    Angela Nikodenov looked so sad on TV

    She was coaching a male skater at the Olympics whose name escapes me, but her eyes looked so lifeless. I guess when you lose your mom and your career the same day it's to be expected.

    Ivan Dinev.

    To me, it was hard to read her expression. Maybe she was just looking intense because of the competition.

    Yeah, she looked so sad. My daughter was the one mentioned it to me first.

    I imagine the pain she is in will never go away. So many "if onlys."

    Angela has always had sad eyes. Even when she has a big smile on her face, her eyes look sad.

    Yes, I know what you mean. She's been through a lot, it's a sin.

    She did look sad since her mom passed away during 2005 nationals. It's a horriable accident...since then she did not have the courage to compete again...maybe coaching is her best career choice for now....Angelar is a great skater...

    I don't remember seeing her on TV. Which network and which broadcast was this?

    She can't skate as of now due to a hand injury from the accident.

    NBC during the Men's Short, I believe.

    Angela

    Angela has had the injured hand for awhile. When I saw her at 2005 COI backstage, you can tell she was having a hard time signing autographs. Her right hand is badly burned, along with a little bit of her arm. I was suprised that info never came out until Anglea announced she can't compete for awhile. Oh yea, when I saw her, her hand has too much scar tissue and burnt scars on it.

    Was the burn from scraping the asphalt or fire? I don't recall there being a fire from the accident.

    That information did come out. Her Dr absolutely vetoed any skating. Her hand was in such bad shape any type of fall could have crippled it permanently. The last that I heard, she was going in for skin grafts. It wasn't lack of courage at all.

    Angela always had that stoic look about her on and off the ice.
