    I think it's a good idea to start a thread that lists the pair/dance splits and retirements of the skaters that FSWer knows. Here are three recent news items:

    Lindsay Davis and Mark Ladwig split after 2013 U.S. Nationals - USFS' press release: http://www.usfsa.org/Story.asp?id=48971&type=media
    Jessica Dubé and Sébastien Wolfe retire from competitive figure skating - Skate Canada press release (Jan. 9, 2013): http://www.skatecanada.ca/AboutUs/NewsDetails/tabid/2157/sni[2797]/2309/language/en-US/Default.aspx
    Jessica Dubé's previous pairs partner, Bryce Davison, is busy coaching young skaters - here's a January 2013 article: http://www.cbc.ca/sports/figureskating/story/2013/01/17/hamilton-skating-pro.html
    FSWer, feel free to ask questions in this thread if you want to know about the status of specific skaters or teams that you're not sure about. :)

    Thanks. Can we make this sticky?...WHAT?!! That's a first in Partnership History. A partnership only lasting for 1 Competition. BTW. is Amanda Evora looking for a new Partner?

    Lindsay Davis and Mark Ladwig competed for one season together (a few summer competitions in 2012, 3 international competitions this past fall, plus 1 Nationals).

    Amanda Evora is coaching in Florida and is not looking for a new partner, as far as I know. Here are a couple of photos of "Coach Amanda" at 2013 U.S. Nationals in Omaha, Nebraska on her club's site: http://www.swffsc.org/

    Can you post the direct link to the actual page? All I got was the clubs site. Amanda isn't even listed under the "Coaching Staff" Link.

    WOW!!! Amanda looks different as a coach. The Girl on the right in the Black and white,right? BTW. can anyone identify the young Pair Team? What do we know about them? Can you also post the links to the other Photos?

    Yes, that's Amanda.

    Their first names are Grace (age 12) and Noah (age 17) and they finished 6th in Novice Pairs at 2013 Nationals.

    There's only one other photo and it's kind of dark: http://ellentonice.com/images/easyb...n-Figure-Skaters-2013-Championships-Omaha.jpg
    Amanda is on the far left, standing next to Felicia Zhang (red dress) and Nathan Bartholomay (blue shirt, holding flowers) who won the bronze medal in Senior Pairs at 2013 Nationals, who Amanda helped coach with head coach Jim Peterson (man wearing the glasses).

    COOL!!!! Were they on TV.? I don't remember seeing them. Unless there a Team I don't reconize easily. Do we have a Skating Photos of them? What Level are they? What moves do they have?

    Grace & Noah weren't on NBC's broadcast of Nationals because Novices aren't shown on TV (they can do double jumps and double throw jumps), but the Senior pair team of Felicia Zhang (age 19) & Nathan Bartholomay (age 23) were on TV and skated very well, with triple jumps, triple twist lift, and triple throws. I'll try and find some skating photos of Zhang & Bartholomay later.

    BTW. at the 2013 Nationals,what were these 2 introduced as? I notice that we only know their names as Grace and Noah. So I'm assuming that young Pair and (or) Ice-Dance Teams under 18 are not introduced by last names?

    Say,when we talk about not shown on TV. because of Level,are talking about..the TV. Station desiding to edit those Levels THEMSELVES...because they think Novices are boring,are we talking about the Federation working together with the station and desiding togethe that Novices are boring to watch..OR are we talking about a rule in the Rulebook saying that Novices aren't allowed to be shown?

    I can't find any that aren't in the Icenetwork.com photo galleries that your computer won't let you view, sorry.

    U.S. TV networks don't show Novice or Junior level events at Nationals because they only have limited time to televise the Seniors (usually just the top ones).

    BTW, you asked about Allison Timlen a while ago:
    She is at the Senior level in singles, and I thought you'd like to know that she is looking for a partner to learn pairs with for next season. If she finds a partner I will let you know by posting in this thread.

    LOL,if that's the only problem (limited Time). The way around that is to work the amount of Skaters they have in with the Networks. BTW. why because of what they can do? Are you able to Google Skating photos of Grace and Noah? I really wish Allison luck btw.

    Thanks, ioana! :)

    They were introduced at 2013 Nationals with their full names - Grace Knoop and Noah Chinault.

    FSWer, in case you didn't see or hear this news today, Lindsay Davis has found a new partner already - he is Rockne Brubaker who was a two-time U.S. National Pairs champion back in 2008 & 2009.

    I thought this was the participant skater forum.
