    AP article / news

    http://www.usolympicteam.com/cfdocs/...18&newsID=2470

    I want to add that in 03 USA nationals, AP was one double axel away from making the world team, she has potential.

    Best wishes for a new season. AP, please make sure you secure the viasa early this year.

    Interesting coaching techniques by her new coach, Christy Krall. Sounds like the woman has done her homework - it will be interesting to see how it takes with AP. Hopefully, she'll fix that leg on her spiral too - not pretty.

    Thanks for the article. I had the priviledge of seeing AP at COI this year and getting her autograph... she was very sweet and kind to all her fans. I wish her the best this season.

    Personally, I would have given AP third in the USA Nats 03. But I believe the USFSA had it set up that Kwan, Cohen and Hughes would be the 3 for the world team.

    I believe now, that AP will be given a third in US Nats since Hughes is not skating. Kwan and Cohen can give their worst skating performances but they will be held up.

    Too bad for Bebe, Jenny, Yebin, and NNN.

    At Worlds - Sasha was the favorite to win - Sarah was the Olympic Champ - Michelle...Well never underestimate Michelle so AP really didn't have a chance. This year is a different story. Sarah will not be skating at Nationals and Michelle has not said she will compete so it is possible there will be two spots open for next years Worlds Comp. The way things stand now, Sasha is the only "For Sure" to go to Worlds.

    I would like to see AP there next season and if Michelle sits out this year, I would like to see them give Yebin a shot at it.

    Without Michelle, both Nationals and Worlds will lose some of their luster.

    Sasha being placed ahead of AP was totally scandelous, especially when Sasha really isn't that much better of a skater than AP. Not that I like AP's skating that much either, but I would say AP has more solid basics than Sasha.

    AP seems younger than her age as a skater. Its like shes caught at a crossroads between cute little girl and a full grown skater. She also has a leg wrap. The page with the news even shows it. She also needs help really telling a story. She doesnt seem like worlds material yet, where as sasha has proven herself by placing highly in the GP and Olyms and worlds prior to her poor LP at nats. There are also lots of little things in AP's programs that lack polish. She lacks variety wihin each program. Her LP has the feel of an SP in that it seems like she is just cramming things in allover the place instead of showcasing herself as a skater.
