    NNN skating pairs!

    I just read that NNN is skating pairs with Themi Lefteris. Maybe this was discussed before, but its the first time I've heard about it. Hopefully they can make nationals!!!

    Thank you for the news, I haven't heard it before. Here is an article about Leftheris with his previous partner: http://www.goldenskate.com/articles/2001/012302.shtml

    Thans Arianne for the news and thanks to Ptchka for the link on Themi.

    It's delightful news and who knows what will happen. All the best to them. BTW, what happened to Jacqueline?

    Hooray!!! She is my favorite. I was just devastated when her hip problems kept her out of the ranks with the top ladies.

    From what I can tell, after 2002, this partnership broke up, and Leftheris skated in 2004 with Nicole Hartunian and last year with Julian Burns. That seems like a lot of partnerships in a short time, but perhaps that's the way it is in pairs. I have no idea why his previous partnerships disbanded.

    Jackie Jimenez skated briefly with another partner in Florida in 2003 but has since retired, I believe.

    Leftheris and Julian Burns placed 13th in senior at 2005 US Nationals (they had a good free skate, landing side by side 3toes and 3sals), but she later decided to retire from competitive skating to focus on college and other activities.

    Question: How much has NNN grown since she made the Nationals Sr. Ladies podium? Needless to say, every young lady grows between age 12 & 17 or whatever NNN is now. However, I'm still hopin' that she's relatively petite & easy to lift and throw.

    Here are some pictures of Naomi from 2003 at age 18. I expect they're closer to what she looks like now than what she looked like in 1999-2000 (a couple older pics at the bottom of the page).

    NNN was in that category of Great Skaters that Never Were, unfortunately.

    I hope that the man on the team is very tall & strong (like Artur Dmitriev) because NNN has grown a lot (taller & more muscular/'solid'). Tai Babilonia was a big gal for a pairs skater, so it's not impossible.

    Yeah. Based on what shown in the photo, she has to trim down a little for pair.

    She has those natural 'flair' of presentation. Find a right partner she'll do great as pair.....I'm wondering why Jenny does not skate to pairs, in US it is relative easy to make National team in pairs than in lady. And Jenny's body type looks build for pair skating. she does not even need triming down.

    I saw NNN in person this Summer. She looked a lot slender than she was in 2003's pictures. She has a lot of strong muscles top to buttom.

    This news sounds interesting! And their coach is...........? If it's Mr. Nicks, which seems logical, didn't he have lots of success in pairs with Meno and Sand, and also the Carruthers?
