MANILA, Philippines – Ito na ang pagtatapos ng kasaysayan para kay Filipino figure skater Christopher Caluza.

Inanunsiyo ni dating national champion at Southeast Asian Games medalist ang kanyang desisyon na pagreretiro.

“I had a lot of thinking, as much as I would want to continue skating in front of people, I really don’t have the desire or motivation to keep training every day. The desire, excitement and thrill is just gone. And my body is also taking a toll if I keep going,” ani nito sa kanyang Instagram.

“As of now, I am officially announcing my retirement…AGAIN!”

Unang nag-quit sa kumpetisyon si Caluza noong 2014 at sinabing, “I was lost, I had depression, I temporarily went through a destructive path to which I felt helpless.”

Nagbalik sa kumpetisyon si Caluza noong 2019 skating season kung saan sinabi nito na mas handa siya ngayon. “I fell in love with skating and I wanted to show people why I love to skate. And more importantly to prove to myself that I was stronger than I think,” hirit nito.

Pinasalamatan ni Caluza ang lahat ng sumuporta sa kanyang career. Sa ngayon, pinaplano pa ni Caluza kung ano ang susunod na hakbang matapos ang pagreretiro.

“I am planning my future and I know where I want to go and I know I can accomplish anything. But don’t you worry, I’m not done with skating, I’m done with competing, so you haven’t seen the last of me. I will be back in another shape or form.”

Nagwagi ito ng silver medal sa 2019 edition ng Southeast Asian Games na ginanap sa bansa.JC
