Figure skating pair Evora, Ladwig announce split after ten years

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Pairs skaters Amanda Evora and Mark Ladwig, five-time U.S. medalists and 2010 Olympians, have ended their 10-year partnership, with Evora retiring from competitive figure skating.

Ladwig plans to continue his skating career.

They competed at 10 consecutive U.S. Figure Skating Championships, dating back to 2003, and medaled at the last four. Their second-place finish in 2010 qualified Evora and Ladwig for the Vancouver Olympics, where they placed 10th.

Evora and Ladwig also represented the United States at two world championships (2010, `11) and competed in the Grand Prix of Figure Skating series for six seasons.

This year, they were third at nationals.
