Belbin/Agosto Retire from Amateur Skating

The five-time US champion and four-time World medalist ice dancers have decided to call it quits after a very successful career, including a silver medal at the 2006 Olympic Games. Read Belbin and Agosto's official announcement. While I didn't care for them as much after their move to Pennsylvania to train with Natalia Linichuk and Gennadi Karponossov, I still strongly feel that the bronze medal at the recent Vancouver Olympics should have gone to this team. They will be missed!

In true fashion of retirement posts, here goes with some of my personal favorite programs from the team (oddly enough, most come in their first years on the senior circuit):

2007 Free Dance - "Amelie"

2002 Original Dance - "The Mask of Zorro"

2002 Free Dance - "Sarajevo" Selections by Goran Bregovic

2001 Original Dance - "More/Girls Girls Girls"

2001 Free Dance - "Alexandros"
