    Exclamation New USFS Bios.

    For those interested, the USFS has put up new bios of their marquee skaters such as Meissner, Hughes, Czisny, and Flatt. There are also new pics of the latter three.

    Main page

    Rachel Flatt bio (nice portrait here as well)

    Carmina Burana for Emily? Interesting choice, but looking forward to seeing it. Is David Wilson choreographing again? Last year, Mark Mitchell did her SP and David choreographed the long.

    Rachael Flatt's costume designer is Julie McDonough - is this Ann Patrice's mother???? Just as long as we don't have literal costumes (as in APs Swan Lake and Madame Butterfly numbers) and the number of sequins is tasteful....

    Caroline Z also has a new photo:
    http://www.usfigureskating.org/AthleteBio.asp?id=34948

    She lists locks of love as her favorite charity. Several people noticed she had cut her hair on the Champs Camp photos, maybe that's where her locks went? Good for her if that's true.

    Rachael Flatt & Caroline Zhang have the same choreographers: Tom Dickson for SP, Lori Nichol for LP. Interesting...

    I think Carmina Burana would work well for Emily: energetic & dramatic.

    How did they make Caroline and Rachael look so mature and sophisticated?

    Probably photoshop.

    Also, Katy Taylor's photo was updated.

    Though I think the height is wrong. She was listed a 5'0" last year, but I think she grew.

    Photoshop, yes, plus making the photos super-small. Larger photos either reveal more flaws or require more editing

    maybe not photo shop, but they are probably wearing plenty of makeup for these shots. Is alissa only 5"4 as her bio states? she appears much taller.

    Even 5-4 looks tall when you're standing amongst a bunch of 4-footers.

    It's not clear from Hughes' bio which choreographer did which program (Mark Mitchell and David Wilson are still listed as her choreographers).

    Here's my compilation of all the U.S. team envelope skaters' music known so far as published in their USFS bios (Halverson's and Dornbush's were added today; Czisny's is hearsay info): http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...644#post253644

    Rachael Flatt's costume designer is Julie McDonough - is this Ann Patrice's mother????
    Yes, it is. I believe McDonough has been Flatt's costume designer for a while now -- she does quite a few of the Broadmoor SC skaters' costumes.

    I actually don't like that picture. It seems so unflattering somehow.

    Rachael Flatt's bio names Becky Bradley as one of her coaches. Is that Ryan's mom?

    Older sister.

    From the "Notes" section of Ryan Bradley's bio: http://www.usfigureskating.org/AthleteBio.asp?id=34818
    "Bradley began skating at the age of 2 because his sister skated ... His sister, Becky, is now a figure skating coach."

    LOL, I don't get Emily Hughes' bio for this coming season. It says "Will compete as a senior nationally and internationally."

    ???

    Isn't that, like, totally obvious?

    EDIT: It says the same for Alissa Czisny too. (along with a very stunning picture...WOW)

    Emily is 18 and still eligible for Junior internationals, but Alissa just turned 20 and has been ineligible since last season.

    Emily's face looks like shes saying "If you don't hurry up and take that picture".
