Pairs coaching news (international)

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

Pairs coaching news (international)

Post by Elizabeth » Fri Jan 11, 2019 11:43 am

From the translation of an announcement in German:

Robin Szolkowy, 5-time World champion, announced that he will move to the U.S. this spring to develop a pairs training center in Irvine, CA, along with the Meno/Sand group.

Szolkowy made his decision following talks with USFSA, during which the U.S. federation expressed the desire for growth of the pairs discipline in the U.S. Szolkowy hopes to work with both U.S. & international teams and foresees possible long-term residence in the USA.

The Kneirims from the US who were training in Germany and the US with Robin's former partner, Aliona Savchenko, have recently been training with Meno & Sand in California. Robin has been working in Russia.
