Didn't Gregory & Petukov find one another online?
Maybe Max Aaron should learn pairs. He comes from a pairs skating family and he is young and strong. Any young male skater who has height and size should strongly consider going into pairs. It gives them a much better shot at going to GP events, Worlds, and the Olympics.
The real problem is that there are far less male skaters to go around. This is just a sport that attracts the ladies, but not the menfolk. Caitlin isn't the only talented female pair skater left stranded, although there are two ways to look at it:
Glass half full: At least Caitlin got to experience a high level of international success as part of a pairs team.
Glass half empty: Caitlin proved herself to be an internationally competitive pairs skater but was unable to take it further due to human factors.
To help future Caitlins, boys must either be encouraged/forced to participate in figure skating, or female/female pairs and ice dancing must be allowed.
