Yeah i don't think there'd be anything wrong with her taking up another country...

Btw as sylvia posted in the other topic, Scimeca and Dmitrov split. Wonder who scimeca will skate with.... She's short enough for Meekins :O

ITA. Alexa is a good kid.

Meekins???? I'm sorry Meekins needs to realize he has been out way to long! He couldn't even skate with a pint size girl and struggled when he was with Jessica. I would think if he was serious of a come back he would have found someone by now. But hey, more power to him if he can find a small girl or boy ;) :rofl:


Drew recently updated his Partner Search profile, I would think that means he is still looking for a partner.

He doesn't appear to be all that strong so his options may be limited.

I'm not going to speculate on his current partnership- but he is still relatively new to pairs (this is his third season, and his first season with Gifford was kind of a fluke), he's definitely building up his strength. And he is really tall, so if he wants to stay in pairs, he has a lot more options than some of the shorter men.

Anyone know why Aleca S is off IPS?

sadly I think Andrews/le Duc won't last, Cassie is a beautiful skater but her jumps have not progressed for a long time now and Tim has all triples including 3A, I don't think Cassie has a consistent 2A

just thought I'd point out how irrelevant the 3A is to pairs, along with the triple-triple combo being rarely relevant that people still bring up. Jumping is just one part of a program; it's important, but not everything.

I agree that 3A and 3/3 are rarely relevant to pairs, but 2A and triples are jumps used by the winning teams. I am not a fan of the sport being so driven by jump scores but unfortunately it seems that is the direction the sport has taken with the current judging system, I also agree that they are only one part of the program, but sadly if two skaters are not able to perform to the same level then they tend to split.

Girls who have the perfect frame for high-level IJS lifts have an awful frame for consistently landing solo triples, and vice versa. It's one of the many paradoxes in the current pairs environment that's contributing to short-term teams.

I don't know very much about pairs, so I am interested to know why you think this. I have always been led to believe that small girls make better jumpers.

Just when I was getting to like Cain/Reagan they split. :(

He is tall enough for Caitlin Y? I didn't go to check out the profile, yet. He and Ashley seemed to be quite similar in height.

His IN profile lists him as 6-1 and Ashley as 5-5. Tall for a lady skater. Maybe, that is why he looked short, I suppose ...

Caitlin is listed as 5-2
