I guess Dylan Moscovitch and Rudi Swiegers wanted to have their own pairs long time ago, what a pity we don't have competition for male-male pairs: https://www.facebook.com/27855029253...type=1&theater
Paige Lawrence and Rudi Swiegers split as well:
Looks like Meagan and Eric now have no in-country rivals, with Kirsten and Dylan, Paige and Rudi, Natasha and Mervin, and Margaret and Michael all splitting. Guess we'll see some new teams rising.
Lol, at this point, D/R will only need to show up to win Nationals. I hope it'll inspire them to take more stylistic risks, rather than resulting in them coasting.
It's hard for same-gender pairs to be competitive though. The lifts and throws will be a challenge.
There's something weird going on with the URL in the Skate Canada link to the Lawrence & Swiegers press release.
I wonder if this one will work better?
Anna and Luca said yesterday on Sky Sport Ita that they are continuing the next year also. They will se how it goes step by step.
Carolina said she has not decided yet.
Is there a new pair in the offing?:

Aww. Brian's been talking about the pairs thing since before Torino. It would be sad if he doesn't at least give it a shot.
Another loss from the decline in the pro scene. Generations ago, Brian could've tried pairs as a pro, right? Well, I guess he can do group numbers in a show but it's not the same. Come back, Brian, come back...
An interesting new couple could be Simon Shnapir and Ashley Cain, Simon has the height for Ashley. I would love to see that. Do not know if it wold work but could be interesting
I hope he doesn't pair up with Leng- she's lovely but she's also not the most exciting performer and I think he needs a more dynamic partner with star quality. Same goes for Lindsay Davis who had two uninspiring partnerships with a former National champion and a former Olympian. The reason C/S worked despite the height difference was because she was a total star and he showed her off really well. While finding another Marissa will be hard, he does need to get someone with a certain charisma.
