Very nice profile of Christina Gao by USA Today (Jan 22):
Christina Gao juggles skating, Harvard studies
- An assortment of interesting details that give a good sense of her daily life juggling Harvard and skating (worth a read in entirety)
- Very brief mention near the end of the article (I hope of no consequence in Omaha):
"Though Gao is battling a recent groin pull, Johansson thinks she'll be fine this week."
- Apparent confirmation that she will compete again next season, no matter what :
"A top-two finish would send her to worlds in March. If she doesn't go, there's school, preparation for next season's Olympic push and perhaps even some skating for fun."
