    Ladies

    ...haven't heard any news. Have any of the Japanese ladies retired? (Akiko? Fumie? Yukari?)

    What about Júlia Sebestyén? Kiira Korpi? Anastasia Gimazetdinova? Sarah Meier? Tugba Karademir?

    Men

    Stephane Lambiel
    Evgeny Plushenko (due to skating in an event not sanctioned by the ISU)
    Vaughn Chipeur
    ...not sure about Stefan Lindemann ?
    Ryan Bradley has talked about retirement, but I think he's waiting to see if a foot injury will heal properly...

    ...not sure if we'll see Lysacek or Weir back in the competitive ranks again...

    Pairs

    Shen and Zhao
    Volosozhar and Morozov (she's skating with new partner, right...he's retired?)
    Langlois and Hay (he's searching for new partner?)
    James and Bonheur (one or both looking for new partners?)
    Duhamel and Buntin (she's skating with Eric Radford now)

    What about Mukhortova and Trankov?

    Dance

    Domnina and Shabalin (?)
    Belbin and Agosto
    Delobel and Schoenfelder
    Khoklova and Novitski (she's skating with Fedor Andreev)

    I'm pretty sure Navarro and Bommentre have retired.

    ...unsure about the Zaretskys and Hoffman/Zavozin...

    Not retired. Planning to skate in next Olympics, like Laura Lepistö, too.

    One Finnish lady has retired: Susanna Pöykiö.

    Only Yukari Nakano has retired. Both Akiko Suzuki and Fumie Suguri are scheduled to be on the Grand Prix this fall. Suzuki will start her international season at Finlandia Trophy.

    Sebestyén and Karademir have both retired, along with Bebe Liang of the USA. Korpi and Meier will be on the Grand Prix. Not sure about "Gizmo's" status.

    Lindemann has retired and is coaching now.

    You haven't been keeping up here at FSU, PeterG! :p
    Volosozhar is now skating with Maxim Trankov for Russia (yes, S. Morozov has retired) while Maria Mukhortova is skating with Jerome Blanchard (formerly of France) for Russia.

    I believe Cody Hay is still looking for a partner. Langlois has retired and she will be on CBC's "Battle of the Blades" this fall.

    Vanessa James was RUMORED to be skating with Maximin Coia (they're still assigned to TEB on the ISU site as of today) but it's UNCONFIRMED whether or not they are still together. Adeline Canac is skating with Yannick Bonheur, last I heard.

    Zaretskys have retired and Hoffman/Zavozin are continuing.

    :lol:

    It took me about three months to find out what was up with Rockne Brubaker. I will read one page (40 posts) of a thread, but I will not spend three hours reading 25 pages of posts to find out one answer! :eek:

    Oh, that's a big can of worms.... there were lots of rumors and veiled accusations. And some not so hidden.

    It's hard to know what's true and what's not.

    Apparently she's been unhappy in the partnership for a while now, but some think that the French Federation was playing "king maker" and split them up in order to make a better pair.

    Someone saying they are Vanessa actually posted about it here on FSU at one point. Maybe someone has a link to that post and you can read it for yourself.

    And then weren't people saying that the new pair of Vanessa James/ Maximin Coia didn't actually work out? So confusing.

    Here it is.

    Splitting J/B and C/C did yield a new pair - just not the one the FFSG was hoping for... :p

    Reading about who is in and who is out is getting me all excited for the new season! Might not be good for the old blood pressure, all this excitement! Thanks for all the updates.
