    The Adam Rippon Good News Thread

    Didn't see a cheer thread for Adam and after seeing his performance at the Izod the other night and tonight seeing him and Ashley on The Voice tonight thought I would start one.

    Go Adam!

    Short video clip of Adam & Ashley being introduced in the audience on NBC's "The Voice" tonight: http://instagram.com/p/iDAEvnPnts/

    Michelle Kwan wrote a nice paragraph on Adam in the second half of her Lysacek article (link is posted in the U.S. Men's thread in GSD here):
    I watched Adam Rippon skate and I was just blown away by his technical abilities. He’s working on a quad-lutz — I’ve never seen anybody complete it, so seeing him be able to land it with ease was remarkable." His skating is just stunning and he has the potential to medal in the Olympics, if he qualifies of course. His long program is brilliant, the transitions between jumps and spins are seamless, and overall beautifully choreographed.

    This might be Rippon's best performance of "A Song for You" to date (re-posting video link from the American Legends show thread plus mjames' report excerpt): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjcFG8mw47k

I saw some people from where he used to skate in NJ after the show and they commented how Adam had moved to an entirely new level this season. They were really happy for him.

    Good move mjames, it's about time Adam had his own thread. Hope there'll be lots of good news to add to it!

    I adore Adam, and my fingers are crossed very hard for him to make the team for Sochi. The Rippon Lutz is so spectacularly beautiful, it just takes my breath away every time I see it.

    My dream team for the US men is Adam Rippon and Jason Brown.

    Thanks Sylvia for all the info about Adam. The confidence he has this season when
    he takes the ice is wonderful to see and his skating, so smooth and powerful puts
    him in contention for the National title.

    He is going to make a splash at his Nationals for sure!

    GO Adam!!!!

    One of my all-time favs by ANY skater. I was in Kingston in 2010 and went to the Gala practice. Silly me with no tissues.

    I cry when I watch the video, kwanette.
    I can only imagine what it was like to see that "practice"!

    my goodness me. what a beautiful, beautiful exhibition programme from Adam! (Never watched it before)

    I liked his skating best when he first burst onto the scene ...

    then he had some rather generic programmes (like Rach 2, and even the Bach programme didn't do much)

    arutunian is doing wonders to this guy and I wouldn't mind seeing him in the Olympic games.
