Jonathan Franciscovich Guerreiro (Russian: Джонатан Францискович Гурейро;[1] born 3 April 1991) is an Australian-Russian ice dancer who represents Russia and currently competes with Tiffany Zahorski. With Zahorski, he is the 2018 NHK Trophy silver medalist and the 2018 Skate America bronze medalist. He is also a two-time World Junior medalist, having won bronze in 2009 with Ekaterina Riazanova and silver in 2011 with Ekaterina Pushkash.

Personal life[edit]

Guerreiro was born on 3 April 1991 in Sydney, Australia,[2] to Svetlana Liapina, a former ice dancer for the Soviet Union, and Francisco Guerreiro from Portugal.[3] He grew up in Australia before moving to Moscow with his family in 2005.[4] He holds dual Russian-Australian citizenship.[4]

Early career[edit]

After early partnerships with Australians Kiah Pilz and Rachael Reading, Guerreiro competed on the Russian regional level with Daria Panfilova.[4] He teamed up with Ekaterina Riazanova in the summer of 2006.[4][5] They competed together for three seasons and won the bronze medal at the 2009 World Junior Championships. They were coached by Elena Kustarova and Svetlana Alexeeva at Blue Bird FSC in Moscow.[6] Shortly after the 2009 Junior Worlds, Riazanova ended the partnership to skate with Ilia Tkachenko.[3]

Partnership with Pushkash[edit]

Junior career[edit]

Coaches Irina Zhuk and Alexander Svinin arranged a tryout with Ekaterina Pushkash and they teamed up in May 2009.[3] They finished fifth at the 2009–10 Junior Grand Prix Final and won the bronze medal at the 2010 Russian Junior Championships. At the end of the season, they switched coaches to Natalia Linichuk and Gennadi Karponossov, which required them to move to Aston, Pennsylvania in the United States.[3]

During the 2010–11 season, they finished fourth at the JGP Final. At the 2011 Russian Junior Championships, they won the silver medal and were assigned to the World Junior Championships where they won silver.

Senior career[edit]

Pushkash and Guerreiro moved up to the senior level for the 2011–12 season. Guerreiro fractured his left foot in training in June 2011, causing them to miss a few weeks of training.[7] They competed at two Grand Prix events, 2011 Skate Canada and 2011 Cup of Russia. At the end of the season, they changed coaches to Nikolai Morozov in Moscow.[2]

Prior to the 2013–14 season, Pushkash and Guerreiro began training with Anjelika Krylova and Pasquale Camerlengo in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. They ended their partnership at the end of the season.

Partnership with Zahorski[edit]

2014–15 season[edit]

In 2014, Guerreiro formed a partnership with French ice dancer Tiffany Zahorski, coached by Alexander Zhulin.[8] In July 2014, the Russian Federation asked the French Skating Federation (FFSG) to release her to skate for Russia.[8] They placed fifth at the 2015 Russian Championships.

2015–16 season[edit]

The FFSG released Zahorski in October 2015, three years and nine months after her last competition for France, allowing Zahorski/Guerreiro to appear for Russia internationally.[9] The two made their international debut at the 2015 Santa Claus Cup, winning the gold medal. They finished fifth at the 2016 Russian Championships.

2016–17 season[edit]

In the 2016–17 season, Zahorski/Guerreiro won the bronze medal at the 2016 CS Ondrej Nepela Memorial after placing third in both segments and earning a new personal best total score of 165.64 points. They received another bronze medal in their next event, the 2016 CS Finlandia Trophy. They then made their Grand Prix series debut at the 2016 Rostelecom Cup where they placed fifth. A few weeks later they won their third CS medal of the season, the silver at the 2016 CS Warsaw Cup with a personal best score of 173.02 points.

For the third consecutive year, they finished fifth at the Russian Championships. Zahorski competed in the free dance after developing a fever.[10]

In mid-May 2017 Zahorski/Guerreiro changed coaches to Elena Kustarova & Svetlana Alexeeva [11]

2017–18 season: Pyeongchang Olympics[edit]

Zahorski/Guerreiro started their season by winning the silver medal at the 2017 CS Minsk-Arena Ice Star. Competing on the Grand Prix series, they placed fourth at the 2017 Cup of China and sixth at the 2017 Skate America.

In December 2017 they won the bronze medal at the 2018 Russian Championships. A month later they placed sixth at the 2018 European Championships after placing eighth in the short dance and sixth in the free dance.

it was announced by the Russian Figure Skating Federation on January 23, 2018 that Ivan Bukin wasn't invited to the 2018 Olympics.[12] Because of this Zahorski/Guerreiro were sent instead. Zahorski/Guerreiro placed thirteeth at the 2018 Winter Olympics. Later they placed eighth at the 2018 World Championships with a personal best score of 180.42 points.

2018–19 season[edit]

Zahorski suffered from a knee injury over the summer that limited the duo's training time leading up to the new season.[13] Zahorski/Guerreiro started their season at the 2018 Skate America. They ranked third in the rhythm dance and fourth in the free dance, placing third overall. The bronze medal was their first Grand Prix medal. Guerreiro said: "We haven’t had this many free dance run-throughs under our belts, so we just kind of prayed and hoped for the best. Overall, it’s a good start."[14] In early November Zahorski/Guerreiro competed at their second Grand Prix event of the season, the 2018 NHK Trophy, where they won the silver medal with a personal best score of 183.05 points. With one GP silver medal and one bronze medal they qualified for the 2018–19 Grand Prix Final where they finished 5th.
