After an Olympic season it is not unusual to see changes come about and this post-season is no exception. Rumors began during the World Championships and speculations circulated, but now that the season is officially over many pairs and ice dancing teams have called it quits.
Some of these splits come as a surprise as it seemed like the teams got along well and were actually successful this past season, while other teams have chosen to end their partnership for more obvious reasons.
For many skaters the end of any Olympic season marks a fork in the road as many consider if their partner is really headed the same direction they are going and want to make sure to align themselves with the right coaches and partners so that they are prepared for the 2018 Olympic Games. Some teams parted ways on mutual terms while others seemed to carry a lot of unspoken drama.
