    No, not yet Ant, will post as soon as it's confirmed.

    [Though I'm not too happy, as I haven't got Sky Sports].

    No i don't have sky sports either! Figure skating is the only thing i watch and that's mostly on Europsport...though i noticed over christmas that the Michael Bolton on ice thing was on and repeated several times on sky sports.....;of course i'm not sure i could have watched a skating show that was entirely michael bolton songs...i don't like show skating enough to sit through that caterwaulling!

    Ant

    PS the new nisa website is up and looks like its 100 years on from the old one!

    They still haven't got any British results up yet though - well into the 2nd day of competition.

    Sky does tend to broadcast alot of packages of skating shows from America, usually around Christmas, but it's not worth paying the exhorbitant fee for.
    I still have my old Astra satellite dish that Eurosport International is on, it's great for Euros and Worlds, and the Tennis.

    Angela Court & Sandra Stevenson are there for the Times & Telegraph respectively, so hopefully we may get some press reports later in the week.
    Ant, if you spot any, please post a link. Cheers!

    Lightbulb Day 4

    Very interesting results in the Singles SPs today.

    [url]http://www.johnds.com/[/url]

    Great comeback by Jenna McCorkell, for a 10 point unnassailable lead!

    Incredibly close in the Men's, the podium could be made up any one of 5 or 6 skaters tomorrow, with the Winer still in doubt.

    The Dance Team for Warsaw will be as last year with the Kerrs and TG/P, but a contest for Bronze is developing, with the rapidly improving Trippick & Burns.

    Ant, where are you? [I'm talking to myself here!]

    Hamer & McCorkell win the titles.

    Vanessa James won the Free, but had too much ground to make up overnight after the SP, so Jenna stayed ahead overall. Hopefully Vanessa will be sent to JW with Jenna going to Warsaw.

    In the Men, once again Thomas Paulson had the best PCS scores, but didn't do enough technically, so John Hamer won another British title. Hopefully Thomas will come back stronger next year and win as he is clearly the more stylish skater of the 2, and I prefer the more artistic male skaters myself.

    Hmmm, sorry to disappoint you Ant, as I know you were looking forward to it, and I feel rotten having encouraged you to purchase tickets, but I've heard from other fans that the Blackpool shows with the Russian skaters have been cancelled.

    I don't know if they've contacted you, or you've heard anything, I've emailed the show's press contact, and will report back if I get a reply.

    Apparantly they couldn't guarantee all the skaters would travel to the shows... so decided to cancel.....

    Day 5 pics from the British should be coming up soon....Miffy is having a night out lol!
