Jonathan Guerreiro (Russian: Джонатан Гурейро; born 3 April 1991) is a Russian-Australian ice dancer who currently competes with Tiffany Zahorski. With former partner Ekaterina Pushkash, he is the 2011 World Junior silver medalist and 2011 Russian Junior silver medalist.

With earlier partner Ekaterina Riazanova, he is the 2009 World Junior bronze medalist.

Early career[edit]

After early partnerships with Australians Kiah Pilz and Rachael Reading, Guerreiro competed on the Russian regional level with Daria Panfilova.[1] He teamed up with Ekaterina Riazanova in the summer of 2006.[1][2] 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.[3] Shortly after the 2009 Junior Worlds, Riazanova ended the partnership to skate with Ilia Tkachenko.[4]

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.[4] They finished 5th at the 2009–2010 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.[4]

During the 2010–2011 season, they finished 4th 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 2011–2012 season. Guerreiro fractured his left foot in training in June 2011, causing them to miss a few weeks of training.[5] 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.[6]

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]

In 2014, Guerreiro teamed up with French Ice dancer Tiffany Zahorski, coached by Alexander Zhulin. [7] [8]

Personal life[edit]

Guerreiro's mother is Svetlana Liapina, a former Soviet ice dancer, and his father is from Portugal.[1] Guerreiro was born in Australia and grew up there before moving to Moscow with his family in 2005.[1] He holds dual Russian-Australian citizenship.[1]
