U.S. pairs skaters, Nica Digerness and Mark Sadusky have returned to the WASA rink in Colorado, to be coached by the Mishketunok, Meekins, O'Shea coaching team. Nica & Mark were formerly trained by Dalilah Sappenfield and Larry Ibarra at the nearby Monument, CO rink.

I am happy for Nica & Mark! I wish them luck and success! ✨


🤔 Hmm, I also notice that Gabby Izzo is there, too. And maybe her partner, Luc Maierhofer. Maybe they will train in the U.S. and rep Austria? Or, maybe they are just at WASA for the summer? I wonder.

@cohkaix mentioned this in the BC/YK Section Super Series thread. The Chinese Taipei Skating Union posted stories promoting Tasha Lai/Mickey Becker-Pos (Canada, reigning Novice Ice Dance bronze medalists) skating at the competition. It looks like they may be switching there. I've attached screenshots of the stories.
