David Wilson says that Yu-Na is considering a Latin/Spanish/Tango program for this season. She will discuss programs following All That Skate. He insists that she has all of her jumps and still wants to compete. Nothing is definite in the Yu-Na camp, but that doesn't mean the Korean press can't have 5,987 about the ideas being tossed around in Yu-Na's mind.
Paul Hamm is back and the gym and is hoping to regain his position as best in the World. He isn't sure if he'll train at the OTC or at Swiss Turners, but he has been working out with Andrei Kan and Stacy Maloney. Paul gave IG2 a snippet at the douche that he is when he mentioned how he talked with his former coach on the phone. Paul wanted to know 'what Stacy would be willing to put into this comeback.' As though Stacy, the man who built him as a gymnast, owes him something. Paul should be on his hands and knees kissing Stacy's ass after he left him high and dry a year before Athens. I will confess to loving Paul Hamm's gymnastics, but having to deal with him giving interviews is another story. Have you ever met someone as utterly unlikable?!
Morgan, the twin people actually like, is coaching at M+M Gymnastics and hopes to attend Pharmacy school.
Chelsea Davis spoke with Gymnastike about her comeback and new routines. She has redesigned her beam set to include the least amount of arching as possible. As usual, Anne's questions are positively riveting.
Kayla Williams won't be competing at this weekend's US Classic (Cover Girl Classic) after sustaining a foot injury. Mary Lee Tracy has had Kayla jumping rope for hours a day to get the pounds off. Judges insist that Kayla was actually looking decent and could still have a shot if she heals in time for the selection camp. Being the reigning World Champion, Kayla should have an automatic bye through to the selection camp. With Alicia training only 2-3 hours a day, getting her power specialist spot back could be easier than initially thought.
Li Mingzhu moved back to China. Caroline Zhang is officially working with Tammy Gambill. Ms. Tammy is known for being a little nuts herself. People are already taking bets about how long this union will last.
Shen and Zhao will be celebrating their wedding on ice on September 4th in 'Artistry On Ice.' Evgeny Plushenko, Sasha Cohen, Alexei Yagudin, Johnny Weir, Pang and Tong, The Zhangs, Mao Asada and Stephane Lambiel will also participate in the on-ice nuptials.
Ashley Wagner has been vlogging again. As usual, she produces absolutely nothing of value and puts on her peppy act. Friends shouldn't let friends embarrass themselves like this. Where's her agent?!
