    Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere (didn't see it in my quick search, please move/merge if I missed it). Filmed Feb 12, she's apparently training for an upcoming show. She looks like her old self again (YAY!) and to be in great shape and very happy--hope she stays healthy!

    Trust me. I was very afraid to click on this thread given the title. Had no idea what to expect.

    Glad it's something positive. I'll echo: she does look pretty good. Hopefully it's as clear to her as it is to us that one of the more likely paths to happiness and stability in her life runs through a rink. I wish her health and good fortune.

    YAYYYYYYYY! My Beautiful Bobek is Back!!! <3 She is looking so great and it's so wonderful to see that sparkling smile of her's back! This seriously brightens my day so much! She and Alicia Sacramone could easily pass for sisters, both are very talented, captivating, bubbly and beautiful. :encore::D

    I see she had some previous videos to show her progress. I wish her the best. She will always be one of my favorite all time skaters. I agree that the best thing about the video is that her wonderful smile is back! :)

    Brought a tear to my eye. This would be the comeback to beat all comebacks. I hope she hangs on to the dream of performing again and makes it a reality. I'd love to see that spiral. She was the first to have that outstanding extension. I remember the first time I saw it, my jaw dropped.

    She looks great in the video. I hope she continues to do well (and stays away from people who have been involved with drugs).

    Nicole looks so happy. I'm glad to see she has risen above her past troubles.

    Anyone know what she's practicing for? An exhibition or something?

    Obviously not.

    She looks fabulous. I saw her a few years ago in Vancouver...she's absolutely beautiful on the ice.

    At the beginning of the clip she says she's practicing for a show in April. I'd love to see her do a spiral again.

    I think the reference to having finished her "hours" probably referred to her court-mandated community service hours.

    I hope she keeps it together now. Fingers crossed.

    How do you deal meth and still not go to jail? Just asking. It's not like she hasn't been in trouble since she was a teenager.

    Jammers, please let's not rehash that topic all over again in this thread.

    Feel free to read through the old Bobek threads (ETA: There's a 21-page thread was locked but still in GSD.)

    I took that to be that she had finished work for the day.

    Thanks for posting the clip. She looks great and really happy. So nice to see.
