Is Christy Ness ( Yamaguchi's coach) in that area?

Rachael Flatt is the real deal when it comes to student athletes. The 2010 U.S. Champion will enter Stanford University in fall 2011, a year after graduating Summa Cum Laude from Cheyenne Mountain High School in Colorado Springs, Colo.

So, she is going to defer. Well, it will be interesting to see how she does next year without spending time at/on school.

She probably needs time to adequately shop for a new coach and training facility. Stanford has to start in September or so, so if she moved immediately after high school graduation, she'd still only have a few months to adjust to the whole new life before the GP season. Smart decision from that aspect.

Interesting that she is waiting a year, I wonder if she'll end up regretting it. So will she stay with Tom for the next season or switch coaches now in order to be adjusted when she goes to college?

Congratulations to Rachael! Cheers for Debi, too, who must be thrilled! Taking a year off to skate full-time will give her a chance to experience that, and then she'll probably be able to look forward to college even more.

Congrats to the budding biologist, following in her parents footsteps.

Forgive my denseness (density??), but what does Debi have to do with Rachael, other than the Stanford connection? I thought RF's mentor was Dorothy Hammill??

Th 'connection' is rather weak, just that Debi became a Doctor after her skating career was over (actually she's a gynecologist, but this is her lunch hour), and it's pretty well given that Rachael will become a biologist.

I believe Debi is an orthopedic surgeon. Actually I would place money on it, since we discussed it at a Nationals several years ago. Who knows, maybe she changed fields, but she was always on track to going ortho.

Thomas is an orthopaedic surgeon, not a gynecologist.


In September 2007, Thomas joined the orthopedic staff at Carle Clinic Association in Urbana, Illinois.

I only recently became aware that her first marriage ended in divorce.

Dr Thomas's orthopedic specialty is hip surgery.
