    I've just logged in on purpose to share this news. Blue Dog beat me to it. lol
    it's such a shame that Emily is without a partner... again. She is so talented!
    Also I wish nothing but the best for Todd as well.
    Their FD to Stairway to Heaven was really good and showed a lot of promise. Hopefully they will be able to move on and be happy with their choices.

    I read her facebook post too. I'm so glad that she took the time to post the story since their will be no press release from the usfsa. I wish her luck in the future.

    I didn't think this partnership was going anywhere..but I want Emily to have a partner..

    I feel we wuzrobbed that we haven't been able to see her perform... at the level she's capable of.

    I hope she can find a partner . It's still the first split I can't get over, and I don't want carry this resentment around forever.

    I can't, either... (though I did not expect myself I would enjoy Chock & Bates that much at the US Nats.)

    I was hoping she'd find a partner to her level, and Gilles wasn't that, so yes.

    Maybe Mager, Cowan, Lavrik, or Copely will skate with her.

    First Jana Khokhlova, then Vanessa Crone, and now Emily Samuelson. It's so tragec that all these first-rate female ice dancers are without worthy partners...

    They would form a most amazing synchro team!

    However, in all fairness, this is why I think solo dance should be added at least to worlds.

    Or they could partner with each other.

    I don't think Dean Copely would work. He's SHORT, only about 5'5". Far cry from Evan!

    According to their bios, their heights are:
    - Copely 5' 7"
    - Samuelson 5' 4"
    [For comparison: Lichtman 5' 6". But Bates 6' 2", and T Gilles 6' 0".]

    In any case, best wishes to Emily and to Todd.

    I think it would be soapy gold if Todd Gilles went to Canada to skate with Vanessa Crone.

    Blue dog, I second that!

    I am sure this new descipline will attract not only viewers/fans but also SKATERS, and help a great deal to regain the popularity of this sport which has been, sad to say, declining these days.
