After eight years together, veteran ice dancers Lynn Kriengkrairut and Logan Giulietti-Schmitt have announced their retirement from competition.
"As much as Lynn and I love skating, and probably would continue on as long as we could go, there are a lot of things we want to pursue outside of skating," Giulietti-Schmitt said. "We decided that since we gave it our all for the Olympic year, that ultimately some of our priorities have shifted."
Kriengkrairut is applying to medical school and hopes to enroll in the fall.
"I'm interested in neurology, orthopedic surgery or reconstructive surgery, but a lot could change once I go to school," she said.
Giulietti-Schmitt has been the Basic Skills director at the Ann Arbor Figure Skating Club, and plans to continue coaching. He also wants to go to graduate school and hopes to study environmental remediation or urban planning. (He has a bachelor's degree in geology from Eastern Michigan University.)
