    From MZoueva: Lindsay Davis had a training accident the day before camp resulting in several stitches to her head so no SP for DavisBrubaker

    More Champs Camp: "Lindsay and Rockne may skate some tomorrow," Zoueva said. "The injury doe not seem serious but still we are careful."

    "Champs Camp: Evan Lysacek is skating both his short program and free skate for officials today."
    Thank you for sharing all these tweets/observations, Sylvia!

    for Lindsay Davis. I hope indeed it's minor.

    Per tweets, it looks like they're just skipping the SP to be safe. The fact that they are here probably means it is very minor.

    Bobby Martin who is attending Champs Camp with Castelli/Shnapir, has written a second, entertaining blog article: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/2013/...key-to-success
    Excerpt:
    Let's talk about the elephant in the room: How will we all handle the Olympic year?

    This year is HUGE! The last four years of existence boils down to the next five months. It will be stressful, packed with challenges, expectations and anxiety ... or so everyone has told me.

    How is this different from other years? Stress? Yup, felt that before. Challenges? Daily. High expectations? That should be the case always! Anxiety? I already have gray hairs with names of previous and current students on them. You should see my beard! (Perhaps I will grow one and post a picture.)

    There will be more media, more attention from judges and officials, more questions about the Olympics, more potential distractions. People around you may behave differently; actually, they WILL behave differently. We are at Champs Camp this week and are getting a heavy dose of SOCHI (Scary Omg Craycray Help me Insanity). This is an Olympic year, after all. Didn't you know that? Gulp.

    Marissa is so funny. With S/K man if they could pull up that second mark to World standards that would be amazing. IT is time. Time for a US team to have the elements and the second mark that stands up to placing at World's or the Olympics. IT would be nice this year but we will have to see. IT is still too early to see if the teams can do it but we'll see if it happens. IT would be S/k and then D/S would be the only ones with the elements and the lines that would do it Internationally. Both teams have challenges but they also have amazing moments.

    Can't wait for more info about this camp! Does it come out if the judges liked someones costume or not? I noticed D/C changed both their SHORT and LONG?? Just curious what is going on. Seems like an exciting week though and hope the athletes are getting excited about this year!!

    Maybe if the skaters change their costumes after Champs Camp? Though I don't know if all the skaters' costumes are ready yet.

    I noticed D/C changed both their SHORT and LONG?? Just curious what is going on.
    I posted an article about that in the U.S. Pairs news thread not long ago. Link: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...=1#post3972836

    ^^^ I heard Christina Gao has a minor foot injury -- reportedly she was able to skate both her programs at Champs Camp. ETA Christina's tweet today:
    "Gained a lot of great info from on-ice feedback session as well as off-ice meetings today! A super productive Champs Camp so far. "

    Seems like the runway show was a big hit. Also, looking at the pictures, is anyone else in agreement that Jason Brown should seriously consider getting a new hairstyle? The ponytail was kind of cute when he was younger, but now that his features are stronger, the slicked back, severe middle part ponytail look is just way too harsh and not flattering at all, IMO. He's not a bad looking guy, just needs a hairstyle that's softer and balances out his nose and eyebrows. Maybe the judges gave him some advice...

    but hasn't he been 'approached' about the pony tail and refused to cut it?

    Why does Jason's hairstyle matter?
    As long as he is comfortable, what business is it of ours?
