    You might find this page useful for finding out more info:

    http://www.rinkresults.com/country?country=MEX

    Click the "skaters" button, and you will find a list of skaters that have competed in the last 12 months (if you want earlier skaters as well, the full list is on this page. Mexico is at the bottom of the first column, and the top of the second column). Clicking the name takes you to the skater's competitive history, from where you can click on individual scores to take you to protocols and videos!

    Last season, there was a discussion about Andrea Montesinos in the Junior Worlds Ladies SP thread. And we didn't manage to work out an answer. So, I will bring it up again here.

    Is Andrea related to the Cantú sisters, Ana Cecilia (ISU Bio; Rink Results Bio; Wikipedia) and Michele (ISU Bio; Rink Results Bio; Wikipedia), who competed for Mexico in the noughties?

    They are obviously not sisters, because of the different position of Cantú (for those unfamiliar with Spanish surnames, the order is father's surname followed by mother's surname).

    Andrea MONTESINOS (Dad) CANTÚ (Mum)

    Ana Cecilia CANTÚ (Dad) FÉLIX (Mum)

    So, could Andrea be a cousin of the sisters? Or a niece?

    And before somebody suggests it, Andrea definitely isn't a daughter. Ana was competing in Junior Ladies at the Pokal der Blauen Schwerter the week Andrea was born. And Michele was competing in Novice Ladies at the Triglav Trophy 6 months later.

    Yes, thank you for making the thread.

    I was wondering earlier if there was one, and loo and behold: Chapis was kind enough to fulfil my wish
    I love how more and more countries that you don't usually associate with ice are fielding good competitors.

    In her LP, Andrea Montsesinos Cantu skated to the same music as Laurine Lecavalier did in her SP last season. I love that piece, so was glad to hear it again.

    I really liked Donovan Carrillo's SP as well:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYcVnMvLxWM
    Hope to see it skated cleanly next time.

    About the Cantú sisters and Andrea, I thought the same last season, they are from the same city, I stalked their personal facebook and I do not think they are related, but I am not 100% sure .

    There is also Sofia Del Rio, here is the link to her ISU bio:

    http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00054658.htm

    I saw her SP at the Philly International Summer Comp a few weeks ago. It was memorable to me, because she came out in black lipstick, a black unitard and a really tight ponytail, and I said to myself, she looks just like Alexa Scimeca in her SP a couple years, ago, this better be Metallica, and it was!

    Of course I also saw both of Donovan's programs there (thanks to @Stitch Monkey for telling me to pay attention to him) and he just captures the audience. I love performers, and he is one

    Don't forget that Mexico sometimes fields a synchro team, Merging Edge.

    They were at 2016 Worlds:
    SP
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKHICiHgA5s
    FS
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Op_79yoVTg

    They were coached by Ana Cecelia Cantu Felix.

    Last fall, I was at ACI. I remember there was a Mexican skater there. He doesn't have all his triples but he was a very fun skater to watch with some great spin positions.

    Megumi TSUTSUMI / Devin DICKEY

    thank you, I did not know them. I just could find this short videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KaxxxtAAWIA
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKh9kspRwb4

    Someone know what happened with the Maekawa siblings? , I really liked them, they were training with Marina. I remembered them because of C/L chosing La vita e bella https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StpRSJwqkW0

    Natalia Paulin just competed in Riga https://youtu.be/LjcbD8HyLOI?t=17 score 32.61, place 29. she is lovely. 15 yo. It seems that she is from San Pedro city, Nuevo León, Méx, same like Andrea and the Cantú sisters, and she trains mostly in that city. Michelle Cantú is one of her coaches, she was sitting with her in the K&C .

    Natalia´s dress is beautiful , after watch some dresses in the latin short dances, I wish some girls cough Ekaterina B. , Christina C., Eteri´s daugther cough would have a dress like Natalia´s

    I'm very excited for Megumi and Devin!! (and I say that as a fan in addition to an acquaintance) I really liked their programs at JGP Croatia, and think that they should have placed higher. But as the omniscient Ted says, they're a new team and it will come with experience

    Megumi sustained an injury during practice. They went to Croatia while injured.

    That was my first impulse, but then I realized they're from Monterrey. The Cantú last name is quite common there, you lift a stone and find 3 of them

    Andrea improved her season best (44.26), but not enough to move to the second stage

    Andrea, keeps improving, I'm sure we'll see her in competition next season too

    PS: Donovan goes first in the FS tomorrow
