    The vast majority of skaters just stop competing without making any formal announcements.

    I guess that is because they want to keep their options open.

    And unless I was a massively huge star, it would feel somehow silly to officially announce that I wasn't skating competitively any more.

    I like Otar's skating. Too bad if he is retiring - is he coming back to the US or is he going back home, I wonder. I wish him the best in whatever he does next.

    What's happening with John? What about Melissa Bulanhagui?

    If the retirement rumour is indeed true, I imagine he's going to stay in the US. He's Sinead Kerr's boyfriend, isn't he?

    I remember reading about John having had some business success in the past so I would imagine he's going to continue with that (anybody knows more details?).

    Melissa Bulanghui plans to compete next season, from what I know. And a lot of us are hoping for a Skate America open spot for her, or at least another Senior B.

    New (I think) Junior British pair: Shelley Thomson & Rhys Brown, entered at Junior level for Sheffield IJS (performance squad monitoring event). Also Joseph Buckland (previous JGP competitor with Danielle Bennett) is competing with Olivia Smart at the same event (dance). Remains to be seen whether either will be selected for JGP competitions.

    That needs to be updated.

    Kaela Pflumm and Matteo Guarise have split recently (before they've even competed once ;P) and Matteo Guarise is reported to be having a tryout with Caitlin Yankowskas.

    After the end of last season. He retired, she's going to focus on single skating.

    Nothing we know about.

    i'm guessing that Mellisa Bulanhagui got Finlandia. This should probably go in a different thread but has anyone heard anything about Kristine Musademba, Kristiene Gong, Ellie Kawamura, and Amanda Dobbs?

    I think Musademba was injured but that was a long time ago. I remember a post about Gong quitting which is very said, but I'd like a confirmation on this one. According to her twitter, Kawamura is still skating, but is there any news? Same thing with Amanda Dobbs, any news about her recovery and singles/pairs? I hope either Kawamura or Dobbs get a Finlandia spot too!

    Crushed about Musademba. She was so promising just two seasons ago... :fragile:
