Here is a link to the complete article that I've taken the excerpt from about Kimmie.
"Meissner finished fourth after singling her final two jumps; the second Lutz and the triple flip in combination. She said, 'I was really stupid at the end of my program. It was disappointing but the beginning was good. I stopped thinking, I guess." She landed four triples, opting not to try the triple Axel. "We decided that was a better choice under code of points until I am more consistent," Meissner explained.
Meissner competes here instead of the 2005 World Championships because she missed the 15 year old by July 1 ISU rule deadline, even though she was the US bronze medalist this January. Meissner's coach Pam Gregory called the rule "a stupid one." She then added, "Why not let the best compete?" Her coach felt Meissner peaked at the U.S. championships and that it was harder for Meissner to be as excited about the world championships since she competed at the event the year before and medalled (bronze)."
End quote from the article.
I'm always hesitant to take articles like this as gospel just because it's so easy for things to sometimes appear out of context. I was a bit wide eyed when I read the part about Kimmie's difficulty being excited about this competition. Heck, it's the World Championships for her age group! I hope this was some sort of misunderstanding on the part of the interviewer or Kimmie's coach rather than an indicator of "attitude" based on Kimmie's recent press.
I enjoy her skating and look forward to her continued development. Being in the spotlight prematurely is not always a good thing. I hope she doesn't fall prey to thinking she's a "star" long before she really is.
