    In case anyone missed it the first time around, SKATING magazine's blog had an extended slideshow of Evora/Ladwig photos as well: http://skatingmagazineblog.com/2012/...g-in-pictures/

    Amanda was one of 2 keynote speakers (Bob Beamon was the other) at an All-Area Stars Banquet honoring high school athletes in SW Florida on 5/20 - 2 articles:
    All-Area celebration speaker skater Amanda Evora found her voice on the ice
    It took Amanda Evora a little while to find her voice.

    When the 6-year-old first strapped her older sister’s pair of skates, she was still at the early end of years’ worth of classes to deal with dyslexia that made communication difficult and caused her father to push her toward more individual sports.

    Yet here she is, speaking tonight at The News-Press All-Area Stars Banquet two decades later as an accomplished figure skater fresh off of her first Olympic appearance.

    “When you make it to the Olympics, you never realize the other opportunities that come with it,” said Evora, 27, who is back at home in Bradenton. “It gives you a voice that people will listen to. It’s quite interesting, because I never really felt comfortable with public speaking.

    “It’s something that’s out of my element, but I think I have something to offer.”

    "Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden

    Amanda is such a sweet, wonderful person and such an inspiration. I wish her so much luck in the future with and without figure skating.

    Mark and Amanda have both been great role models both on and off the ice. Best of luck to them both!

    Mark Ladwig was at the PSA Conference this past Memorial Day weekend looking very nice in a business suit working at the Jackson Ultima booth in the trade show. Apparently he is a tech rep for the company now.
