In ice dance, long-time national team member Josée Piché who, along with partner Pascal Denis, achieved a 17-year goal this year when they skated at the World Championships in Dortmund, also announced that she was hanging up her blades. Likewise, National Team member Tara Doherty, who skated with Tyler Myles, also decided to announce her retirement from competitive skating this year.
We wish all the best to these athletes in the future!
