Yuka and Alissa
Yuka and Alissa
Really sad to see that Tracy and Michael split up, but we knew that that was coming; it was just a matter of time. We'll see how Yuka will do with Alissa, but I can't imagine that she will be able to crack that nut.
Most interesting of all is the fact that Leah Keiser, the reigning US Novice Champion who is only twelve and won't be 13 until mid-September is switching to Frank Carroll. This young lady has oodles of potential and is really a sweet kid. I can't wait to see how she does this year.
It will be interesting to see what Yuka can do with Alissa. I hope Alissa has a good season.
Frank Carroll is getting busy.

If skaters retire, do the tiers remain empty or can a skater in a lower tier move up?

I'm really behind on my US skaters news. Are Castile/Okolski both out of skating, period?Also sorry about Summersett/Gilles. I forgot that Best/Young split but at least he *might* get a new partner(?). Sheesh, seems like half the people I've actually seen around DSC are splitting up/ leaving.
I also agree it seems weird to see Mirai slightly below the "top tier," despite explanations of what that means.
(And it's weird to hear about some other promising team/ skater quitting before I ever saw them. )
Agghh, I missed the news about Summersett/Gilles. I know their results this year were disappointing but I really liked their 2009 programs, a lot.
