    Yes, it's not surprising really. They've been skating for a long time. They are ready for a new adventure. Roman is 27 (birth date 4/83) and has had some injuries. They have done remarkably well and should be very proud of how well they represented Israel. And Israel should be proud of them. I wish them all the best.

    Will Alexandra search for a new partner? She's still young.

    I don't think so. She's been skating since she was very young, I think she wants a life. :)

    Oh, I see.

    I wish both of them the best in their life and good luck on whatever they plan to do in the future!

    So is she partnering with Fedor?

    Bummer, I was hoping they'd skate for another year or 2, but I can understand. I wish them the best. Does Israel have another dance team?

    I've heard rumors, but nothing substantial.

    None of any status, that I'm aware of.

    Last I heard Brooke Frieling and Lionel Rumi were representing Israel..not much high level experience, however. Rumi did some JGP's for France, I think Freiling's highest US finish was 10th or 11th in Novice with Buck Withrow. She trained with Ben Westenberger for a few months and eventually moved to PA where she partnered with Rumi, after working with a Russian dancer. I think they did one Int'l last year.Haven't heard much since then, though. Could turn out to be pretty good with a bunch more experience together.Only saw one video, so it's hard to tell, they were still pretty raw. It took Copley and Saguinas time to gel so who knows.

    wow... after Worlds in Torino i just thought the Zars could be verrry close to the Euros podium.

    No more Verner and Huth (for now)! Tomas will be training at a number of different locations abroad this summer and plans to stay abroad and continue to train there if he likes training overseas :)

    Zaretskis??? Didn't expect that, they kept getting better!
    Anything about Faiella/Scali or Pechalat/Bourzat?

    Yes they did. I believe that they would continue to get better. That is not about why they are retiring. I think they are both just ready to move on. I mean they've been skating together for 15 years, that's a long time. 15 years of sacrifice and hard work. I think they just want to go to school and have a life away from competition. They will be coaching.

    FTR, Roman is 26, until December (I never said I could do arithmetic :duh::lol:).

    Not the best city to live, no?
    My friend ran away from her boyfriend when he moved to Houston and she visited the city...

    Houston has thrown lots of money at the arts and has a first-rate opera company, Houston Grand Opera, and the superb Museum of Fine Arts. It's not all bad.

    Haha houstons not as bad as it's made out to be...although there are some rough parts. Quite a few I know who work in Houston actually live in really nice towns just 30 minutes away. I know of one really high quality town 30 minutes outside of Houston that a lot of pro athletes for Houston live in. It's called The Woodlands. It's one of the most beautiful cities/towns whatever u wanna call it that I've been to. I have family that lives there and they work in houston. i
