Cranston pairs figure skater Marissa Castelli has a new partner.

IceNetwork.com reported that she will partner with Mervin Tran, of Canada. The website said the pair would split their training time between Boston and Montreal.

Tran has asked to be released from Skate Canada.

Castelli split with her former partner of eight years, Simon Shnapir, of Sudbury, Massachusetts, last month.

Castelli and Shnapir won Olympic bronze in the team figure skating event at Sochi, but they had a disappointing showing at this year's worlds in Japan.
