I'm happy she's going to continue . . . hope it works out for her.
I missed this announcement. I'm really pleased to hear it. I think that in the lead-up to an Olympic year, this is the commitment she must make. I hope this change makes a difference in her performance and her results. What she reminds me of right now is Kristi Yamaguchi, who was excelling at dividing her time between singles and pairs but never made it to the world podium in either discipline. In the few years before the 1992 Olympics, she realized (or was told) that she had to make a choice in order to make that final move upward. When she did choose, even the sky wasn't the limit.
