    Unlikely. Vanessa is almost 5'6'' and is not a U.S. citizen. Even if height weren't an issue, he probably doesn't want to deal with the citizenship issues the partnership would yield.

    True, but it seems to be slim pickin' amongst U.S. ladies!

    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."

    If you update on the French thread here, she is no longer skating with him apparently..

    That was the news in the last weeks. But now she 'was' on icepartnersearch but today her bio is gone 'removed' by skater. Stay tuned for tomorrow's developments.

    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.

    CZ is not tiny at all any more.

    Zhang is what, 5'4"? She's not short anymore. She grew substantially taller in the past couple of years.

    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.

    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

    Just trying to lighten the mood.

    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 .
    Gun Control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to buy cars.

    yup when Rockne was about 16, and Kimmie was like 4'10" skating in novice!

    True. I'm sure diva Sasha is ready and motivated to join the frustrating world of U.S. pairs and learn a bunch of new things at age 26, or whatever she is now, and retired.

    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."

    Oh, very sad, such a promising team.
    I hope Rockne will find a new partner and continue at this level.

    I'm sorry to belabor this, and it is not just you who does this, but it is Keauna not Keanu. Just a pet peeve.

    Keanu Reeves is the actor. Keauna McLaughlin is the pairs skater.

    I'm with you.
    Keauna looked so defeated and confused when we last saw her.
    It was a shame.
