This was predictable.. but it broke my heart when I saw the news... Glad we will still see her in shows. Good luck for the rest Kiira !

Kiira is one of the skaters I remember from my childhood. I can't say I was a fan of her, but it's sad to see all these names I recall disappear from the starling lists. Very few skaters like these are left.

I wish her success and happiness in her future. Its never easy leaving something you love for a new beginning and she's amazing for all that she has done in her career. :points:

Please do! Thanks for the links! The way she is gliding over the ice is unreal. What a pity that injury was not treated right from the start - we might have still enjoyed Kiira's competitive skating... sigh

Thanks! But unfortunately, these are not so great - lighting was not good for photography during the opening show... :-/

But here they are anyway, such as they are :-D

According to latest news in Finnish tabloids Kiira is moving to New York with her boyfriend. She confirms that also in a radio interview here, where she talks about her skating career, reasons why she quit among many other things (the interview lasts 56 minutes!). In the interview her sister Petra talks about Kiira's personality, former manager about her relationship with publicity and media, and Laura Lepistö about Kiira as skating colleague/competitor. Both the article and the interview are in Finnish.
