    Shen and Zhao plan to compete in Vancouver

    http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/sports/...nt_6245920.htm

    I was so excited to hear this! Hopefully they can both stay healthy and win that Olympic gold medal! Their programs for Stars On Ice also sound great and I'm looking forward to seeing them

    Rock on Shen and Zhao!

    Great news. S/Z will be 36 and 30 respectively and if MK decides to comeback she will be 29. Interesting.

    I have said it before and I will say it again. If pair ever deserved an olympic gold, they do. 2010 will be thier fourth olympic games. If anybody could come back at thier ages it's them. So far, there have been no pair that is the obvious choice for the 2010 gold, no russian pair has yet taken the throne and pang and tong are not quite up to shen/zhao's level. If they compete they have a great chance of getting gold.

    I dont know where MK comes into this topic, she wasnt in the article at all. I like MK, but forget MK coming back, it isnt happening. If it were going to it would have been this year or last and seeing the jumping of the Asians at Worlds last year it definitely wont.

    On the other hand I am anxious to see if Shen/Zhou do comeback and how they do.

    You misunderstood my post. I was making an age comparison only, and not
    bringing MK into this thread, sorry if you were offended. Also I would appreciate not being lectured on what your opinion of MK's plans are for the future. I can form my own opinion, thank you very much.

    No need to apologize demarinis ... you can talk about whoever you choose to. I was going to respond that other than MK returning, this is the best news ever!!!!

    S/Z made the announcement at the CoC exhibition that they plan to come back to full training at least 1.5 year prior to Vancouver. So we should see them back next fall!

    It's that 2009 Worlds in Hollywood that will bring back all those old timers, S&Z, Plush, Yags, Sasha and who else? Everyone will be there. It will be the greatest show on earth. It would be nice if they use a red carpet for a reception prior to the competition. It's all about a test about should they go to Olys.
    Who knows? Maybe a movie contract for one of the skaters.

    I hate to step on your punchline but Staples Center is in downtown Los Angeles, hardly Hollywood

    Wonderful News

    I think if there is anyone on the planet that can come back and compete successfully in their 30's it is Shen and Zhao. I don't think Michelle will be coming back. Just my gut feeling. I think once you have major surgery on a joint it becomes more problematic. This wasn't simple orthopedic surgery that she had done. I also don't want her to come back like Katerina Witt did-a pale reflection of what she once was. I would just as soon treasure the wonderful memories of the greatest figure skater of all time.

    I don't see a problem travelling from Bel Aire (where the moguls are) to Staples Center. (I used Hollywood, as a generic thing)
