    You are more than welcome to! I haven't updated my blog in a while (just started a new full-time job, so it's hard to be on it and FSU during the day ). Will update it tonight for you!

    For those with access, the thread is now up in the U.S. Nationals forum.

    She's done a lot to earn the nickname "Reliable Rachel" - amazing how quickly a rep can be destroyed.
    I don't know why this name popped up but here it is, "Trixie Shuba"!

    Nope, it's Alissa.

    I took it last year at Nationals (it's from the short program). One of my faves as well...I have a large version of it framed.

    Kiri from today:

    Rocked out a double axel today! I'm definitely starting to believe I can skate well at Nationals even though I've been hurt.

    Kiri updated her journal on her website at FSO talking about her injury. Not where where to post it so, uh, figured I could put it here for now!

    Glad she's doing better! Going to totally root for her at Nats.

    Article on Kimmie Meissner, mostly about the Salute to American Skating show but a bit on what she's doing: http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/b...,7347049.story

    Meissner, 21, hasn't skated in competition since 2009, when a severe knee injury forced her to the sidelines.

    But the University of Delaware sophomore skates almost every day at Ice World in Abingdon and trains with coach Chris Conte. And she has remained active in ice shows and charity fund raisers, such as the Baltimore-based "Cool Kids" campaign that aids young cancer patients and their families.

    Does anyone have videos of her skating recently? I really want to see the improvement in her jump technique...

    Thanks for the clip. Not much jumping going on, but I'm totally at how much softness her skating has acquired. Never imagined her movement could be like this back when she won Worlds.

    I agree, I wouldn't have even guessed that was Kimmie. I gotta say it is a huge improvement for me.

    Long Island Newsday article (Dec. 25) on Samantha Cesario (she's been dealing with "inflammation around a disc in her back"): http://www.newsday.com/sports/cesari...nals-1.2569236

    Lansing (MI) State Journal article on Hannah Miller (Mids Novice gold medalist, age 14) that includes video: http://www.lansingstatejournal.com/a...0314/1001/NEWS
    (Her father, Kevin, was a pro hockey player who was on Team USA at the 1988 Calgary Olympics.)

    Baltimore Sun article on Allison Timlen (Easterns Junior gold medalist, age 15): http://articles.baltimoresun.com/201...-denise-cahill
    (I'm very glad to hear she's decided to change her FS - at Easterns I thought the music was too heavy for her.)

    I am cross-posting these article links in the 2011 US Nationals forum in Kiss and Cry (as well as on my blog's Nationals page).

    Yes, such nice, smooth skating.

    Everybody likes Kimmie - and I have heard that red dogs love her

    Does anyone else think it's a little odd that Cesario's goal at Nationals this year is to crack top 6? At least she's ambitious.
