    ^^I think some reports on twitter said that Alissa would be coming into Moscow today (Weds). Haven't heard anything else. Curious about all the other ladies as well.

    Czisny is the featured star of Universal Sports' slide show.

    Hmm, @USFigureSkating tweeted this picture yesterday, announcing that the whole US team has arrived in Moscow, and Alissa was there: http://plixi.com/p/96159300

    that said, I don't think Universal Sports or Lynn Rutherford have tweeted about Alissa and Rachael's practices, which is surprising.

    ^^ Yup, just found it on IceNetwork, can't post the link but here are some tidbits:

    "Alissa Czisny hit the practice rink in Moscow for the first time this morning, looking relaxed and landing the majority of her
    jump attempts with ease."

    "The U.S. champion used a two-part travel strategy, arriving in Berlin on April 22 to spend a few days training at the Sport Forum, where Dungjen is taking part in an ISU pairs' seminar.
    He joins Sato and Czisny in Moscow tomorrow."

    Sato quote on Czisny's jumps today compared to the start of the season:
    "Her jumps are much better than even earlier in the season," "They are turning with more speed, and are more accurate."

    Can't wait! I just want her to skate her best...but bringing home a little hardware wouldn't hurt either

    LOL
    So I was at the Starbucks right near my home, in Hackensack, where she trains. It was about 7:40 in the morning...so I turn around and there she was, adorable!
    So I say "Miki! Hi"
    And she look at me, has a huge smile, and says "hello....I am sorry I dont remember you..."
    SO I explained I was a huge fan and that she didn't know me....
    She smiled and kept saying thank you..
    I then said "so, are you going to win worlds???"
    and she giggled and said "uhm....I think so??? Just like that, so cute!
    So then I went up to go and wait for my coffee after I ordered, and right behind me again was Miki.
    She then started talking to me, asking where I lived, etc...
    She said all of her family in Japan was OK, but her and the other Japanese skaters were not too happy about worlds, but they had to go....she mentioned some of the Japanese team where not so lucky with their families, but did not mention names.
    She was incredibly sweet, engaging, and so so so so pretty. Everyone who worked at the Starbucks knew her, and apparently she always orders Earl Gray tea!
    Made me a bigger fan....

    Aww, that is a sweet story! How lucky for you to meet her like that I can imagine how the Japanese skaters must feel about not really wanting to go to worlds, but knowing that they have to. Nevertheless, I'm sure they will give it their all!

    I've been wondering about this since the earthquake... The plot thickens and I am officially rooting for the Japanese skaters...
