    In response to queries much earlier in this thread:

    - Elizabeth Manley is at Skate Canada International, once again as part of Skate Canada's' official media team, it seems.
    She tweeted a group photo today.

    - Emily Hughes now works for the IOC in Lausanne, according to a relatively recent IceNetwork article.

    The article makes no mention of her (Katy Taylor) marital status but does say she is majoring in journalism with a minor in political science.

    How interesting about Emily! It must be such fun to work in Lausanne. Imagine the scenery!

    Whoops, I totally misremembered which IN article had the update on E. Hughes. It was this one:
    http://web.icenetwork.com/news/2013/10/08/62700042 (Oct 8 article re An Evening with Champions)

    I edited my post above to add the link there as well.

    The excerpt re E. Hughes and her job at the IOC:

    Hughes moved to Lausanne, Switzerland, a month ago.

    "I'm working in the sports department, on all the athlete-related programs," she said.
    Asked (jokingly) about becoming the IOC president one day, she said, "You never know! I just found out that they are elected every 12 years. It was fun to be there while the election was going on. There's a cafeteria there, and the new president, Thomas Bach, has been eating there with us."

    Hughes is in the early stages of learning French -- "I can say 'bonjour' and 'merci'" -- and she will attend the Olympics in February as part of her job.

    Should have added that the same IN article gave a little update on our beloved Emily Samuelson.

    Samuelson just graduated from the University of Michigan, where she is a part-time research assistant in the political science department, studying the energy sector in developing countries. She also coaches at the Ann Arbor Figure Skating Club.
    Samuelson's program in the show touched on a lot of emotions.
    "I miss skating so much," she said wistfully. "I would love to perform more."

    And the article begins with the Protopovs:

    To the delight of the crowd, Ludmila and Oleg Protopopov, the 1964 and 1968 Olympic pairs champions, returned to the show. Now 77 and 81, they can no longer do the death spiral they invented, but they still skate with classic elegance. They have only missed two shows since 1989.
    "We will continue as long as possible," Oleg said.
    "If everyone likes it, it's good for us," Ludmila added. "All our lives [the fans] supported us, and we cannot stop."

    (For the sake of completeness:
    The article also has quotes from Rachael Flatt, Nathan Chen, Isabella Cannuscio, Shawn Sawyer, and Harrison Choate.
    And briefer mentions of Kimmie Meissner; the Haydenettes; Josh Farris; Cannuscio/Bramante; Cannuscio/McManus; Kriengkrairut/Giuletti-Schmitt; Braden Overett; Paul Wylie; Next Ice Age; and Yasmin Siraj.)

    That's quite a moving section about the Protopopovs. They have lived a life devoted to skating. I wonder whether they coach at all. (I think they live in Switzerland?) Wouldn't it be something to spend even a small portion of time on the ice with these skating pathfinders?

    Judy Blumberg is an ISU technical specialist. She has done some coaching and choreo too.

    She is the ensemble director for Ice Theater of NY.

    She did some commentary for Universal Sports, and for CBS at various times, but hasn't the past couple years.

    Michael Seibert is a choreographer. He has choreographed for Stars on Ice and was assistant choreographer for Carmen on Ice.
