 Olympics.I am a big fan of theirs. I expect them to pass Hawayek & Baker soon.
"In our free time, we watch old skating videos to find ideas for elements and transitions," Ponomarenko shares. "I'm very excited for our new free dance this year. It's very different from anything we've ever done. It's a lot of fun learning a new dance style and exploring different ideas."
