    I watched the video and all it implies to me is that they were together at the time of the video being shot, whenever that was. I hate to assume anything though. And she says this season, I'm doing singles...but its not very clear if she means only singles in general or just singles for her college team but still continuing pairs on the national level.

    Press release says:
    (3/20/14) - Caydee Denney and John Coughlin, the reigning U.S. pairs bronze medalists, have withdrawn from the 2014 ISU World Figure Skating Championships due to an injury to Denney's right ankle. The World Championships will take place March 24-30, 2014, in Saitama, Japan. The World Championships will take place March 24-30, 2014, in Saitama, Japan.

    Denney, 20, sustained the injury Wednesday in practice and is expected to resume training in 8-12 weeks.

    Felicia Zhang and Nathan Bartholomay, first alternates to the U.S. World Team, have accepted an invitation to the World Championships. The Florida-based duo most recently placed 12th at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games after winning the U.S. silver medal in January.

    I don't believe this local New Jersey article (published 2/2/14) about Felicia and the Zhang family was posted here before the start of the Olympics: http://www.nj.com/mercer/index.ssf/2..._olympics.html

    ^They certainly could've placed higher than Z/B.

    I wonder if they are planning to call it quits

    "We're so devastated that we won't be able to represent the U.S. and skate for the wonderful Japanese fan base at worlds," Denney and Coughlin said. "Our preparation for this event has been fantastic, and we were looking forward to showcasing our hard work. We are thankful that Caydee will make a full recovery and that this won't affect our long-term goals.

    "We are, as always, 100 percent behind Team USA and will be supporting our teammates every step of the way."

    Good to hear it doesn't sound like they plan on retiring just yet. Pairs at US Nationals is starting to be an exciting event, with several strong teams .

    They worked hard to address some of their presentation issues this past summer & I thought they came out with two strong programs at Nationals. It's unfortunate they missed some elements in both programs since this was the best I saw them look otherwise. Not sure there is such a thing as a good time to get injured, but they've had terrible timing the past two years.

    Hoo boy. They took off a whole season for John's surgery & recovery, were headed back to worlds, and now this? It must be incredibly frustrating for them.

    On a related note, will there ever be a skating boot that prevents ankle injuries?? I have heard WAY too many stories of ankle injuries in skates.
    BARK LESS. WAG MORE.

    I wonder what their long-term goals are, if they're planning on trying to continue until 2018?

    I stand corrected: The IN article snippet above quotes D/C as having 'long term goals'. Perhaps they will NOT retire? It is kind of vague, though.

    Lol I clicked on this link with a stone in my stomach, dreadfully fearing a split of an awesome pair, which I fully expect to read after Worlds, but thank goodness it what wasn't I expected!

    That said, I am real sorry to read the news about Caydee Denney. I was hoping against hope that with a deflated Worlds, meaning not everybody showing up, both D&C and Castelli/Schnapir just might equal 13, which would mean 3 pairs for next year's Worlds, but alas there's no possibility now.

    Ah well, Good Luck to Z&B and C&S at Sr. Worlds.

    Maybe Z/B and C/S can improve on their Olympic placements and get three spots (or not).

    Not necessarily, with John still being rusty coming off his injury. Z/B may not have the biggest tricks but they were clearly well-trained at Nats and Olys. (I do hope I have not just jinxed them for Worlds!)

    Isn't it kind of strange that we never hear anything from D/C's rink, no gossip. If D/C used to be together romantically and supposedly have now broken up personally, I just kind of assumed that that might also be the end of the skating partnership too. When they were not chosen for the Os but for Worlds, to me, this seemed as if the US leaving them out of the Os selection was saying oh ya we kind of forgot that you all were US champion (was it twice?) and placed kind of high at Worlds (twice?) but you can go to Worlds because, guess what, we need you, we really do, in order to try to get back to three places for next year. But do D/C owe the US anything? Not really, and that was just a tad bit insulting to have not chosen them for Os. I loved Z/B, their finish in Boston was really spectacular, but I get how D/C just might have felt a little left out. So I am not surprised they are not going to Worlds. And I really think that this perhaps might not be just an injury, so they waited until the very last minute to call in the subs. This might in fact be the end of all aspects of their relationship. I think it's kind of a shame because they were strong competitors, she could land anything like a cat, and I don't think they ever quite reached their full potential. They could have learned so much more about elegance and they surely could have used much better choreography. OTOH they chose to stay with that coach so they probably had peaked.
