Confirmation from TASS that Annabelle Morozov has been released by Russia and will skate with Jeffrey Chen:

If I have missed this from another thread, mea culpa.

It was in the Russian news thread earlier today.

To clarify: Today's TASS article does not mention Chen. Anything GOEs posted the TASS link on X (linked above) and wrote "She [Annabelle Morozov] is said to have formed a partnership with Jeffrey Chen."
Neither skater nor MIDA has announced the partnership to date.

ETA:
It was in the Russian news thread earlier today.

Machine translated excerpt from the Russian article: "Earlier, a RIA Novosti source reported that the American side [USFS] sent a corresponding release [request] to the FFKKR. Morozov’s pairing with Russian Igor Eremenko broke up and now the figure skater is training in a duet with American Jeffrey Chen [per an unnamed source]."

Wishful thinking: Jeffery and Katerina Wolfkostin will reunite (They wouldn't have to start from square 1, they have great lines, and yes, they had some disaster falls and mess-ups, but they can be overcome.) Morozov can skate with Tsarevski.

Marriage records are not public in Colorado, legally speaking. This is not the only skating forum where an anonymous poster is making this claim very insistently without offering any evidence besides the factually inaccurate claim that it would be “public record,” in case anyone is wondering how seriously to take this.
Marriage records are public record in North Dakota. N/M’s isn’t listed yet, but it has only been a few days since the wedding.

Okay? My post you just quoted from a few months ago was in response to some anonymous poster who dive-bombed multiple forums as soon as the engagement was announced to insist that N/M were already married and that it was “public record” in Colorado. It had nothing to do with their actual, well-documented recent wedding.

I’m sure they really are married now, and congrats to them.

I wasn't criticizing you, truly. I had seen the poster claiming here, there and everywhere they were already married. I was just posting to show there will be a public record of the marriage eventually in ND.

DL just mentioned in the TSL GP Assignments review the following -

1) Michael Parsons had knee surgery which is the reason for their later GP assignments
2) CarPon are skating to Carmen - which... I have thoughts and my first reaction is concern over such a warhorse music selection.

timestamped to where he mentions this information - https://youtu.be/2JwD24fKcBY?si=iUJbP-vVnAuTmbzO&t=3738

I knew Parsons had to have an injury! I hope his knee heals up quickly and well.

Given Scott's history with Carmen I'm even more ???? lol
