@Jeschke Have they been competing for other countries before? It could be a release issue as well.
I thought about that too, but since she is born in UKR and competed already the last 2 seasons internationally for UKR, I ruled that out.

Her results from JGP last season (2019/20) are still in. No disqualification there.

Confirmation from Alexia herself today (includes 2 photos): https://twitter.com/alexia_paganini/status/1276225504425762816
hi! as many of you have heard i have decided from this season forward I will be training in Champery, Switzerland with Stephane Lambiel as my head coach. I’m really excited that I have the opportunity to train in such an amazing environment with such amazing people

ETA that I just came across this March 2018 interview article in English about Paganini's family connections to Switzerland:

Alexia also posted her news on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/CB3eUnBsX3d/

Well, does Russia has some suitable partners for each of them? When Spanish dancers Hurtado/Diaz broke up, it was actually gain for Spain. Instead of one reasonable ice dance couple they now have two. I am pretty sure Russia currently have excess of broken up partnerships, so there should be someone available.

Bummer. It's always sad when there's a little less diversity in skating, especially in pairs when there are so few to begin with and it's dominated by only a few counties.

Last season there were two Spanish pair teams, are Broda/Betegon still around?

I'm now posting updates for the Team Champery skaters in this thread: https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/th...h-stéphane-lambiel.102221/page-2#post-5839069

ETA:

2 tweets re. Deniss Vasiljevs from a series of tweets today: https://twitter.com/JudithDomi1/status/1288940692715319299
#denissvasiljevs about his new programs according to the German „Piruette“ magazine:
The SP is patriotic - has something to do with Latvia
In the LP he will show a new side of himself and worked with a professional ballet dancer.
I finished my second university year. During isolation I could study with a more tight schedule. I am studying human sciences. When I am done I will be some kind of an educator.“

The junior ice dance team that began representing Poland last season, Olivia Oliver and Joshua Andari, were also looking forward to skating together again starting today at Mariposa (from the Skate Ontario's latest update: "... individuals that are part of the same household or social circle are not required to follow physical distancing requirements within Ontario recreational facilities"): https://www.instagram.com/p/CDPlekbpJiY/

As we're going round the grounds, IceDome (Michael Huth's group) has upped their social media output lately, though they don't tag people so I can only name the ones I know by sight or can figure out from comments.

Social distancing photos from the July mini-camps at Oberstdorf that replaced their first scheduled Oberstdorf camp once *********-19 restrictions lifted: Nicole Schott and Michael Huth; Andrea Vaturi (I think?), Nicole Schott, Lukas Britschgi, Noemie Bodenstein; Maia Sorensen.

Val Gardena camp videos: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4 (ft. Lukas Britschgi, both Bodensteins, possibly Maia Sorensen?); Day 5, Day 6, Day 9.

A couple of extra photos from dance teacher David Cipolleschi: with Nicole Schott and Jenni Saarinen; with Noemie Bodenstein; with an untagged but very flexible child.

Some stories from both camps are saved to their instagram page too. Nicole Schott did a takeover day for ChiqueSport that included a live stretching class from Val Gardena, but I can't find that it's been saved anywhere.

Val Gardena ends tomorrow and the final Oberstdorf camp starts up on 8 August, so look for more photos and videos then.

Via Benoit Richaud's Instagram stories, there was a gala earlier today in Courchevel (Peak Ice Camps) and Estonia's Eva-Lotta Kiibus performed her new SP(?), choreographed by Richaud to Harry Styles' "Sign of the Times."

Italy's Gabriele Frangipani also performed a program under spotlights, choreographed by Richaud to James Arthur's "Impossible"(?).

Patinage Magazine has shared 3 sets of Oliver Brajon's photos of the international gala in Courchevel on their Instagram account: [Set 1] [Set 2] [Set 3]
Tagged OES skaters include Eva-Lotta Kiibus, Gabriele Frangipani (both mentioned in my post above), France's Wagret/Souquet, Maïa Mazzara & Adrien Tesson. (Non-OES skaters include Kevin Aymoz and Daniel Grassl.)

Daša Grm posted on her Insta that she worked with Ulla Papp (coach/mother of the Finnish skating siblings) and Tom Dickson (who choreographed her new FS) during the ISU's figure skating training camp & seminar in Celje, Slovenia, July 21-August 1, 2020: https://www.instagram.com/p/CDYIXouFMnj/

Choinard/Mayr, the CanAustrians, are back training together now that regulations allow it.
I think they look like a well matched team from Choinard's Instagram posts. Hopefully there will be a chance for them to try and get minimums.

anyone can give me a heads up why Yuri Hulitski retired?
