I recently reviewed the pairs at olympics. After V/M's really good FS it was clear that this was their last competition together. They looked very happy (both of them) and relieved(him ) Kisses & no cries! Congrats to Tatiana and Stanislav with 8th place. I like their "Pearl Harbor" program and I think this was one of their best FS-performances
Stanislav has often been complained about as being bad for Tatiana. I think he is one of the best at lifts and throws, though. Exciting to see if Tatiana finds a new partner as good as Stanislav, who can do the other difficulties well too.
Good luck to both with their future carriers. Maybe Steuer has a job for Stanislav , he is a sports instructor after all. Let him teach Tatiana and her new partner to do lifts, twists and throws with the same hight and timing as Tatiana and he did
Now I am curious who will be Tatiana's new skating partner. Steuer talks a little about it here.
Steuer is already searching for a new partner (not a German, clearly), to prepare his new pair with a view to Sochi 2014. Steuer found a dozen "suitors", and being an experienced coach, he is bound to choose the best.
