    Cipres accused of sexual misconduct

    If I read the article correctly, the victim's father is an attorney. There are many specialties in law, but attorneys tend to be acutely aware of risk - it's generally what they do after all, manage risk. And given that said attorney dad seems to be involved in bringing forth claims, I just...

    Cipres accused of sexual misconduct

    I wouldn’t characterize not sending minors dick pix as “careful,”’but rather common decency.

    Cipres accused of sexual misconduct

    Also if it were unintentional, upon discovering the identity of the recipient, I would think he would have apologized profusely, which does not appear to have been the case.

    Don’t people still train with Fajfr? Rational thought does not always prevail. ETA: Jinx @zebraswan.

    Cipres accused of sexual misconduct

    Zimmerman and Fontana are mandatory reporters under SafeSport, so if they failed to report the incident, and further pressured the young lady not to report it further, their career in the US at least is toast, as it should be. I hope the victim is receiving lots of support.

    Russia banned from hosting/competing at major international events for 4 years

    The preceding paragraph indicates that they are referring to the results from Sochi: "As part of the resolution of that case....." Again, it's the cover up that was the tipping point.

    Russia banned from hosting/competing at major international events for 4 years

    Per the articles, the Russian labs are only part of the issue. Russia had a chance to clear things up by providing test data from their labs, but rather than hand over all the data apparently altered the contents so that the status of individual athletes cannot be accurately assessed. It is...

    Benjamin T. Wright -- RIP

    Imagine being witness to such a span of figure skating history. :eek: In a sport dependent on volunteers, Ben Wright was the embodiment of selflessness driven by a pure love of figure skating. May his extraordinary life of service be an inspiration to others to give back. RIP Benjamin Tappan...

    Seriously? Chen would do better by going to Target or a board shop and just pulling something off the rack.

    Montreal chosen as host for 2020 figure skating world championships

    Because they want to push people to the more expensive seats, and they also want the bowl to be full for TV.

    Montreal chosen as host for 2020 figure skating world championships

    The host fed, not the ISU, controls ticket pricing, but yes, the event is on the hook for covering ISU expenses, which include all expenses for ISU officials (airfaire, local ground transportation, lodging, meals and a per diem), plus a set number of tickets for ISU guests (not a direct expense...

    U.S. Ladies [#28]: Achieving 2020 Vision

    The quality of her skating does look more mature. As Dick Button would say, good stretch.

    U.S. Ladies [#28]: Achieving 2020 Vision

    Yes, a 3A is the highest valued triple (the axel is the highest valued jump within any revolution category because it has an extra 1/2 rotation), and it is an essential element for men in order to place in a top spot unless most everyone else has rough skates, but there are seven elements in the...
