2010 Polish/Czech/Slovak Championships -- Dec 17-20, 2009
I think its a great Idea to have nationals combined for all the very small but culturally & geographically connected confederations. Others should follow this trend , maybe the Nordic and Balcanic countries.

what happened to verner??? -13 after the sp??? I can understand he had a bad day, but - 13 is too much
and, btw, how many spot has Czech Republic for Vancouver?
Verner finished 4th at the LA world championships hence Czech's have two spot at the Olympics. It will be great to see both these wonderful skaters at the Olympics.

thanx!!! I am so glad we have the possibility to see both these beautiful skater in Vancouver and Torino!! I hope Verner can get all together, and I'm definetly in love with Brezina's skating too since I saw him last year live!
I like them both a lot, but I think the leading man following this year in Europe will be Michal Brezina. He has everything he needs to be a great champion, he has very good technique, musicality and solid consistency in competition.

As far as Verner is concerned, he has the potential to be great as well. But he has some stamina or focus issues and he keeps leaving poits on the table with singling or doubling jumps late in his programs. Until he fixes those, he will not live up to his potential.
So, Amodio won France and Brezina won in the Czech Republic. I believe the warning you hear in the distance is "The young'uns are coming, the young'uns are coming!" Chan in 2008 was just a warning. That said, I'm genuinely surprised that this is the year they're doing it.
Herios, I'm pretty sure Joesitz will forever claim laying eyes on Brezina and his future first (probably before Brezina did!!)
Thank God Tomas earned 2 spots for Czech at LA Worlds, otherwise he'll find himself in the same awkward position as Caro.
Although Michal doesn't have quad yet, he's developed into a very consistent skater (or maybe he hasn't felt too much pressure as Tomas yet). I truely love Tomas' skating, but I started to doubt now if he'll ever be able to skate to his potential (sign). I hope he can prove himself at Euros.

He has an awesome technique ( I can tell you I have not seen such a high flip ever) and the musical choices at such a young age (very dancey) and his strong head for competition all make him most likely a huge favourite in years to come.
Of course, injuries can derail a career, as had already a surgery last year, but we shall see how he evolves.
I can see in Amodio a lot of potential as well, but his technique is not that sound as Brezina's. And that will always be a handicap, when things will get tight.
