This and That
Caydee Denney and Jeremy Barrett announced the end of their partnership today. Caydee plans to continue and will be a much-wanted partner, while Jeremy plans to go into coaching and show skating.
Gametime with Shayla Worley
UCLA update with Miss Val
Wonderful feature on 'dance major' Jonathan Cassar. It is bullshit that his PCS were only 68.50, but the judges clearly held him down for not having a Triple Axel. If PCS were accurate, he'd have scored much higher than Miner and Dornbush. I'll be nice to our National Champion and not make a comparison.
One year later, Joannie Rochette reflects.
Joannie confirmed that she will compete at the 2011 Japan Open. She has never been skating better than she is now.
Marlie have sealed their #1 ISU ranking. They can lose Worlds and will still be the number one ranked ice dance team in the World.
Mao Asada and Miki Ando prepare for Worlds.
Gym Dog Practice Update
Kat Ding has the flu. Shayla is limited to bars this week. Ironically, this foot issue could be the thing that keeps Shayla in one piece for the post season. This makes it more of a challenge for the Gym Dogs to finalize their lineups, but we can only hope that Jay will have learned that he needs to go with greatness when his team's future is on the line and not go with the 9.7s.
Jonathan Horton hopes to me more than 'just a trickster' in 2011.
