    Janet Lynn keynote at Gov council

    Janet Lynn's keynote address (close to an hour in length) is up on the video-archive at icenetwork.

    I have searched the entire site... including all of the Video Archives and have not found Janet Lynn's Keynote speech listed anywhere. Maybe it was up and taken down for some reason?

    Yes, it's no longer there. I was only able to listen to the first few minutes and then was hoping to come back to it, but no luck.

    There is discussion at FSU about Janet Lynn's speech being removed from the icenetwork video archive.

    A text of her speech can be found at:

    From what I have read, the controversy centers on whether the USFSA censored and deliberately suppressed Janet Lynn's remarks because they were not very flattering to the direction that figure skating seems to be headed these days.

    It is strange that she would praise school figures, since they often held her back. However, I have found new respect for Janet Lynn for speaking her mind. It matters not whether I agree or disagree with Janet, but that she spoke her mind.
