    Skaters Retiring in the US?

    After all the big bangs at Nationals, who survives?
    Yasmin Siraj? Lower and lower but still young.
    Rachel Flatt? School right?
    Caroline Zhang? Does she just love it? No coach right?
    Vanessa Lam? New and improved with new coach? I think 40+ points lower this year.
    Joelle Forte? Another just loves it?

    Rachael said her last competition was nationals. She had chronic back pains since 2011, got a stress fracture in her landing leg the same year (and competed on it!), a chronic injury in her right ankle that forced her to sit out of the entire 2012-2013 season post SA... and said she was proud of her final skate. She retired so she could focus on chemical engineering. I wonder what would've happened if she didn't have quite so many injuries, because I did sort of like her. She was a fighter.

    No clue about everyone else though.

    Has anyone heard anything further about Agnes Z's plans going forward? I know she was training with Mirai in Colorado, but have not heard if she was intending to stick with it.

    I think she's continuing with Tom Z. Mirai's looking for a new coach. They're both doing SOI.

    I haven't seen anything that says Agnes is doing SOI.
