He had his last season ruined by injuries/back surgery and a not so happy season before that. A GP spot would be a great way for him to come back, competing with the best. I'm curious about his new programs choreographed by Irina Romanova(SP) and Salome Brunner(FP). I so want Adrian to be successful again and make it to Sochi
Sad to hear about Contesti. He brought a lot of joy in the men's competitions for me.
Contesti is a crowd pleaser and I'm sure he will enjoy a show skating career.
I feel bad for Han Yan as he was presumably promised an oversea trip for choreography and he was hoping for Patrick's choreographer (Nichol). Chinese fans are upset about his being kept at Junior. Who do you think has a better chance of placing top 10 at Worlds 2013 to secure two spots for China for Sochi, Nan Song or Han Yan?
Don't really watch ice dance but wished K/G-S got 2 assignments
Gotta Have Music
Got to add Stephen Carriere. So glad he was back @ US Nationals this season.
Yankowskas/Reagan- I think they have only one assignment so I would like them to get a second one at Skate America.
Polina Korobeynikova- Get a second assignment at Cup of Russia
Martiusheva/Rogonov- They have no assignments so hopefully Russia will give them one.
I would love to see Yuna Kim and JOannie Rochette come back (moreso than Miki Ando) and enter the GP series.
Yankowskas & Reagan
Samuelson & Gilles
ditto for Joannie (2) Yuna (1) as I think she would not accept two. I am getting more hopeful and excited for her return. Long shot, but! It will invigorate Mao and I predict Mao will be jumping really well. If Zhang did it in two seasons with young coaches, Mao should be able with her talent and the Satos. Dying to see elegant Joannie skate again!
- Armin Mahbanoozadeh, USA
- Elladj Balde, Canada
I still believe these boys were robbed at the Nationals!
Aaaaand Adrian Schultheiss of Sweden!!!
Deedee, you watched Canadian Nationals?
How did you like Maxim-Billy Fortin?
I wish that Sasha Cohen and Yu-Na Kim return to competitive skating also These 2 are absolutely the definition of the beauty and the art of skating
