"Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden
At Josh's hair and outfit. Idk what he's thinking, maybe experimenting or USFS told him to get a new style? I miss the Tom Cruise hair, he should have never cut it. Oh well, hopefully he'll learn style tips eventually. Loving Agnes' blonde curly look though!
Can't wait for the cheesy team building photos and videos to arrive, those are always my favorite part of champs camp!

We should get some nice tidbits, as much as she's allowed by TPTB, from Lynn Rutherford who is there.
I like that pic of Josh Lynn tweeted. My goodness, he really is all grown up now.
Jason is excited:

“@USFigureSkating: The annual Champs Camp photo! pic.twitter.com/1uosRUnBdE” So excited to be here at my first Champs Camp!!!
Tweeted by @Lynn Rutherford:
"Britney Simpson recovering well from shoulder surgery 6/24. Simpson&Blackmer are here at Champs Camp to participate in off-ice events. They are working to be ready for Grand Prix in Russia"
"Champs Camp: SPs start soon.Denney & Frazier will reprise their Spanish-theme SP of last season, not Bollywood SP they did at Skate Detroit."
"Champs Camp: Aldridge & Eaton will not perform their programs here, due to Eaton's ankle injury, said coach Pasquale Camerlengo.
Champs Camp, cont.: "It happened in Lake Placid, torn ligaments; it's getting much better but not ready yet," Camerlengo said of Eaton."
ETA USFS' tweets so far:
Today's schedule: skating. Everyone will skate their short programs at the @csworldarena in a closed door session. http://pic.twitter.com/TRriMbcqxE
Leave phone unattended, find pictures like this on camera roll. Glad you're having fun @MarissaCastelli #ChampsCamp http://pic.twitter.com/YZE0RfOII2
Not to brag, but I'm watching figure skating right now. No, actually I guess this is bragging. The men are practicing now. #ChampsCamp
As this is a closed session, we can't report too much. Now practicing on the ice are Lysacek, Brown, Abbott and Miner. Sorry!
More of the news will come later when all the athletes will speak to the media. #ChampsCamp
Of the skating quality, all I can say is...it's an Olympic year. What we have seen today so far is fantastic. #Tease #ChampsCamp
Practice still ongoing here at the @csworldarena. Short programs will be performed beginning with dance at 3:20 ET. Closed door sessions.
Three ladies, @AshWagner2010, @mirai_nagasu and @christina_gao are on the ice for their practice session.
The rest of the ladies, @carolinezhang, @GraceEGold, @SammiCesario and @agneszawadzki are practicing now.

Evan looks like he's doing all his off-ice training at a tanning booth.
I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.
Christina Gao tweeted:
Excited to show judges and officials my revamped SP this evening! Same music, but want to show how I've grown as a skater. #champscamp"
