    2021 4CC Sydney: early information & planning thread

    I totally get the bit about not attending due to health concerns at the moment. It was a shame to be in a half empty arena though, with belongings on seats. Those fans had been in for the final group of men’s practice for the freeskate and then left the arena, only coming back for the final...

    2021 4CC Sydney: early information & planning thread

    I hope it doesn’t mean fans miss out on seats though. Seoul was sold out but there were many empty seats in the stadium. Many of the Fanyus only came into the stadium for the last group of men. Even then, there were still many empty seats. I’m told that some fans purchased a seat, but with no...

    2021 4CC Sydney: early information & planning thread

    I was told that the Quaycentre is being considered. I believe that this is still in the Olympic Park area, close to Qudos Bank Arena but a somewhat smaller option.

    U.S. Pairs 2019-20 season - News & Updates, Part X

    They certainly do not owe the public an explanation at all. They would owe US Figure Skating an explanation, except they already know the explanation. Mitch Moyer was right there in Seoul and knows exactly why Alexa and Chris did not compete in the free.

    Does french figure skating have a culture of rape ? FFSG in the storm

    Euronews has been reporting on the story all day. Tonight they’ve expanded their coverage to include someone giving special comments and further explaining the ramifications. There’s hopefully no sweeping this back under the carpet now.

    U.S. Men 2019-20 season - news & updates

    Adam lands plenty in practice. It seems to be doing the same thing in competition that is his issue. He has the goods, but doesn’t consistently deliver them, yet. I don’t know whether it’s nerves or pressure that he puts in himself, or both. He’s got the jumps and lovely skating skills, he’s a...

    Canadian Pairs 2019/2020 Season News and Updates

    I don’t know what the protocol is in Canada, but at ISU events it is the skater that must sign the withdrawal form. A coach can not sign the form to make this decision on behalf of the skater. I was at a JGP with a skater who was about to be loaded into an ambulance and the skater had to sign...

    Not sure what happened there. Your post quotes me, but that’s not my post or my words.

    From Russia with Love [#35]: Winter 2019

    I find it incredibly sad. My personal opinion is that people willing to spend a lot of money on this sort of thing are quite desperate. I’m not talking about this case in particular though. It’s the same way I feel about people like John Edward, they’re preying on people who are desperately...

    Rsport interview with Elizaveta Tuktamysheva

    Sorry also to derail. Thank you for those photo links. I hope to see Irina one day this week and will show them to her. Happy to let you know that after her accident a number of years ago now, she has recovered very well. She still does a little coaching each week.
