    I also think Elizaveta needs to step it up, how about adding her 3A at Youth Olympics ?
    I don't think there is that much pressure here and it will be just like Junior Grand Prix/Worlds were
    they have to contend with Adelina and Elizaveta battling each other .
    Yes please! I think that she should start doing it just so she can get practice because, honestly, the worst thing that will happen is that she falls on her *** for a while and loses a bunch of junior competitions that no one really cares about which will lower pressure on her over the long run. But the triple axel will need time before she can get it consistent in competition.

    well, like I said I don't think there isn't that much pressure here
    so its good for Liza to try new things although yes, there is a high chance Liza will fall on her 3A as it needs more consistency and practice
    but I still think she should give it a shot, Adelina has been rebounding from her GP events

    Opening of YOG is January 13

    The women's (girls) free skating competition is scheduled to start at 23:30? Seriously? These kids should all be in bed by that time.

    NOC is National Olympic Committee (essentially a country participating in the event). A Mixed NOC team is a team comprised of athletes from multiple countries. Here's the page from the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics on the subject, from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mixed-N...Youth_Olympics

    Just got back from the Opening Ceremonies. It was pretty packed and sold out! Ceremonies were nice, nothing special but appropriate for the occasion.

    It was a very special moment for the city of Innsbruck though: After 1964 and 1976, Innsbruck is the first city in history to host the Olympic family for a third time. The 1964 and 1976 cauldrons were lit by the Olympic downhill champions Egon Zimmermann and Franz Klammer. The Olympic flag was carried into the stadium by a several former Olympic champions from Austria, including ski jumpers Toni Innauer and Karl Schnabl. Can't remember who lit the third couldron.

    Yuna was one of the athletes carrying the Olympic torch. They were climbing up the stairs towards us when she stopped 10m away from me to hand the torch over to someone else. She then stood there without anyone taking notice of her (hey, Austria is a skiing country, no one knows anything about figure skating here ) Everyone was so focused on the torch and the 3rd cauldron to be lit and I thought, well, this is my chance to just walk up to her and say hi! So I did! And I took a photo with her and thanked her in Korean

    Here are photos from the opening: http://news.daylife.com/search/photo...fe&q=innsbruck

    Some more news concerning YOG:

    Ice skating Princess Alexandra of Hanover's maternal uncle, Prince Albert of Monaco, is attending the event as well (his grandfather Jack Kelly was a 3-time Olympic Gold Medalist in Rowing back at the turn of the last century):

    Also, it was announced yesterday that Prince Albert is the new Patron of the World Olympians Association:

    This is all good for figure skating because his 12 yr. old niece, Princess Alexandra of Hanover, has been competing for the last 2 yrs. in Europe.
