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").
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:
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. Mmmmm. Interesting... :think:
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.
So will they skate for another country or will they look for new partners. I mean they could skate for Belarus
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?
Denney and Frazier are either both retiring or have split per his social media post.
Brandon is continuing; Haven is unsure
