    Well the chance she'll make it to the Senior Worlds/Olympic Team is like 1%. If I was her, I'd be looking for a strong male partner.

    I agree that Kiri's chances of "making it" in the US as a singles skater are slim. I think Pairs is the route for her if she wants to have a shot at the big time.

    Yeah that's what I think too, she also seems injury prone and pairs might help in that respect because most of her injuries have involved her ankle/foot and she wouldn't spend so much timing training the harder triples if she made the switch.

    goldseal11, if you ever come back to check this thread you started, someone posted a reply on 6/16 to your Angela Maxwell question in the earlier Angela Maxwell thread here: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...4&postcount=17

    If Drew's tweets are any indication, money is certainly not a problem for a jet setter like him. I'm almost convinced htat his full-time job may be tweeting. He's probably the most active skater in Twitter-land!

    ^^^^^^

    Yep. That's more or less why I really don't expect to see him back in competitive skating. I'll be happy if I'm wrong though.
