    Are they skating for France, Germany or Ukraine?

    Savchenko has skated with Szolkowy so long I really can't imagine her with anyone else.

    'I want to win the gold medal at the 2018 Olympics. And I'm going to do it with Bruno. I'm very glad to have a chance to skate with such a partner.

    Massot became only the 15th in the world championship? It means nothing. Robin Szolkowy was also only the 10th, and I was Junior World Champion when our couple was formed.

    Why I did not choosen German skater? There're no strong skaters in Germany" - said Savchenko.

    They haven't decided yet. Germany or France.

    France is the more powerful federation, but I hope they skate for Germany instead. The last thing they need is Didier Gailhaguet interfering with their training like he did with Papadakis/Cizeron, etc.

    Why retire as World Champion when you can made a total foul of yourself?

    Amazing that she found someone so quickly. I suppose male pairs skaters are much easier to come by in Europe than in North America?

    Well, I'm sure many, many male pairs skaters are willing to skate with someone as talented and famous as 5-time world champion and 2-time Olympic medalist Aliona Savchenko. Other less-decorated female pairs skaters would probably have a much more difficult time finding someone so quickly.

    I wonder if they will ever win anything big. Probably not

    V/T want to go to 2018 Olympics too, don't they?

    That really kind of bothers me. That she'd just dump Germany like that.

    I totally don't get it. There is no better moment to stop her career than now. Anyway, good luck to her and congrats France! I wonder what Morgan&Cipres are thinking. So can Aliona become French just like that, when she changed nationality once before? (Doesn't matter for Worlds, but Olympics is another issue)

    Is a thing, for someone to have to take a year off, when they switch nationalities? I think I heard it somewhere, but can't be sure
