    Scenario 1 - PLEASE LET IT BE TRUE!!!! Elena deserves a lot better than that... [insert own insult]!

    Scenario 2 - PLEASE TELL ME IT'S NOT HAPPENED AGAIN!!!!

    I have to say I couldn't understand Elena's choice. Morozombie over Nikita? Seriously I hope it weren't true.

    This was long coming.

    I wonder how this is going to affect their placement at this Worlds.

    Yeah that is interesting to wonder. Will they even be respected as Russian #1 at this event or will the horrid Bobrova & Sloppov go back to being #1 immediately now.

    I hope that is not true. I had the heart broken after Vancouver because of the Khokhlova/Novitski split. Now two splits at the same time! T.T Elena & Nikita can dominate until Pyeonchang and be Olympics champions. WHY?? WHY??

    It says something that I'm much more invested in the breakup of this team than I am with the breakup ("conscious uncoupling") of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin.

    I've seen this team progress and at Sochi thought "this is going to be THE dominant team for the next quad, they will rule like Grishuk & Platov to 2018". And then ... too much to hope for. :(

    Imagine how wide open the world title will be for teams the next few years. No D&W, no V&M, no P&B, and now no I&K. It will truly be a free for all with 3, 4, or 5 teams thinking they can win, and others who probably cant win thinking they can medal. While I would be dissapointed with the I&K split, I admit I love that aspect that will come of it (the wide open competition in the coming years).

    They were a rocky unpredictable pair and really didn't work out most of the time.

    ... and somewhere, Bobrova, Soloviev and Zhulin all just unclenched their jaws ...

    If I could wave a magic wand and create the top 3 for the next quad, I would choose W/P, C/L and the Spaniards. But that's just me.

    Maxim Trankov 2.0

    Mukhortova = Ilinykh

    Sinitsina is great dancer

Let's the fight begin! (It would be nice if Elena and her new partner were coached by Igor).

    If true then it's total madness. She is the most amazing female Ice Dancer in years apart from Tessa.
