    Post-Worlds Retirements

    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?

    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?
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?

    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, and

    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.

    I suspect D/W. I would have also said V/M, but they probably don't want this to be their last season, since they practically didn't compete. And Worlds in 2 years are in Canada, so who knows. But D/W have achieved all there is, and with the Shibs coming up, it would seem like a good time to call it a career. And I'm sure both of them want to go back to school and finish their degrees.

    So you think they have absolute no ambition or hopes for Olympic Gold?

    I'm sure they do, but that's 3 years away. And with the Shibs coming up fast (and Sam/Bates), 3 years is a long time. I'm sure D/W don't want to go the way of B/A. Everyone wants to go out on top. This seems like a good time. Remember, they have their college studies and future career goals that have nothing to do with skating, and they are 23/24 and have been at this for a long time.
