I have to say I couldn't understand Elena's choice. Morozombie over Nikita? Seriously I hope it weren't true.
What the... ?!!! *shocked*
This was long coming.
I wonder how this is going to affect their placement at this Worlds.
This CANNOT BE TRUE!!! NOOOOO!!!!!!!!!
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??
What? I really like them. They are such great couple on ice. Two beautiful and talented people. What a lost for ice dancing
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.
If true then it's total madness. She is the most amazing female Ice Dancer in years apart from Tessa.
