Evora and Ladwig end their partnership

According to US Figure Skating, Amanda Evora and Mark Ladwig have ended their 10-year pairs partnership. Evora is retiring, while Ladwig intends to continue skating.

US Figure Skating Announcement

I am not terribly surprised by this news; when they recently won the bronze at the 2012 US Figure Skating Championships, they failed to make the world team, which must have been a huge disappointment. Evora’s well-documented jumping difficulties were, unfortunately, not likely to get better given that she is 27. They will be remembered for their spectacular and difficult lifts.
