    I am surprised but I guess they have competed for a while and plans to retire
    they were one of the more stable US Pairs, partnership wise

    Sad.

    Their programs always really stood out. It's a shame they never could get the jumps consistent.

    Shame Yankowskas isn't available any more (although as was remarked already, maybe Ladwig will continue skating but not competitively).

    It would be quite hard for them to stay together after one of them retired.

    Wow, that's a surprise. Best of luck to both of them in the future. I was never a fan, but they always stood out as hard workers and very nice people.

    Nice tweet from Lynn K. and Logan G-S's twitter feed:

    We will miss you @LadwigMark and @Amanda_Evora! You are amazing skaters and two of the nicest people we've met!

    Sad to hear this news, but very happy I was able to see them skate in person at the 2009 Nationals in Cleveland. I certainly wish both of them the best, they've had such a wonderful presence in US pairs over the years. I will miss them!

    Evora/Ladwig have been my favourite pair in recent years (if not my favourite pair ever), and I was very, very lucky to watch them live in Cup of China 2011 (How can I ever forget their beautiful performances there )

    These two have left a mark in the sport - mostly in the way they embodied and embraced the Olympic spirit . Will never forget how they fought for the spot on the team in 2010 and their reactions after learning that they won silver (as well as the truly inspiring performances in Vancouver themselves)

    And Heather, thanks for sharing all your experiences with E/L!!

    Well, this was a surprise to see a few minutes ago and a sad one too.

    Have always, always enjoyed their skating and Amanda's lift positions were to die for. Never got the chance to see them skate or meet them, but everything I heard about them either here or at other sites was nothing but wonderful.

    They are two very classy people who represented their sport and Country over the years w/great diginity and also joy. They will indeed be missed.

    (((Heather))) I also instantly thought of you when I saw the thread. Glad you had early warning about it and were prepared.

    Add me as another sad fan. They are lovely, and I felt bad for them at Nationals. Classy, hard- working, beautiful skaters. Best of luck to them both!

    Shed a few tears. I hate endings. I will miss Amanda so very much and this lovely team. I feel even sadder now for them to not have ended it with a US championship gold. But, still a wonderful career that they should be so proud of. Best of luck to both of them in their lives. Great memories!

    Heather....wanted you to know I am thinking of you! I thought E&L were not given their due by the judges in quite a few events. I will always remember how well they did in Vancouver. One of my favorite memories from the 2010 games. I thought these two would be perfect for SOI because their exhibitions are so good. But who knows if there will be any pro skating in the US coming up .....so college is a good path.

    Very sad to learn about their split .

    Although it's already been mentioned about their inconsistency on the jumps, these two had some of the best lifts in the business/sport -- Amanda could/should hold a clinic on posture and body positions for Women (*cough*CaydeeDenney*cough*)..

    Kudos to Maxim Trankov for his kind and classy response to this news .

    I assume the Carruthers may hold the record?

    So sad to learn of this split. I have loved this team since seeing them for the first time @ 2005 Skate America in Atlantic City, NJ. Two lovely people - I wish them both all the best in the future.

    That's a shame. They were a lovely pair and seem like really nice people to boot. to them. (And I also "awwwed" at Trankov's comment.)

    Nice to see Amanda written up in the Houston Chronicle blog (she started skating in Sugar Land, TX): http://blog.chron.com/sportsupdate/2...return-to-ice/

    How tall is Mark? I think Amanda is very tiny - like 4'11" or 5'-- so Mark is probably not 6 feet. Maybe 5'10"? Not tall enough for Ashley, but tall enough for Lindsay Davis.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
