So sad. Their Claire de Lune LP was one of the most gorgeous pairs programs of the entire 2009/2010 season.

I am going to miss them. Especially that gorgeous Claire de Lune LP, it's one of my favorite pair programs ever.

That's a bummer. Perhaps my favorite US pairs team.

I realize that 4 more years wasn't in the cards, but I was hoping that they'd stick around for another year or two to hopefully go to worlds again. I think they had a lot to offer and were still improving, although hampered by injuries.

I wish them well. They will be missed.

Good luck in future to both of them!

It is sad for me to see them leave competition without ever having reached their potential. They could've been the top US team from '07 - '10 IMO.

Anyway, I will miss them

They have been my favorite US pair since Babilonia and Gardner.

I hope they have great success in the next phase of their lives.

I was so excited for them when they won US Nats - unforunately injuries kept them from achieving their full potenial. Ben Okolski is IMO the best male partner the US has seen in years...I will miss them.
