Delmore throws in the towel

Today Derrick Delmore announced that he is retiring from competitive singles figure skating.

Derrick's biggest achievements have been his 1998 World Junior Title and the fact that he's had eight top ten finishes at U.S. Nationals.

Delmore has not ruled out competing next season, but says it would be in paris skating. Delmore, in his early career skated pairs with Alix Clymer and Crystal Kim. "I would love to have the opportunity to compete in pairs again before I end my competitive career altogether," Delmore said.

Delmore also enjoyed one of the longest skater/coach partnerships, he was with Shirley Hughes for 21 years.

Good luck Derrick...on whatever path you choose!
