Thanks for the link, Sylvia!
I have been to his shows and really appreciate what Mr. Weiss and his team have been doing to help younger skaters.

I also noticed that Armin's name is not on the list anymore?

Congrats to everyone who's on the list!

BTW, didn't the MWF used to have the age limit? I was a bit surprised to see Rockne's name here.

According to the website, (http://www.michaelweiss.org/criteria.htm) applicants are supposed to be under 18 unless they've been a previous award winner
