Great interview! You can hear the disappointment in their voices in not being able to compete at 4CCs or Worlds despite placing second at Nationals. BUT I sense a great deal of energy and motivation to moving forward and improving. I am a big fan!
Great article on Marissa and Mervin. Keep hoping that THIS is the year when their partnership really gels. I've always enjoyed them. That concussion was really a tough break. And keep working on those darn side by side jumps guys! :handw:
Is not it easier for Marissa to get Canadian citizenship?
Mervin and Marissa are at Mid-Atlantics again this year.
Their SP score today: 59.33
Caitlin Fields/Ernie Utah Stevens 55.58
Allison Timlen/Justin Highgate-Brutman 44.28
Right before competing, Mervin [ETA: or on second thought, maybe I originally misremembered and it was Ernie??] sprayed something on his hands.
Is the purpose to keep his hands dry??
Their score is ok but I am stymied as to why these two can't break into the top 10. Is Mervin still struggling with his jumps?
I got really excited when I saw this and thought it sounds almost too good to be true...Just saw that 6 hours ago Mervin tweeted that he is now an American citizen. At first I thought they were kidding around, but seems like it's for real! Congratulations to Mervin.
