Well if he’s determined to stay with that coach, and I was the mother of an eligible female skater, this would not be considered an option.
I totally agree. Who would want their daughter or for that matter a son in such a toxic potentially abusive environment. I'm surprised she has students now.

Thanks, Ross - I saw Instagram story clips of Megan W. & Blake E. practicing side-by-side triples (Salchow and 3T+2T+2T) together.
They’ve also shown Chelsea Liu practicing with Chris.
Here's their clip of Chelsea Liu's twist with Chris K.: https://www.instagram.com/p/CKkt0MnDunp/

Kate Finster and her brother, Chase, are also at Great Park Ice in Irvine - I've heard both are partner searching (separately) & this recent death spiral clip was just for fun: https://www.instagram.com/p/CKUulMRD86U/

Knierim/Frazier article by @clairecloutier (Feb. 9):
Excerpt:
Knierim and Frazier were named to the U.S. team for the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2021 in Stockholm. The event is scheduled for March 22-28. In addition, Knierim and Frazier must submit videos of their programs by February 19 to hopefully attain the technical element minimum scores.
"We just try not to worry," Knierim said of the uncertainties. "If we don't wind up going to Worlds due to the points pending, or the fact that the Championships are canceled, we'll just find the positivity in that and start building for next year. For now, we'll stay in the moment and wait for decisions."
But there is no question of their desire to compete. "We would love to go to the World Championships more than anything," Knierim said. "If they find a way to host it and do it safely, we definitely want to be there. Obviously, safety first; we don't want to put anyone in harm's way. But if the opportunity comes, we will definitely take it."

Can someone tell me which competitions Alexa & Chris did their quad twist in? Or any other team did a quad twist?

So, K/F skated / submitted their videos to the ISU yesterday, no? Any news?
I would expect that the review process takes a few days/week. I'm not sure how they are handling the review process itself - ie sending videos to judges with their GOE emailed back or making them log onto a secure website and input their GOE, etc but I would expect that there is some turnaround time in getting the programs reviewed and those results certified.

None that I’ve heard, though I would assume if it hadn’t gone okay they wouldn’t have advertised that the submitted their videos to the ISU? Or would somehow be scrambling to try to get to Challenge Cup (which would most likely be nearly impossible). I wonder if they will make all the video submissions available to the general public? I would love to see all of them and it’s sort of like a competition.

^ Yeah. I know it will take time for the ISU to review but I was curious if anyone saw anything posted on social media or elsewhere

Looks like Danny O'Shea and Kate Finster have been spending time at Jenni & Todd's rink.

Sources:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CLh6L_bDQFC/ - Kate doing a throw (anyone recognize who's throwing her?) ETA: I think it's Chris, I didn't recognize him initially - the video makes him look like he has a ponytail or manbun

I always look at these group photos and it throws my sense of who is tall or short - Danny is actually taller than I thought and Brian shorter. Danny looks 'small' on TV to me for some reason.

C/J out for personal reasons unrelated to *********-19 (whatever that means). Cain-Gribble/Leduc in for worlds


ETA: Could they be splitting?
