November 15, 2006: "I guess everyone has realized, by now, that I have decided to quit eligible skating. I have taken my time to analyze the situation quietly and I have taken the final decision at the end of the summer.

The decision to retire from competitive skating has also to do with the fact that I think it is important to have a good feeling about what I have achieved throughout my eligible skating career, especially since I’ve been in this sport for 25 years. The last skating seasons were incredible from all points of view: I had some wonderful results and lived the experience of several Europeans, Worlds and of course of the 2 Olympic Games. This was only possible with long and hard work and the immense support of my wife and my daughter, my parents and a large group of people who helped with various aspects all through my career ever since the beginning and up until now. Of course your support, the fans, was very helpful especially during the difficult times and I would like to thank you for that.

In the near future I will stay connected to skating by coaching in Switzerland and as well by skating in various shows.

This being said, I wish to all my ex-colleagues - the competitors - a lot of luck and to all the skating fans a lot of fun.
