    Sarah Feng and TJ Nyman

    Sarah Feng and Tommy-Jo (TJ) Nyman are pairs skaters representing the USA.

    Sarah was born on 2 September 1999 in Los Angeles, California, USA.

    TJ was born on 8 April 2000 in London, Great Britain.

    They teamed up in April 2017. Feng previously competed as an ice dancer. Her partner was Anthony Ponomarenko. Nyman started competing as a single skater and is the 2015 U.S. intermediate champion and 2014 U.S. juvenile champion. After switching to pair skating, his first partner was Sarah Rose. TJ was coached by his mother, Katie Nyman (2000-2016) and Tom Zakrajsek (2016-2017).

    In their second season together and following good results in the 2018/19 JGP circuit (3rd in JGP Czech Republic and 6th in JGP Canada) they qualified for the JGP Final in Vancouver.
    Sarah and TJ are coached by Dalilah Sappenfield, Larry Ibarra and Robin Szolkowy. Their choreographers are John Kerr and Ilona Melnichenko.

    Responding to dorispulaski's call for Sarah and TJ's adoption, I've just created their thread I hope you'll like it and comment a lot.

    This week brings their first big competition. I hope they'll skate without errors in the JGP Final and leave Vancouver satisfied with their performance. Good luck!

    https://www.instagram.com/sarahmfeng/ is the correct link for the account of "our" Sarah Feng.

    You linked to the account of a different person who happens to be named Sarah Feng.

    IMO, it also is worth mentioning Sarah's former ice-dance partner Anthony Ponomarenko.



    More re TJ:

    As a former competitor in the men's discipline, TJ was 2015 U.S. intermediate champion and 2014 U.S. juvenile champion.

    TJ also was the actor in We Get Up videos for the USFS marketing campaign. Videos such as this one:

    Thanks for correcting the Instagram error. The girl whose Instagram I used not only has the same name, but is also a figure skater :ooo
    As for the previous partners, I included TJ's previous partner's name from the USFS Fanzone (I've no idea why I didn't use Sarah's Instagram links from there ). They don't mention Sarah's previous partners and their ISU bio does not contain any info. So thanks a lot for all the updates. I'll include all of them in the OP.

    I've just discovered they indeed mention Sarah's previous partner, but in the Personal notes and not in the Skating notes

    Although they had to WD from the US Nationals, USFSA decided to send them to the Junior Worlds:

    2019 World Junior Championships team - PAIRS

    Sarah Feng/TJ Nyman - 6th place JGPF
    Kate Finster/Balazs Nagy - 2nd at US Junior Pairs Championships
    Laiken Lockley/Keenan Prochnow - US Junior Pairs Champions

    Alternate 1 – Chelsea Liu/Ian Meyh - 11th at US Senior Pairs Championships
    Alternate 2 – Grace Knoop/Blake Eisenach - 5th at US Junior Pairs Championships

    They are 6th with 58.43 points after the SP at the Junior Worlds. Good luck in the FS. Let's see if they manage to terminate in the top 5.
