DOES THAT SOUND FAMILIAR. KAETLYN OSMOND FROM EDMONTON, ALBERTA JOINS ME. WHAT DO YOU THINK WHEN YOU SKATE? A GUY LOVE PERFORMING I LIKE BEING OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ICE AND HAVE THE AUDIENCE AROUND ME AND JUST PERFORM. BRIAN YOU SAY YOU ARE NOT RETIRING. WE WILL TALK ABOUT THAT IN A MINUTE. LET’S GO BACK THIS WEEK. IT’S BEEN VERY BUSY FOR YOU. LET’S BEGIN WITH A JUMPSTART. THE CANADIAN TIRE PROGRAM THAT HELPS YOUNG PEOPLE. BOYS AND GIRLS AND GIRLS ACCESS EQUIPMENT AND SPORT. AND YOU TOOK PART IN IT.>>YES, ON THURSDAY, ALEX AND MYSELF. WE ALL GOT BACK ON THE ICE AND GOT TO HANG OUT WITH SOME KID. AND ABOUT 80% OF THEM HAD NEVER EVEN STEPPED FOOT ON THE ICE BEFORE. BRIAN I COULDN’T BELIEVE THAT.>>IT WAS AMAZING. AND THEY WERE ABSOLUTE NATURALS AND THEY LOVE BEING OUT ON THE EYE. BRIAN AND THE TWO CANADIAN TIRE DEALERS IN THIS AREA ORGANIZING THE PROGRAM. THAT WAS ON THURSDAY. WELL DONE, CONGRATULATIONS. LET’S TALK WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP. WE HAVE VIDEO. LET’S GO BACK TO MILAN, ITALY. TELL ME ABOUT IT.>>MILAN, IT FEELS LIKE A COMPLETELY OTHER LIFE. I WAS SO EXCITED TO BE THERE. IT DEFINITELY WASN’T EASY AFTER FOLLOWING AN OLYMPIC GAMES. IT WAS QUITE EXHAUSTING. I WAS ON THE ICE. AND I WAS ACTUALLY TERRIFIED FOR MY LONG PROGRAM. I WAS STARTING TO DOUBT MYSELF. AND SEE IF I COULD MAKE IT THROUGH. BUT ALL THE TRAINING WAS DONE. I JUST WANTED TO GET THROUGH THAT PROGRAM. THAT’S ALL I WANTED. AND EVERYTHING ELSE TO FOLLOW WAS JUST AN ADDED BONUS. BRIAN THAT WAS SPECIAL INDEED IN MILAN. NOW I SAID YOU ARE TAKING A YEAR O. YOU TAKING A YEAR OFF FROM THIS BUT NOT FROM SKATING. YOU HAVE BEEN PART OF THE THANK YOU, CANADA TOUR.>>THE THANK YOU CANADA TOUR STARTED. IT WAS SUPER FUN. WE GOT TO TRAVEL ACROSS CANADA AND HILL OUGHT THE SMALLER VENUES.

IN SWITZERLAND IN FEBRUARY AND BACK ON STARS ON ICE IN THE SPRING.>>TESSA TWEETED HERE YESTERDAY. THEY REALLY DO HELP, DON’T THEY, AND HELP THE YOUNGER SKATER, THE OTHER SKATERS, TESSA AND SCOTT. EVERYONE SAYS THEY ARE GREAT TEAMMATES.>>ANY ARE DEFINITELY AMAZING TEAMMATES. THERE’S A LOT OF DANCING INVOLVED IN THE FIGURE SKATING TOUR. AND DANCING DOES NOT COME NATURALLY TO ME. THAT’S FOR SURE. SO IT’S NICE TO HAVE THEM THERE AND GIVE ME A HAND. BRINE WHAT ARE YOU DOING NOW? YOU ARE TAKING THE YEAR O. YOU SAY YOU ARE IN ICE SHOWS. WHY ARE YOU DOING. THIS YOU HAVE HAD AN INJURY SHOW LAST TIME YOU TOOK TIME OFF. YOU ARE TAKE TIME OFF. WHY?>>LAST YEAR THERE WAS SO MUCH PRESSURE ON THE OLYMPICS AND WORLD’S. THE LAST FOUR YEARS WERE HONESTLY EXHAUST. I WAS SO EXCITED TO PERFORM AND DO ALL THE TRAINING THAT I DID LEADINGS UP TO IT. BUT IT WAS FOUR REALLY HARD YEARS AND DEFINITELY NOT A SMOOTH RIDE. SO IT WAS DEFINITELY FOR A MENTAL BREAK THIS YEAR AND TAKE THE TIME PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY FOR IT. BRINE SO NO RETIREMENT.>>NO RETIREMENT. BRIAN FINAL QUESTION. YOU GAVE ME YOUR THOUGHT ON WHAT YOU SAW HERE. TEARS IN THE WOMEN’S. EXPLAIN TO THE PEOPLE — YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVE.>>NO, I NEVER GOT TO WATCH THE SENIOR WOMEN’S EVENT BEFORE. I’M USUALLY DEFEATED IN IT AND USUALLY TOWARD THE END I NEVER HAD THE CHANCE TO SIT DOWN AND WATCH MY FELLOW COMPETITORS BUT TODAY I GOT TO SEE A LOT OF AMAZING HAPPY TEARS BUT ALSO REALLY SAD TEARS AND WATCH NAGY FEEL FOR THAT QUITE A BIT.
