    Dear friends, I've been thinking about my life and future a lot lately and after consulting my coach and family, I decided to continue my competitive career until Sochi 2014. It won't be an easy challenge, therefore I hope you will keep supporting me the way you did through all of these years! Thank you. Love, Carolina" Carolina is now in Oberstdorf training and getting ready for the new season. She's looking forward to seeing you all in Verona on September 22nd for the show Opera on Ice 2012.

    I hoped she will and I'm really glad she does! She's one of the few very interesting lady skaters.

    I was already prepared that she would retire. Why give such statements then?

    she said after Nice that the chances were 50-50. I couldn't choose if I was her. Eventually she didn't want to regret anything I guess (like giving one last shot for the olympics)

    i´m not kostners biggest fan, but cudos to her for staying in the game for such a long time.

    as many mentioned before, maybe kostner will never standing on the top of the podium again, with her big rivals coming back and young rivals entering the game.

    but it´s really nice to see her stick around and may improve her olympic results before. her pcs will always keep her on the top, she needs to get her technical level back.

    Kim announces she will compete.

    Then caro announces she's unsure, only to decide a couple of days later she will compete.

    Someone's desperate for attention me thinks.

    She never announced that she is unsure in an official statement. The press collected those quotes from various interviews she gave post worlds where she stated that she hasn't decided about her future yet, and that the chances are 50/50 for her to retire.

    Now, the statement from today seems to be an official reaction to the articles spreading around the web last week.
