    Considering the lack of male pair figure skaters in Japan, I wonder if that's the end for Narumi.....

    This is sad! They were such a special pair with nice lines and choreography! I'll miss them so much.

    Why did they split exactly?

    Is it because her injury / he couldn't get Japanese citizenship / she will seek a Japanese partner in order to compete at the Olys ?

    I for one hope that this tweet today from Mervin Tran ‏@skate_moivo will put to rest all the speculation about potential partners from the U.S.:

    Good job skaters at this year's Nationals. Quality level of performances were the best in years for all events; good time to return home.

    I can't remember--do you need full citizenship or just a green card to compete at the Olympics?
    You need to be a citizen. A green card does not count.
