    Good for her. We don't know what the future holds but I'm glad this one setback isn't deterring her. I hope she is able to get back on track next season.

    This morning at a coffee shop in Bloomfield Hills, Czisny sat with her laptop answering emails and reading comments posted about her on a figure skating Web site. A former two-time U.S. ladies champion (2009 and 2011), Czisny said she’s grateful; most of the posts have been supportive.
    I guess it's not FSU she's reading

    To be honest, if I were a skater, I wouldn't read FSU either after an experience like Czisny's.

    Good for her. I hope she reclaims her US title next year, and I'm glad she was at least offered WTT.

    Good for her. I wish her all the best next season and hope she comes back stronger than ever. But whatever her results, I admire how she carries herself with grace even in difficult times.

    Some posters (coughNEIIIIIIGHcough) were malicious, but it seems to be their natural state, sadly for them.

    She doesn't seem to have any explanation for her failure to land jumps at Worlds, as if it was something apart from her happening over which she had no control.

    I have serious doubts that she will ever again regain her US Championship.

    Isn't there a support thread for Czisny here on FSU? (Just sayin'...)

    “I don’t want to watch that -- I mean, who does performances like that?" [Czisny] asked, forcing a smile as she shook her head in disbelief.
    Well.....apparently you do

    (sorry, couldn't resist!)

    Well, if she's not going to quit, I wish her the best of luck and hope she can exit on a stronger note. However, I will be throwing my support behind other American skaters for next year's Worlds as I think the #s speak for themselves, and other folks are just as, if not more, capable of doing well (or at least competently) in Ontario.

    I wish her well, and appreciate her qualities.. But I didn't think USFS should have invited her to WTT after two embarrassing back to back disasters , unless it was to drive the World Team Zamboni. They should have gone straight to Gold or Zhang. This does not bode well for future team selections.

    Well atleast she has guts coming back. I will give her that much. Too bad she didnt show any of that same guts on the ice this season. Even if she isnt blackballed by the USFSA Flatt style she will only make it to London if one of Wagner or Gold bombs at Nationals or in the events leading up to it. More likely she will receive Flatt like treatment from the US judges at Nationals and have to skate extremely well to come even top 5.

    In case you haven't noticed, despite her "back to back disasters", she is still the US ladies' silver medalist, which means she placed higher at US senior nationals than either Gold or Zhang. Inviting her to WTT was appropriate IMHO given that fact.

    I'll be surprised if we ever see her back to worlds. I get the feeling the USFSA will make sure GG and Ashley are on the world team.

    Agreed. Makes me think they'll give her chance #5 without thinking about it if she gets in the top 2...she'll bomb again and we'll have 2 spots for the SECOND straight Olympics.

    At some point you have to start looking at the numbers and asking questions.

    Well atleast she has guts coming back. I will give her that much. Too bad she didnt show any of that same guts on the ice this season.
