IMO the were way too many breakups! If the reason is because the skaters didn't get along it's fine, but I have the feeling that sometimes they did not look at the bigger picture. Just one example : Neil Brown & Maureen Ibanez (who won jr Nats in 2008 and finished 11th at Jr Worlds) looked very promising but since Maureen was too old to skate as a junior anymore, Neil searched for a younger partner. For what? Two partners in 3 years and he finished 10th with G.Bott at Jr Worlds in 2010 which is only 1 spot higher than his result in 2008!
