    USFSA says MK is CONFIRMED for SA

    Hope they wouldn't pull a "last year" again. I have a feeling this announcement means that MK really is doing the GP this year. I'm so jazzed.

    I too hope Michelle actually comes to compete, but I am really excited to get the chance to see Tiffany and Jamie with their new partners. Besides, I've never been to Atlantic City....

    Didn't they "confirm" her last year, too? I'm not getting my hopes up here.

    Still, assuming that the association is NOT assuming, this may be a good thing.

    For now, I'll believe it when I see it. (or in this case, her!)

    I want to see Dan Fang, Jenna McCorkell, Sergei Davydov, Kristofer Berntssen and of course, Kevin Vander Perren.

    Will Obertas and Slavnov have a chance against Zhang and Zhang?

    Is Marci Hintzman fully recovered from her operation and ready to challenge Inoue and Baldwin and Orsher and Lucash for the best in America?

    These are going to be great competitions in their own right, never mind the Olympics!

    Oh ye of little faith! Of course she's going to be there. Hasn't she been reading all the Internet postings about why she has to do the Grand Prix this year?

    Here is the full quote, from the Tarasova thread:

    “Working with Michelle was for me like a gift from God. She is an amazing person and an amazing skater. She works like crazy and she skates like a goddess.

    “I hope people appreciate these new programs, because she is the most unbelievable person in figure skating,...

    What can I say? The truth will out.

    Of course in the other article discussed on that thread Tarasova goes on to say, well, in TT's heart of hearts Michelle isn't Alexei Yagudin, but still...

    Let's see if these new programs can get her back in the game, now that someone who's IN the game put them together.

    As I said, I think her best bet would be to work up rather than come out strong. Not only that, but if she removes all doubt, all eyes will be back on her not only for the Olympics, but Nationals as well.

    No, no, that's what she tried last year. She ended up not working up to anything much at all.

    Better to remove all doubt as soon as possible, especially in the eyes of the judges, who sometimes tend to give out marks based on their expectations and perceptions of whole season anyway.

    I've heard from a very good source that Marcy Hinzmann is fully recovered and back on the ice skating better than ever!
