Announcing their retirement after winning the figure skating pairs gold at the Games, China's husband-and-wife figure skating team of Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo said having a baby and holding a national exhibition tour for Chinese fans were now their priorities.

"We plan to participate in a figure skating exhibition gala in Beijing and other cities in China," said Zhao. "We will also invite some of the top figure skaters from other countries to join us for the exhibition to draw more fans. We want to help promote the sport in China, especially among young people."

After coming out of retirement to realize their golden Olympic dream, they say a baby is on their schedule, as well.

"We don't have an exact plan, but I think next year," Zhao said of a potential offspring.

To conclude a great career, 36-year-old Zhao was chosen as the flagbearer of the Chinese delegation at the closing ceremony.
