    What a wonderful interview with Kristi!

    She is such an accomplished, classy person,
    It would be fabulous if she would learn the ice dances/take the tests, someday.

    Getting Up And Saying No (Part 1). Part 1 of a 2 part discussion looks at the courage and the impact of Jeremy Abbott's courageous performances at the Sochi 2014 Winter Games through exclusive interviews with his mother Allison Scott & sister Gwen Abbott Asmussen. It also begins a discussion on bullying, social media & a bigger issue in the figure skating community: http://skateguard1.blogspot.ca/2014/02/getting-up-and-saying-no-part-1.html

    Great article. I love that Jeremy stood up against it in public. Now he has my respect more than ever. Ah.. his mom's comment re 'glove off blogging' is interesting.

    Thanks, spikydurian! I love that Jeremy did as well and applaud Mao for doing the same. The more skaters stand up and say "no" to this ridiculousness the better. I'd rather see them skate their best and not have to be bombarded with negativity constantly! That's just me.

    FYI to all of you... my interview with 1992 Olympic Silver Medallist Paul Wylie is coming next week!

    Thank you very much for the the commentary about bullying; and for supporting Jeremy so strongly.
    These "absusers" (many of whom should know better) who torture so many people, have no idea of the long term damage they cause.
