    Good one. His triple axel - the first one "ratified" if I'm not wrong - was a hot mess (heehee). Legs and feet were almost in a flailing spread position. But Hey, he landed it! I also wonder where he is/what he did in his life.

    There are so many on ice/off ice couples in this sport but I noticed most of them don't have children. I know it's not my business. I'm just curious.
    Wirtz and Wirtz are coaching at the Kitchener-Waterloo skating club, and their students include Moore-Towers/Moscovitch.

    If I am not mistaken, Lyndon Johnston is a coach in Florida -- for Zhang/Bartholomay, for example. Maybe for Denney/Frazier as well ... off the top of my head, can't remember for whom else.

    You are not mistaken! Lyndon Johnston is the figure skating director at the Ellenton, FL, rink, and the coach of Zhang and Bartholomay

    Ellenton is on Florida's Gulf Coat, south across Tampa Bay from St. Petersburg, FL.

    What about Morgan Matthews? I can see wikipedia notes she is coaching at The Skating Club of Boston and attending Wellesley -- which should certainly open doors for her future! But still, I always felt bad for her not getting released to skate for Canada. Just wondered if anybody had a personal anecdote, hopefully along the lines of "she's happily pursuing a -b- c ..."

    Similarly, I still feel gutted for Emily Samuelson not finding a suitable partner.

    One of the great things about skating fans is that we're so loyal. I've seen over and over again how we maintain interest in skaters who leave the sport and wish them well--and not just the great skaters of yesteryear but the ones who almost made it but didn't quite end up at the top of the pyramid.

    I vaguely remember reading that she had married her student, Ivan Dinev....

    According to Wikipedia, she and Ivan married in 2008, had a baby girl in 2012 (!), and coach together in the Los Angeles area. So nice!
