This is wonderful news. I hope he can make a good living with skating and continue as long as he is healthy.
A very special skater. That is what Ilya Klimkin was/is. His Apresmidi d'un Faun was one of those rare classic moments in figure skating It went beyond competitive skating. I wish someone would put it up on youtube.
