Out of curiousity I looked at the last several years results.
2006 - 4th place/11th place = (15)
2007 - 8th place/12th place = (16)
2008 - 10th place/11th place = (21)
2009 9th place/11th place = (18)
2010 - 7th place/9th place = (16)
2011- 6th place/11th place = (17)
2012 - 8th place/10th place = (18)
The last time US pair team to place in the top five was Inoe/Baldwin. I think that the US teams both skated very well at Worlds this year especially considering the fact that they are two new teams, however what will it take to have a top five team again?
