:rolleyes: It's true this doesn't seem like a "Stampede" sort of thing.. except, every event wants every draw it can get , and Tessa & Scott would probably cause a stampede for tickets anywhere in Canada right now...;)

A Celebration for Tessa and Scott in London is to be expected (and likely a lot of fun), but I'm interested in the Olympic celebration. London seems a bit small for a more general celebration of Olympians, unless there are other Olympians from the London area besides V&M.

How do you think, guys, will Tessa and Scott be happy to see in there group Kholova-Novitsky? Its look, like Igor and Marina choose music to this new team. And Fedor said he talk about this only with Meryl by phone - she is happy for him.

Christine Nesbitt (gold medallist in long track speed skating) is from London and I think there might be a hockey player from the area. That's all I know about though.

One article I saw mentioned some of the Beijing athletes from London would be there too. The only one I remember is Adam Kreek (rower who won gold in the men's 8+) because I think he's really hot. :P

They're just out of childhood, for heaven's sakes.

What else is there to say so far, except here are two kids who were teamed up early on, they dedicated themselves to skating for the next.... years and then they won the Olympics.

I guess I should wait to see it, but my first reaction isn't to be thrilled. At least I hope there are lots of good pictures.

On a positive note, Steve Milton is the author. He's really passionate about skating.

Wow, I wasn't expecting a book... I'm glad the author working with them looks good though.

I think sometimes people forget that although the 2 of them are young -they have still done all the things along the way that it takes to earn an Olympic Gold Medal. They just started earlier than most as a team in a system that allows for faster advancement and thus were able to get to the gold medal sooner - or younger at least.

I am surpised- but pleased and look forward to reading about their journey thus far.

How do you think, will this book be sold outside Canada?

I know that while they're still young and have "only" been seniors internationally for 4 seasons, they've put in many years of hard work and sacrifice to get to where they are today. For me, I don't find myself forgetting everything that they've done along the way, I forget how young they actually are.

My surprise was more that they seem to be pretty private people so I wouldn't have expected them to open up in a book. I know they're not the type to put out some kind of tell-all but in a 200+ page book they're going to have to say more than we typically get in articles and interviews.

I'm pretty sure Amazon ships internationally.

Skating books are fun, no matter how old or young the skater is. :) I'm sure their book will be an enjoyable read.
