Oksana Domnina and Maksim Shabalin Out of Worlds

Domnina and Shabalin announced that they will not be competing at the upcoming World Figure Skating Championships because Maksim re-injured his knee. He was ordered off the ice for six weeks after his knee operation in December, but returned after three weeks in order to prepare for the European Championships. A three-week rest after Europeans was not enough time for the knee to recover.

This presents an enormous opportunity for Belbin and Agosto, as they hope to become the first Americans to win the World Championships in the ice dancing event.
