    sad to hear - the article sounds like a farewell to me (though of course i know he's not ruling out the possibility of competing at Euros in 2015). He's right in being satisfied with what he's achieved!

    Well, that's depressing. I was hoping to see him again - preferably with an original program or two.

    It's good that he remains involved in skating, and I hope he'll have much success in the future.

    That is too bad. I've always found his skating and music on the quirky side - sorta like a Scandinavian Ilia Klimkin. But guys like him keep it interesting. Sorry about his back.

    What a shame!

    Good health and best wishes to him.

    What Rex said. I'm glad to read that he's keeping involved as a coach (at least for now) - hopefully he can encourage his students to carry on with the quirk

    This is really sad - for him, and for us, figure skating fans, who enjoyed watching his programs. His special style brought something different to competitive skating.

    That's a depressing news. He has his own style and I enjoyed his performances so much. Best wishes to him.

    Rex - you captured my sentiments perfectly.

    It's always a shame when a skater is forced to stop competing due to injury, but I hope that he will find equally fulfilling activities, whether within the sport or in other arenas.

    Such a shame that he can't compete. Such an interesting and innovative skater. But I think he will make a very creative coach.
