    Thanks for the links! ice-dance.com has done a great job! I've been following the events, in particular the Senior Dance, as British boy Jamie Whyte [former Junior Dance Champion, and pupil of Marika Humphreys] was taking part with new partner Katrina Reyes. Great photos from Michelle Wojdyla.
    Lake Placid is synonymous with the 1980 Olympics for me, would love to visit there one day.

    BTW, slightly off topic, but for German/European icedance fans, there's an interesting update on the site from former competitor Jennifer Goolsbee.

    [Jennifer Goolsbee & Hendryk Schamberger were German National Champions during the 90s, and competed at Euros, Worlds, and the 94 Olympics, trained at Oberstdorf by Martin Scotnicky.
    Jennifer is now married, with a son and daughter, and coaches in Colorado.]

    A great start for Davis and White. They make their senior debut at Skate Canada in November (but the podium is probably out of reach for them, since they face Dubreuil & Lauzon, Virtue & Moir and Faiella & Scali), and then NHK.

    The sweep of the golds was cemented after Davis and White won all three phases of the compulsory dance competition – the Westminster Waltz, Rhumba and Golden Waltz – by more than five points. The final gold looked to be in doubt after White took an uncharacteristic fall on the first pattern of the Golden Waltz, landing a level 4 belly flop near center ice. Amazingly, he was up in an instant and never let the interruption disrupt his rhythm.

    (Even more amazing was the 0 GOE given by one of the judges instead of the mandatory –2 minimum for such a fall.)
    In a recent interview Michelle says that her coach always taught her to jump right up after a fall and pretend that nothing happened. Since many of the judges are "elderly" maybe they will be caught having a senior moment and not notice.

    Okay, I'm officialy am Mombo #9 fan....who is this woman and does she have ANY idea that she could make some serious money off her talent? (maybe even enough to pay for 1 hour of coaching (3 coaches at $85 and hour) or <gasp> 1 season's worth of costums!!!!
