    I wonder if this was the plan all along, or if his training injury was too serious to come back from. Either way, I third the :eek:

    Not surprised at all. She seems like a very fair-weathered partner.

    Wow. Despite their results, I was heartened by seeing the improvements they made this season. :( This is especially sad coming after Jeremy's injury that pushed them out of 4CC.

    WOW!...didn't see that one coming.
    they had a good albeit short career. they didn't improve much this season and in the pairs field, with all the new talent from Russia coming that was bad news.
    I think Cadey wants to continue so I wish her a good and happy new partnership. Good lick to Barret, too!

    From the news release, it sounds like Jeremy will be retiring. I'm actually not surprised; I didn't expect them to continue to the next Olys, but I thought they'd at least go for another year. Remember that Jeremy is quite a bit older than Caydee, is now engaged to Amanda, and it makes sense physically and financially that he'd want to move on to another phase of his life.

    Best of luck to both of them.

    I wonder if Jeremy's injury's a lot worse than they anticipated?

    To train with Delilah? She told everyone that she moved back from Colorado to Florida (where's she's from) because she missed her family so much. That was after she dumped Jeremy the first time...

    Imo, this is another example of how those 9-11 year age gaps that are so are frequent in US pairs these days just don't work long term.

    So much for their "we're in this for the long haul" interviews! I personally thought at nationals that Caydee and Jeremy seemed mismatched. If she is hunting for a new partner she needs someone taller and more muscular. Good luck to her. Poor Jeremy, the timing really sucks for him. Injury, death in the family, now this.

    I'm not surprised. They did not look good this season. There was no fire in their skating and if she grew an inch, she'd be too tall for him.

    Who is a potential partner? It would be interesting if we hear Marley/Brubaker decided to end their fledgling partnership as well. :watch: Although, I understand there's a nice looking French skater skating for Russia that might be free.

    Her sisters Haven's former partner Brandon Frazier just split Mandy. Maybe Haven and Brandon are reteaming? No inside information just a guess...

    I'm actually surprised people are surprised by the split. Jeremy just got engaged and sees his fiancee only on the weekends. That can't work long term, someone was going to have to switch coaches again or he was going to retire.

    I wonder if Amanda and Mark will retire too? Jeremy says he wants to skate in shows, and Caydee wants to compete still. I bet it would be nice for Jeremy to be able to skate shows with Amanda.

    Or conversely, it's right for him. Perhaps the injury and the death in the family (and as Debbie S mentioned, an engagement and his age) make it the right time to move on.

    Good luck to them both!

    Her partner is retiring from competitive skating to coach. What exactly would you have her do?

    Wow, kind of weird. Wonder if Barrett feels like tying the knot with Amanda (and actually living in the same town with her) is a bigger priority and more fun than training? They had a good run as a pairs team.

    Yeah... I'm sure that's the whole story.
