    Penny Coomes & Nicholas Buckland

    This team has won me over. I will support them

    Penny & Nick missed the British Champs this weekend in order to skate at NHK so now they have neither the GPF place or the British title - your heart has to go out to them.

    I am so sad for them. I loved their programs this season and they had such a strong start. I hope these setbacks will give them the determination needed to climb again and be in contention.
    They are a beautiful team who have contributed technical innovation to ice dance.

    Absolutely gutted for the bad luck and health issues Penny and Nick have had to endure this season. Wishing them healing, strength and the ability to turn the page next season.

    I just hope the best for them. It must be so hard for the, to leave evgeny platov because he has really looked after the british teams.
    I hope a new set of eyes will help them improve significantly.

    I just wonder who proposed the move? Their federation.

I continued training and doing what I could in the hope that I would still be able to compete. However about a week before we were scheduled to leave, my doctors in America took the decision out of my hands and said I wasn't medically fit to travel to China and compete at the World Championships. Upon returning to England and working with my medical team here, I am now feeling a lot better and ready to start training again.
    After an abrupt and unexpected finish to our toughest season, we were faced with a difficult proposition. We were asked to move to Detroit to train with Igor Shpilband. As hard as it's been for us all, we are looking forward to a fresh start and gaining a new perspective from Igor and his team. We are excited to start a new chapter of our lives tomorrow.

    We cannot express how hard it has been for us to leave Evgeny, nor put into words what he has done for us both over the past 5 years. We will miss him and our team in New Jersey dearly. Evgeny Platov has become, and always will be part of our family.
    The rules changed a lot this last season. They changed in ways that were unfavorable to couples with a large size difference whose strength was great lifts; in other words, Penny and Nick and Chock and Bates. C&B still managed to make the transition to the new rules. Shpilband is their coach. It is a logical move for Penny and Nick.

    I will miss Platov's choreo. However, Igor seems to be OK with students' using outside choreo. I hope Platov will continue to do Penny & Nick's choreo.

    I don't think it would be possible. Most probably it was their Federation who insisted on them changing the coach and most probably they will be demanded to work with new choreographer to make their game stronger.

    Happy to see they are keeping their free dance. It is so unusual and really showcases Co/Bu's strengths.

    Penny and Nick got to meet the Queen of England.
    They are officially, the classiest ice dance couple.

    Their choreographer was not Platov but Philip Askew and Zhanna Palagina. Philip is Penny's stepfather so I think he will keep working with them.
