    I'm glad you enjoyed the interview with Tim - his candor was SO refreshing! I learned a lot that I didn't know and found his take on Cinquanta and IJS right on the money.

    Another new interview on Skate Guard blog... this one's with Linda Villella!

    If the name doesn't ring immediately ring a bell, Linda Villella is her married name. You may know her by her maiden name, Carbonetto. In 1968, Linda Carbonetto finished second at the Skate Canada / Patinage Canada Canadian Figure Skating Championships behind World Champion Karen Magnussen and earned a berth on the Olympic team that traveled to Grenoble, France. The following season, nineteen year old Carbonetto, who had been touted as "the nation's next great international champion" by the Toronto Star's Jim Proudfoot, traveled to Toronto and unseated Magnussen to win the Canadian title, even earning a perfect score of 6.0 for her flawless free skate. The student of Ellen Burka then traveled to the North American Championships in Oakland, California and won the bronze medal. She followed that up with a sixth place finish at the 1969 World Championships in Colorado Springs. Then as quickly as she rose to the top, she decided to move on. Carbonetto joined the professional ranks, toured with Ice Capades and later married renowned ballet dancer and choreographer Edward Villella and turned her attention to the dance world, taking on a key role with the Miami City Ballet School. Villella took the time to talk about her life in skating, her thoughts on the sport's evolution and her current life both in and out of the sport:

    Just curious, how do you interview all those people from different countries? Do you meet them, do you call them?

    They are pretty brilliant if you ask me, but there's something so unique and haunting about Robin's "On The Frozen Pond" that just commands your attention and takes you to a different place IMO.

    Another amazing interview.
    I appreciate her forthright, yet sensitive, handling of subjects most people avoid.
    Many thanks!

    Thanks so much skatesindreams! Lorna is an absolute joy of a person and interviewing her was a lot of fun.

    All new on the blog today is "Die Anfängerin: Christine Stüber-Errath's Remarkable Comeback", a look at the remarkable return to the ice of a former World Champion for a forthcoming German feature film:

    Just fascinating!

    I had no idea about this story; or the film.
    I'll look forward to hearing more about it.
    Please, keep us updated.
