Mari-Doris Vartmann (born 25 December 1988 in Neuss, Germany) is a German pair skater. With partner Aaron Van Cleave, she is a two-time (2011–2012) German national silver medalist, the 2011 NRW Trophy champion, and 2010 Warsaw Cup champion. With former partner Florian Just, she is a three-time German national medalist.

Career[edit]

Vartmann started skating at the age of five in her home town of Neuss. Four years later she changed to Düsseldorfer, the club she currently represents. In January 2004, she turned to pair skating and was partnered with Florian Just.[1] They trained in Dortmund and Berlin.[2] The pair split up in 2009, just after the NRW Trophy.

In 2010, Vartmann teamed up with Canadian-American Aaron Van Cleave to compete for Germany.[3] Their coach is Knut Schubert. The pair made their international debut at the 2010 Warsaw Cup where they won the gold medal. Their first major international event was the 2012 European Championships. On 26 January, during the morning practice before the long programs, Vartmann collided with Daniel Wende while they were attempting to avoid a French couple.[4] Vartmann and Van Cleave finished 5th at the event.

Vartmann and Van Cleave withdrew from the 2012 Nebelhorn Trophy following the short program – Vartmann picked into her right foot when she fell on a throw triple loop during the short and was unable to put on her skate the next day due to swelling.[5] They withdrew from the 2012 Coupe de Nice and their first assigned Grand Prix event, the 2012 Cup of Russia, after Van Cleave sustained a broken cheekbone while catching Vartmann on a triple twist.[6] They later withdrew from their second GP, the 2012 NHK Trophy.[7]

Personal life[edit]

Vartmann is of Japanese and German descent.[2]
