    I think it's the high altitude training and a good personality match with Krall that are most valuable to Patrick. The rest he can find elsewhere.

    I meant that I don't see much training benefit for Patrick after Krall recruited so many skaters.

    I think so far Krall is handling it OK with the team. After all she was only working part time when she took Patrick on. Patrick is her star and very special student and I don't think she would jeopardize his training and their relationship for others. Armin's bio lists four coaches: Christy Krall, Eddie Shipstad, Catarina Lindgren, Kathy Casey. With Patrick's success, Krall is the name and head coach skaters come for but they also work with other instructors and specialists in the centre.

    Who is the little Sugar Plum Fairy opposite Patrick's Nutcracker Prince? Did she continue in skating?

    I would ask if she continued ballet after Patrick chose skating. That was the one photo I had not seen.

    It just struck me how proud Patrick and his parents were about his skating, what with all the studio portraits of him in princely skating regalia.

    hmmm... I thought it's only natural they were proud of his skating, with his cute looks and unusual talent.

    Here's Patrick cheating on the Sugar Plum Fairy! It's Alyssa he's hanging on to.

    And here he's with Joey.

    I lifted these from this page on 2003 Nationals when Patrick won Pre Novice. He's also in a couple of group photos.

    Looks like Joey was a serious competitor for Alyssa!

    Apparently there is a picture of the Pre-Novice medalists - Patrick, Joey Russel, and Simon Beaudoin - that my computer wouldn't show.

    Oh, wow!!! Was that Alissa?! I've seen this photo but I'd have never guessed that was Alissa! She was so average looking then but turned out to be such a beautiful young lady!!! Alissa is not just a woman. She is a lady!

    ^^^ You're thinking of Alissa Czisny but the girl with the 12 year old Patrick is Alyssa Crosbie of Newfoundland, currently a business student.

    I automatically assumed Alyssa was Alissa Czisny. Don't know Alyssa Crosbie at all.
