    Say,I asked about Kimmie. But what about Melissa and Denis? Are they still competing? They've been really quiet lately too.

    Actually, they be been all over the place. I think you need to expand the places you look for figure skating news because you've been missing a lot!

    Are you on Facebook or Twitter? You can follow a lot of skaters there and keep up with what they are doing. From Facebook, I learned that Melissa won an award and Denis was on the Skating with the Stars show.

    Let's directly answer FSWer's original question: No. Melissa and Dennis last competed at an eligible event at Skate Canada 2007, where they had to withdraw after an accident during the warm-up to the FD.

    Denis appeared on the "Skating with Celebrities" show, and I believe he's said that he's putting together a skating show in Las Vegas.

    They are no longer competing in the eligible ranks. Haven't since Skate Canada 2007.

    IIRC, it was mostly a financial thing, not enough money to get it going again after the layoff. They started coaching about 3 years ago.

    i think Aceon means that they had to take time off after the injury to recover, They both got hurt in that accident in the warm up.
