    Cool Sochi Olympic Hopeful U.S. figure skaters' media shoots/USOC portrait photos in L.A.

    Many Team USA figure skaters are in Los Angeles this week for the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) and NBC promotional media shoots for Sochi.

    Here are some of the photos tweeted yesterday from NBC's Olympic promo film shoot (ETA: at the East West rink in Artesia):

    There have been tweets by or about (so far) Jeremy Abbott, the Shibutanis, Ross Miner, Christina Gao, and Agnes Zawadzki, who are all in L.A. now.

    This thread in the Other Sports forum includes the link to USOC portrait photos taken yesterday of other Team USA winter athletes: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...t-Hollywood-CA

    Charlie White tweeted this photo of himself and Meryl about two hours ago: "We're ready for @NBCOlympics @USOlympic promo shoot! #RoadToSochi #TeamUSA" http://pic.twitter.com/vtcGZnTNsX

    Davis/White and Gracie Gold filmed at the East West rink in Artesia yesterday (photos linked above). The rink's website states:
    East West Ice Palace will be hosting a film crew preparing for
    NBC’s coverage of the upcoming 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

    Monday, April 22 – Wednesday, April 24
    The rink will be closed all three days.
    The off-ice photo shoots and NBC TV interviews are being held at Smashbox Studios in West Hollywood.

    I wonder if they'll invite Alissa Czisny, Mirai Nagasu or Johnny Weir.

    I assume if he's competing, Evan Lysacek will definitely get a photoshoot.

    Gracie Gold certainly got the glamour shots, half cheerleader, half sex kitten. It will be interesting to see how Ashley Wagner is posed.

    Couldn't Ralph Lauren have made that Polo emblem on Charlie's shirt a little LARGER ?!

    I wish Agnes would go with that softer younger look when she competes, she looks lovely in these. Christina is stunning.

    What was the criteria for making the "hopeful" list?

    At 2009 LA media event, top 5 from US Figure Skating Championships were invited to participate. The media event covers all sports for both hopeful Olympians and Paralympians. Later that year in September, there was a second media event in Chicago for all hopeful US competitors...plus a few additional hopeful athletesthat had not been included in LA
