Just saw on the Aussieskates facebook page that they will be reporting from Saitama Japan for 2014 Worlds. Very excited!

Tripping on the Podium
I've heard from a reliable inside source that they're leaning more towards retiring, but haven't made a decision yet.

Ohh. I hope they decide to stay for a bit longer... I completely understand if they retire (funding and all that), but they've improved so much and they're a joy to watch! Even if they don't stay on a full quad, it'd be lovely to see them for a few more competitions, at least (and maybe that would give Australian ice teams more time to develop etc? On which note, I really, really hope that Kim Hew-Low can find another partner as she and Cameron were quite promising junior ice dancers. I know she's training in the US and looking for a partner...)

I completely understand if they do not want to go and do another whole olympic cycle. It is a very long time to wait and Australia is home to them. Their Olympic Story is one that fully embodied the Olympic Spirit. Both of determination in the face of dissapointment and defeat and rising above to not only have the performance of their careers but one that will be written in the Australian Winter Olympic History books.
In saying that, from the programs they produced, I am wondering whether they may still have something in them that we haven't seen yet that would be great if they brought it out onto the ice. The question will be answered in Saitama. If they do really well there, i have a feeling that they might get the hunger to do one or two more seasons. Imagine if they could get a grand prix spot- that would be grand!

Also, great to hear that there are more pairs teams on the cards and an up and coming dance team.
