    FYI, Rosaleen, Carriere's jumps in his US Nationals free skate in January were: 3S, 3A (first one landed in comp.!), 3Z-3T, 3F, 3R, 3F-2T, 3Z, 2A-2T -- 8 triples and a clean skate there (126.88 points). He is coached by Mark Mitchell and Peter Johansson -- who is in Slovenia with him?

    WOW! Pfeifhofer had a skate of his life!

    He's an interesting skater and I'm really happy that he managed to get it together jump-wise.

    Peter went with him. Mark is still in Boston. (So no high jumps from the sidelines like at Nats! There's a picture of Mark jumping at least as high as Stephen when he did the 3a at Nationals.)

    Thanks so much for these reports, especially from those of us with no high-speed internet. I got to see his SP in an exhibition before he left--I really like both it and Once Upon a Time In Mexico...still have my fingers crossed for the SP & LP....
