    Say,I was going through a website and found Rena Inoue lsted as doing Ladies Freestyle in 1991. I don't seem to remmber her AS a Freestyler. Does anyone know of any skating Competition pics of her from that far back? Thanks.

    Wasn't there some mention a while back of Rena being pregnant and due with a baby in November ? I think it came up in an interview with Tiffany Vise and John Baldwin. Anyone have any news?

    I don't believe there was a public announcement, but reportedly Rena had a baby girl in early November. :)

    They were awsome videos!!! I just watched them on my Mom's computer. As Webtv. won't handle it. Rena really skated well as a Freestyler. It makes you wonder why she even gave it up for Pairs (if indeed she had). Does anyone know if she skated Freestyle before or during her time with John? Besides the videos...are there any Photo Galleries of Skating showing her in Freestyle? I also notice that they were using the old Judging at the time. As for her Baby. Yes,she's a Mother now. Does anyone know any birth details (if indeed Skaters publicly release that), name,sex,date born,etc.? BTW. I also heard a while back that she's not skating anymore. Can anyone confurm this? Thanks.

    She was doing both pair and single until 1992 after that she was concentrate on single

    she competed single until 1998 ,she was 3rd year university student .
    For most of Japanese skaters it is reasonable time to leave competitive career.

    John ask Rena to be his partner after she decide to leave competitive career but she changed her mind.
    so she did not give up single for pair.
