Looking forward to Kurt's program,
Whatever he does will be worth watching.

His blog entry just got me more excited for MWO! It'll be great to see how skaters of 6.0 generation feel and adapt to new system. Kurt gives a lot of insight for it!

Doug was able to get Brian Orser to land a triple axel at the age of 40

Was this filmed?

Was this filmed?

I think so? I remember he landed one at the Goodwill Games in 2000 (which were televised) and I'm pretty sure he was around 40.

Kurt's performance to Singing in the Rain is a classic. I really look forward to see the new version. Will they make it rain in the stadium for him?

I hate hate hate Singer in the Rain, no matter who skates it. Ditto 'Smile and the world smiles with you', whatever the name is. . .

The good news to me is that Honda and Candaloro will compete again. That's very cool.

ETA I met Honda at the 2010 Olympics in the smoking section outside the arena. He was covering the event a Japanese broadcaster. He was smoking quite seriously (1 or 2 in a break) and looked a bit heavier than he was as a competitor. So it will interesting to see how he reinvents himself for this comp. Ditto Candaloro and Yagudin. I'm rooting for Candaloro and Honda - hope we get access to the competition.

Without hearing this news until now, I was watching Kurt's Singing in the Rain performance online yesterday and was thinking that it would be great to bring it back for the Medal Winners Open. Great minds think alike!

*fangirl squealing* BEST. PERFORMANCE. EVER!!

Kurt's performance was amazing! The set, the rain, the skating...PERFECTION! I don't know that the program will be as awesome without the set and rain and everything, but I'm so excited to hear he'll be revisiting that one!

The US Adult Figure Skating Committee posted about this on their Facebook page, with a headline to the effect of "Kurt returns to competition" - and when I saw it, my first thought was that Kurt was going to compete in adult competitions :eek:

I must admit that when I read the story and saw he was competing in a different kind of event, I was relieved for my fellow adult skaters who would have had to compete against him.....

Well the great Midori Ito didn't win her category at Adult Nationals so you never know ;)

She didn't win her category at the ISU *international* adult competition (I don't know if Japan has adult nationals).
