    U.S. Women [#2]: The Unbearable Lightness of Beijing

    I wonder if skating in disintegrating boots at Worlds last March has anything to do with her foot problem. She probably would have switched to different boots, and then that would have caused irritation to her foot. Remember Karen Chen and her years of boot problems?

    And please, PLEASE, let her find a new coach. Her feet were OK before she went to TomZ.

    It seems as if raising the age for Seniors to 17 would be beneficial.

    One wonders, then, why at Russian Nationals, few in the large audience, and no skaters and coaches were wearing masks. It would seem to be testing fate. And then the top Russian skaters and their coaches will be at Euros.

    Discussing Tuberidze's latest interview

    If there is a change in the minimum age, skaters who have been competing internationally as seniors but are under the new minimum age would be grandfathered in, as Tara Lipinski and Sarah Hughes were in the past.

    U.S. Women [#2]: The Unbearable Lightness of Beijing

    I grew up in NYC listening to classical music and as a teenager went to both the ballet (City) and the opera (Met). In skating, I'm regretting the addition of vocals, since many of the skaters are choosing pop ballads featuring whiny singers that all sound the same to me.

    Discussing Tuberidze's latest interview

    Skate Canada was D/S's lowest score and placement of the season so far. D/S did Cup of Austria one weekend, and Warsaw Cup the next, and gained 15 points in their score in one week. Then their Russian Nationals score a month later was higher than Gilles/Poirier's at IDF. 207.70 3rd Russian...

    U.S. Women [#2]: The Unbearable Lightness of Beijing

    Amber had one lutz and two flips in her FS, and at Golden Spin, all she had in the bonus was 3lo, 3lo+rep and 2a. And Amber didn't have any 3/3s either.

    Russian women news & updates, 2021-22 season

    Kamila is a beautiful skater and she will no doubt be the Olympic champion. But like the last two Russian OGMs, in 3 years, she will be a misty memory, having gone through puberty like her predecessors and outgrown her jumps. People will be talking about the 2026 Olympic champion-to-be. Oh...

    2021/2022 Canadian Ladies: News and Updates

    I'm happy for both Madeline and Mariah---but I'm also realistic. That wasn't on home ice before a group of carefully picked judges. And Khromykh scored 154.31 in the JGP ITA FS, where Hendrickx scored 145.53. Maddie and Mariah scored 123.95 (SC) and 129.98 (IDF) in their GP FSs.

    2021/2022 Canadian Ladies: News and Updates

    Both Madeline and Mariah will likely be passed by Khromykh and Hendrickx tomorrow. Khromykh for sure, as Russia wants to own the Rostelecom Women's podium (and get 5 spots for Russia in the Women's GPF).
