We sort of have discussed this, but here is a good article about Shae-Lynn for anyone interested. I would be happy to see Shae skate again!!
Bourne wants to return to skating
DORTMUND, Germany (CP) - Shae-Lynn Bourne wants to make a comeback.
The Chatham, Ont., ice dancer won the world championship with Victor Kraatz of Qualicum Beach, B.C., one year ago, and the couple dissolved their 12-year partnership soon afterwards.
Bourne is at the 2004 world meet helping off-ice partner Alexei Morozov with dance teams he trains in Connecticut.
`I never did retire,'' she said in an interview. ``My partner did but I guess when that happens most people think that it's over, skating is over.
``But I said from the beginning I'm not going to stop skating, I just have to find time to know which way I want to skate, whether it's going to be just pro stuff by myself or it's going to be with another partner.''
She will skate in Stars On Ice on her own and ``that will give me a month go make decisions about my future.''
Peter Tchernysev, who skated for the United States with Naomi Lang, might be looking for a new partner. Lang is pregnant and has told Tchernysev she won't continue competing. But Bourne said there's nothing concrete in terms of linking up with Tchernysev.
``That's who everyone is telling me to skate with,'' Bourne said. ``I know it would be an interesting couple because he's probably one of the best boys in the world and everyone knows that.
``I'll keep the door open but I haven't made any decisions. I'm hearing a lot of suggestions as to which way I should go. It's a big decision.''
She made one thing abundantly clear.
``I would only skate for Canada,'' she said. ``I won't skate for another country.
``That wouldn't be an option for me, which makes it hard, too, if I ever did skate again because there's nobody (feasible to partner with in Canada).''
