Thread: Anyone have news about Katy Taylor?

  1. #1

    Anyone have news about Katy Taylor?

    Is she going to be competing this season? How is she doing health wise? I haven't heard any updates probably since Nationals and I'm just wondering how she is and what her plans are.

    The last I heard about Katy was from the same source you did; that article several months ago; I believe January. And before that, she took the early part of the 07 - 08 season off due to a foot injury. Since then, I've heard zero. No articles, no reports, no pictures, no nothing.

    I spoke with a couple of partnerless skaters who said she won't skate Pairs. I wish she would. She would be, imo, perfect for that division.

    There was a little discussion on the ISU board from early June.

    Last I heard, Katy had graduated from high school and was in the process of getting back into skating shape and preparing for a possible comeback this season at SW Regionals without much public fuss or fanfare.

    Thanks for the update, Sylvia. That's the first real news I've read in quite some time. I hope she makes a splash at regionals, which can't be more than 2 or 3 months away. I have been looking for an article on her graduation, but couldn't find any.

    She is scheduled to perform at Skate for Hope on August 31 in Columbus, OH. I'll be attending, so I can let you know how she looks....

    Sounds like with a healthy body, healthy mind, less pressure and a sense of fun - she'll hopefully have a lot of reasons for people to support her comeback.

    Pairs is also a great suggestion - as she seems to have the size and sparkle to really make an impact... would need to find some guy willing/able to pull of a side-by-side triple lutz though as that always seemed to be her "money" jump.

    We're rooting for you Katy.

    Thanks for the info. I'm glad to hear she will be back competing this season.

    I just checked out the link above and want to point out that Katy's answer (quoted above) was from FSO's 2007 summer series of questions.

    Nothing is for certain yet -- we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

    If you go to http://www.skatingcircle.com/ , which appears to be a new skating web page, and do a video search for "Katy", a video comes up of Katy skating in the Skate For Hope show. I don't know which year. The problem is that I can't get the video to play.

    I've never used this icon before....... :banging:
