    I never said they didn't earn their spot. But I do believe that staying together just to do a major competition takes away the points that the remaining teams have to earn.

    IF better teams were deserving they would have placed over them... JMHO.

    It's reported the surgery was made a couple of days ago in Japan.

    Thanks.

    As for G/D, they are both going to continue skating (or at least one of them is looking for a partner) so it's not like their JW experience was a "waste." (And in any case, they did earn it).

    Totally agree!! Whether they are still skating together or not, they totally deserved the spot at Junior Worlds and good for them for going and finishing the season!

    Chad Tsagri (as mentioned above) and Maria Sergejeva are both listed on ice partner search. Does anyone know reasons behind these splits and if the other 'halves' are still skating/with new partners? Maybe the two of them could team up together!

    I think *results consistently in the gutter* is a good enough reason to split up that one need not pry and look for other causes.

    Knierim is newly listed there as of today.

    It's been posted already in this thread that Maria Sergejeva has outgrown Ilja Glebov. They've started to struggle with some of the pair elements as a result. Maria is very tall for a pair skater now.

    Perhaps that implies to the other Gilles as well?? I heard Todd and Jane also split, rumor was there before the 4CC Maybe the siblings can team up?

    Not really surprised to hear about Gilles/Donohue (after their post-skate/KnC interactions at Nationals) but wasn't really expecting Summersett/Gilles to split. I can see where they'd feel stuck behind C/Z, H/H, etc but I really enjoyed them. Any idea if they'll look for new partners?

    I can't really picture Piper & Todd together.

    Who was the deserving team , your daughter ? If they were so deserving they would have gone on their own merit , not by default ! Gilles/ Donahue earned the spot and deserved the experience!

    None of us know what Gilles/Donahue's though process was. Maybe they saw junior worlds as a "last chance" and that if they did well/scored well, they would stay together, but since they were somewhat dumped score-wise decided not to.

    Pairs Skating Solo

    I just came across this video of Drew Meekins doing a solo exhibition number (and showing some Shawn Sawyer-like flexibility):

    Someone find this man a partner!

    G/D are not the first team, and certainly not the last to go the JWs or Worlds for that matter and then move on to new partners. Give them a break. They earned their trip to JWs.

    YES PLEASE!! I can't think of anyone he'd be a good match with though. If he could only grow a a few inches...

    Or they could apply some Super Shrink-It to Julia Vlassov and get her back to her former height. . . He really, really needs a partner! Feels like his talent is being wasted! (and his 'traditional' position spiral is really, really gorgeous.)

    Drew's not short! He's three or four inches taller than Rockne, for starters, and he's taller than Jeremy Barrett too. He's almost 5' 11".
