Yes, Jenni seems to have made the decision of not skating competitively any more:wuzrobbed:fragile:

She surely knows how hard it is to compete on the top. I wish her the best of luck in life, but I am still heartbroken.

Jenni Vähämaa says in her official website that she has decided not to continue her active career as a figure skater. She will focus on school and might even compete in sports, but not as an elite athlete.

It is sad but before the decision she learned to enjoy skating again.

Great memories will live for ever:
- Jenni twice 4. in the Junior Worlds
- Jenni as a surprise winner in Finlandia Trophy (She was 15 and it was her first senior competition!!!)
- Jenni 10. in Europeans (15 yeas old)
- Jenni as a good skating friend (f.ex. to my daughter)
...

It is not easy to make a come back even if you are young. Jenni will be 18 next month. Yes, only 18!!!

:fragile: about Jenni. I hope she's happy with whatever else she decides to pursue in life!

It will be interesting to see who gets the the 3rd spot Finland has for Europeans now. Alisa Mikonsaari, Minna Parviainen are still coming back next year and I think Beata Papp shoud be age eligible. Are any of the other junior skaters moving up to seniors?

Cecilia Törn perhaps (I don't know her plans).

What about Beata Papp? Her DOB is 04/22/1995 so she will be age eligible for Euros and Worlds this season. I really like her skating but her scores always seem to be a bit low :(

Oh no. :( I was so looking forward to seeing her skate next season! Wish her the best though.

Sorry, I don't have time to translate, but even the article admits how far-fetched the idea is. :P :rolleyes:

I have a feeling Vahamaa may just change her mind in a couple of years, without the stress of trying to get in shape she may just find herself in a better position.


Poykio will be sorely missed! :(

ANy word on Elina Kettunen or Alisa Drei these days?

They are both coaching young skaters. :cool:

Elina is married. She is now Elina Järvinen and she has two small kids!!! :D
