    Mervin Tran

    Good overview of Tran's skating career:

    The photo in the tweet is different from the one shown in the Skate Canada article.

    ETA, lovely observation from the thread for Nebelhorn (where Tran and Takahashi skated their SPs back to back with their respective new partners):

    I think that's very good sportsmanship, not that I ever thought he didn't have any, but wow.

    I'm sure Mervin is happy to be skating for Canada, but boy, do I miss watching Takahashi/Tran--they had something magical going!

    Congratulations to Mervin for keeping his chin up and continuing to pursue his dream. A strong start for them internationally. Hope a strong free skate is to follow and Nebelhorn gives them confidence for the season ahead.

    Globe and Mail article January 9th 2013

    A very nice article about Mervin (and his partner Natasha Purich) appeared today in the Globe and Mail. It is very heartwarming to see him back and still skating in pairs and doing it well.

    Good luck at the Canadian Nationals!

    (It is kind of nice to start seeing articles on figure skating start to pop up again. No doubt it has something to do with the Olympic year, but it is still really really pleasant to see the sport, more broadly, get some attention.)

    Best to Mervin Tran as a partner to Marissa Castelli and as a skater for the U.S.

    He wore Canada's team jacket well too.
