I hope this won't be another : I'm not retiring but I don't know when I will come back ala Cohen or Kwan ! lol

We should give Cohen a credit since she did come back and skate at the US Nationals, not like the other... I admired her for that.

Well, Kwan never said she was definitely coming back like Cohen did. All Michelle ever said was that she is keeping her options open.

And the Kween finds her way into yet another thread :rolleyes:

And now back on topic - I'm sad it looks like Joannie might retire though not surprised. I love her and her skating. I also don't think she's reached her potential and I'd love to see her skate another year or two to see what she can do now that a lot of the pressure is gone.

I don't want her to retire either. But I don't want her to step onto the ice if her heart is not in it. She's had a good career.

ITA! :):)

I really want her to keep competing because I love her skating so much. She has more potential, I think, to keep doing interesting programs and so on...

Me too, but I would understand if her heart wasn't just quite into it anymore-- or even if she just wanted to take a season off and re-evaluate her life. Such a tragedy can put many many things in perspective for her, and I'm willing to support her in whatever she chooses. Most of all, I just want her to be happy and take the time she needs to deal with her Mom's death.

I think that it sounds like she will retire. But I don't think the pressure is gone. She is the Olympic bronze medalist, and she is a perfectionist. So, she will always have pressure !

You keep the Kween out of our Joannie thread ! :lol:

I do get what you mean about the pressure, but surely she'll feel it less than last year heading into the Olys. I just think/hope she may give herself a little more space.
