I'm so glad you asked about Magnussen. We haven't had word of her since that awful incident at the skating rink. I hope she has recovered.
Wicked Yankee Girl
May 2012, she was still having severe respiratory and other problems, and feared she would never be able to enter a rink again. I don't see anything since then.
What about Abitbol Bernadis? They were so fun to watch! Is Sarah married?
Others I am interested in: Schwarz-Muller, Writz-Writz, Yulia Soldatova, Tatiana Malinina, Kimmie Meissner, Aleksander Abt (he is a troublemaker these days, isn't he?) Tonya Harding. I know Tonya gave a birth to a baby boy in 2011.
There are so many on ice/off ice couples in this sport but I noticed most of them don't have children. I know it's not my business. I'm just curious.
That is just awful. Awful. And all through the facility's negligence. There's got to be a way for this woman to regain a rewarding life, whether they can cure her physically or not.

[QUOTE=golden411;765286]Some other bits:
Kadavy and Trenary were among the guests at the Broadmoor Skating Club's 75th Anniversary celebration a few weeks ago. Photos from the event were floating around on social media.
[INDENT]ETA, a couple of Trenary photos:
Thank you for these photos.
Looking good Jill!!!
Here's a picture of Jill Trenary with Caryn Kadavy and Christa Fassi: [URL="http://gazette.com/gallery/articleid/1504938/1/pictures/296960"]http://gazette.com/gallery/articleid/1504938/1/pictures/296960[/URL]
Gotta Have Music
kasik8222, Kimmie skated in Michael Weiss' Foundation show on 9/15/13. She's in college, and has about another year to go. IIRC, she's also doing some coaching. She continues her involvement with the Cool Kids Campaign (for kids with cancer).
Celebrating the Excellence of #VirtueMoir
Regarding Manley, archived (2012-2013) GoldenSkate thread pertaining to her interest in the issue of mental health and her performance in an ice show for the benefit of the cause.
(Disclaimer: I have no idea whether video of her performance exists.)
I would like to know what skaters are doing for a living especially those who did not make it to the top. Like is it true Sandhu was working at the Gap. Jamie Sale remarried well a former pro hockey player who owns ome kind of flooring business. What does Holly Cook do. How much work is Nicole Bobek getting to skate. Linda Fratianne and Lisa Marie Allen what happened to them. Tracey Wainmann I think coaches. What about Angela Nikodivnov or Tonya Harding. I know at one time a Canadia Kay Thomson was doing nudes on ice but what happened afterwards. Same for Karen Preston and Josee Chouinard from Canada. I know susan Humphries married a doctor and coaches and Debi Thomas is a doctor as is Tenley Albright. What about janet lynn, charles tickner, susanna drianao, elaine zayak, sydne vogel, tiffany chin (she is coaching i think), the hughes sisters I know were academically gifted but what are they doing, what happens after skating if you do not coach or do the few shows left. Where do you go.
Thank you Oreo. That is a great shot of the three ladies!

I was wondering about Nikodinov too. Last I heard, she was doing coaching in Bulgaria, but is she still doing that? The last skate of hers I saw was her "There You'll Be" tribute to her mom on Ice Wars. Has she done any more recent performances?

Janet Lynn has been married for many years and I think was a traditional stay-at-home mom, raising her five children.
In terms of strictly skating-related careers, skaters can get certified as technical specialists, but I doubt that pays the rent. (I think both Petrenko and Tim Goebel have done that.) I suppose that some skaters who are business-minded can get into administration, in not just skating-specific organizations such as the USFSA but also general sports bodies such as the AAU. There's also choreography and costume design, or possibly some sort of work associated with an actual rink or sports complex. In other countries, several familiar skaters are or have been officials in their respective countries' skating federations (Albena Denkova in Bulgaria and Petrenko in the Ukraine have both been presidents of their federations).
and... World Peace!
She's also active in her church, national politics (not running for office or anything but she's vocal for conservative issues), and is a national speaker - mainly church type functions.
