Figure skating pair Kayne and O’Shea announce their split

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The U.S. figure skating pair of Tarah Kayne and Danny O’Shea, who won the national championship in 2016 and were bronze medalists at this year’s event, announced Thursday that they were ending their partnership.

The couple said in a statement that they were splitting up on amicable terms and that both would continue skating.

Kayne and O’Shea teamed up in 2012 and, despite several injuries over the years, earned medals in several international competitions. They won silver at the 2014 Four Continents and gold at the event four years later, and they were fourth at the virtual ISP Points Challenge earlier this season, when the pandemic forced the cancellation of many events.

The pair split in September with coach Dalilah Sappenfield and had been working with previous coaches Jim Peterson and Amanda Evora for the remainder of this season.
