    Yes, according to her FB/this article, this was her last nationals: http://gazette.com/ramsey-rachael-fl...rticle/1512416

    I was saddened that the broadcast didn't breathe a word about Rachael. Didn't air any of her skating. Not one acknowledgement. I know she's been out with injury, and that she didn't skate her best, but she was a prominent skater for 5+ years (on the senior circuit alone). Oh well. Rachael seems very much at peace, and she will certainly find great success in her life.

    Pechalat/Bourzat said that Olympics will be their last competition and they will be retiring afterwards regardless of the result.

    Yeah, I thought it was an inglorious send off to a more deserving gal. Well, for those who missed it, here is her short program: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOAAtKDTLRU

    She skated with a real passion and seemed to be much more into her performance than she has been for a long time.

    Still, what kept going through my mind as I was watching this was: 'Obertsdorf Adult/Masters Competition'

    I have never been a fan of Rachael, but I respect her hard work.

    She skated with real passion in Boston and it was nice to see her really skate with abandon.

    Also, she had two of the most beautiful costumes.

    Good luck Rachael. I'm sure she'll be super successful in whatever she does.

    Rachael wants to be an orthopedic surgeon. I am sure she will and become the first orthopedic surgeon with a nice personality.

    I wonder what will happen with Christina and Agnes. I suppose both of them will have to take some time to recover from what happened but I would suppose both will continue with College. Wonder what Sam will do? All the ladies are young enough for 2018, they might take some time off then try in 2016 to make the team.

    We will likely lose Carolina, Yuna, Mao, Akiko, Korpi,etc this year. And Leonova will de facto be pushed out in the next quad. Alot of new faces probably

    Carolina Zhang too - I wonder if she will retire.

    For men Jeremey is retiring as is Dai

    Korpi says she wants to go for 1 more year post-Sochi and then retire. She obviously won't be at Olympics or Worlds this year. Still, she seems to spend more time battling injuries than skating, so that may not even happen

    Davis and White were pretty clear this was their last year.

    I expect Gao is done.

    What do Denny and Coughlin do? I don't think they will be able to stay on top for 4 more years. Heck Haven could overtake her by then
