ETA: Armin wrote a personal message that was published earlier today in his Japanese fan blog (run by Kana), but it has since been removed and I'm told a new message will be posted for his fans in a few days.Hello Twitters! I am announcing that I will not be competing this coming season or for the foreseeable future. I am a full time CompSci...
student and I have many amazing plans for my future. I want to sincerely thank everyone who has supported me throughout the years and for...
some of the most amazing friends and fan a person could hope for. I wish everyone the best of luck this Olympic season and into the future.
A direct shoutout to Kana and everyone at @arminfcjpn for being so supportive in my career. You all have a dear place in my heart.
