After our previous partners decided to pursue their educations, we relocated to Novi, MI to train with the World and Olympic coach Igor Shpilband with the ultimate goal to make either 2018 or 2022 Olympics.
With similar aspirations and passion for the sport, our partnership has taken flight in a short amount of time. Since we are both incredibly motivated and goal-oriented, we are making leaps forward every year and hope to continue it for the whole length of our career together.
In 2014-2015 season, after only 9 months as a team, we won our first Sectionals Gold and Nationals Bronze medals and competed on the Junior Grand Prix circuit. In the 2015-2016 season, we earned the Bronze medal at Junior Grand Prix in Spain and 4th place at World Junior Championships in Hungary. We also repeated as U.S. National Championships Bronze medalists and Midwestern Sectional Champions.
In 2016-2017 season, we moved up to the highest Senior level and were very excited to represent the U.S. in two ISU Grand Prix events: Skate America in Chicago and Rostelecom in Moscow. We also competed at two Challenger series: Nebelhorn in Oberstorf and Tallinn Trophy in Tallinn placing 4th and 3rd respectively achieving our season's bests. The season culminated with the Pewter medal at the 2017 U.S. National Championships.
This 2017-2018 season we are preparing to compete at ISU Grand Prix events in China and France as well as Challenger series competitions before facing the deep ice dance field at the 2018 U.S. National Championships in Elliana's home town San Jose, CA where the 2018 Olympic games' U.S. team will be announced.
Competing at the elite Senior level requires even harder training and continuously increases our current expenses. Having achieved the highest division in the U.S. and being ranked among 24 best teams in the World, we would very much appreciate your generous support to help us realize our Olympic dreams and hope you will consider this chance to help our team on its journey.
Big Thanks to our Future Sponsors
