    I guess you were really out of the loop. The accident happened right before they were to leave for Four Continents so they had to withdraw, allowing Rockne to compete at an ISU championship with his new partner.

    I believe there is some speculation that Denney was the instigator of the split because she wanted to partner up with John Coughlin, who announced his break with Caitlin Yankowskas shortly after Worlds. (But I could have that wrong )

    Jenna McCorkell's not that old. I think she's only 24 or 25. I know what people mean though, it seems like she's been skating in ISU events forever. I guess it's because she started competing internationally quite young, being Britain's only good female singles skater.

    I hope the coaching change brings positive stuff for both of them, as they've been struggling (especially her) in the last couple of seasons, although VDP did skate well at the 2011 Euros.

    Yes, she's 24, just like Carolina Kostner. It's KVDP who's pushing 29 (28 at moment but turns 29 in August). Not a bad jumper for 29...or any age, for that matter.

    Two more splits:

    Emily Samuelson/Evan Bates
    Adeline Canac/Yannick Bonheur

    No idea about Adeline but everyone else is looking for new partners.

    Oh and also Brooke Elisabeth Frieling / Lionel Rumi.

    Looks like he's looking for a new partner as Papa Boria posted a call for skaters with Jewish heritage on the Israeli Fed's website.

    That call has been there forever; easier to import Jewish skaters than to develop a skating program in Israel, I guess.

    We really do need another rink. And another federation to go with it.

    Yannick Bonheur is seriously planning to continue?

    ahah I heard that a few days ago (about the coach... and some rumors about Fede but those are still unclear)

    As I already read it on http://ontd-skating.livejournal.com/ I suppose it's out there - Marchei is leaving Morozov & moving to Sato/Dungjen too (confirmed), w/ possible choreo from Pasquale (I know she would like and they had talked, I expect it to happen but haven't the official confirmation yet).

    No comment on that. I just heard that she is not stopping.

    bueno! the source I heard about them actually didn't know the name of the guy... or better, I think she was even confused about his nationality! LOL

    The Detroit Figure Skating Club

    Most recent article from the Detroit Free Press

    http://www.freep.com/article/2011062...85/1048/sports

    Valentina Marchei's tenure at the club is confirmed to begin this weekend and an update on Adam Rippon. Interesting quote from Adam which has a "read between the lines quality"

    On having Dungjen as his primary coach: "I wasn't expecting him to be so fine-tuned with his technique, and it works really well for me. I knew I needed to continue to fix and develop, and I think in the past it was kind of, like, 'Well, just do it.' With Jason, he's not worried about taking things back and starting over, and fixing them so I don't have any problems. He hasn't suffocated me with new ideas, which has been great as well."

    Also, Evan Bates' teaming up with Madison Chock is also confirmed within this article.

    I dare to confirm because it is on the club´s site. Yes, if Federica gets things sorted out, they will represent FIN.

    If only Otar Japaridze would find a new partner soon...

    Italian "gazzetta dello sport" said the choreo from Pasquale was sure...(I hope it was right! )

    I think it is, I know they talked and everything, and that was a big part of the plan.
