    Pairs has become the unwanted step-child of the figure skatig family. It ought to be the most fascinating, considering the skills involved.
    Ahh, not to me. I have always loved pairs the best. Ice dance seems to get more attention on these boards, but there are still some people out there that like pairs better.

    Brrr, Ice-Dance. If I wanted to watch politics, I would watch the news.

    I think they only do the Champs Camp to make lots of embarrissing photographs of everyone - but good for us, I can't wait for the next bunch of pictures.

    well, I did see pictures of Zhang, Nagasu and Wagner...are they not the "top dogs"? In America, at least? the only one I see missing is Flatt.

    I cracked up at the one captioned 'Carriere acts as Adam Rippon's stylist'.

    It's 2nd from the end in this gallery:

    Medusa, what a nice close-up of Yuko you've got there.

    ^Thanks. It's actually part of one of my Wallpapers. I felt momentarily bad for having produced something that kitschy - but then I remembered her attire during the World's long program and didn't feel so bad about it anymore.


    The Carriere / Rippon photo is really nice. They look soooo young though.

    i find it intriguing only one picture with caroline zhang and that is where mirai crept up on her and hugged her(in fun) even though it look like caroline zhang was caught off guard a bit.
    hardly any pictures of caroline with the other skaters (why). it tell me more than they (usfsa) like. all not good

    Then they probably loathe their reigning World Champion, Lysacek. There is not one photo of him.

    Reposted the following from the Caroline Zhang thread in The Edge forum:

    Lysacek is not the only skater not pictured in the Champs Camp photos through Saturday (Brandon Mroz and Kim Navarro are 2 others and there are a couple more as well).

    Added today on the front page of the USFS site: "Icenetwork.com has photos, blogs and a soon-to-come video roundup from Champs Camp 2009."

    A photo of Evan Lysacek (standing with Brittney McConn Bottoms) has magically appeared as the first pic in the Saturday gallery: http://web.icenetwork.com/gen/photog...cf5337892.html
