This and That
The Shibtanis skating to The Prayer at Evening With Champions.
ESPN has a must-read article on the Shib sibs that confirms just how much of an A+ Asian Skating Mother the two have. She does indeed tape every practice and review it with the kids. They also have a ballet room in their house. Kris Jenner could learn a thing or two from Mrs. Shibutani.
IG spoke to Rebecca Bross about her injury. Rebecca vows to be back in top form, but it is evident that she cannot condition the way she'd like to given the injury. She has a tough battle ahead of her. Sadly, she has spent much of the last four years coming back from injuries. Rebecca's best chance at making the Olympics is doing all four events and hoping she can be considered as a back-up on vault. It will not be an easy road.
Alissa Czisny told Ice Network about her summer training during her media call. Alissa will be performing a Triple Lutz+Triple Toe, a solo Triple Lutz, adding a Triple Salchow and performing two Triple Flips in her seven-triple program. It may be tough for her to be as consistent this season, but she is raising the bar with her technical content. If Alissa wants to be at the top of the sport, she needs to advance technically.
Richard Dornbush will debut a new short at Skate America.
Belu and Bitang are PISSED and ready to clean house in Romania after the team's medalless performance at Worlds.
Team USA preps for Pan Am dominance.
A chance to listen to Die Fledermaus and imagine Marlie's music edits. Once you get past the '96 compulsory section, you realize just how wonderful this program can be. This may be just the vehicle they need to stay on top of the podium this season.
