She was released by Great Britain in Jan 2016 and obtained Spanish citizenship in July 2017.

They are currently coached by Marie-France Dubreuil, Patrice Lauzon, Romain Haguenauer and Pascal Denis, in Montréal, Canada.

:cheer: Thanks for the new thread! I think Sara and Adri used to have a fan thread, but since they are now both with new partners, it's time for new threads.

Is it just me or has Olivia noticeably improved? Anyway, I find their SD very interesting and I wish them all the best.

Yes. Sadly. Too much samey samey-ness, especially in FDs, in that shop, IMO.

I just saw their SD for the first time and I really love it. These two already have a lot of personality and connection together on the ice, it's going to be interesting to see what they can do going forward!

Second place :sad21:. But their FD is beautiful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6j6GN12j9w&t=3s. I guess they were very nervous.
SD https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEZhvU2FdjI&t=30s no sound.

FD is beautiful, but Sara & Kiril deserved to win. It's really to sad that Spain, due to Sara & Adria split, has lost second spot at Euros. I also hope Sara & Kiril will get back the second spot, so whichever team win next season, both will have a chance to compete in ISU championships.

Yay, they absolutely deserve it! Their score at Bavarian Open was the highest by a Spanish ice dance team ever, it would have been madness to not send them.

HieloEspanol said that when he told Adri he started to cry - I get the impression from a lot of people there has been a big perception that the federation were supporting H/K much more, so it's wonderful to see that Olivia & Adri are getting this opportunity.

Awwww . I know that the decision is controversial, but if USA and Japan make controversial decisions, why not Spain? :p. I agree that the score of Bavarian was really good, considering that there is not spanish judges at that competition. Unfortunately, with all this + the olympic spot dispute they probably will be very nervous at the competition (worlds) :(

Marie-France, Patrice and Romain will have a big group at Worlds this year. Tessa and Scott, Gabby and Guillaume, Madison and Zach, Laurence and Nikolaj, Mari-Jade and Romain and now Olivia and Adria. Six teams, which means lots of MF in the kiss and cry, so everybody wins ;) . It's unfortunate that the decision involved some controversy, but I'm happy for S/D and I think they are probably the best choice.
