I really miss Kimmie! She's the kind of young woman whom you want to hug and always wish well. She's so pretty, bright, and nice. I hope whatever the future brings her way that she is happy! :)

It's been filled by Alexe Gilles.

Gilles? I'm somewhat :huh: at that choice. What exactly did she do in the past year to earn that spot?

Gilles' Skate America assignment is also being discussed in the GP thread in GSD at the moment.

I'm not sure if Gilles will still have to compete at her Regionals (SW) in October. Skate America does give her a bye through Midwestern Sectionals to Nationals now.

It was most likely between her, Dobbs and Musademba for that spot. Given that Dobbs and Musademba compete the week before in China, Gilles seems like a logical choice.

Who would you have given the SA TBA to instead?

If you take a look at Nationals results and who already has two spots...

Senior Results:
1. Flatt - 2
2. Nagasu - 2
3. Wagner - 2
4. Cohen - not competing
5. Gao - JGP
6. Dobbs - 1 (China, the week before SA)
7. Liang - retired
8. Gilles - 2
9. Hughes - retired??
10. Czisny - 2
11. Zhang - 2
12. Bulanhagui - (competing @ Nebelhorn)
13. Bereswill - 0
14. Cesario - JGP
15. Diggs - not competing this season
16. Gong - JGP

Junior Results:
1. Zawadzki - 2
2. Siraj - JGP
3. Davis - JGP
4. Baga - JGP
5. Jiang - JGP
6. F. Zhang - Sr. Pairs at Nebelhorn
7. Wang - JGP

Dobbs also has a really good chance of getting Yu Na Kim's spot at Cup of Russia since she's the highest ranked skater by a good amount who only has 1 GP. Maybe USFS knows something that we don't (just guessing here).

Well. In that case, I guess they hadn't much of a choice, anyway.

I was going to say, why not send Dobbs but I didn't realize she was doing China a week prior.

Gush, gush... ;)


Anyway, her latest tweet indicates she is soon to be immersed in school and only briefly mentions skating on the side. I'm going to assume her school is the Michelle Kwan School of Vagueness, Tomorrow and Keep 'Em Guessing :cool: she'll be in good company with fellow students like Evan Lysacek, Sasha Cohen, Sarah & Emily Hughes, Yuna Kim, Irina Slutskaya and of course, the lady herself. :D

______________________

In all seriousness: I'd be surprised to see her in any kind of serious skating capacity. Sounds to me like she is a full-time student now.

I have hearsay :sekret: information that Kimmie is not planning on competing this season. I guess we'll have to wait until the qualifying season begins for an official confirmation.

^ I think this (http://twitter.com/kimmiemeissner/status/22895232973) is enough of a confirmation for me... *shrugs*

Min-Jung Kwak is scheduled to compete at CoC and SA in back-to-back weeks so I don't think there's any rule to avoid doing that. Further, SA is is Oregon, a quick plane ride from California where Dobbs lives, you wouldn't think it would be a big issue.

:( I wish Kimmie could have made some sort of comeback...like top 3 at nats this year.

Wasn't going to happen- if neither Cohen nor Hughes could do it...

I sort of doubt she's been seriously injured for the past 3 years, meaning, if she wanted to make a convincing comeback, she would have tried to already, especially last season when Olympic spots were on the line. I tend to think she's done for good. She skated in an ice show back in May and all she did were double axels, I don't think she's in proper form for a comeback anytime soon.

Kimmie has a US Championship and a World Championship, and she was 6th at the 2006 Olympics. If she's chosen to end her competitive skating career in favor of education, she should have no regrets.

I don't think Kimmie could ever be top three again (or expects to), but she strikes me as the type that might compete at nationals just for the heck of it and not to seriously contend for an Olympic or World team.

Then again, I suppose she probably doesn't want to or can't pay and train for it. Oh well. She had a good career for a few years at least.
