Comebacks: Ando, Kim, Plushenko, Weir, etc.
Ando, YuNa, Plushenko, Weir are back!!
going to be amazing!!
I hope with Yu Na news that both Rochette and Lysacek come back!!
I wished Lepisto waited until the summer too before she made her decision. I am sure she could have came back too, it's never too late Laura!!
There was so much news about Lysacek last season, but I have not heard anything lately. I assume he is quietly training somewhere?
I'm glad to see all the names you listed as "returnees". I hope we hear something positive from Joannie (soon!) as well.
Last I remember reading out of Lysacek's camp was that he and the USFSA had *almost* reached an agreement and that he *hoped* to be back this season. Haven't seen anything since then suggesting he was actually coming back.
leave no stone unturned
^I thought I read about his new program, Sampson&Dalila.No?
how many times Plush comes back? Like a phoinix? Isnt a comeback the last season one?
I could've missed something. I honestly haven't kept up with skating news. I'm being sucked into the sport of dog mushing more and more -and even in that I can't keep up!
if you're being consumed with dog mushing even in the summer, we're going to have to alert you with a brass band during the skating season. You'll be completely engulfed with doggy splendor by autumn.

And Joannie is thinking over competing in Sochi
With the new TES rules for entries, she should probably try to compete this year to get the required scores (and to insure than Canada actually has a spot for the Olympics)

New IN article:
"Kostner may retire, Ando committed to competing: Last two ladies world champions heading in opposite directions"
I have been wondering whether Ando's heart is really in her comeback.
I cannot read Japanese, but some of the recent tweets that Ando has sent in English give the impression that she is seriously depressed. Skater friends, such as Misha Ge and Daisuke Murakami, have been trying to cheer her up.
Success on the ice doesn't necessarily bring happiness.
Best wishes to both Ando and Kostner, no matter what their futures hold!
Oh, no! Ando is depressed? That's sad to hear. I'm glad that she has friends who are trying to help her. Do any Japanese-speaking GS fans have access to reports or communications that they can share with us?
Yes, I follow her on Twitter too and some of her tweets are very sad. I am actually surprised how openly she tells about her feeling, almost like she would be seeking for a help. If her come-back is so difficult, she shouldn't force it. Also she seems to be very heartbroken.
