    BTW, here is a "class photo" from the Scott Hamilton show: the thirteen Olympic gold medalists from the US + the skaters (incl. Czisny) who performed. Boitano and Hamill belong to both groups .

    Well, I would think that it'd be good for her to skate in front of an audience too, just to get back into the swing of things. Are there reports elsewhere about her skate? (I haven't seen anything about what jumps she did/attempted at the show other than the IN article.)

    Also, since financial matters were mentioned and Ashley Wagner was reported to get a Nike sponsorship, has Alissa ever received any sort of sponsorship? I know she's a bit up and down with her results, but she's pretty marketable (certainly in terms of appearance and grace) and is the only repeat US ladies champion in recent years. I know she was featured in a commercial at some point, but don't think I've heard about actual commercial sponsorships.

    Sorry to inform you that Czisny withdrew from the show in Phoenix, Joannie Rochette is there instead. It seems that Czisny apparently suffered a set back in her training. Have no info on whether she will be ready for NHK, but from what I am hearing it doesn't look promising.

    This. And if she waits more than another day to do so, possibly denying somebody else an opportunity, then she goes down many notches on the bigsis' Respect Scale.

    Thx for the update, KKonas. Please keep us posted on Czisny's status for NHK and Nationals.

    Rochette already belonged to the cast of Holiday Moments on Ice anyway (http://www.dissonskating.com/2012/10...oments-on-ice/) -- but what a shame that Czisny has had a setback. :(

    "It's such an honor to be a part of this show," said Czisny, who was her usual exquisite self but struggled with her jumps. "I'm getting better. This is the first time I have really done anything. It hasn't been an easy process but hopefully, I will be ready for NHK [Trophy] (Nov. 23-25)."
    And here is a 1:31 IN video montage from the Scott Hamilton event.
    Czisny can be seen fleetingly as part of a group of ladies on the ice -- and then later (starting at approx. 0:34) by herself performing a spin.

    (The news posted above by KKonas re her training setback is more recent than the IN article.)

    ETA:

    Jeremy Abbott ‏@jeremyabbottpcf tweeted a nice off-ice photo of Czisny, Wagner, and himself at the Scott Hamilton event.
