    Ando has not officially retired, as far as I know.
    I hear outside a million panicking birds, and know even out there comfort is done with; it has shattered even the stars, this creature at last come home to me.

    It's going to be sad when the 2013-14 season ends. Imagine the retirements then.

    Oh that's too bad. I'll always remember how happy she was with her short program at 2010 worlds where she qualified to skate the free. Too bad she never reproduced that, but she will always have that moment.

    Is Ian Lorello still training/competing? I thought he was working with Lauri Bonacorsi at DSC, but haven't heard/seen anything about them for a long time.

    I'm glad they had the experience of competing in the Senior Pairs event at 2012 US Nationals!

    Last I heard, Lorello may still be looking for a partner? They parted ways sometime last summer due to his injury and I believe Bonacorsi started college full-time at the Univ. of Pennsylvania.

    Jordan Cowan retired last year - he was 7th in Senior Dance at 2012 US Nationals with Anastasia Olson.

    Todd Gilles, who was 8th in Senior Dance at 2012 US Nationals with Emily Samuelson, also retired (for the second time).

    Did Emily Samuelson also expressed her intention to retire the last summer? Not because she wanted to, but primarily because of Todd Gilles' retirement and difficulty finding another suitable partner.
