No, D/J? UGH. I liked them. Last year, I remember thinking about how much potential they had. :(

What happened to Brezina? Is he out for long?

D/J split already? Why can't our US Pairs stay together?

I don't know exactly, something about veins in his groin?
Anyway he had surgery and should be back on ice at the end of this week. He has to take it slowly though; in 2 weeks he is allowed to jump again.

There's also a Oct. 19th Czech article link posted in the Brezina thread: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showpost.php?p=2917216&postcount=28

Maybe it's time to start up an "injured skater list" again...

ETA: Dobbs/Jacobsen's rumored split was first mentioned in the Pairs Splits Season 2010/2011 thread (http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=75395&page=2) in GSD. Their names have been removed from USFS' Team C envelope, so it's official now.

I think it's because pairs isn't our strongest discipline and every pairs skater wants to be the one to change that.

I'm so sorry that Steenberg is out for the season, but he's right, mono can take months and months to get over. I hope he's able to do really well in school this year and come back strong next season.

With respect to Brezina, I've been wondering if the translated "varicose veins" might really have been an abdominal aneurysm?

I doubt if it was an abdominal aneurysm, it would have involved the aorta, and that's not something that you get over in two weeks. However, what concerns me is that sometimes, when someone has some abnormalities that involve veins,etc., it may be indicative of other arterial/venous malformations elsewhere.

I wonder if Dobbs' success at Four Continents has made her focus more on her singles skating.

It does seem that many US Pairs have skaters that also compete in singles. Is that common outside North America (haven't there been a few Canadian ladies who do both on the senior level as well)?

In Russia it is not common. Once you switch to pairs, you compete only in pairs.

From the icenetwork article...
"He decided a couple of weeks ago that he wanted to take a break from competitive skating, which is kind of disappointing and sad for me," she said. "I really enjoyed skating with him. I already miss pairs and it's only been three weeks. After nationals I want to see what I can do and if the opportunity presents itself I want to try it again."

Makes it sound like it was his decision...not hers?

I hope Brezina will recover quickly. I was really looking forward to seeing how he progressed this season.

And I'm sorry that Steenburg will be out, but he sounds like he is making the most of it by using his extra time for studies and dance.
