The ultimate collision of mediawhores: Next Oprah!
Cappellini and Lanotte will be training with Igor Shpilband to improve their technical skills and elements. I live for European and Japanese skaters spending all their time with Russian coaches in America while still claiming their initial coach whom they rarely ever speak to is still their primary coach.

Igor and Marina were a power duo with equal coaching talents and political pull. Now we will find out who the more resilient Russian is as they build up warring stables.

Who the Olympians are rooting for. Whose writing skills do you live for more: Dominique Moceanu or Shannon Miller? Dominique, a great of community college, was very glad to learn about the appositive in Freshman English, a required course at John Carroll University, and feels very confident in her writing. Shannon, this Miss America of gymnastics, views talking to the media as a new opportunity to show off her freshly-whitened teeth.
Nastia Liukin hits up the media circuit to promote the tour. I want a photo of Nastia and Kate Middleton together in London while they're still the same waist size.
