Rochette will not compete at Sochi Olympics
Starting a new thread b/c I don't think she had said so definitively up until this point. (Sorry if I missed a previous news item.)
Joannie Rochette will have different role at Sochi Olympics
Sep 16, 2013, 1:07 PM EDT
Excerpt (see full text for more quotes from Rochette herself):
Joannie Rochette won’t be competing, but the Canadian figure skater who displayed tremendous courage in winning bronze in 2010 will still be at the Sochi Olympics. ... She hasn’t competed at a major national or international event since and will go to Sochi with Canadian TV broadcaster CBC and sponsor Visa.
She said the decision not to try for a third Olympic berth “just came naturally.”
