Canadian ladies über
Daleman is on the roster for Warsaw Cup and Bausback and Schumacher are on the list for Ice Challenge Austria. I really hope see Tobin on the list for Golden Spin (or something...)
Reportedly there are behind the scenes issues that may keep Ruiter from competing much this year.Sorry if I'm late to the party: is Skate Canada NOT considering Kaiya Reuter for the Olympics even if she wins Nationals?? (I'm assuming she's competing senior this year.) Comparing Schizas's Finlandia performances w/Reuter's JGP performances, my money would be on Reuter. Reuter, perhaps, skates smaller, but, IMO, she skates cleaner and is more aesthetically pleasing.
My point is that I hope Skate Canada makes this a two lefty race for that Olympic spot!! It can only make both ladies hungrier!
I wonder what those issues are. Seems hella foolish to me to prevent her from movin' on up when she, more so than most of her countrywomen, is ready to contend with the big girls.Reportedly there are behind the scenes issues that may keep Ruiter from competing much this year.
Right, and we fans don't have the right to know more if that's the case.Except the issues could be personal.
I would think of Kaiya for next cycle. Love what we saw from her this year. There are some issues behind the scenes (nothing overly tragic, but...). Might just see her at Nationals - maybe Challenge - and call it a season unless some things get resolved. Lots to look forward to from her, though. Maddie needs to get 2 spots so we can get her and Kaiya to world's for the whole next cycle and I'd be good!
Weaver is fantastic and has a way with words. Osmond not so much, she seems more like someone you would sit next to and chit chat about the skating. Commentating isn't an easy skill.I don't necessarily think she has the best voice for commentating, but good for her. It's interesting to me that Kevin Reynolds is the choice for men, and I love that Kaitlyn is the choice for dance - she was FANTASTIC when she hosted that online event last year. Not particularly looking forward to Meagan for pairs, though her technical knowledge will be interesting to hear.
Kaetlyn is training to be a journalist, so I wouldn't be surprised if she's worked on this sort of thing (commentary being one of the more obvious ways she could make money in that field).I too am a little surprised Kaetlyn is going to do commentary. She always seemed incredibly nervous and uncomfortable when being interviewed. I would say the same about Patrick Chan. Love them both, but I’m not sure speaking engagements are either’s strength.
