I have seen unofficial photos of D/W with Nagasu and Rippon over the last couple of days ... but I was guessing that they all were taking advantage of their proximity to socialize together on their own time. (Am I correct that Rippon and Nagasu live and train in southern California?)
Of the skaters mentioned in this post, only D/W are virtually certain to qualify for Sochi. Wonder what the criteria are for attending the media summit.
Does NBC choose the participants? Or is it the USOC?
KKonas, if you are reading this thread, can you shed light?
Is it possible that Nagasu and Rippon were invited too? If so, again the mind then quickly wonders which other Sochi hopefuls were deemed worthy.
(I see now from USFS tweets today that Gold also is there ... so I guess whoever is in charge of choosing the athletes is casting a wide net. Not saying that she is an extremely long shot, but like the others, she is hardly a slam dunk on the level of D/W.)
