After watching her last week in Phoenix, there's no way she's ready to return to competitive skating. I think she did one small jump in each program. I expected more from a former World champion.

Sounds like she did more jumps than a certain Olympic Gold Medalist did in her recent shows. From what I've read, Kimmie just wants to do shows and doesn't expect to compete again.

^ that's the impression I got at the Weiss show as well.

Missing the feeling of competition and having the desire/drive to engineer a comeback are different things...and even if you have the latter, the body still must be up for it. She's done.

Kimmie is a great lady and certainly understands her limitations and strengths. I can't wait to see her in more shows.

Does she still go by Kimmie? She's got to be in her early twenties by now?

I always get impression from her interviews that she actually would love to be back on the competitive ice! While training for Vancouver she got back her triple axel and it was a fall on that jump that destroyed her knee and prevented from competing. Nevertheless, even if she recovers, it will be extremely difficult for her to get back to shape. I wish her all the best and would love the see her in competiton again.

If anyone is interested, here are my videos with her:

:cool:Currently, KM has no plans to return to competition. She is working on her triples in order to perform them in shows, and because she LOVES to jump!:kickass:

She will do a brief Canadian tour in December, and an official you tube channel is in the works. Hopefully it will be available soon (January)!

Just saw a little clip of her and she looks soooooooo improved from the last time I saw her skate. She did a credible 2a with nice runout. More than anything else, her fitness seems much improved.

I think Kimmie's style is comparable to that of Flatt's.

Except she said in that interview that she's competitive. (Which is what confused me. :lol:)

I don't think doing a few jumps over the course of several numbers is "competitive". It's fine for a show program but it's far from being competitive with elite athletes qualifying for ISU championship events.
