Sometimes one athlete has fulfilled his/her Olympic dream and is ready to move on while another member of the team wishes to continue elite skating. I rather enjoyed someone else's comment about how, after the Olympics, teams rush to "Divorce Court."
    There's no way Elena will be ready by the Olympics, so I say use this time to learn from mistakes, decide what she wants to do: look for a partner, start fresh, mentally...prepare for what is to come.

    Nope I really loved that one too
    That was the time when twizzles were a mess but they were presenting both as a couple on the ice. Sometimes Nikita is in his own bubble but not there.

    yep, btw that shows that Ruslan really had no other choice, for whatever reason... Would have made all sense to try Olympics still (after all, if B/S or S/B got injured, the Olympic spot would be a possibility).

    There's one more thing, though. If Elena and Ruslan will split because of his injury she will probably still need a new partner if she will want to make some money in ice shows.
