This and That
John Goddert on pacing Jordyn Wieber (with training clips...does she look as sharp to you?)
Podium Training Quick Hits and discussion of Olympic Team Selection Procedures.
Column on Rebecca Bross' Olympic Chances. I enjoy how Andy Thorton is one of the only honest bloggers in the sport.
Getting to Know Alicia Sacramone (as though we idn't already.)
Ross Miner's new programs. Ice Network is all about promoting Boston this week...like we really need to know about Ross "choreography."
Shannon sports a new wig and discusses VISA Championships. She is so never going back to her real hair. I really miss her FLDS look from the 1996 Olympic Gala.
Johnny Weir's new SP music is rumored to be by Lady Gaga. Is that outrageous enough to get him attention? Are we immune to Gaga? Does Johnny need a new shtick? He will be a Phoenix for his long program: A Bottom With Feathers.
Carolina Kostner will continue competing. Is this a mistake? Is there anywhere to go but down? Kostner's Jill Trenary-World-Title is unlikely to come around again.
Rhonda Faehn's contract was extended through 2017. She will be coaching in a new gym come December.
Anna Li's 2012 Floor Music
Valeri kept the WOGA girls home for one more day of training before podium training before the public. They arrived late afternoon.
