Vise and Trent Go Their Separate Ways

Senior pairs team Tiffany Vise and Derek Trent announced they have decided to end their partnership after six years together.

“We are thankful for the time and success we had as a team, and we will continue to support each other in the future,” Vise and Trent said in a wriitne statement. “We want to thank U.S. Figure Skating, our fans, coaches, families and friends for their wonderful support over the years.”

The team became the first pair to land a throw quadruple Salchow in international competition, at 2007 Trophée Eric Bompard, where they finished fourth.

This past season they finished fifth at both of their ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series assignments, Trophée Eric Bompard and Skate Canada. They were eighth at the 2009 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Cleveland, Ohio. They best finish at the U.S. Championships came in 2008, when they placed fourth.

Vise has formed a new partnership with Don Baldwin, who most recently skated with Jennifer Brunn. Vise will continue to train in Peoria, Ariz., under the tutelage of Jill Watson.

Trent has decided to retire from amateur skating and has relocated to San Diego, Calif.
