    Daniel Samohin

    Israeli figure skater Daniel Samohin was born on Mar 12, 1998 in Tel Aviv, Israel.

    The teen made his debut on the senior Grand Prix in the 2015-16season at the Cup of China. He was born in Tel Aviv, Israel to Russian parents, but lives and trains in Lake Arrowhead, CA. Daniel used to skate for the US until switching to Israel in the 2013-14 season. He is coached by his dad Igor, and his mother Irina is listed as his choreographer. He also has an older brother, Stanislav, who used to skate for Russia. Daniel is the current Israeli men's national champion.

    Samohin captured the gold medal at the 2016 Junior Worlds Championships, the first ever win at an ISU Championships for an Israeli skater.

    Daniel caught my eye on the JGP last season, and I was very impressed with him at the Euros. Consistency is an issue, but I think he is a very good performer, with interesting programs and a lot of potential. He seems to be friendly with everyone he meets as well. Good luck in seniors, Daniel!

    The family has interested me since I saw Daniel at US Nationals win fourth in novices in 2013.

    He did so well at Europeans this season! Congratulations to Daniel for getting a GP next season!

    You might want to add his competititive info from
    http://tracings.net/samo-dani.html and his ISU bio

    Daniel won the Philadephia Summer International competition today with a score of 188.77.

    Video of his SP (same Scorpions program from last season). The FS hasn't been uploaded yet. Kind of a rough skate, but I imagine his wasn't the only one.

    Daniel Samohin hit quad toe, quad Sal & triple Axel to start his free, then missed a few. 125.36 Hey, it's July. #PSIC


    I didn't even realize this competition was happening now, but congratulations to Daniel!

    New interview with Daniel - I love that they asked about his PChan impression

    http://web.icenetwork.com/news/2015/07/20/137529082

    And a nice interview with Alexei Krasozhon at the bottom as well.

    I'm all for ambition, but I think it might behoove the guys to establish a little consistency first. Not just Daniel, but Moris K., Kovtun...who else is going for 3?
