Values her privacy
The examples you gave - Parson was lucky that there was another ice dance couple at their rink who split up at the same time. Also, he was a relatively lower level skater, so he would have more choices. Ilynikh had bronze at Olympics, she was in top five or six in the world. That’s a different situation than a skater who looked promising but has never even qualify for worlds.Well, in the small sample of Crone/Poirier, Samuelson/Bates, and Ilinykh/Katsalapov, all the men have since medalled at Worlds, and all the women are no longer skating competitively.
Further down the ranks, Michael Parsons didn't seem to have much trouble finding a new partner when his sister retired. Neither did Chris Reed a few years before him.
OTOH, both Hurtado and Diaz were able to find new partners after their split, though Adrian did so faster than Sara.
Anyway I don't think any of the Russian women will be taking up pairs or ice dance (really, none of them have the skating skills for the latter...)
Hurtardo and Diaz - they were also lower level skaters (14-23 at worlds and 13 at the Olympics), and they were lucky that there were so many split ups around the world. For Hurtardo to have Khaliavin, the Russian federation had to release him. So she could easily be without a partner if Russian federation did their usual tricks. Luckily Hurtardo did not pose any threat to their ice dancers.
Zahorski was waiting for the right partner for a few years. Khokhlova retired when Novitski had to retire because of injuries. Actually, Khokhlova asked Katsalapov if he would skate with her. He didn’t want to break up his partnership with Ilynikh, so Khokhlova tried one season with Andreev who was singles skater, because she couldn’t find anyone better. It didn’t go anywhere and then she retired.
What do you mean that none of Russian women will be taking up pairs? Of course they will. Jasmina Kadyrova, who was competing at GP this weekend, switched from singles two years ago. In fact, every year quite a few pretty decent junior singles ladies switch to pairs. Kostiuk, Solovieva, Chistiakova, Vasilieva, Osokina… That’s why I am saying, it is much easier to find a partner for pairs than for ice dance. From elite skaters, Hotarek picked Marchei from singles, Vanessa James took Cipres from singles…
But Russian ladies are also switching to ice dance. In the past it was Davankova, who switched quite successfully thanks to Morozov, but unfortunately gave up too soon. More current for example Davis, Mitrofanova (now skating for Bosnia and Herzegovina), Kanysheva (still in juniors).
