    I am electrified from shock. So sad to see one great figure skater retire.

    Thank you so much for your contribution to the sport, Mao. Good luck on all your endeavours in the future.

    For me she will always be the queen. For her I became a fan of skating. For her I cried, I laughed, I got excited, I got angry, I lied at work and school to see her compete (oops), I did not sleep to watch her to compete. For her I went to see my first live competition and I almost died frozen in the attempt, Colorado winter is not a joke. I think she gave everything, and she owes nothing at all. The only thing I regret is that I feel she always gave a lot more than she got from figure skating. Now I hope that being more relaxed can continue showing her beautiful skating.

    I'm sorry if I'm being very melodramatic, since I know she's not dying but this news is horrible for me.

    I am sad to hear this but I'm sure Mao has her reasons. Fingers crossed we'll still see her lovely skating in shows.

    I am fortunate to have seen her skate last year at Worlds, glad I got to see this skating icon in person.

    I can't believe it. I know the writing was probably on the wall for Mao but I was so hoping she'd make one last run for the Olympics.

    Thank you Mao for your beautiful skating, the 3A and a wonderful career that I very much enjoyed following from afar. I wish for you every happiness and great success in all of your future endeavors.

    I can't really say it was a shock, but I am SHOOK.

    I'm so glad I got to see her at Skate America this season. Even if her jumps weren't completely there, I will never forget being mesmerized by her step sequences!
