    Of course. It's Vaughn. His 3A is the best in the world.

    Anyhoo, dance4u. Thank you so much for sharing the story of Vaughn's mom and the family. I am deeply moved by her sacrifice for her son.

    If Vaughn is assigned to Skate Canada 2008, and she want to come over to Ottawa to see him and his loyal fan, please let me know. I would love to meet and greet with her.

    Best 3 Axel by far was Andreev's from the SP. It was textbook perfect.

    Vaughn's short program 3 axel was more than text book ask Kurt Browning. Don't get me wrong Fedor has a beautiful 3 axel but Vaughn's is better, Vaughn doesn't look as pretty as Fedor, not as dreamy

    I think he is showing a huge potential here. Way to go Elladj.

    Can you direct me to wher this story was posted? I always love personal interest stories about where skaters got to where they are with the love, support, and often endless sacrifice of families.

    Thanks

    Vaughn Chipeur in the SP, hands down. I think that's the best triple axel in the world, not just in Canada.

    Vaughn's triple axel was certainly the most powerful, but Fedor's was the most beautiful. I've always enjoyed that little extra flair on the landing of jumps more than pure athleticism, so I'd have to go with Fedor's triple axel.

    Um, you do realize that this thread is about the 2008 Canadian Nationals, don't you? I fail to see the relevance of your post.
