    :eek: Wow! Congratulations to her and her husband!

    But on a purely selfish note... seeing as I distinctly recall a 13-year-old NNN grabbing silver at Nationals... dang, I feel old :wuzrobbed

    If I was Naomi, no WAY I would change my name! Naomi Nari Nam is one of the best names I've ever come across.

    Congratulations to Naomi and husband. I've always absolutely adored her.

    Phew! I can remember when Naiomi was mentioned in conversations with Sasha Cohen, the two were starting out, both yet to hit their stride. Sasha.....made some hits, made some skids, some diversions, but was otherwise always on the radar, even during her break from skating. Could never figure out what happenned to NNN, now NNNP. Time flies!

    PS- Change her name to Am I No Rain Man?

    Not sure if I would say that. She just got a lot of hype as possible competition. However, NNN finished 4th after the SP which Michelle won. That means Kwan would have had to finish 3rd or lower in the LP for NNN to win and Kwan won the LP with NNN 2nd. I don't remember the ordinals but I doubt NNN got even one ordinal over Kwan.

    She did fall in the SP and hit her head, hence the 4th place.

    Dick Button said she challenged Kwan, maybe that's what lucysk8 was thinking of.

    Naomi struggled with back injuries that ultimately lead to the end of her singles career. She came back later as a pair skater, even medaling at Nationals with Themi Leftheris. But again, injuries were too much and she had to retire for good. She coaches at Kwan's EWIP rink.
