I had hoped she would recover and compete again.

Not surprising but sad nonetheless :(
She never got to skate to her potential :(

This has been informed in the Finnish Skating News -thread, but sure, deserves its own thread, too.

Here is the video of a tv-program, where her retirement was announced today (http://areena-beta.yle.fi/ng/areena/tv/1461214)

Laura can be seen/heard in sections:
1:20 - 7:00 (interviewed at her parents' home, with her father)
11:40 - 16:15 (interviewed at her training hall, with her coach Virpi Horttana, both of them getting little teary eyed...)
19:45 - 23:20 (Laura on ice in the training hall, also interviewed)

Too bad but world bronze was a big accomplishment

Laura is and will always be one of my sentimental favorites
her jump arsenals may not be that high but her artistry, skating skills and presentation she has impressed me the most.

you will be missed beautiful Laura :(:(:(
good luck to your new life

That's really a shame. I loved her skating.

She never got to skate to her potential :(

Well, she came pretty close in the Olympics, with five triples (3T-3T, triple lutz, and two triple loops, just doubling the salchow) with a score of 126+. I'm sorry to see her go.

There is sadness in my heart.

All the very best for the future Laura! You were a beauty on the ice.
