wow A new dance team from Mexico! Does anyone know more about them?
They skated in Canada until recently.
Here's an article (http://www.timescolonist.com/homes/G...tml?id=4112372)
They were both born in Mexico City, however.

Bet many of the skater's PARENTS weren't alive or "conscious" enough to remember that factoid
Looks like Alexandra Najarro is out, and Purich is in.

Good for Natasha ! Hope she does well.
Wicked Yankee Girl
That is a very deep dance field.
Yeah. The first three JGP winners are all here. It's like a preview of the JGPF. Hopefully no one has an off night or they'll likely get left behind.

Very tough debut slot for Edwards and Pang..I really like these young'uns, I think they have a bit of an "it" factor. He has that " so-into-his-partner" thing , and she has some sparkle. So ,as well as seeing the 3 previous events' winners head to head, I'll be anxious to see how they do.
Lifts needed work , here , but there's been time in between.

More or less: more is more
Any predictions? It's the deepest field we've seen so far!
I'm guessing Han Yan and Keiji Tanaka for the two top spots, with He Zhang, Liam Firus, Gordei Gorshkov and Timothy Dolensky fighting for bronze.
Zijun Li, Polina Agafonova and Vanessa Lam are podium favorites. If the former make mistakes I think Miu Sato, Kako Tomotaki, So-Youn Park and Katarina Kulgeyko might sneak in.
Wenjing Sui/Cong Han for gold, no doubt about it. Xiaoyu Yu/Yang Jin and Margaret Purdy/Michael Marinaro also have a good chance for a podium finish. Klara Kadlecova/Petr Bidar and Ekaterina Petaikina/Maxim Kurduykov could also medal.
Three gold winners at the same event?! I'm guessing Victoria Sinitsina/Ruslan Zhiganshin for gold, Nicole Orford/Thomas Williams for silver and Maria Nosulia/Evgen Kholoniuk for bronze. Alexandra Aldridge/Daniel Eaton have an outside shot.
Thank God for Stephane Lambiel and Matt Savoie!
I'm very excited about this event!! Can't wait for it to start.
Why is Najarro out? Is it because of injury or her poor showing at her last JGP?

The Irish/American Team of Aldridge and Eaton are accomplished Dancesport Competitors and study Latin with Elaine Marrero, so they should be fun to watch. For the Free Dance Competition it’s going to be like Junior World’s and should be very entertaining. Kind of a liitle bit from every Country.
Aldridge and Eaton, are dancing to Michael Flatley’s, “Lord of the Dance”. The Russian Team of, Victoria Sinitsina and Ruslan Zhiganshin, portraying the Phantom of the Opera, from the famed L’Opéra Garnier in Paris, France. The Ukrainian Team of, Maria Nosulia and Evgen Kholoniuk, performing their Pink Panther routine - reminiscence of the famous French Detective “Jacques Clouseau”. Canadian’s Nicole Orford and Thomas Williams portraying Scarlet and Rhett from Gone With The Wind, and the Czech Republic’s Team of Karolina Prochazkova and Michal Ceska skating to soundtrack from the Hit Broadway Play “Chicago”. Yiyi Zhang and Nan Wu from China skated the last two years in the JGP Series and could be a contender. Have not heard of the two French Teams. Shari Koch and Christian Nuchtern of Germany have skated JGP before and to Irish Folk (Bill Whelan’s Riverdance) Not sure about some of the other teams.
Eighteen Teams in all, - should be great entertainment, and a really good competition – Let’s hope everyone has a good skate, no one gets hurt, and all the kids enjoy beautiful Innsbruck. Thank You to ISU for videotaping and uploading to You Tube.
