    That's a classy statement from Emily. She seems to be at a crossroad in what she wants to do I wish her the best.

    Emily is such a superb skater, I wish there was some male partner to match her up with here in the US. I wish her luck on whichever path she chooses, however!

    I really hate reading this news and hope Emily finds a partner. Someone with her talent and beautiful lines should be skating. I still can't believe Evan dumped her. I always thought one day they would be on the world podium. But wherever she ends up, I hope she's happy.

    This. Emily has always been one of my favorite skaters of any discipline. Part of the reason for this is how classy she is.

    I wish them both the best.

    Wow, that is really thoughtful and mature. I'm sorry the partnership ended, but it seems to have been a very considered decision that was done with everyone's best interests taken into account.

    I hope she's able to find a way to stay in skating that fulfills her and is fun, whether it's coaching or competing. That was a very mature, classy post and I wish her and Todd all the best in the future.

    Sorry to see she is without a partner again, and not sure if she wants to find another one (from the sound of it). I wish her the best in whatever she decides to do next.

    She could move into writing like Jenny Kirk. Very articulate. I enjoyed her skating too and hope she can find another partner. But she obviously realises there are other opportunities too and I am sure will be successful in whatever she decides to pursue.

    I had been waiting anxiously for any info on them for the upcoming season. This was not the info I wanted to hear:wuzrobbed

    I wish her the very best in anything she chooses to do. Although I really hope she finds a talented new partner. She has soo much talent & needs to be competing.

    I was such a fan of her & Evan. He was a fool. Anyways...

    Heres hoping for a new partner soon!! :cheer:

    That OD is so spectacular. Thanks for posting.

    Best wishes to Emily. What a blessing that she had the opportunity to experience the Olympics in 2010. I hope she finds happiness in whatever her future holds.

    She's so lovely and well-spoken.

    Very kind of her to let the fans know about what is going on.

    I really hope that she can find a competitive partner and failing that finally earn some decent money doing shows and hopefully coaching the next generation of ice dancers further down the line.

    All the best, Emily!

    Who on earth is the Eurosport French female commentator & did she ever wake up on the wrong side of the bed...I'd love to see Emily skating with a new partner, but if that's not going to happen this season, am sure she can figure something out.

    I wonder what she means by 'the circumstances under which they were training'?
    Not enough ice time?
    Anyways, I'm not very familiar with her, but I wish her the best in whatever she decides to do. I wonder if Todd Gilles is looking for another partner.

    What were the circumstances under which they were training that were not satisfactory?

    Perhaps this is a politically correct way of saying that it just wasn't working out. Wishing Emily and Todd all the best in their future endeavors!

    I think it would be beautiful drama if Todd Gilles wet to Canada and teamed up with Vanessa crone

    I was thinking finances perhaps? She did mention that, and having THREE skaters in one family can't be cheap. . . with a 6th place at last year's Nats, Emily and Todd wouldn't get much funding, if any.
