Episode #46 of the Manleywoman SkateCast is up. I spoke with Yuka Sato while at the US Nationals in Greensboro. I was VERY nice of her to take time out of her busy schedule while she was t here coaching Alissa and Jeremy. She's so down to earth, and I really enjoyed hearing her perspective on having Olympians as parents, the whole backstage Tonya Harding/Josee Choinard timing at the 1994 Olympics, and her thoughts when Surya Bonaly took off her medal in protest at Yuka's winning the World Championships.
Interview here or through the iTunes Store.
She also gave me two photos of herself . . . one of her solo, and one with Jeremy . . . to give away to two lucky listeners. Neither photo is signed, FYI, but they are gorgeous. But if you want to enter, here are the details.
Thanks for listening, and please let others know about the interview!
