Denney and Coughlin started the Olympic season by winning the silver medal at the U. International Figure Skating Classic in Salt Lake City.

The two then began their Grand Prix season at Skate America in Detroit.

The injury forced the two to withdraw from the competition.

2014 Olympians Felicia Zhang and Nathan Bartholomay accepted the offer as first alternates to compete in their place.

They both were overwhelmingly impressed with the competition in Sochi, especially the pairs event.

“There were a lot of Olympic moments for a lot of teams,” said Coughlin.

Though thoroughly disappointed at missing their chance at competing together at the Olympic Games, the two spent time regrouping to prepare for what was next, the World Championships in Japan.

After a long wait, Denney and Coughlin were ready to show the world just how hard they have been working.

There were places where we could grow and improve,” said Coughlin.

Despite not being in Sochi, Denney and Coughlin watched the Olympics to cheer on their teammates and friends from other countries who were competing.

Our preparation for this event has been fantastic, and we were looking forward to showcasing our hard work.

We are thankful that Caydee will make a full recovery and that this won’t affect our long-term goals.

However, just one week later, we learned the sad news that Caydee had suffered an ankle injury in practice on March 19, causing her and John to withdraw from the competition.
