What do you think will happen with Ann Patrice, as far as her skating is concerned? Has her time already come and gone? Will she bounce back and show the kind of promise she showed a few years ago as a youngster and start to place high in international competitions? Will Ann Patrice ever win a spot on a US World Team? What about the Olympics?
I recall that at last year's Nationals, Peggy Fleming stated (to paraphrase)
"Ann Patrice is now 18 years old. It seems that she has lost some of her edge during the past year, and it's showing in this performance." AP's skating was languid at best, and mediocre at worst. She wasn't fighting for the jumps and wasn't skating with a "go for it" attitude.
Has Ann Patrice already reached her peak?
