Is Gracie even 18 yet? I wouldn't want my 17 year old dating a 21 year old!
Then again, how often do you think they actually see each other?

Oh man, if Gracie and Max are actually dating
On the upside, their kids would be really great jumpers!!

The drive and focus (shadenfreude?) of these skaters is amazing. Boyfriend becomes coach, then partner becomes boyfriend; but the 3 all still work and travel together. And succeed. And again, vice versa with Mozorov and Ilinikh. I'm sure there are others.

I'm not sure what the problem is. The age difference between Max and Gracie is about what it was for G/G. I'm sure at about the same age they shared a kiss or two also.

It isn't the age difference per se, but the stage of life they are in. If it was 19 and 23, it wouldn't be as odd to me.

G/G got together at about the same age. As for whether they are a couple in the note Gracie says she's Max's girlfriend.

The age difference is less concerning when you take into consideration these are elite athletes who have lived very sheltered lives. Partying too much, doing drugs, getting pregnant, and suffering drunken injuries are all potentially career-ending in there effects. Idk if I were the parent of an Olympic hopeful athlete I wouldn't be too concerned about them making bad choices.

Maybe it's only pre-Olympic fluff in the making. You know, to give media a Story line.

I don't see anything wrong with that age difference.

Or maybe they really like each other and are actually dating.

This makes me so sad. But at least it was "until death do we part."

I didn't know that Totmianina and Marinin were a couple. They skated as if they didn't want to touch each other.

Did anyone mention Selezneva and Makarov? I think they've been married almost 30 years.

They are a successful Soviet/Russian love story. Why can't skaters in Russia today stay together for longer than a quadrennium?
