(1): Stefania BERTON / Ondrej HOTAREK (ITA)
Marchei/Hotarek teamed up in spring 2014. Marchei competed in singles until then and was ranked 11th at the Olympic Winter Games in 2014. With his former partner Stefania Berton Hotarek became the first Italian pair skater to win a medal at an ISU Championship (bronze at the 2013 European Championships). Hotarek had moved from the Czech Republic to Italy in 2005 and received Italian citizenship in 2010. He got married to 2014 Ice Dance World Champion Anna Cappellini in summer 2015. Marchei's father is a two-time Olympian for Italy (1980 and 1984), competing in the Marathon event.
