    I loved your interview with Christopher Nolan.
    He deserves to be even better known!

    Thank you. I like your interviews, because I always learn something new. I even haven't heard about Christopher Nolan before.

    Thank you both! I'm really glad you enjoyed the interview. The real shame is that I wasn't able to come up with video - Chris has lost many videos including his copy of "Secret" and I would have loved to include it. I believe everyone's stories about their lives in figure skating have value and interest and Christopher's is absolutely no exception.

    I recall a few videos on YT several years ago.
    They don't seem to be there anymore, unfortunately.

    It really is unfortunate. I know they used to be huge sticklers when it came to music copyrights (not so bad now) to the point that a lot of accounts got removed and people just never bothered to come back. At any rate, would be great to track down some video of Chris performing.

    It's rapid fire interviews this week - first Christopher Nolan and now Alaine Chartrand... with The Fabulous Ice Age documentary's Keri Pickett on the way later this week. Here's the interview with Alaine:

    I'm also thrilled to announce that I will have more interviews with some of Skate Canada's Olympic and National team members on the way in the coming months. Big thanks to Skate Canada!

    Thanks skatesindreams! I'm no 'insider' on U.S. figure skating politics but is certainly interesting. I have heard good things about Sam Auxier and I am curious to see how the organization will progress under his leadership.

    Born to Filipino parents, California's Christopher Caluza took up skating at age seven and after finding success as a national competitor within the U.S. made the difficult decision to represent the country of his parent's birth in international competition. It has paid off in dividends! Christopher has represented The Philippines at three World Championships and three Four Continents Championships and found success in international competition around the world. It was my pleasure to talk to him at length about his competitive career, plans going forward, his thoughts on the importance of the short program and much, much more in this must read interview:

    Thanks so much, skatesindreams! I'm a huge fan of Jozef's skating. The fact he's still performing regularly at fifty (and on such a level) makes me smile. Speaking of Czech skaters, the latest on the blog is a Spotlight On Vera Hrubá Ralston... the unlikely success story of the Czech skater who went from finishing seventeenth at the 1936 Winter Olympics in Garmisch-Partenkirchen to starring alongside John Wayne on the silver screen:

    Elena Bechke's story is one of perseverance. Struggling through the early part of her career, she rose to the occasion so many times with partner Denis Petrov, winning the World bronze medal in 1989, two medals at the European Championships, the 1992 Soviet title and ultimately, the Olympic silver medal at the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France. Turning professional following that year's World Championships, Bechke and Petrov went on to be one of the most successful professional pairs teams of all time, finishing second at the World Professional Championships five times and ultimately winning the World Professional Championships in 1996. They toured with Stars On Ice for seven years and won the U.S. Professional Championships, Canadian Professional Championships, U.S. Open Professional Championships, Challenge Of Champions and ESPN Pro Championships, a later incarnation of the Legends Of Figure Skating Competition. Their skating was everything pairs skating should be: daring, difficult, beautiful and artistic. Now remarried and a mother of two, Bechke lives and coaches and North Carolina... and her daughter Sophia is an up and coming skater in her own right. Elena took the time to talk about both her "amateur" and professional careers, relationship with Petrov, Stars On Ice, her children and much more in this must read interview:
