    This is one of the unfortunate consequences of having so much emphasis on quads- the men who really have trouble with them like Armin struggle to keep up and sort of get chanced out of the sport. He is a great talent and did what he could to get better, but quads were not his thing and it seemed to end up having a detrimental effect on his overall consistency. It's a shame he's finishing on a bad note with his Nationals finish last season, but who knows if it would have gotten any better this year. I enjoyed watching him skate and he should be very proud of what he accomplished.

    Very sad news for his fans (like me!) but all of my best to Armin!

    His performance at Skate America in Portland was a high point of that weekend. Best wishes for his future!

    I also want to give to the Dr Who LP. I just wish he had the opportunity to skate it all out.

    Best of luck to Armin. I've enjoyed watching his skating these past years. He's been a wonderful role model and has provided fans with some memorable moments on the ice. Most of all, Armin seems to be a bright, engaging and caring young man. I hope he feels very proud of all that he has accomplished and that one day he might continue to be involved with the sport in some capacity. It would be great to see Armin skate in a show with Mao! His piano tributes to Mao were so thoughtful:

    It would be cool if manleywoman or Jenny and Dave could interview Armin sometime soon.

    Funny tweet seat with Armin:

    It would have been great if he got one worlds. I am glad he got to compete at Four Continents and has a senior grand prix medal. He was good.

    I hope Armin reads this thread. So many eloquent posts all with the same message: respect for his choices, admiration for his skating, fond memories of special performances, and recognition of his intelligence and his grace.

    Armin, I hope you have continued success and happiness in all you do. Good luck!

    I'm glad he's chosen the path he wants to follow, but I will miss his skating. I was very impressed with both of his performances at Skate America in Kent.

    I always liked Armin and thought he had a lot of promise as a skater. It's good that he has a new career direction, though, and best of luck to him.

    I loved watching him skate so much and, like others, always wished for him to have that break through! I also loved saying his name out loud every time he competed. Weird I know - but there are some words that are just fun to say and his name is one of them!

    Oh, I will miss him so much! Always a pleasure to watch/talk to him @ Mike Weiss' shows (first time we saw him 9/05 he had braces on his teeth) & @ Liberty, but I wish him all the best in his future plans.

    It took me a long time to master pronouncing his last name, but I loved saying it & letting my local fellow skating fans know about him & his talent.

    The ice will always be there for him if he ever chooses to revisit it! If he's making a choice that's bettering his life, great for him! )

    I will miss Armin's skating, as well. I've been a fan of his skating, expression and originality for years. Thank you, Armin, best of luck on new paths!

    I really loved his skating and his style. Wish he could have gotten those bigger jumps. I think he had chosen Dartmouth, but then he decided to wait to go to college. Anyone know where is he going to school?
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
