I do, however, think it is difficult for skater's to give up on their dream. It is something they have worked so hard for, and just giving it another year or two could make the difference for them. And even if she doesn't want to leave the rink, she could without a doubt earn money coaching. I know not all skaters make good coaches, I've taken a lesson from her, and she's soft spoken- so she'd have to work on that and be a bit more aggressive, but she knows what she's doing and is a good teacher. And even if she isn't a fabulous coach- her notoriety alone could earn her a living as "take from famous coach" until she transitions into something else.
