    Well during the ESPN coverage of Skate Canada, Terry Gannon said in skating news that she might compete ate the Russian Nationals. I know she didn't fully retire

    I thought she wanted to take the season off or something. Isn't she almost 30??

    Irina has shown that she can beat the youngins even at her "old" age.
    All of the "old guard" are aging: Irina, Michelle, Sasha, Shizuka.

    Thumbs up

    If that's what she really wants to do, then I hope she does. I'd love to see her compete again!

    We just saw her in "Country on Ice" in Philly on November 8. She skated to Dolly Parton's "9 to 5" & Gretchen Wilson's "Redneck Woman." (Gretchen Wilson was the musical guest for this show)

    Knock knock. Fumie.

    This doesn't surprise me, the Ira news. I hope it goes really well for her, incentive to stick around. Alas the new Bielmann rule, will it play out her way?

    In an article for Sports Illustrated at the beginning of the month, she refuted an article/interview in the Russian press (All Sport) which claimed that she had announced her retirement. (This was posted on a thread here that reported the original story from Russia.)

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200....ap/index.html

    "You know what, I don't want to say no," she said. "I miss the (Grand Prix) series, but if I want to come back, Russian nationals are in January, so I would have time to get ready. I don't think about anything because, right now, I have so much more to do."

    LOL. Alwasys amazes me that Sasha is lumped in with the group of "elderly skaters." She just turned 22.

    She's just so busy!

    Irina hasn't stopped since her GP run up to the Games! She's now busy doing skating shows, tv and commercials. I don't think she will be at Russian Nationals this year and if the offers keep coming for her as they have since Turino, I don't think she'll return to competition. There is nothing left for her to win other than OG and she'll be over 30 by the next Games, just don't see it happening.

    Here is a link to the latest commercial she's done as well as a photo:

    Press the blue word at the end to watch the commercial.

    You can find current Irina news at ISFF or her Russian board.

    Thanks for the news, WVgal. Is she selling coffee pots?

    The first link that you posted is incomplete. (If you copied and pasted from another board it doesn't pick up the full url.) Can you repost? (Go to the site and copy the whole url from the address bar.)

    Thanks. I know lots of people will want to see it.

    Well, if *some* Sasha fans felt Michelle was old at 21, then I guess Sasha must be old now. ;-)

    But she is older than the young up and comers. Elderly, probaby not. But neither is Irina at 28.
