    I think she did, she is coaching now, IIRC.

    Yeah... figure skating(and individual sports in general) are cruel that way...

    We lucked out with relatively few retirements after Vancouver; at least some of the skaters mentioned might have left then. Post-Sochi will definitely be tough, even with new and exciting skaters coming up the ranks.

    Here's how Emily Samuelson ended her public statement last June: http://www.facebook.com/notes/emily-...50959989667626
    I'm so incredibly grateful I had this chance to come back and compete with Todd, and had an amazing time doing it! I'd love to still skate, for I feel I'm not done with this sport yet, I'm just not sure if it can be in a competitive manner. However, regardless of what happens, I know I will be fine. Everything happens for a reason, and I know that God has plans in store for me that I cannot even comprehend yet. I am excited as to what the future holds, and extremely blessed to have had such an amazing career in skating thus far!
