Figure skating blogs from the AOC website.
Less than 280 days until Sochi and the Australian Olympic Commitee are posting blogs of athletes who will be competing or are in contention of an Olympic Spot next year. With increased events, Australia is expected to send it largest team ever- about 56-58 athletes which is nearly a 50% increase since Torino and Vancouver games.
One of these expected athletes is 17 yr old Brooklee Han. She is an amercian skater training in Conneticut, representing her father's nation, Australia. She began competing for Australia at major competitions since 2010 at junior worlds. This season, has been a break out season with a 12th place at the 4CC, 16th at Junior Worlds and 21st at worlds. She is hoping to grab Australia a spot at the Nebelhorn championship this September.
Here are her first two blogs. I hope there will be more blogs from other skaters too.
It's great to hear that Oz is sending so many Olympians to the Winter Games. I always root for them in the Summer Olympics. And though they are true underdogs here, having no winter whatever (not even a snow-capped mountain), they are always wonderful competitors, and I hope for a breakthrough athlete--maybe in skating.

I am still hoping O'Brien & Merriman will qualify in dance at Nebelhorn. Are they scheduled for a blog?
Good news! Here is the first blog from Danielle in the AOC website.
