    Will More Dance & Pairs Teams Split? Some Sources Say Yes.

    Not sure where to post this news but apparently there are two new ice dance team formed in Russia:
    Tobias/Tkachenko coached by Zoueva and
    Ryazanova/Gurreiro no coach announced yet.

    Looks like they are returning their former partners and Tobias changing countries again.

    It's unclear which country Tobias will represent but the rumours are that it's not Russia.

    Wow. Tobias/Tkachenko. That makes zero sense.
    There is no one good for Bukin though. Kosigina is the only one I can think of.

    I didn't see that one coming!

    Well, given that Isabella couldn't get Lithuanian citizenship, I had a bad feeling the partnership with Deividas would end. But I didn't see the Riazanova/Tkachenko split coming!

    It'll be interesting to see what countries they end up representing.

    I assume Isabella and Ilya will go for Russia, as it will be easier if only 1 of them has to apply for citizenship. (I can't see them going the other way, using Isabella's American nationality). But, given that one of them has an Italian name and the other a Ukrainian name, there might be other options...

    Kate and Jonathon both have Russian citizenship, and competed for Russia when they were last partners. But there are far too many good Dance couples in Russia now. So, could we see them representing Jonathon's country of birth, Australia?

    Also, any word on what is happening with Kate Push?

    Tobias has Lithuanian citizenship, she received it in December & T/S competed in Sochi. They'd be much more likely to be able to compete internationally for Lithuania over making it out of Russian Nationals & could compete as early as Europeans next year if Tkachenko gets his release from Russia.

    Ah, I forgot that she did get it in the end. Sorry!

    Yeah, Lithuania would make sense then.

    No we still have old faithful B/S. Whoever said that just plain being nice can get you places was genius. Talent and hard work also help

    I wonder what's happening with Stagniunas, if Tobias is with Tkachenko. Retirement? Funny that Tobias just got Lithuanian citizenship and then the partnership with him ended. Maybe Stagniunas can skate with Heekin-Canedy if he's not retiring, although I'm not sure for where.

    There is still Bobrova-Soloviev, Mońko-Khalyavin and Stepanova-Bukin.

    Nah, I can't see Deividas retiring just yet. He's too good!

    Maybe this is the Lithuanian Federation's masterplan. Get Isabella citizenship, and then split her and Deividas so that they could potentially have TWO good Dance partnerships rather than just the one!

    And I like your suggestion of pairing Siobhan with Deividas. I've always had a soft spot for Siobhan (hey, she's got an Irish name, after all!), and I think Deividas is just the sort of person she needs to bring her up the pecking order.

    Tobias/Tkachenko AND Heekin-Canedy/Stagniunas for Lithuania. Mmmm. That sounds interesting...

    Maybe he could skate with Puskas who is now also without partner!

    R/T no longer together... this is the best Easter surprise I received sorry but I really couldn't stand them...
    The Russian dance field is getting everyday more interesting, maybe they don't have a chance to win soon but if we think over a longer time I see more than a couple with a potential gold medal... and I'm pretty sure this is what that old fox named Tarasova also thought
