    I think I read recently that Stellato became a cosmetologist or something similar.

    According to her wikipedia entry, Lisa Marie Allen has done some choreography:

    assistant choreographer for the feature film Blades of Glory, and assistant choreographer for the opening and closing Ceremonies of the Salt Lake Olympic Games.
    I found this blog post about her:







    Tuesday, October 31, 2006


    WHERE ARE THEY NOW: LISA-MARIE ALLEN



    Three-time (1978-1980) US Silver Medalist Lisa-Marie Allen reveals in 2006, "I prefer to be introduced as an Olympian. It is the one privilege that is always honorable and something that I am proud to always be. Back in my competitive days, if you didn't get the Gold you were pretty much ignored. This has changed in the last 20 years due to the commercial success of the Olympic Games and what visibility they have brought to us in many ways.

    "I retired from amateur skating in 1981. I made an effort to win the Ladies title that year but had an injury the week of competition and finished third. Not the best year of my life, indeed! I really had no preconceived notion as to a career in skating. I joined The Ice Capades, traveling with them for three years. Followed that up with marriage and the birth of my daughter. Went back to skating and teaching and finally stopped performing in 1998, with the exception of the Salt Lake Olympic opening and closing ceremonies, where I was also one of the choreographers. Which segues to currently being associate choreographer on the feature film Blades of Glory starring Will Farrell. It's been a great career and truly a blast to see what comes next."

    Lisa shares, "There are so many memories (of skating). I would have to say that the times when you are traveling with your teammates and really become great friends in the process. I still maintain these friendships as though they are my college buddies. Meeting the President of the United States was surely a highlight, along with being flown to DC on Air Force One. My favorite professional memory, hmmmm, that's a lot of years! I really enjoyed the trips to Jaca for the World Pro Competition. On my third trip, the Mayor of Jaca said "Welcome home, Lisa-Marie." It was very special because I won that year!

    "I have been blessed in many ways. I have a wonderful family and we split our time between Los Angeles, California and Sun Valley, Idaho. My husband is very supportive in any challenge that I take on. My daughter is currently an Honors student at Boston College and loving it. My two golden retrievers keep me honest with exercise. I still love to skate and do when I can. I had to retire the Double Axel a few years ago, but did manage to get my senior moves in the field test two years ago. I may have never won the US title, but I have surely won in life."

    As for the folks who were wondering where Lisa-Marie Allen is now, she concludes, "I suppose my only message would be "thank you" for enjoying what I was able to bring to skating. I was a little cowgirl that had dreams of spending her life on the back of a horse. Little did I know how God had his own plan for me. Thank you!!!!"

    Paul Wylie and his kids will be in the Disson show that is taping this coming weekend - it will be televised. Kimmie will be in the Disson Christmas show that is taping the week after and will also be televised. https://www.facebook.com/#!/DissonSkating

    Lots of faces we don't see much these days (Zimmerman, Slutskaya, etc.) and their children in the family show - should be fun.

    Thank you for the link. Nice to see Kimmie again with her friendly warm and a little shy smile.

    Re Sarah Hughes, a random cool fact for history buffs and/or the person who asked about her much earlier in the thread:

    Christine Brennan ‏@cbrennansports
    On JFK 50th anniversary, this Olympic note: 2002 figure skating gold medalist @SarahHughesNY was named after judge who swore in LBJ.

    @SarahHughesNY
    @cbrennansports you have a good memory!! Honored to be named after an influential historical figure, and, to be remembered by you.

    Wondering what happened to several young Russian skaters like:
    Julia Lee
    Polina Agafonova
    Polina Shelepen - is she not competing this season??

    Julia Li skated on the JGP this season but due to a poor placement at her 1st event she did not receive a second one. She is now coached by Volchkova. She will be at Junior Nationals year. I don't think she has a 3/3 yet.

    Agafonova is now coached by Rukavitsyn (Menshov's coach) and has skated at internal competitions within Russia. Was 4th at Cup of Nice last month and will compete at NRW trophy at the end of next week. She has a problem rotating her jumps this season that may cost her a spot to nationals (poor results at her qualify comps).

    Shelepen is coached by Sokolovskaya at CSKA where Kovtun and Sotnikova trains. She skates for Israel and has sat out this season due to injury but will compete next season.

    Does anybody know if Russian Pairs skater Tatiana Danilova is still skating competitively?

    I just saw on Facebook that it's her 20th birthday today, and it made me realise that it's been a long time since I last saw her in action.

    I think he married, or at least had a baby with a figure skater. I think it was gold medal pair skater Tatiana ? &2006 OLY GM with Max? Sorry cant recall last names, never liked that pair much. I think he does shows in Russia, but he was very injured when he retired from SOI I think. I don't think he could jump much any more.

    Yes, that's correct : Tatiana Totmianina-he was involved with a campaign to promote healthy lifestyles in Russia back in 2011, too.
    Alexei does not want his daughter to grow up to be a competitive skater

    considering the injuries both parents sustained through the years, I don't blame him.
