    Miriam Ziegler & Severin Kiefer

    Pair skaters Miriam Ziegler and Severin Kiefer represent Austria. Ziegler was born on Mar 19, 1994, in Oberpullendorf, Austria, while Kiefer was born in Kuchl, Austria.
    I just watched these two at the Ondrei Nepela trophy and thought it was time they had a thread to call their own While they may not be the most technically strong skaters they always have such cute programs and costumes and get really into character! I always find them VERY enjoyable to watch!

    Hopefully their long program will go well!

    They are indeed very charming and so funny! Both will also compete at Nice, Trophée Eric Bompard and Skate Canada.

    If wanted, I might can write a bit more - but it must join the queue now,

    Congrats to Miriam and Severin who smashed their previous personal best LP score today with a score of 99.68- over 4 points over their last personal best! They also have a new personal best total score of 147.22 They're going to finish no lower than 5th here against a pretty tough field- they should be proud!

    I'm really delighted with their FS at SC! They've improved so much since I last saw them.

    Congrats to these two on their SP at Euros! They are in 9th, which isn't their best ever placement here, but they did get a new Personal best by over 2 points which they should be very proud of!

    I love this program for them. I was expecting (and hoping!) the score would be higher, but a new PB is certainly a great accomplishment!
