Thanks, I appreciate it!

I also might do some tweet-analysis of the ladies leading up to Nats. (you can find it under my username- Homepage). If it comes to it, I hope you don't mind if I use your links for reference.

You are more than welcome to! I haven't updated my blog in a while (just started a new full-time job, so it's hard to be on it and FSU during the day :P). Will update it tonight for you!

For those with access, the thread is now up in the U.S. Nationals forum.

Well, I suppose we'll see what she is made of at Nats. She could either take the naysay and use it as motivation to blow everyone away, or she can lose confidence in herself, her scoring ability and fold.

She's done a lot to earn the nickname "Reliable Rachel" - amazing how quickly a rep can be destroyed.

I don't know why this name popped up but here it is, "Trixie Shuba"!

Nope, it's Alissa. :)

I took it last year at Nationals (it's from the short program). One of my faves as well...I have a large version of it framed. :)

Some Kiri Baga updates:


Alright people, it's time for a great week of cardio, yoga, and single jumping! Building up after my injury. :) feelin' good.


Lots to do, lots to do. I'm so glad Christmas break is right around the corner! And I'll be doing doubles on Monday people! YAY!

And...


I always knew Alissa was a champ! :) yay Alissa! Her skating screams senior lady, I love it.

She has good taste! :)

Kiri from today:


Rocked out a double axel today! I'm definitely starting to believe I can skate well at Nationals even though I've been hurt.

Kiri updated her journal on her website at FSO (http://www.figureskatersonline.com/kiribaga/) talking about her injury. :) Not where where to post it so, uh, figured I could put it here for now!

Glad she's doing better! Going to totally root for her at Nats.

Article on Kimmie Meissner, mostly about the Salute to American Skating show but a bit on what she's doing: http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/bs-sp-meissner-tv-skating-special-20101222,0,7347049.story


Meissner, 21, hasn't skated in competition since 2009, when a severe knee injury forced her to the sidelines.

But the University of Delaware sophomore skates almost every day at Ice World in Abingdon and trains with coach Chris Conte. And she has remained active in ice shows and charity fund raisers, such as the Baltimore-based "Cool Kids" campaign that aids young cancer patients and their families.

Does anyone have videos of her skating recently? I really want to see the improvement in her jump technique...

Thanks for the clip. Not much jumping going on, but I'm totally :eek: at how much softness her skating has acquired. Never imagined her movement could be like this back when she won Worlds.

Yes, quite the 180, no?
