    At, yes...youth.....
    Ms Zhang and Ms Flatt are actually quite close in age from the USFSA website.
    Zhang's Bday May 93
    Flatt's Bday July 92

    Let's not make a big deal about how young either skater is...they are 10 months apart in age. It really only mattered for Flatt last year as she was 3 weeks too young to start the JGP series. They are both young and have years to look ahead for what they can bring to their skating!

    That's my point, it's no big deal. I'm talking about Rachel's age in a tongue and cheek manner. I got so fed up hearing about Tara and 'the youngest ever'.

    I'm talking about one going into Seniors while the other remains in Juniors or didn't you see that? That's the deal - not the ages.

    I see e.g. Flatt and Zhang scheduled for Courchevel JGP in August 24-27:

    Did watch a couple junior male skater clips and was rather impressed by Mroz and Kanallakan. Also they among lots of others from USA are competing in Courchevel JGP:

    Not possible unfortunately, just eagerly looking forward to clips that possibly will be posted on fsvidsforum...

    Oh, fsvids... I've been waiting for the chance to ask someone this question. Would you by any chance be able to tell me how one joins that forum, because I have tried several times and can't seem to get in. I must be missing something.

    I would so much appreciate your help!

    Mroz, Kanallakan and Flatt all train with Tom Zakrajsek in Colorado Springs...good thing for Mroz and Flatt....training at altitude as they are both going to Mexico City, which is at about the same altitude of Colorado Springs, 6400-7000 ft. Anxious to see the ISU list as to what other skaters will be in Mexico City.

    I trained at the same time as Mroz at the Mariposa School of Skating, in Barrie a couple of years ago, on different sessions of course. He made it to the "elite session" with Buttle, Mabee and the like, and showed them all up frequently in practices, ripping off triple lutz triple toes and the like. I'd look towards him being a force to be reckoned with in the next few years.

    Thanks, Doris! For some reason, today when I went to the page, I was able to log in so I expect I'll be able to access it now. But it took months - no idea why!

    Can someone repost some of Doris' vids from this competition? I missed out when they were first posted.

    I just saw that you asked on fsvids for Rachel Flatt & Brandon Mroz. Did you want any of the other skaters? Most of my vids are on my laptop, but Sr Ladies A&B LP and Men's LP are on the computer I'm using right now. Are there any other files from that part of the competition that you'd like?

    Nope, I'm good Doris! That's all I wanted, I didn't realize the vids were on fsvids, until I visited later this morning. Thanks though, and thanks again for so generously sharing all your vids with us.
