    Anjelika Krylova Interview - Happy to be Home

    Are you trying to claim that Krylova and Camerlengo are still married based on their Wikipedia articles? :rofl: The docket (record of legal actions) of Krylova and Camerlengo's divorce is literally a public record: filed June 2015 by Krylova, finalized February 2016. They are legally divorced.

    Richard Callaghan banned by the Center for SafeSport

    An excellent article from ESPN Callaghan’s SafeSport report was 266 pages. :eek:

    Richard Callaghan banned by the Center for SafeSport

    I believe all three can be appealed. The "subject to appeal" tag only ever appears on the top sanction, although this is the first one I recall seeing that includes physical, emotional, and sexual misconduct. Usually it's sexual misconduct+abuse of process if there are two, which is itself...

    Richard Callaghan banned by the Center for SafeSport

    Richard Callaghan has been found "Permanently Ineligible" by the Center for SafeSport (i.e., banned) for physical misconduct, emotional misconduct, and sexual misconduct involving a minor. He has five days to file notice of intent to appeal; that process would take a few more months. It has...

    Keeping Track of Criminal Cases & SafeSport Suspensions in Skating

    That's a ban. Not a new category. Please read the SafeSport Code - not U.S. Figure Skating's SafeSport handbook, the actual SafeSport code - and spend sometime with the main disciplinary database at safesport.org. The Center began using "Ineligible" about a year ago or so. When you look at the...

    Keeping Track of Criminal Cases & SafeSport Suspensions in Skating

    I've seen the email from U.S. Figure Skating. I am comfortable allowing my post history here at FSU to speak for my credibility on a matter that I can't back up with public documentation. The person @Theoreticalgirl referenced on Twitter is clearly in contact with numerous victims from...

    Keeping Track of Criminal Cases & SafeSport Suspensions in Skating

    There are two open Center for SafeSport cases involving figure skating coaches that are public: Steve Moore of West Hartford, CT and Richard Callaghan of Naples, FL. There are a few other cases that are not public. Andrew Lavrik was banned in January by the Center for SafeSport; U.S. Figure...

    Coughlin's Former Pairs Partner Alleges He Abused Her

    Thank you to everyone who is speaking up in support of survivors. Many people in the skating community read FSU and your support is noticed and makes a difference. Some of those skaters felt very strongly that they did not want to wear those damn hats, but Delilah didn't give them a choice...

    U.S. Pairs 2018-19 season - News & Updates, Part IX

    Throw flip and throw Lutz are considered the same throw because the physics/biomechanics of the throw require the girl to be on an essentially flat edge at takeoff in order to be centered relative to the boy. The well-balanced program requirements allow the execution of only one of throw...

    U.S. Pairs 2018-19 season - News & Updates, Part IX

    Ask sincerely and ye shall receive more info about twists than you probably wanted to know. :D Random tech panel info about twists: Twists can be downgraded if they are ½ rev or more short, but twists can’t be called underrotated. Why? Two reasons: The call of the rotation of a twist stops when...

    U.S. Pairs 2018-19 season - News & Updates, Part IX

    :confused: Steps, man's arms, and catch are clearly achieved. The split is "gray" from the angle shown on TV, but viewed in slow motion, I see at least 45 degrees from the body axis on both legs; the split would have been more easily seen from the tech panel camera. For those saying the L4 was...

    SafeSport alleges "culture of grooming and abuse" in U.S. figure skating

    Has no one looked at this list that they are criticizing, that they are saying caused John to take his life? Has no one looked at this list that they are saying is so harmful to coaches that is must be eliminated, even if that means that more children will be abused during an investigation? Go...

    SafeSport alleges "culture of grooming and abuse" in U.S. figure skating

    This is a violation of the locker room policy. It would be handled by USFS's SafeSport Committee. No promises, but based on precedent: you, the three witnesses, the athlete, and (if the athlete was a minor) the athletes' parents would be interviewed. If at that point, all five parties agreed...

    SafeSport alleges "culture of grooming and abuse" in U.S. figure skating

    I'm not sure what you mean by the second half of that. I think my answer below might answer what I think you mean; if not, would you be willing to clarify? That's an interesting question and I am glad that you asked. As you said, they are not necessarily contradictory, but they do need to be...

    SafeSport alleges "culture of grooming and abuse" in U.S. figure skating

    (As always, I am expressing my personal opinions and not speaking for anyone else.) This is a near universal sentiment among those who have dealt with the Center for SafeSport or heard accurate details of their investigations and outcomes. There are multiple cases in figure skating alone that...
