So, Bryce is back on the ice ... Can I interest him in our national pairs lady champion? :shuffle:

I heard that Bryce is looking to get into coaching. Apparently he isn't healed enough to skate competitively:(

Not a surprise. I figured that was a career-ending injury. I suspect Dube thought the same thing and that's why she found a new partner when she did.

Probably a smart choice for him when you look at the big picture. There isn’t much information out there about adult osteochondritis dessicans, but the rehab protocols I’ve seen for surgical intervention suggest a return to impact sports at 12 – 16 months post-op (assuming good healing). So, even if he was healing normally it’s very likely he’d miss the entire upcoming season. 25 years old, 2 years MIA from the national/international scene, starting over with a new partner….not favorable conditions for a return to top 6 in the World. He’ll make a wonderful coach, especially if he continues his education in the sports medicine field. Is he looking at joining the coaching staff at KW?

BTW, I've posted the links to the Zhang/Zhang blogs (parts 1 & 2) in the Chinese skating/skaters thread in GSD: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=79412

Pj's latest blog is about Patrick Chan and his quad Salchow (includes a youtube link of him talking about landing the 4S in practice recently):

Great blog, I was more interested in Patrick's description of his new free program and can't wait to see. It's good to see Patrick's not resting on his laurels and is expanding his technical repertoire and challenging himself artistically.

I hope he debuts the new free during his trip to China for the Artistry on Ice shows. Patrick tweeted today that he's on his way to China for 3 weeks.

If Patrick becomes as consistent with that quad salchow as he is with the quad toe, I can't see anyone being able to catch him.

Can someone please clarify- is Patrick's fundraiser for himself?

Yeah, but he's keeping "Take Five." Which, despite how much I enjoyed it, I'd rather he didn't.

He's keeping a program again? :rolleyes:

I also can't wait to find out what his LP music is!

Take Five again? I guess keeping it makes sense, as it scores well and the off-season is shorter, but I was really hoping not to see it again.

Take Five
Phantom of the Opera
Tango de los Exilados
Four Seasons

I have to admit I don't get the repetition, but whatever works.
