Who do you see ending their amateur career AFTER nationals? Olympics? What we we likely see based on predictions, costs of skating, age, future professional contracts? I esp would like to know who will be left in pairs? Do Marlie plan to end after Oly regardless of outcome?
I am speaking of Americans only but maybe a world thread will be of interest. I don't know anyone's plans, but expect many, maybe half to quit. Info? And do you think anyone should retire?
I think Alissa plans to. Also Jeremy. I think both have more chances to skate in Asian Shows. I think Jeremy has great elegance, seems very sweet. He and Alissa would be good with young skaters if coaching interests them. I love Mirai and just watched her Oly sp. I remember thinking she'd be a WC. I don't think she'll make the team. I think they think Agnes has more of a future, but with all the money keeping them going, that could go for education, as a "parent" type I'd want my kids to have a future. I am guessing many will pull a Nobi. He quit skating despite being undermarked, but he is a parent. Who will be left> Who has already announced their plans? TY.
