Reigning World and European champion Carolina Kostner of Italy has no plans to finish her competitive career. The Italian ice queen shared her thoughts on this issue with La Repubblica.

A few days ago Kostner came to Rome to take part in Fiamme Azzurre (Blue Flames) ceremony of awarding the best athletes of the local figure skating school, which today is one of the largest in Europe. The Rome skating school has more than a thousand athletes.

“I’m not going to stop, although I understand clear that I will have to compete with very strong and young skaters,” Kostner said.

“After Vancouver Olympics in 2010 I got new strength to go ahead and now I get real pleasure from figure skating. I feel much freer. I was pleased to see here the girls for whom I am the example. Sport is a great school of life. Among other things he taught me discipline and punctuality.” she added.
