And now for something different - a new partnership!

Carolina Moscheni and Francesco Fioretti

Carolina announced it in a Facebook post about 20 minutes ago. (I'll add the link when and if she changes the privacy settings to "Public").

I didn't know Jasmine and Francesco had split :shocked:

Hope that this new partnership will flourish! :)

Yes, that's why Roy/Pietrantonio are the 2nd Italian team at Worlds, instead of Tessari/Fioretti.

Just letting you know that the Junior Ice Dance Bronze Medallists from December's British Championships have split. Lucy Hancock is on Ice Partner Search, while Billy Wilson French is "pursuing other interests" (Lucy's words).

Here's what Lucy put up last night on her new-look website:

https://www.lucyhancock.co.uk/post/a-new-chapter-of-my-life

I wish them both all the best for the future.

EDIT: I was just looking through the full list on Ice Partner Search and saw that Billy is on there too. :confused: Mmmmm. Interesting... :think:​

Well, it's now been announced that one of them has found a new partner:

Lucy Hancock / Ilja Marquardt

I notice that although she says they will be training in Berlin, she doesn't actually mention which country they will be representing. So, that will be interesting to find out.

There’s been a lot of activity in UK this season with ice dancers doing try outs at home and abroad with many skaters coning to UK for try outs too. Jayin Panasar, Emily Phillips, Phebe Bekker, Theodore Alexander, Billy Wilson French and Lucy Hancock, all partner searching. Hearing rumours that the first and last in that list are now with partners.

Good luck to the others in their continued quest for partners.

Dear staffers, since you saw it fit to merge the splits thread with my retirements thread, can you please edit the retired and split skaters into the opening post so that people who want to find the data do not have to browse through the many pages? Thanks. I have tried to regularly update my retirements OP, but now I have no idea where in this thread my OP got stuck.

Surimi, your post was edited into the OP of this thread, and that post now belongs to you, so that you can continue to edit it. Thank you for your work on compiling retirements!

I hope they get to go. The Corona Virus is alive and well sadly in Italy and spreading it appears.

Roy/Pietrantonio are Canadian and still train there ;) They begun to skate for Italy only this season, he highly probably has italian ancestors.

Looks like Kostiukovich/Ialin have split. Kostiukovich seems to have announced it in an instagram post (which has since been deleted). Source

So will they skate for another country or will they look for new partners. I mean they could skate for Belarus

Their reaction is unknown yet.
Story is not that simple :( Federation banned skaters and their parents just to show their power. It's not a good signal to other skaters.

I wonder about the Ukrainian federation since a long time. Governance problem? Another Didier Gailhaguet there? With all the top Ukrainian skaters changing to USA or Israel or other countries... That's not only because of economical reasons I assume?

Yes, you are right.
In this case, coach of the pair Kateryna Dzitsiuk and Ivan Pavlov needed accreditation in Tallinn, but federation decided not to give it. And this was a starting point of conflict.

Denney and Frazier are either both retiring or have split per his social media post.

That's a pity, they were my favorite US pair and I really liked their programs in the last two seasons. Good luck to them!

Frazier New Partner?

okay, so this begs the question. Is Alexa Knerim his new partner. It makes sense.

I thought they had a good chance of getting to the Olympics :(
Still, best of luck to them!

I guess we know who Alexa's new partner is going to be (she says, speculating).
