I wonder why the rumors about I/K were not mentioned during the telecast. ABC always talked about backstage gossip. The Eurosport guys said that I/K would be on podium for many years to come during the exhibition.
I wonder if G/P ever wanted to split when they were eligible skaters... they certainly wasted no time once they hit the pro ranks.
If what you said is true (I'm sure it's very close to the truth at least) than I/K/M are in a very difficult situation. I hope they (I/K) will stay together and go to different coach. It's the only 'safe' solution, it'll please almost everyone.
I've read about a show-tour they planned with 35 shows in Russia in April, information from March 16. If that is true I can't understand why things can change within 10 days.
