The annual Canadian national team camp is today and tomorrow, featuring the top 5 finishers from the 2011 nationals, as well as some others who were given GP assignments. Skate Canada is posting some photos on its twitter account. Did anyone find any other info from the camp?

Are these videos geo-blocked?
I don't know if they won't load because I'm in the US or because I'm using an iPod?
Don't have access to a desktop right now so I can't check.
I just really wanna see Kevin Reynolds' interview!

They're not geoblocked -- I'm in the US and was able to watch.
