Hooked On Adam Rippon
Lynn Rutherford's fantastic feature on Adam Rippon in this month's issue of Skating Magazine mentions that Adam idolizes the great John Curry. His new program includes spin positions that are inspiring throwbacks to the '70s and look wonderful on this skater. Trained from the beginning by Russians, Rippon's body is lyrical and expressive. He has also been working on Quad Toes and Quad Flips and has studied the techniques and entrances of others. Orser says that his triple axels have become quite comfortable. He is loading up the second half of the program in order to achieve maximum points.
