    2022 Four Continents Comes To Rude Euro Land (Relocation to Tallinn)

    It's obvious, but the biggest issues with 4CCs are time and distance. Europeans have a distinct advantage with that regard, so it is much easier to participate in both Euros and Olympics.

    Gymnastics News #23: Defying Gravity

    U.S. Women [#1]: The Contenders Unmask Themselves

    She is VERY shy. I talked with her after she won her junior title and she said few words. Her coach was the perfect juxtaposition to her shyness-- super outgoing and a total riot. Julia was helping Lindsay give more detailed responses-- they worked very well together, :)

    2020 Tokyo Olympic Games Closing Ceremony - Arigato Japan!

    I have loved getting to know Japanese skating fans, members of the media, and the skaters (when they allow them to be interviewed), but I have never hoped to visit Japan. Not sure why. This Olympics changed all of that-- I really want to see Tokyo now. This games, despite all of the negative...
