Vanessa James is skating with Maximin Coia now, I heard.
Such a shame, I really liked this pair. Don't ask me why, but I always wished they would skate to "Born on the Fourth of July."
Maybe Caroline Zhang should do pairs, she's so tiny and does not seem to "fill up" any time soon US has so many talent girls who can switch to pairs. I can't see Vanessa pair up with Rockne, not only physical does not match, their skating skills are also at different level.
Maybe John Baldwin can take a cue from Stanislav Morozov and step aside to let Rena skate with a partner closer to her level.
Man, I really liked this pair and my heart broke for them in Spokane. Best of luck to both Keauna and Rockne.
How about Kimmie Meissner??? I remember Kimmie said in her tweets before that she tried to skate with Rockne for pairs before
Well I'm pretty gutted to hear this. They had the potential to be so very good, but I guess being annointed as the next Tai and Randy was a pretty big burden, not to mention the puberty issues. And while it's not as effortless as it all once was, I do believe that they could have adjusted with more time. The saddest fact is that the poor girl is totally burnt out
I"m sure there are plenty of objections to this idea, but why not? Sasha's 3s is her best jump, she certainly has the flexibility and the ability to create amazing lines, and with her background in gymnastics, with practice she could likely pick up many of the pairs elements necessary.
Plus, she's not likely to grow anymore, and she's certainly petite.
In addition, the PR on this would certainly create an interest in pairs .

This news is interesting timing since we were just talking about their recent appearance at the Skate for Hope and how Keanu seemed to still be struggling:
Unless the star of The Matrix has taken up pairs skating, I don't think you mean "Keanu."
Charter member of the "We Always Believed in Ashley" Club and the "We Believe in Ricky" Club
Oh, very sad, such a promising team.
I hope Rockne will find a new partner and continue at this level.
