Pairs partnerships seem to be more stable than ice dance partnerships (except in the USA, where they seem to split almost every other year). Sometimes the new pair is more successful than the previous pairs. Ina & Dungjen split, and Stiegler-Zimmerman split. Ina & Zimmerman had more success than either of the other teams (although I&D were fairly successful, winning US titles more than once) Rodnina-Ulanov split, after winning an OGM and 4 world titles. Rodnina & her next partner Zaitsev won 2 OGMs and 6 more world titles. Berezhnaya-Shliakov split and Petrova-Sikharulidze split. Berezhnaya-Sikharulidze had a lot more success (1 OGM, 2 world titles, 1 Oly silver) than the other two pairs. Petrova won a world title with her new partner Tikhanov. Volosozhar split from Morozov and had much greater success with Trankov Savchenko split from Morozov and had much greater success with Szolkowy Jamie Sale split from Jason (last name?) and had much greater success with next partner Pelletier (she had a long gap in between the two pairings however) Jeni Meno & Scott Wendland split, and Kuchiki & Sand split. Meno & Sand won a world silver and multiple US championships. Yuko Kavaguchi had at least 2 partners before she teamed up with Smirnov and had much bigger success. Some exceptions: After splitting from Mishkutenok, Artur Dmitriev won an OGM with Kazakova, but did not win a world title. Obertas & Sokolov split, after finishing 5th at worlds. Obertas & Slavnov did not do well at worlds (although they did win a silver at Europeans) and eventually split. Ulanov did not win a world title with his next partner. Mukhartova's career ended after splitting from Trankov Who will be the next 'new' pair to have greater success? May be Maisuradze & his new partner?
