    Thanks so much, skatesindreams! Was definitely a fascinating one to do - I have literally about a dozen more interviews & articles going up in the coming weeks before the Games. To say it's been busy blogging is an understatement! ;)

    The interview with Jeri Campbell was fantastic.

    It's important to know that skaters who "just miss" the top of the podium can have wonderful careers and make important contributions to the sport.

    I completely agree! Jeri's career, like so many others, is a PERFECT example of the fact that the best days of a skater's career can be those beyond their "amateur" days! She's fantastic.

    Thanks, skatesindreams! David was just a talented skater during his own career and I think it's fantastic to see he's remaining involved in the sport and will act as an official at the Olympics!
