    She tweeted this just now:

    Good luck to her. I was wondering what she was up to and if she'd try competing in the Canadian qualifying system again.

    Ditto! :) I recall when I first saw her skate at Nationals a number of years ago I said "aha, she looks like movie star Carole Lombard" (the 2nd wife of Clark Gable)! And her triple jumps were HUGE. I'm sad to see that it never quite worked out for her on the competitive level, but this Disney on Ice opportunity is totally AWESOME! :respec: And on the heels of that other skater who landed the role of the Frozen character. :)

    I am also sad that Alexe never had the competitive success she might have wished for.
    However, this new opportunity sounds ideal!
