Columnist Joann Barnas reports that Jenny was sick in bed with the flu for two weeks after Nationals. This is why she had to withdraw from Four Continents. She has just now returned to practice, with renewed health and optimism. She is planning two triple-triple combinations at Worlds, a 3t/3T and a 3F/3T.
I love this skater. I hope she makes the podium at Worlds. She has both the technical talent and the on-ice personality to take it all the way, lacking only the emotive depth that makes Michelle Kwan supreme.
