So can we compile a list of the skaters who are retiring after Worlds/this season?

^ I concur. Rachael Flatt. I know her leg was bothering her, but honestly, her leg was worse at Skate America and she had a much better skate there. I am sick of waiting for the US ladies to get their act together and get three Worlds spots back.

I would expect Mao, Yuna, Miki and Rachael to retire. But something tells me it's not going to happen.

I thought Miki had said something about taking next season off? I can understand that. She's been skating at the international level for 10 years, and could go out on a high note.

More importantly - are the Van der Corkells going to retire? Finally? :P

I believe this was Kevin's last competition but as far as I know Jenna wants another go at Olympics. Depending on her health obviously. Why shouldn't she, she's still the best we have by far.

I would be surprised if Mao retired - why go through this season of transition, reworking her jumps etc only to retire?

Does Alissa plan to continue? (Please do!)

On the pbp free skate thread it says that she does plan to stay another year, great news.

That is a good point. I just think it would take a tremendous effort to improve in a meaningful way at this point. If she can do it, :cheer2: and :respec:

Maybe Mao? At this point, I can't see her sticking around until Sochi. I know she's been reworking her technique, yadda yadda yadda, but honestly, she looked great in practice and then not-so-great during the actual competition. She's certainly not getting any help from the judges in regards to a world champion PCS boost.
