I hate the title but couldn´t think of anything else.
So, all this attention on the Oly graduates . Brown, Gold, etc. What about the others? Christina Gao, Adam Rippon, Agnes Zawadzki - I´m sure you have your favorites. Any word? Will they keep going?
Seemed like in the old days - 1990´s - if a skater continued not to progress they dropped out, were not financially supported, etc. Now, it seems skaters - who are wonderful - but not advancing internationally stay in. I won´t name names.
Is the US spreading itself too thin? Or, is the newer philosophy fairer, giving skaters a chance to incubate longer?
