From the Canadian Press, "Last Hurrah" --

"A home world championship heading into an Olympic Games — it doesn’t get much bigger or better than that for Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.

But these worlds hold even greater significance for Canada’s ice dance stars, because they may very well be their last.

Virtue and Moir will be aiming for their third world title in March at what’s essentially their home rink in London, Ont., and then have talked retirement following the Sochi Olympics.

“There is a good chance,” Virtue said, about the possibility of London being their world finale. “I remember the Turin world championships after the Vancouver Games, we said we would probably never do a worlds after an Olympics again because it takes such a toll both physically and mentally." "
