In 2017 she changed countries and since then has been representing Switzerland. She is the 2017 CS Nebelhorn Trophy bronze medalist, 2018 International Halloween Cup champion, 2017 Slovenia Open champion, and a three-time Swiss national champion (2018, 2019, 2020).

Excerpt from the OP
I was impressed by Alexia at Nationals, so she was on my radar, but not in my stable of favorites :laugh: until today. Her SP at Gardena completely blew me away! She has a beautiful delicateness to her skating and her new short program shows that off perfectly, and when the jumps are there, they're great. Artistically, she has something very unique and I will be keeping an eye out for her in the upcoming season! :cheer:

I always thought her surname was perfect for figure skating; Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini is a program-music warhorse. Well performed short program, :agree: let's hope she keeps it up in the free skate. I'm excited to see her free skate music choice

I am noticing Alexia is not listed in the International Selection Pool, nor is she an alternate for the first JGP. What is going on? She recently posted a photo of herself after she passed the tests to compete Sr.

I didn't not see that coming at all. Then again her training partner left USFS to represent Israel. Well I wish her good luck at Nebelhorn!

Interesting development - I guess she has Swiss heritage? I suppose with the deep field in the US, she'll get more opportunities to compete.

She joins quite a few US born ladies who skate for other countries including Amy Lin and Nicole Rajicova. Mirai Nagasu's bf Darian Weiss also skates for Switzerland as an ice dancer (and he's American born).

First Grand Prix for this promising skater! Will look forward to seeing if representing her new country pays off. And hoping she’ll land her quad salchow!!!!

She scored two sbs and in general had some lovely performances. In my opinion she would've deserved some higher pcs but I'm very happy for her. She has the potential on being a top competitor if she continues to perform this good

I know this video is late, but better late than never...

CBC commentary for her Rostelecom Cup LP is at 9:01 (the password is women): https://vimeo.com/299711451 Her SP wasn't broadcast on Canadian television.

That would certainly be the dream, and she certainly showed that she is a force to be reckoned with

I was amazed at how calm Alexia appeared to be in the SP, especially considering she skated last. Beautiful skate! Good luck to her in the long.

Not a skater I've ever paid much attention to, but she had a great showing today! Hope she can keep it up in her FP and podium.

She has an excellent lutz and good jump technique - why is she doing such a simpler jump layout (compared to other top ladies)? would love to see her programs with a competitive TES
