    Clara on her move to the US and working with new coaches.

    I always liked how matter-of-fact she's been about her skating and what she needs to do to improve. Hopefully she can start trying triples in competition this next season. Was it 3sal or toe that she was working on?

    Thanks, Sylvia. Even better if it's both! Fingers crossed she gets away from the automatic -3s she used to get in the SP for the combination and solo jump out of ftwk.

    Clara is a fantastic skater, who brings a lot of artistry that has been lost with IJS! Best of Luck to her this season!

    Clara is absolutely loved here

    She really needs to be able to land (or at least rotate ...) the 3 salchow (and hopefully, another 3 jump).

    If this happens, then I don't think Sochi is only a distant dream ... she may not qualify next year via the World championships route, but at the olympic qualifiers in Sep 2013, then who knows ...

    Given the new qualifying scores for Worlds, I'd say the Olympic qualifier in September 2013 will be where she has to do it.

    Bumping up this thread from last year to post this new article on Clara Peters and her current goal to qualify an Olympic berth for Ireland at Nebelhorn this fall: http://sportsnewsireland.com/other_...-peters-looks-ahead-to-sochi-2014-2013-05-06/

    The Ice Skating Association of Ireland's site is very active these days (their Facebook page, too) and has news on the recent Irish Nationals as well as international competitions and experiences for Peters and several other Irish skaters: http://isai.ie/
