Why, oh why? They just had the most successful season.
While I completely understand that John needs time to heal, this is so disappointing. I felt like they were finally coming into their own as a team and was so excited to see them grow and develop over the next few years. I feel as though they had just scratched the surface.
I wish both of them the best of luck!
Who's out there for Caitlin to skate with????
the curse of the US pairs! This seems very oddly timed. They had a great season and even skated well at worlds. I was expecting them to continue to grow next season.
I guess I should expect it now. 2 of the top three pairs at Nats will split up before June each year.
So many of the top US pair teams split. You medal at nationals you go to worlds and then the team splits. Whoa. Good luck to both of them.
I wish John and Caitlin nothing but the best. As someone who used to skate at the same rink as John did while he was still living in Kansas City, I can honestly say that he is such a sincere and genuine person. I hope that whatever John wants to pursue whether it be coaching, being involved in another aspect of the sport or leaving the sport completely to concentrate on something else, I am sure that he will be successful.
This is a surprise. They are such a well-matched team, and I ACTUALLY thought they could work their way to be World Medal Contenders in the next year or two.
I think the International Judges has a preference to them as well. Great flow and transitions these two had.
Damn... Door will be wide open next year.
