    I'm sad for them too. But it would have been close to impossible to better their 3rd place from last year.

    I'm sad about this news too. I really liked this team through the years, and loved their Olympic season programs in particular. Plus they trained in our area.

    I would have liked to see the FD again. Maybe they'll keep it as a show program, if they do skate in shows but idk if Federica's too injured for even that.

    They should have retired after last year! if they had, they would have gone out with a bang and not like this with a bad showing at Euros....

    The last time I saw this team live was when they volunteered their time to perform at a local benefit show here for a very sick little girl who's family needed help with catastropic hospital bills.

    I think they planned to go on 'til worlds, but Euros were too much a delusion..They and their fans hoped for a different results, since they're two time silver medalists and domnina-shabalin retired.
    But after problems during the GP-season, disappointing Euros, probably they decided to stop there and not-defend their world bronze (it'd have been very very difficult, with this year standings...)
    Sooo sad, hope to see them in shows and looking for Massimo's works in choreo!

    They planned to do just Europeans to claim gold and go out on a high just like Sarah Meier, although for Sarah it was unexpected but it made her career and the highlight of the championships.
