Updated Ladies List
Emily Hughes USA SB 50 (assume retired?)


She is still listed in the international selection pool, if a skater notified the USFSA they retired they would be removed. http://www.usfigureskating.org/Athletes.asp?id=447

I wonder if any of Kimmie, Sasha, and Emily (all on that list) are competing this season. They have likely decided already, since Sep 1 is less than a week away...

I don't think Sasha will compete. Kimmie may try to break back in (what's the status on her injury?) and Emily, I'm not sure. Emily was kind of out anyway and pretty much came back to try to make it to Vancouver.

You can't be serious. No way in hell was Emily going to make it to Vancouver. She had fallen too far off the international figure skating map to have any prayer of the USFSA sending her. She simply wanted to end her skating career on a better note than she did at 2008 Trophee Lalique where she had a disastrous performance and finish. She didn't want to go out that way. She and anyone else is highly delusional if they thought she'd step on Olympic ice again.

^Whoops, misunderstanding! No, I don't mean that she had a shot at Vancouver, but she really hadn't done anything for a few years and then she attempted a "comeback," coincidentally in an Olympic year.
I also think she expected to do better at Nationals than she actually did.

Well, she did beat Czisny and Zhang at nationals.

Actually, I remember reading a few interviews where Emily did say her goal was to make the Olympic team. I guess she is delusional. :lol:
Seriously though, I always got the impression that Emily thought she was a better skater than she actually was.

Well you never know what's going to happen at a nationals. Everyone could fall and she could have made it. Doesn't hurt to try.

Sasha and Christina Gao each fell once, and Amanda Dobbs and Alexe Gilles fell twice---still didn't help Emily, because they all finished ahead of her. Maybe if Emily hadn't had 4 URS and hadn't fallen twice herself, she might have had a shot.....

In the end she was closer than Alissa and Caroline were though, and those two were considered top contenders to make the team, at least theoretically.

Very, very true. In a lot of ways, her comeback of sorts was probably satisfying, but I do think that she had dreams of Vancouver...

^Ditto! I love Rachael and Ashley-I really can't wait to see what Ashley does this year. Also, can't wait to see Caroline. I get the impression that she's going to do something great this season.

She is going to need a consistent 3/3. Flip/toe or loop/toe and maybe also axel/toe for the lp.
