Retirement Updates

New, 3 comments

Olympic years tend to bring with them many skater retirements.  Here are some of the skaters/pairs that have retired or broken up in recent weeks:

Beatrisa (Bebe) Liang:  Longtime Frank Carroll student hyped at one point as the next big thing.  Never quite lived up to that potential but was a regular on the Grand Prix and nationals circuit. (via Figure Skaters Online)

Brooke Castile and Ben Okolski:  2007 national pairs champions.  They haven't been able to recapture that glory but made a valiant effort to snag the second Olympic slot at this year's Nationals.  They had a truly beautiful and graceful presence on the ice. (via Figure Skaters Online)

Last month ice dancers Khokhlova and Novitski split due to Novitski's retirement.  Khokhlova is trying out with other skaters but it is unclear who her new partner will be. (via Wikepedia)

We already mentioned here that Kim Navarro and Brent Bommentre are retiring.  I'll let you know if I find anyone else.
