    Skaters' kids who don't skate:
    Navka and Zhulin's daughter is a tennis player.
    Daria Gronkova quit skating several years ago.
    Alexei Yagudin has said that he and Tatiana Totmianina do not want their daughter Liza to go into competitive skating.
    Poor Annabelle

    Actually, I think it's sweet, and I hope they have a good relationship.

    Did Sasha Cohen's sister, Natasha, ever skate?

    No big deal and I could be wrong, but I interpreted the OP's intent for this thread as a look forward, not sideways or backward ...

    ... but as long as the question was asked:
    Alexe Gilles, Piper's twin, skated at a Canadian sectional competition this year (did not win, but placed pretty high, if I recall correctly?).

    Oh, yes, silly me had forgotten -- and I think it's the best part of the story. Thanks for making that important point, sillylionlove.
    I believe I had read a while back how Galindo was pleasantly surprised and honored that Yamaguchi brought her daughter to him. Nice that the former partners have reconciled to this extent.

    I know for awhile that Viktor Petrenko's daughter Viktoria trained, and she looked very meticulous in terms of technique, but I don't know whether she still skates.

    How great that Klimova and Ponomarenko's son is skating. I have such an affection for them--probably my favorite ice dancers ever. And I love a lot of ice dancers!

    Viktoria plays tennis now, as does Oksana Grishuk's daughter

    Really? That's an interesting crossover. Good to hear that Viktoria is enjoying a sport she chose.

    Katia Shpilband just finished fourth at Midwestern Sectionals in Junior Ladies and will be moving on to Nationals. Her step sequences and basic skating are to die for. (DUH!)

    The feminine gender is the reason for the extra "-a" at the end of her name, if I am not mistaken.

    The daughters of Naomi Lang, Shae Lynne Bourne, and Natalia Michkoutienok all skate. Natalia and Naomi were posting on facebook about how excited they were when their daughters landed their first axel.

    Maybe one day, Natasha Hanline (Natalia's daughter) will skate with Artur Jr!

    Shae Lynn Bourne has a daughter? I missed that. I know she has a newborn son, who did quite a brilliant job at playing an adorable little spider in the Family Show, but I wasn't aware of any other kids. But, yes, that is so sweet that the moms are so excited about their kids skating. Natalia (I'm assuming it's her, the username is Mishkutenok) posted a video of Natasha skating on youtube-she is adorable, as you might expect.

    Maybe one day, Natasha Hanline (Natalia's daughter) will skate with Artur Jr!
    Given their age gap, I don't see that happening, even if Natasha ever decides to switch to pairs when she gets older. But, there may be hope for another "Mishkutenok & Dmitriev" team if Natalia's daughter ever skaters with Artur's youngest son, who according to Wikipedia, is around 4 or 5 years old.

    I mentioned upthread that I thought Maxim Naumov skates. He does, and he qualified for junior nationals at the Juvenile level this year. Daniel Petrenko (Vladimir's son and Viktor's nephew) qualified in novice men.
