Zhang bartholomay dating
It's a whole new world when it comes to the big tricks.Nobody skated bigger or better in the short program than Marissa Castelli and partner Simon Shnapir.By Alice Cook, She's Game Sports The spilt triple twists were sky high.The throws were huge, and the side-by-side jumps impressive.The defending United States pairs champions owned the ice the second they stepped on it.Skating to Santana's "Black Magic Woman," they were sexy, smooth, and spell binding.
I had to laugh when Castelli and Shnaper talked about their relationship in the post-skate news conference.
"Sometimes we thought we were going to give up on each other and we just looked at each other, took some time off and just came back together and said, “we’re not done, we’re not ready, we have more potential.” It’s just time and patience," said Shnapir.
The team of Felicia Zhang and Nathan Bartholomay find themselves in second place going into the long program.
Coach Jim Peterson — so detail-obsessed he often fusses over Zhang's black hair, even off-ice — had a feeling the first time he saw them that this was the coveted perfect match. Too close in height proximity can lead to serious injury, and talented pairs have split because the female underwent a growth spurt.
Bartholomay and Zhang, who train under Peterson at the Ellenton Ice and Sports Complex, are representing the U. The 24-year-old Bartholomay is listed at 5-foot-9, exactly 8 inches taller than the 20-year-old Zhang.
