Czech figure skater Tomáš Verner has backtracked on his earlier decision to retire after the Sochi Olympics. In a statement released by his agent on Tuesday, the 28-year-old said he was going to compete at the world championships to be held in Japan next month. Verner finished 11th at the Winter Games; he was planning to take part in a series of exhibition events alongside Russia’s Evgeni Plushenko before retiring and completing his university studies. However, the Czech figure skater said that as the series was cancelled, he decided to postpone his retirement until after the world championships.
