    Bebe

    Check out her bio ... quite impressive ...

    She is active in classical piano competitions ... She learned her first Mozart concerto at age 6, only half a year after starting lessons ... She maintains a full load at her high school ...

    She's on my special list. She'll be fighting for a place at the US Nats.

    Somehow I'm having a hard time believing that. Mozart piano concerto after 1 year of starting piano at 6... Is she like the second coming of Mozart??

    Except that Mozart was composing keyboard music at 6, LOL.

    "She (Bebe) is active in classical piano competitions ... Has won numerous piano awards, the latest being a bronze medal from the Southern California Junior Bach Festival in September 2002 ... She learned her first Mozart concerto at age 6, only half a year after starting lessons ... She performed as the soloist with the Pasadena Summer Youth Orchestra when she was 9 ... She maintains a full load at her high school ... She has been a straight-A student every year since the first grade and graduated as elementary valedictorian in the sixth grade (receiving the Founders' Award Scholarship)."

    Well, maybe it was only a sonata. Still, WOW!

    Sorry, the link doesn't work for me.
    Who's "Bebe"? Really someone I should know?

    Bebe (Beatrisa) is the next Olympic champ! At least if Joe has anything to say about it. Try copying and pasting the link into your address bar.

    She is amazing! Let's hope she does what Sarah did and skates with her heart and soul.

    Heck, Bebe's already skated at the Olympics! Of course in SLC it was just in the opening, but who knows in Turino!

    Anke, I wouldn't be at all surprised with a Japanese lady winning the OGM. Or Kostner. And you've got a good point: a better description for Bebe might be a future US champion and leave the World predictions until she (and those other little upcoming skaters) have at least managed to win their Nationals.

    Anke and Doris - Part of my somewhat off the wall prediction has to do with Bebe's age. How far do you have to go back to find an OGM in the Ladies Division where the winner was not a teenager?

    As for the Japanes Ladies, I agree, and I think Yukina Ota will be the tough competition. Kostner? Ok, a bronze.

    Unless they pull a Sarah Hughes and don't even bother to win a Nationals before winning an OGM! :D
