If she's from the South, she'd have a drawl, not a twang. Midwesterners have twangs, we have drawls! :)

Seriously, I hope she finds a great partner who really compliments her style.
:lol: ok, then she had a drawl. Or so I thought. Didn't hear a New England accent (e.g., pronouncing "car" as "caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa") but then again it was a very brief exchange. :)

Ditto. I would think she's trying hard to find someone though. The clock is ticking

Here's a crazy suggestion: is there any room for her with SOI or another show? She would have to get it approved so she'd keep her eligibility, but at least she'd be in front of a crowd, doing the occaisional pairs move.

I love Caitlyn's graceful ballet style and expression. Pair her with the right partner and it could be magic. I agree she was the one that made their last partnership standout. I just hope there is someone out there because I was really looking forward to continuing to be a fan!

A million ditto

Nothing personal but that is crazy. After all, the gal has been without a partner for less than a month. It's too soon to be writing off her partner search and her season for next year.

In the Skater Anagram thread in Trash Can, Vagabond posted that one anagram for Caitlin Yankowskas is:

A couple of others are:

I'm so hoping for a really great partner for her. She was so gorgeous at Worlds and Nationals this year.

There's no actual Caitlin news so shouldn't this thread be in the Trash Can? :shuffle:

I was reading an old IFS magazine (from 2008, I think) and there was a news article how she was going to partner with Yannick Bonheur (after he & Pla broke up), but USFS wouldn't release her. I can't picture them together.

Can we petition France to let Bonheur go?

They tried out together 4 years ago and it went very well, but there were citizenship issues and they would not have been able to compete internationally. Yannick didn't speak much English either, so there was a bit of a language barrier. And if they had trained in the U.S., USFS would have frowned upon (and perhaps prohibited) a U.S. coach teaching someone representing a different country.

Bonheur can't jump though.

I see what you mean, but it's different when the coach and the skater are U.S citizens and have been receiving USFS money. Do you really think that USFS would want Dalilah Sappenfield, Frank Carroll, or any other top U.S. coach training top competitors to compete for other countries in the Olympics? It's simply not in the best interest of USFS to encourage this. It is different when the competitor is a citizen of another country and has not received USFS money (e.g. Patrick Chan, Yu Na Kim). They can train with whatever U.S. coach they like and represent their own country. But for Yankowskas to train with Dalilah and represent France ... I don't think USFS would like that.
