    Thanks for your interviews and opinion pieces. I have been reading them slowly over time. Just finished the piece on Kira Ivanova and am so glad you decided to memorialize her by telling her story.

    Messalina, thank you so much for your support! Kira Ivanova's story was, in my opinion, such an important story to share. Her life wasn't easy but she still accomplished so much in figure skating. The way her life ended still makes me SO incredibly sad.

    Skatesindreams, glad you enjoyed Hidden Treasures. All six of those skaters (well, eight, as two of them were teams) really made such an impression on me. Truly special gems that most people may not know about and REALLY should. They're all just fabulous.

    I hope you'll all enjoy the latest on the blog, my interview with U.S. Olympian Suna Murray: http://skateguard1.blogspot.ca/2014/...na-murray.html

    Suna Murray seems extraordinary.
    I'm glad that she is still involved in the sport and coaching.

    Thanks, for the introduction to some champions unknown to me; and for the footage of Gundi Busch.

    Suna's story is truly an inspiring one and I'm thrilled she's still involved in the sport as well! I'm glad you enjoyed part 1 of The Other World Champions and hope you'll feel the same way about Part 2: http://skateguard1.blogspot.ca/2014/...ns-part-2.html

    In 1990, then twelve year old Joanna Ng participated in an interpretive skating competition that complemented the usual fare at Skate Canada International. She skated an elaborate program that depicted the story of a young Vietnamese woman brought to North America and abandoned there, forced to dance herself into collapse to support herself and WON that competition against skaters nearly twice her age. The prodigal young American skater won the U.S. junior silver medal and went on to later represent a different country - Taiwan - at the World Figure Skating Championships. Turning to a professional career at a young age, Ng continues to skate professionally over twenty years later, recently performing with Broadway On Ice. Joanna took the time from her very busy schedule to reflect on her career, talk about skating 'then' and 'now' and so much more in this fabulous interview: http://skateguard1.blogspot.ca/2014/...joanna-ng.html

    I don't know about you, but I'm no stranger to a knife and fork. I'm no size two anymore, and you know why honey? I love to eat delicious food. From sushi to Mexican and everything in between, I'll try anything once... and usually go back for seconds. Just as we need a little more adventure in our figure skating, we always need to be adventurous with our palates. There is already a wonderful cookbook out there with favourite recipes from the world's best skaters called Figure Skaters' Favorites that you can purchase online for only $20 USD but I decided to join in the fun too and compile or adapt some wonderful recipes for the ultimate of all dinner parties: A Double Axel Dinner Party with recipes inspired by some of our favourite (and not so favourite) figures in the skating world. From Dick Mutton to Spicy John Curry, join me in a culinary adventure of "level five" proportions in A Double Axel Dinner Party: Recipes Inspired By Figure Skaters:
