Robin is not that old. Hongbo Zhao was 36 when he won his OGM so Robin can go a couple of more years he is far healthier than Zhao was unless he has had surgeries he didnt tell us about. Aliona is about Trankovs age and is healthy as well and is still one of the best pairs in the world so I dont think its a stretch they continue for a while. Teams dont have to end their careers after the Olympics they can retire in 2016. In reality, theyve been to 64 competitions and they've won 60 medals. I know theyre disappointed with two bronze medals at the Olympics but being two falls away from silver medals is not bad; most teams will never come close. Even some who get Olympic medals will never leave the legacy they already have left. I hope they give it time and make the wise choice but I do hope they skate worlds and come back for at least two more years not with 2018 in mind but just with a renewed joy for skating.
