This and That
Alicia Sacramone landed a Tampax Endorsement and met with a few fans.
Felicia Zhang and Taylor Toth confirmed the end of their partnership today. This has been coming for a while. The pair has not been on the same page for the last few months. Felicia is at the point where she needs to decide between pairs and singles, as it simply isn't working. She also is in the process of deciding on where she'll attend college. One of the many things to consider is that while she did receive a JGP assignment (that hindered their training for their senior Grand Prixs), she does not have a full arsenal of triples. Her strength at landing throw jumps makes her an asset as a pairs skater regardless of who her partner is. It is difficult to have one partner in their 20s and one still in high school and heavily dependent on a parent. Both say they will search for new partners.
