    Tarah Kayne & Danny O'Shea

    Pair skaters Tarah Kayne & Danny O'Shea represent the U.S. Kayne was born on April 28, 1993, in Fort Myers, Florida, while O'Shea was born on February 13, 1991, in Pontiac, Michigan. Kayne & O'Shea are the 2016 U.S. National Champions.

    Tarah and Danny say their names here:

    Possibly the biggest surprise of the 2015 US championships, this team had only competed once before the 2015 nationals due to Tarah's hip surgery and came out of nowhere to win the bronze medal. I had the chance to meet them after the competition, and let me just tell you that they may be some of the nicest people you will ever meet! I am now a big fan of theirs, and I can't wait to see them compete a full season! While we wait, however, here are some tidbits you may want to check out on them.

    It seems like K/O are going to put in a throw quad sal in the free program tomorrow, and apparently they already landed one in practice!

    Today's LP at Rostelecom was lovely! So happy for them that they were able to pull up from 6th to 4th! I believe it was also a PB for them

    They did really well- kept it fast and fluid even with a few small errors.

    Tarah and Danny's new SP was awesome today. But their reaction in the K&C to their scores ranks right up there with one of the best ever and should make the highlight reels. So happy for them!!

    I also loved it! The only program from nationals so far that I've watched again, or actually that I could ever see myself watching again in the future. Brilliantly done! I can' wait for their long

    Heyyy no party in the fan fest of the newly-crowned national champions? Congrats to Tarah and Danny!

    I had no idea who they were before SA, but I don't know why I just fell in love with them during COR. Really happy that they won nationals. Hoping they can perform even better at Worlds and get a good placement.... is a Top 10 finish too much to ask for? I can dream, can't I? XD

    I'm so happy for these two!! And I do genuinely think top 10 at Worlds could be realistic if they go clean, yes.

    With skates like those? No doubt in my mind. I seriously can't wait for Worlds!

    I almost cried when the won and I NEVER cry over skating. (And yet I almost cried over them, the Shibs, and Gracie all in one day...)

    Tarah and Danny's FS was my second favorite performance yesterday (#1 was the Shibs). That performance was incredible - to know you are capable of winning and then to skate a great program - with so much confidence and joy was GREAT!

    I can't get over how many times Danny smiled during that skate. It seems like it is rare in pairs skating for the man to show that much joy and confidence during a competition.

    I hope that they take this and use it as more confidence to get better skills and do better in future competitions.

    I want to give a hat tip to their coach Jim Peterson: Here is a short interview with TSL after their win. I feel like Peterson is a great combination of attitude, focus, and encouragement. I think I would like working with him day-by-day, especially through the rough times.

    I'm looking forward to worlds and clean performances from them then! They're definitely my favourite US pairs team.

    Their teamwork and emotional connection on ice are just... gah, they're fantastic. I feel like their COR gala shows us a glimpse of what they're capable of performance-wise. The simple, contemporary style does suit them a lot and I'm in love with that gala... and spread eagles. Lots of them. They should do more programs like these in the future, whether in competition or in exhibitions. I don't mind the POTO program though, I just love their gala much more.
